    As for as buying experience my first int 650 was taken delivery on 01.01.2019 with only insurance done. Next day it created abnormal engine noise i told it to the dealer & they contacted the re plant . Engineers examine and said we will allot on other bike. Then in February i got the on other int 650. Interceptor is very good in performance. Good braking. Driving position is good. Standard seat is hard for long drives.Pillion seating is not comfortable because of elevated foot pegs. Heating is little bit in high city driving conditions. Suspension is bouncy making thud noise in little bad & very bad roads . Suspension is very good in highways. Interceptor is definitely not a zero vibration bike. It is creating vibration in foot peg areas , side of the fuel tank & minor development started in handle bar area. Fuel gauge is improper/inaccurate it shows error reading we have to manually check by opening the tank. Engine rpm some times improper in idling glides up & down.Heating in engine is tolerable it bakes our leg. In highways also. Latest happenings in my int 650 i had problem in t-stem i took it to the service center they replaced with , new t-stem , front struts , front rim , abnormal engine noise was prevailing in my int 650 all 8 engine values changed on warranty . Still excessive engine noise is in my bike & bonus whistle sound intolerable. I have again informed the re service. They assured to sort it out. The int 650 is still a beta product . We should go to mediation course to control our patience. But riding pleasure is good. I have crossed 4700 km only.

    I purchased the vehicle a week back after a lot of test rides as the delivery of the bike was delayed by 3 months..I don't regret purchasing this vehicle.This bike has a amazing presence.Commands respect..Has power ontap whenever required..Can idle on city roads with ease .A bit heavy though.Rides a bit hot but is acceptable as riding gear becomes necessary.This bike garners a lot of attention with its retro classic looks and the brand name too adds to its value.Don't mistake this bike for a bullet it is not..No vibrations no lethargy no hesitation..It is the swift and ready to race..It is full of pros .Cons..Only if the rider is underweight and can't spend on riding gear...Other than that..The intercepted 650 in my opinion is the last bike a rider will need to purchase... Then enjoy it value for the rest of the life .

    I bought this bike after awaiting for 2 months, initially I thought it is heavy and difficult to handle but after 1 hour drive I was like ohh god.. it was heaven. I did not check mileage, and coming to the engine it produces so much of heat. waring shoes are must while driving long. I really love this.

    The bike is highly unreliable and a piece of junk from royal enfield just like other bikes from royal enfield . My interceptor suddenly broke down and is not starting in the mid of the road . Rsa technician told it has wiring issues . How come some one cheat customer like this where the bike wont start in the mid of the road and you are help less. I will be selling my bike asap any probably switch to Japanese bikes . This company is shit and will be forever . They only want customers money by selling junk bikes .

    The bike is a really value for money and the ride is smooth as butter and there are no vibrations in the vehicle. Yes there is a little buzz in the top end but we need that much of such a big vehicle. The design is pretty simple and old school. It is a classic bike. Maintenance costs me around 3k. There is only two cons. Emits a lot of heat in traffic and is heavy.

    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.

    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. I used to ride my 500 occasionally, i was using car for going to court for last 8 years but from the day of purchase this bike till date i am using it and i am very happy about it. Now i don't feel like driving my car. This is one of the best bike manufactured by royal enfield india. What i like about interceptor :1. Engine : it is butter smooth, there is hardly any vibration. 2. Performance : all the power is at your disposal at all times. There is no need to push it very hard, it simply cut through the traffic effortlessly. Acceleration is amazing. I have done 140 kmph without any fuss. 3. Looks: i like old bikes but prefer modern technology. This fits my requirements perfectly. 4. Price : nothing come close to it 5. Ride : i like the way it handles considering its weight. I simply love the way it handles. 6. Service : so far i had good experience let's hope to have great experience in future. 7. Sales : normally sales guys are good only at the time of selling their products but i'm glad to say that till date whenever i visit royal enfield dealership in panjim they are as hospitable as they were when i booked my bike. 8. Economy : i get decent 22 kmpl, Things i don't like :1. Weight, when you are parking it. 2. Heating to some extent 3. No tubeless tyres Note: i still love it I am not interested in rewards, if something is good or bad one must make a point to share their experience in order to help others to take right decision.

    Guys after waiting for many months, finally i get the bike(interceptor 650), i ride it for 1 day and the next day the bike has issues with its front rim etc, avinash from the service center makes me wait for hours and then tells me there is a problem and the part needs to be changed and it has been 5 days now and they still say no parts available, none of them are updated with the bike, the store (indiranagar) manager calls me from whitefield telling me he will give me a himalayan for a few days as standby but after i arrive he says there is no bike available. This is the worse after sales experience.. None of them are helpful and aligned with what each one of them says .. Buy the bike but guys at your own risk.. They will push for sales but have 0 service after.. I wish to just ask them to keep the bike for them self and want it no more.. Such a big torture .. Value of buying this bike is dead because of their knowledge and the way they treat you. Terrible experience and i dread what i am going to face with them if i continue to keep the bike.. Horrifying experience.
