    Buying experience with re was highly interactive they treat customers as family and were really informative. From visiting showroom to getting the bike was very smooth and fun.With a plethora of bikes launching every year re has given Indian market an motorcycle to feel the true passion of motorcycling. 650 twin cylinder engine is absolutely refined and produces power when you need it ! riding posture gives the character a true cafe racer deserves. Other than the massive weight of bike which sometimes feels like a hassle to pull out of parking this motorcycle feels like feather when riding.Looks wise this bike deserves 10/10. Huge headlamp, visible engine and aggressive posture gives the retro look all the og motorcyclists crave for. 2 massive exhausts give the hefty look to this beast.Performance is amazing because of the twin cylinders in this machine which provide linear acceleration all the way through. Braking is excellent ! only thing which disappoints is the heavy clutch which leads to palm pain during traffic and sometimes motorcycle goes into false neutral while shifting from 1st to 2nd. Other than this motorcycle is absolutely delight to own.Service experience is good with re. 650 mammoth requires a lot of engine oil so service cost comes north of 1500. Motorcycle is easy to maintain.Pros:Performance - 47 hp at this price point is rare and delivery is on point.Looks - it doesn’t get any more retro than this.Braking - motorcycle has a shear amount of force to stop the moving 200kg beast.Posture - provides you the committed posture cafe racers require. Makes you feel alive.Mods - re has a lot of mods for this bike : single seat to bar end mirrors.Cons:1. Tubeless tyres - spoked wheels result in tubeless tyres so goodluck dragging this 200kg bike if you do get a puncture.2. Clutch feels heavy3. Broad tyres result in heavy handle bar while turning4. Posture too aggressive for some riders which might lead to back and wrist pain after long ridesOverall it doesn’t get better than this at this price point. If you’re looking for a retro motorcycle which can deliver power you want and looks you will fall in love with then surely go for this motorcycle.Re interceptor 650 is also an excellent option if you’re into long rides and touring.

    Pricing is worth it 2 cylinder engine Smoothed shifts best gears till now made by royal enfield. Light clutch A little heavy for me. Maintenance cost is reasonable. Bike has an aggressive look bit sporty. Perfect for mountains. Perfect choice for a low budget bike enthusiast who wants to have multiple bikes. Royal enfield is offering an upgrade option too Better than interceptor 650.

    I have classic 350 gun metal grey., but i want continental for my leh trip.. I think this bike can fulfil my all choices specially fuel tank capacity and no vibration on handle bar. I do want such bike.I personally recommend to all, if there is no budget constraints, go with continental gt 650, that gives enough power to roam around difficult terrain.

    Buying experience was amazing with the siddh bali royal enfield showroom in kotdwar. When i rode the bike very first time, i were little scared but as soon as i got use to with my bike within 3 4 hours, i just loved the ride. Looks and performance is amazing. Yes i did my first service and it charged me 2500 which quite similar to any other bikes now a days. I just loved everything about this bike... Looks, engineering, breaking, pick up, speed, riding...Everything. And dislikes are... Average in the city is too low..... On the mountains it's understandable. And fuel capacity of the tank... And hazard light is not there.... Which is very important specially in India, and as the bike has 2 exhaust, but the sound of the exhaust is too low compared to single exhaust of classic 350.

    To start off this bike was never on my mind to buy. I had always wanted a harley softail and was contemplating buying it but due to a few other commitments had been putting off picking one up. I happened to spot the new re twins at a showroom and test rode the interceptor first and was really impressed. My cousin has the previous continental gt and i have ridden that bike and based on that didnt want to even consider the new gt. But i happened to ask for the gt keys as well and requested to test the bike by myself. Something about the grip and the weight of the bike and the new engine connected to my physically and instantly i knew i loved this bike in a second. I immediately put down a 10k deposit and booked the new gt 650 in a heartbeat. The next 20 days were spent watching every review and comparison available on youtube and instagram. I was lucky to get my bike within 20 days of having booked it. Have ridden it about 250 kms. I usually don't ride due to traffic and pollution concerns and always use my cars. In my opinion this bike is beautiful. The new engine and everything about the bike immediately makes a physical connection with you. It feels like a well fitting leather glove. It is quite heavy and would advice against parking it in an incline or on a slope or in any tight spot. I cant fully explain how much i like the new gt 650 and still am amazed re can make this bike this affordable. The quality is great and this bike is the perfect stepping stone for the new bikers who want a bigger engine. Its an easy bike to learn the discipline of owning a big bike. Learning about the importance of gear and boots will only happen on a large bike.200 kilos though not that heavy but still is quite a bit for our indian traffic and roads. Id suggest every harley street 750 buyer to check this one before buying that. It matches up and then some with every other bike in twice its price range. And well its made in india. As made in india should be. Beautiful bike and love it to a fault. If re launches an 800 or a bigger bike soon who is to say i may never dream of harley again. And i like looking at it a little more than riding it. On speed and specs i guess there are a million reviews out there. I haven't ridden it more than 120 but i think it'll do 160 to 170 with ease and stay on 150 all day. Ill never change the exhausts cause for me the bike needs to feel great more than sound. And i am quite against loud aftermarket exhausts. I don't like attention and prefer being unnoticed and am glad the bike is understated and yet perfectly beautiful. I would however in the near future want to replace my tyres to tubeless cause i cant imagine a flat on this bike. It doesn't heat up that much ... Is pretty stable in dead speed traffic and the riding position is not at all painful as some reviews have called it. A few days in the saddle will season you well. what more can i say. I guess this bike has some soul. Like a well set up guitar.. A well seasoned bat... A true modern day classic.Oh and fuel consumption i've mostly only ridden in dead traffic where i am barely out of 2nd gear and im getting about 20. Think that will be better in normal riding conditions.

    It's a charming mid range cafe racer with stability and higher durability little bit slower to its competitors but is too cool in its price range awesome only of its type in India in mid range of 4 lakhs just under powered for more comfortable engine performance and more appealing of its looks thank you royal enfield to have it but it's needed to be engineered for 350 also to have it in trend appeal.
