    I have owned the bike for around a year now and hence am in a fairly good position to review the bike. The ownership experience has been satisfactory. This boils down to the largely trouble free nature of the machine. It is well engineered and well put together. The reliability has been stellar and have not faced any glitches except for a fogging instrument console. I raised it with HSR Services (authorized dealer for RE) and their team got it replaced in a day. No questions asked. Overall the positives of the bike would include a creamy smooth twin cylinder motor with oodles of torque everywhere. Its an under stressed motor and hence doesn't produce mind boggling power but runs cool and calm. The fantastic chassis and stability at high speed are also noteworthy. Brakes are powerful although they lack feel and feedback at the levers. The cost of servicing has been low, roughly around 3k and the quality of service has been good too. Coming to the negatives, I believe the suspension is of the budget category with not enough rebound damping and they bottom out very soon. The headlight throw could have been better as well although the spread is good. The tank range isn't too much (approx. 200-230kms) and that could have been larger. The Pirelli tyres have excellent grip on dry roads and okayish on wet roads. The fuel efficiency roughly ranges between 20-28km/l which I think is not bad considering the size of the motor. Overall I feel this is the best offering in the 3 lakh rupees category. Highly recommended.

    If i could say the best machines ever built by royal enfield would be the interceptor or the continental. I had a short ride on the interceptor riding comfort is perfect but the rear seats foot rest is partially higher and its a discomfort for a long ride to be true.The engine is powerful and competes with the duke 390 bmw 310 the rr 310.

    This bike literally has no competition, right now and most probably for a long time to come. The nearest parallels twin is the ninja 300 @50k more and it makes way less power and torque compared to this the engine on this machine is a gem, unlike any other royal enfield i have ridden , there is absolutely no vibrations up until the redline. There is plenty of torque on offer and always you are riding this torque wave making city cruising effortless. A weight of 200kg seems to disappear once you get on the move.An average mileage of 25 kmpl seem adequate considering the power and torque figures. The suspension is on the softer side at the back and a bit firm up front. This bad boy can cruise all day at 120kmph and reach 165 kmph easily.The bike offers dual channel abs as standard, the brakes offer good feedback and bite almost matching the g310r. The build quality on this machine is excellent in another class of all the enfield out there. I can't comment on the pricing , it just insane value for money. Maybe a usd for at front ,some tubeless tires, brakes with better bite would have been nice ,but at this price whose complaining. The lack of proper instrumentation like gear position indicator, trip meter etc seems to be a let down. Overall this is winner right from the start.

    Interceptor is an amazing motorbike. I have been owning this bike for 6 months and these are the pros and cons 1- it is the most reliable bike from enfield 2- touring, no problem. Offroad, you should have the skill and definitely need a muscle because it is 202 kg wet. Not that much perfect for bumper traffic. But if you have the guts. You can pull it out 3- false neutrals are common. But sometime it disappears.4- it is well comfort for the rider and the pillion5- have a good range about 300 km and 24-26 mileage is pakka 6- ride quality is the best. Even haters will love the way the bike react.

    Buying it is easy with less waiting time and better people in hand to deal with because it's re (royal enfield).Riding experience is above average and has a lot of merits over demerits, although it is best for a single person ride. You might think that the looks are just okyish in photographs but when you get it in hand and watch it over naked eyes, it looks just as fabulous a machine it could be. Performance with respect to Indian conditions is the best. As its the flagship machine of re, they keenly look into all the issues and to be frank are a bit partial to interceptor customers. Maintenance is easy but costly if you get hit.Pros:Awesome power delivery (for its engine capacity)Great torque till 3rd gear Amazing speed on 5th gear Acceleration is ironically huge. The least price for this engine capacity Good maneuverability Better stability Less vibration on bumps Good tyres Nice riding feel Cons:Limited info console. Worst pillion comfort No use of an inclined silencer. The seating position is hard for >400kms ride. Very bad comfort for the rider. Some minor issues in the design of built-in vehicle auxiliaries Poor headlamp. No full gear pedal Huge weight Vibrations felt hugely on hands (can't ride more than 200kms without leather gloves).

    I love this bike when i ridden it for the first time.It feels like riding a horse sort of something....I had booked this bike and eagerly waiting for its arrival. but the maintenance of this bike is not satisfied by other customers who had bought the bike. but if they could improve on some problems like this sort of thing.
