Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 Specifications & Features
The Interceptor has, at its heart, a BS6-compliant, fuel-injected 648cc parallel twin air/oil cooled motor that generates 46.8bhp 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 tachometer, 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.
