    Classic retro look and performance and pickup is like time traveling. Vroom it’s been 1 year I am riding this machine. I took it for touring as well Almost covered 9k km on this. Words are not enough to explain. No other Indian made bike can cross you and it’s a beast with no experience.

    1,2. Royal Enfield has done good job in shaping the bike and servicing. it will provide an uncommon riding experience. this is my first ever Motorcycle. I use it for daily commute, tours, traveling and weekend rides. I'm 163cm 65kg and little freak about speed. I ride the bike flawlessly it will always amaze me. All you need is better Practice and good Skills.
    3. Cool retro looks. Smooth engine and very good pickup.
    it will not hardly push till 170-180kmph, but it can keep you stay in 140-160kmph without any stress. Best sounding with Parellal twin. I have installed myself an aftermarket exhaust, sounds amazing.
    4. Like any other motorcycle, this also need maintenance. rather than your money it needs your care. checking chain, brakes, clutch and reaching service center whenever you find a glitch. these days you can learn all the servicing tips from the internet if you are interested. that's all it needs.
    5. It's heavy but maneuverable.
    hard to take back from parking, but thrills to pull the throttle (Bruiimmm...).
    It heats a lot in traffic.
    overall this bike is not best for something, but whatever your job - it does cleverly.

    This bike provides a very comfort riding on the long route journeys. The engine although gets heated after sometime, but it doesn't affect much to the rider. Before a trip a service is advised although, to ensure a safe and secure journey. Service is not usually required much. The riding comfort on trips will make you feel awesome.

    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.

    Firstly it's Royal Enfield's first ever made cafe racer bike. I loved it by the looks and awesome styling, as there is more options for this cafe racer bikes, they don't have such great road presence, but well created. They are over priced according to Indian roads and rules. Only one thing i missed from interceptor 650 is led head lights and tail light. But interceptor will make another benchmark in Indian market for sure.

    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.

    Good powerful bike with great macho look. Replica of triumph street twin, but smooth and nimble. Gear changes is frequent as you can travel 40km/h in 3rd gear Cons- mileage 20km in city, heavy 210 kg with fuel. Stock ceat tyre's are tube type ( not tubeless like earlier firelli) so alloy wheel upgrade is more expensive. Seat is very narrow. You need 25000 rupees more to make it a better' bike.

I’m going to start this report with a confession. I was never a fan of Royal Enfield. I didn’t hate the brand. I just didn’t appreciate them selling Indians the same old heavy modern-retro motorcycles at a price tag where the profit margins are fat. But things changed when...
