The bike riding experience was good but the maintenance was more and mileage is also not as effective as the company assured the bike should be reviewed by the company and made the bike as efficient to use and should the spare parts of the bike should be available everywhere in every showroom because it was high
End bike from royal Enfield so looks into it.

    1. The buying experience has been smooth.
    2. Best bike with a very smooth engine, the bike stays relaxed till 130 KMPH.
    3. Retro Classic Modern look blends very well with the bike.
    4. Maintenance cost is on the higher side due to break shoe price.
    5. Pros: The relaxed parallel twin engine does not scream like singles. The nimble, agile.
    Cons: I did not find any. The foot peg position was annoying in traffic gotten used to the springy action now.

    Tips for other riders

    Stop unnecessary breaking in the city instead, use declaration while hopping from 1 traffic signal to another. That way you can prevent the wear and tear of break shoes.

  • Quality issue

    17 weeks ago


    Manjunath Reddy

    Worst quality. chassis broke within 6 months.
    service center guys refuse to replace the chassis as it has a saddle. how come a touring bike can go for rides without a saddle?
    And the company doesn’t have that.
    Next comes the battery issues.
    The battery is not getting charged.
    Replaced with a new one and the very next day it was dead again.
    Hats off to RE service
    They even don’t know what the problem is.

  • Excellent Bike

    23 weeks ago


    Prashant Kumar Madhup

    Excellent Experience during riding, feel King when on the road. Value for Money and Royal Enfield's name is enough. Nothing to say. When I purchased the bike I thought it was a very heavy bike but after riding it felt smooth on the road and had no vibration like a 650 cc bike. It's design is Good.

    My age is 70 years and it's not possible to ride anymore. The service cost is very low, the style is excellent, it/s a genuine superbike for the younger generation. The bike is an eye-catcher and the rider is noticed wherever you take it. I still love it but because of my age, I have sold it. But bear in mind, it's not a 'distress sale.

  • 2 merits to buy and 2 demerits to think for buying or not

    1 year ago


    Ravi

    I got a chance to ride this bike for 200-300 km. I have covered a distance of approx. 250km from rajkot to ahmedabad. Then I have also ridden the bike on rough roads and kachha road.
    ->riding experience:
    if I talk about the riding experience, I was very confident to ride 650cc bike after riding this. It offers to good control over the bike. The control system is awesome. It covers the acceleration of 0-80 km in just 5-6 sec max. The pickup of this bike is amazing and the braking system is awesome. The is not much vibration in the bike. The engine is very refined. The exhaust sound is quite amazing.
    Mileage:
    I have also tested the mileage of the interceptor650, it gives the max mileage of about 28kmpl at highway and 24-26 kmpl in the city.
    Service:
    As there is no cover for the chain, regular cleaning is required.
    Cons:
    1. The seat is quite narrow, so it is not very comfortable for long rides.
    2. The rear footrest is a little bit higher than the rider's footrest, so for taller people, it is uncomfortable to sit.

    1. Dealers were good enough to clear every query we had and also finance was of attractive interest.
    2. Excellent for long rides, as a city commuter it does well. Except for the long-time seating.
    3. Retro look just attracted me and the performance is great there is no way to worry about speeding.
    4. In the segment of 600+cc interceptor has quite affordable maintenance. General servicing is for 5k kms after the first service which will cost around 2.5k ₹
    5. Pros: great tourer, attractive looks, easily understandable instrument cluster.
    Cons: seat is not good for long rides, and weight will be a burden when moving the vehicle.

    Scan the bike by the time of delivery and if required complain to customer care and get parts replaced no matter how big or small is the issue. Do not over speed until the gear teeth/piston are set properly. Use single-handled till the first service. Get the best crash guard, sump guard, and radiator guard. Clean the chain after each ride and regularly during rainy and apply lubricant.

  • Built like a gun built for man!

