The Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 is a very likeable motorcycle. It is good looking; the quality on the bike is the best we have seen on any RE yet; it has a lovely engine; and it stops at will. But, it isn’t perfect.
I am not too happy with the tyres. I wasn’t a fan of the seating ergos either till I changed that. And though the suspension on the Interceptor 650 works fine if you are pottering around and commuting, it’s not the happiest taking on something severe. Plus, there’s unnecessary noise that emanates from the INT’s suspension, which makes them seem loose somehow. It’s not a nice noise at all.
But the good news is – if you are willing to spend a decent amount of money – you can get yourself a fancy aftermarket set. As of now, or at least in our knowledge, there are two options out there for the Interceptor in India. There’s the golden boy Ohlins (ones we couldn’t connect with even after repeated attempts), and then there’s YSS, straight out of Thailand.
In India though, these are distributed by Indimotard Adventures. You can find them on Google, Instagram and if you are in Bangalore, they are housed under the Greasehouse banner.
