Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 Latest Updates

Royal Enfield has revised the prices of its entire range. After the revision, the Interceptor 650 starts from Rs 2,85,970 and goes up to Rs Rs 3,10,001 (ex-showroom). For variant-wise pricing, check out our story.

An interesting test mule of the Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 has been spotted. And it bears a new exhaust system that could make it easier to live with. Full details in our story.

The 120th Year Anniversary Edition of the Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 was recently unveiled at the 2021 EICMA show in Milan, Italy. It comes with several painstaking attention-to-detail bits, and you can read more about what makes this variant special here. For its pricing, check this out. If you’re planning to buy one, you’d be disappointed (and also surprised) to know that every single bike on the roster was sold out in under two minutes!

For 2021, Royal Enfield had given its 650 twins a fresh set of colours and a few additional bits and bobs to spruce them up. While the changes are merely cosmetic, the asking price went up considerably. But thankfully, the bike still remains the most affordable multi-cylinder bike that you can buy in the country and it still offers a soulful riding experience. More details on the colour updates in our story here.

In March 2021, a souped-up Interceptor, built by Mid Life Cycles, managed to obliterate the land speed record for a 650cc motorcycle in Australia. Here are more details on that amazing feat.

Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 Engine

The Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 BS6 continues to use the same 647.9cc air-cooled and fuel-injected powerplant. It delivers the same 47PS and 52Nm as its BS4 predecessor. It gets a 6-speed gearbox with a slipper clutch. The Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 BS6 continues to use the same underpinnings as before. It gets a dual-cradle frame with telescopic forks and dual gas-charged shock absorbers. Braking is via a 320mm front and 240mm rear disc brake with dual-channel ABS. It gets 18-inch aluminium wheels shod with Ceat Zoom Cruze tyres.

Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 Design

The Interceptor 650 BS6 gets a simple yet eye-catching retro design. The BS6 and BS4 Interceptor 650s look identical and Royal Enfield have even managed to neatly hide the catalytic converter underneath the motor. In fact, the only way to tell them apart is by a BS6 stamp on the BS6 motorcycle’s engine cooling fin. It continues to be available in six colours: Orange Crush, Silver Spectre, Mark 3, Ravishing Red, Baker Express, and Glitter and Dust.

Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 Features

The Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 BS6 gets basic features such as a halogen headlamp setup, bulb tail lamp and bulb turn indicators. It gets a twin-pod analogue instrument console with a digital inset. The console includes the speedometer, tachometer, with a digital fuel gauge and odometer.

Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 Competitors

The Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 BS6 has no direct competitors, except for its sibling: the Royal Enfield Continental GT 650 BS6. Price-wise, it competes with the KTM 390 Duke BS6.

What is good and bad in Interceptor 650?

  • Interceptor 650 Positives

    Most affordable multi-cylinder bike in India, Power delivery is linear and friendly but still exciting, Extremely refined.

  • Interceptor 650 Negatives

    Not the most feature packed, Uncomfortable pillion ergonomics, Rear suspension is set up a bit too soft.

  • Expert's Conclusion

    Surprisingly, the Interceptor 650 feels less like a Royal Enfield and more like a 90’s Honda -- such is the refinement level and performance on offer. The motor is a gem with loads of torque from the get go and a nice soundtrack accompanying it. Quality and fit and finish levels are quite good and the motorcycle feels built to last. This is easily the best Royal Enfield out there.

    Excellent bike.I never thought royal enfield will make such powerful bike absolutely game changer for royal enfield.It is the best bike i have driven till date best in every aspects like performance, Braking, Comfort; you can actually drive for long distance with in one stretch, Seat is very comfortable for rider as well as pillion.Best things about bike is engine itself "mind blowing performance" and also slipper clutch is pro for the bike.Worst thing is bike wobble sometimes while driving, Fuel meter will not show the right indication, Main drawback is no tubeless tyre.Over all performance is mind blowing ones you cross the 3k rpm you'll get crazy.Mid range and high end performance is great.I got a mileage about 30-32 km which is high way mileage and 22-27 km in city which is great.Pickup is like you are launching a rocket, Build quality is awesome, Zero vibrations, Features is like basic you will get a trip-a&b and odo, Rpm meter and speedometer along with indications like abs, Fuel pump, Battery, Engine oil which is more than enough for the bike.After sale service is good.The service guy actually listen to the problem i faced and fixed the problem which is great.

  • The seats are too comfortable when we go with pillion rider . Front Foot peg position make little uncomfortable. For long drive singles is recommended because pillion rider thighs will get strained of elevated foot peg.
  • Depending on the length of the ride, I was comfortable for a 108 mile ride on the two lane roads around my house. I'm sure I could have done twice that many, but had an appointment.

Q. How much is cost for the second service of Royal Enfield Interceptor 650, and the parts needed to be changed in that service?
  • Hi i have interceptor 650 orange crush and i have done with the 3rd service today and it costs me 2400 INR that includes Engine oil and oil filter. Other things were in good condition. It took only 1.5 hours to complete the service. Note: Second service cost was zero.
  • My vehicle is not due for the second service yet but I would expect to replace my brake pads by that time besides the engine oil and oil filter. Keep aside about Rs 5500 to 6000 for the second service, due at 10K kms.
  • Second service is at 5000 km, and is just a check over, quite cheap. No oil change. Third service at 10,000 is oil change, check tappets etc.

Q. RE Interceptor 650 engine produces heat very much and I could feel it in my thighs from the petrol tank. Is it expected in this model? I am worried whether it's safe to drive when petrol tank gets heat?
  • Changing the stock exhaust would def help reduce heat but make sure the fuel map is correct if the bike is too lean it might overheat. Also if you check the engine oil temp if it is above 170 degrees it would help a lot to use a much larger oil cooler and also use synthetic oil. A motorcycle, set up correctly, shouldn't run hot at idle. If the oil is over 200 degrees using your infrared thermometer then you would def benefit from a larger cooler. Remember manufacturers set up bikes to benefit THEM (ie overheat, lose compression, have to be overhauled, etc) NOT usually to benefit YOU. I had a friend has a BMW 1000cc bike it ran 170 temp stock. My Triumph bonneville was running 230. I changed radiator for one 300% larger and voila! Now my Triumph runs 170 like it should. On your air cooler bike you would change the oil cooler, same difference.
  • Interceptor is a 650 CC twin cylinder motorcycle. It is expected to heat up more that the smaller capacity bikes we are use to.There has never been an incident where fuel has caught fire due to the engine heat. There are production motorcycles with three times the engine capacity, and I have never heard of a risk of fire due to the engine heat.
  • The heat must be from the engine if you have been driving for a significant amount of time below about 30kmph like in heavy city traffic.That is normal as it is a big engine and is of no concern.Hope this helps! Happy riding!
