  • Q. I like Interceptor a lot. I travel by bike daily. What about its mileage? Whether the parts are available easily?

    See basically its a 650cc modern classic, we cant compare it with any 150-250cc commuters. I ll say you should not look at it as your daily commuter if mileage is your only concern. Rest if you want the thrill of riding its unbeatable at this price point. I frankly never have calculated the mileage but mostly it wont be more than 18-20kmpl.

    Yes i have INT 650 . I have driven maximum 280 km in a day around neighboring towns. I did feel any strain at end of the day.Still i have not toured in my INT 650 . Next month i am planning 5 day tour to Kerala. Mileage in town driving i get 25 KMPL. In highways till 80 KM/HR i get 28 KMPL - 30 KMPL. If you burst the throttle crossing 100 KM/HR then the mileage will be 20 KMPL - 22 KMPL. I have clocked 5500 km in my INT 650.

  • Q. How is the performance - Interceptor 650?

    A 648cc parallel-twin motor with a 270-degree crank which gave the ideal starting point for this new generation of Enfield. Output figures of 47.65PS at 7250rpm and 53Nm at 5250rpm aren’t dazzling to say the least, but it will delight those who are upgrading from Enfield’s singles, especially the 350s. A 4-valve head helps the engine burn fuel more efficiently while a counterbalance shaft is also thrown into the mix to reduce vibrations. And this has paid dividends, as there are no vibrations to speak of; not even a hint of buzziness at any rpm whatsoever. For the first time in Royal Enfield’s history, you get a six-speed transmission with a slip-and-assist clutch. Shift action is extremely smooth with one hardly requiring the clutch for quick upshifts. Needless to say, clutch action is light and there’s no strain on your left hand even in bumper-to-bumper traffic. Considering it weighs 200 plus kilos with fuel on board, the performance figures are pretty impressive. 0-60kmph takes 2.87 seconds, while the 0-100kmph dash is done in 6.54 seconds. To put that in perspective, it’s actually 0.1 second quicker to sixty and 0.4 seconds slower to hundred than the more torquey Harley-Davidson Street 750. Nearly 80 per cent of the Interceptor’s torque is available from 2500rpm and begins to taper off at around the 6000rpm mark. Therefore, it does manage impressive in-gear acceleration figures. The 30-70kmph run in third gear is completed in 3.9 seconds, while it takes 4.85 seconds for the 40-80kmph run in fourth gear. Here’s where the Street 750 has a distinct edge. However, when compared to something like the performance-oriented KTM 390 Duke, the Interceptor is just a whisker away. It shines on the highway too. Slot the bike into sixth gear and you are able to pull off from speeds as low as 50kmph, all the way up to 170kmph. Yes, it cracks the ton (British term for doing 100mph, roughly equating to 160kmph) but you will need to brave the strong windblast that you will experience due to the upright seating position and lack of aerodynamics. We found that cruising at around 120kmph, with the revs hovering around the 5k mark, the Interceptor sings a sweet tune. A fuel efficiency figure of 26kmpl in both city and highway is fairly decent for a motorcycle of its size and cubic capacity. With a range of close to 350km, thanks to the 13.7-litre fuel tank, the Interceptor will be more than happy to go cross country.

  • Q. Will it be comfortable to ride on off-road. - Interceptor 650?

    Only to a certain extent..this motorcycle is not meant for dedicated off roading..but I did try some off roading here and there and it handles well. This is kind of an all rounder motorcycle and best suited on the highways

  • Q. Is it comfortable for daily office commute of 60kms total distance? I know it would be great highway cruiser, but what about city drive ability in traffic - Interceptor 650?

    I guess people who ask about 650 knows the displacement size of the engine and any engine of that capacity is expected to get heated when it does not get enough cooling. Considering the RE 650 being an air-oil cooled engine, it should warm up as well! But its not a microwave that can be used to cook your thighs. Surprisingly and fortunately it does not heat up that much that you would consider as "heating issue"! I don't understand why people are talking about heating issue so much. One should always understand its a mid capacity tourer and commuter motorcycle and not a low displacement commuter motorcycle such as splendour. And this bike is anyways not meant for people who are stuck for daily 3 hrs of office traffic. People should know what this bike is going to be used for and set their expectations accordingly.

  • Q. Is the Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 reliable?
    Pranav
    Pranav | 8 months ago

    Yes, it is. Highly reliable! Just keep it well serviced.Don't compare it with the other RE models. You can feel the Quality difference between those and the 650 twins. This bike comes with a bare minimum tech and reduces the complications associated with it making your life lot easier than running around the service centers for tech related issues as that can't be fixed in your parking. Also please avoid achieving top speed targets on this bike, this bike is not meant for top speeding like the Kawasaki or the KTMs. Its a practical bike and its range would be till 140 kmph, ofcourse it goes beyond that easily, but it's not it's comfort area and you would lose the torquey nature of the engine there. Also that will affect your mileage! And in the long run as well!It is as easy as to say you take care of your 650 and the bike would take care of you as well!And this bike won't age early and will continue to last for years unlike the sports competitors that age in 3-4 years and make you urge for a new motorcycle.Technology would always get old and would need an update every now and then. But a classic would always remain a classic and would indulge you to feel the ride. Now you decide for yourself.

  • Q. Hi Brother,I have booked RE Interceptor, since you are daily user of this bike one suggestion I need i.e. heating measure of this bike since my 70% of commute is on city roads. Please advise.

    In city especially stopping on signals we can feel the heat more. On move the heat reduces to bare minimum level . Definitely heating is more the other RE models. Because it is air cooled engine with radiator for oil cooling only.

    Today I'm struck here at a village in Imphal, Manipur at 0730 AM, waiting for the RSA to arrive. Nothing can be more painful when you spend around 3 lakh rupees on a product and it makes you regret your decision of buying it just after 3 months. My interceptor 650 has developed starting problems due to a faulty Relay Circute of fuel pump as I was told by Sanemahi Service Center at Imphal when rectifying the same problem yesterday. Poor workmanship and poor service by RE. Avoid purchasing the product if you can.

    @ Rahul | Im currently using RE Electra 350 cc , I have rode around 1500 Kms on my recent trip, I felt this isn’t a perfect bike for touring because of the breaking capability and vibration effect after 60 Speed. So I personally looking for Interceptor 650 is that a good decision??

    INT 650 is least vibration bike in RE stable but not zero vibration bike. Good for touring with altered seat. But wait for couple months so RE has to sort out , Value noise & Clattering noise in INT 650. The front suspension & T-Steam is not strong enough for that bike.Pl wait for the updated version. RE might recall INT 650 for a massive part change campaign.
