    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.

    Got this bike after 3 months of waiting. And worth the wait!! Incredible experience.
    I use it daily, for 1300 kms a month, and never had a trouble.
    Riding experience is top class, overtaking has never been so easy/effortless. Proper looks of a retro roadster. Guys with a KTM taste buds will be foolish to buy this.
    Quality of the parts is top notch, you can check all over and won't find any cheap finish. Since this is a Global product, RE has left no stone unturned.
    Servicing is 2.5K per service, with 1.8K for Engine oil(uses 3.5L to keep itself cool). Gives me about 25 km/l(Range 22/29 in city/highway).
    Zero vibration, clean acceleration, a king on the road, great handling.
    Yet to find anything negative.

    I got the interceptor 650 bakers express as my 21st birthday gift from my parents. I have clocked 600+km on my bike and i have to say that this bike truly has two characters. You can ride it in a calm and sedate manner somewhere around 3000 rpm and it cruises through gracefully. When you rev it hard, it behaves totally differently and will definitely put a smile on your face. I have been getting around 16-25 km/l depending on the way i ride and it is really good for a 650cc, 210 kg bike.The looks of the bike are proper retro. You could take this bike into the 80's and other than the exceptional fit and finish, the bike would just blend it. It is beautiful to look at. All the curves paired with the round headlamp and the rectangular side indicators and the 18" spoke rims really do give it an unique charm. The brakes on the 650 are just phenomenal. I saw in a couple of reviews where it posed shorter braking distance than even the ktm duke 390 and kawasaki ninja 300 and i can confirm it is true. The brakes are extremely precise and the abs does what it's supposed to. You can come comfortably to a halt from speeds upto 160 km/h within a few seconds.Another great aspect of the bike is the handling. For a bike that weighs over 200 kg and is also quite long the bike is very agile. You can maneuver it in the city without feeling like you will fall. The shifts are extremely precise and except from a couple of occasional false neutrals due to my own action of not moving the gear lever the entire way i have no issues with the clutch or the gearbox.The downsides of the bike have to be the lack of instrumentation information , fogging in the instrumentation and the unbelievably stupid placement of the foot pegs.

    I waited for 4.5 months before laying my hands on the INT 650, decent service and buying experience
    The bike is for the feelers ,the classics and the who want a balance of show and go..excellent response from engine and clutch...clutch feels a tad bit heavy tho...looks an absolute charm...with the baker express paint scheme.easily hits cruising speeds...
    RE have tried to keep it simple and have succeeded..not many techie bits ,tho a gear indicator would've been nice..decent beginner bike .
    one you would cherish for years and will want to pass it down to your children.

    Best bike in 650 cc range and easy emi options available. Secondly, it is not that costly compared to all other 600s. Riding experience is not less than a harley street 750 just the difference of cruising. Looks certainly aren't that attractive but is made bold in its own style. In case of vibration, 0 vibrations, much unlike re. Very less maintenance compared to other beasts in range as well as best performance after each servicing. Goes up to 160 kmph single seat.Mileage of 30 kmpl on highways with 650 is very much rare and that's what re is known for.Many pros and very less cons. Just the look and seating is a case of compromise but you get much greater features compared to cons.

    It was love at first sight... The moment i got on the saddle and when i turned it on the rumble was pure eargasm I felt the roar of a pure muscle machine. So i instantly booked the bike and bought it on my wife's name as i owned a car on my name.It became my daily commute to work My weekend breakfast ride Short trails and off road paths It never felt short on anything....The torque seemed endless... Could enjoy the wheel spins on roads with gravel or sand just with the slight twist of the throttle. In my opinion it has got the best brakes in the market thanks to the brembo brake pads which offer excellent stopping power. The pirelli tyres offer excellent road grip. Mileage is very good considering the capacity and the twin engines. Top speed i could achieve was 165 on speedo. Best mileage i could extract was 28 on highway with cruising speeds of 120 kmph mostly. The cheapest and most vfm high performance bike in the market If you are planning your first superbike then look no further this is the best choice.

Engine character is like if you it to be a beast it's ready on a tap or if you want it to be gentle. It's great motorcycle for leisure motorcycling... It's so satisfying to ride this. Servicing no issue... Cost is justifiable in premium bike standard.
