    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 was planning to take jawa 42. With the arrival of Imperialle, I changed my decision. But definitely with 80k more to the budget, I felt that INT will be the best retro bike to buy. Only concern is, RE service is just the worst. City mileage is 19 to 22kmpl. Highway mileage just surprised me. 33 to 36kmpl. Just wow...

    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.

    Very competitively priced. Power delivery is very linear. The bike comes alive upwards of 4000rpm. Very easy to ride at slow speeds. Handling is spot on. The suspension having been designed by Harrisons performance is phenomenal. Cornering is spot on. The pirrelli phantom sportcomp is very grippy on smooth than roads in dry and wet as well. Not good on loose gravel and ruts. Breaking is very good. It's designed as a retro 70's classic. Hence looks can be subject to perception. 47Bhp and 52 Nm is not very impressive for a 650. but is adequate for Indian roads. Overtaking is a breeze. One doesn't even need to down shift. I have been achieving a fuel economy of around 25kmpl, which is very impressive for a 650. Service and maintenance cost is quite reasonable. The only con I can think of is poor electricals/ electronics. Royal Enfield has cheaped out on it.
