About Interceptor 650

Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 is a commuter bike available in 3 variants in india. Its lowest version starts from a price of ₹2,64,919 (ex-showroom) and the top version from a price of ₹2,85,951 (ex-showroom). Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 generates 47 bhp of power and 52 nm of torque from its 648cc engine. Double cylinder engine of Interceptor 650 has a 6 speed manual gearbox. With both rear and front disk brakes, the top variant of Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 also has an anti-locking braking system. This 202 kg bike is available in 6 colours.

The Interceptor is one of the two models based on the 650cc twin cylinder platform from Royal Enfield. It is the more ‘street bike’ of the two, and has the wider appeal with its retro looks and comfort and the capability to carry a pillion rider as well.

The Interceptor has, at its heart, a fuel-injected 648cc parallel twin air/oil cooled motor that generates 47bhp and 52Nm. It feeds the rear wheel via a six-speed gearbox and chain drive. The chassis, brakes and suspension are all modern-feeling, with all the charm that their retro looks offer. The brakes are single discs at both ends, with a 320mm disc at the front, and a 240mm disc at the rear. ABS is standard. The suspension has conventional forks at the front and twin gas-charged shock absorbers at the rear, with preload adjustment. The tyres are technically tubeless but require a tube inside as the spoked 18-inch rims are not airtight.

Instrumentation is also retro, with a twin-pod cluster housing, an analogue speedo and tacho, with a small digital pod offering information about the fuel level, odometer and two trip meters. In a similar vein, the lighting also offers no LEDs at all and no DRLs – a simple round headlamp does the job.

The Interceptor will be available in six different colour schemes, four of which are single colours – black, grey, silver and orange – and two twin-tone paint schemes, red/black and red/silver. A decently long list of accessories will be available for the Interceptor 650.

At Rs 2.5 lakhs onward, ex-showroom, the Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 competes on price with the KTM 390 Duke, although in specs, it is a lot closer to the Kawasaki Z650. Neither of the two is a retro-styled street bike, however.

Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 Expert Opinion

  • Good Things

    • Features a refined engine
    • Offers a comfortable riding position
    • Comes in variety of colour options

BikeWale's Take

The Interceptor 650 has set a new benchmark for Royal Enfield. It is comfortable, has good build quality and a refined engine. While the bike sure is heavy, and the high-speed ride isn't very great, the Interceptor 650 makes it up with its exceptional price tag and retro-appeal.

  •  5Awesome bike 5 days ago by Manjunath Mandrekar, Panjim

    I was using royal enfield classic 500 for almost five years. When i first heard about this bike i was surprised by the positive reviews that this bike was getting, without wasting any time i booked it.It took almost three months to get the delivery but for me this three months were like three years. Delivery process was smooth. My first impression was awesome, bike was looking awesome (ravishing red) when i gently opened the throttle i was surprised by the power delivery, it butter smooth.By the time i was out of the city i was already in love with my new bike, it much much better than my 500.