    It has amazing power, looks good, feels manly, comfortable to ride. I wanted to take the next big step in life after getting a job, so I recently bought my interceptor, and it is the first bike I own. I love its power, its high acceleration is quite useful, especially in the city and in traffic. The sound and feeling of riding it is amazing and make you feel manly af haha. Moreover, the number of things you can change is also nice, though some re-showrooms may not be ready to do it ( i was able to install original bar end mirrors through a different re-service center after the showroom refused to install it). I will update this review soon after i have ridden my interceptor a little more.

    This is the first bike that I have bought. It is fun to ride my interceptor 650, for multiple reasons. The performance is amazing, the ride quality is comfortable. I don't see many mentioning this, but the sound, the looks, and everything about this bike gives you a masculine feel and boosts your confidence by a ton haha. I will update this review periodically as I ride my interceptor more.

    Amazing Machine, been using it for around 3 years here's my opinion
    But the part where this machine shines is your first riding experience. The engine will make you fall for it, it loves everything
    Looks good, but rust is an issue at some parts where quality lacks
    Performance is something you will not be disappointed. Still, if you are, then can experiment with a ton of customization options including an S and S 865 cc big bore kit.
    I personally have installed the NGK spark plug with wiring kit , Ohlins front suspension kit and RK Takasago brass chains
    PROS
    -Punchy engine
    -Ton of customization options available in the market for the geeks
    -Good for highway touring with some mods
    CONS
    -First and foremost -The front suspensions
    -Limited tyre selection R18s
    -No tubeless, Removing tyres is a real headache
    -Wobbling needs time-to-time correction, till you change the rims
    -Defective Fuel meter
    To the reader who is thinking to buy it and is looking everywhere on the internet for Int650 info, Go for it, buddy.I was one of them and I do not regret my decision of buying.

    Stop unnecessary breaking in the city instead, use declaration while hopping from 1 traffic signal to another. That way you can prevent the wear and tear of break shoes.

  • Quality issue

    17 weeks ago


    Manjunath Reddy

    Worst quality. chassis broke within 6 months.
    service center guys refuse to replace the chassis as it has a saddle. how come a touring bike can go for rides without a saddle?
    And the company doesn’t have that.
    Next comes the battery issues.
    The battery is not getting charged.
    Replaced with a new one and the very next day it was dead again.
    Hats off to RE service
    They even don’t know what the problem is.

  • Excellent Bike

    Prashant Kumar Madhup

    Excellent Experience during riding, feel King when on the road. Value for Money and Royal Enfield's name is enough. Nothing to say. When I purchased the bike I thought it was a very heavy bike but after riding it felt smooth on the road and had no vibration like a 650 cc bike. It's design is Good.

    My age is 70 years and it's not possible to ride anymore. The service cost is very low, the style is excellent, it/s a genuine superbike for the younger generation. The bike is an eye-catcher and the rider is noticed wherever you take it. I still love it but because of my age, I have sold it. But bear in mind, it's not a 'distress sale.

  • 2 merits to buy and 2 demerits to think for buying or not

    1 year ago


    Ravi

    I got a chance to ride this bike for 200-300 km. I have covered a distance of approx. 250km from rajkot to ahmedabad. Then I have also ridden the bike on rough roads and kachha road.
    ->riding experience:
    if I talk about the riding experience, I was very confident to ride 650cc bike after riding this. It offers to good control over the bike. The control system is awesome. It covers the acceleration of 0-80 km in just 5-6 sec max. The pickup of this bike is amazing and the braking system is awesome. The is not much vibration in the bike. The engine is very refined. The exhaust sound is quite amazing.
    Mileage:
    I have also tested the mileage of the interceptor650, it gives the max mileage of about 28kmpl at highway and 24-26 kmpl in the city.
    Service:
    As there is no cover for the chain, regular cleaning is required.
    Cons:
    1. The seat is quite narrow, so it is not very comfortable for long rides.
    2. The rear footrest is a little bit higher than the rider's footrest, so for taller people, it is uncomfortable to sit.

    1. Dealers were good enough to clear every query we had and also finance was of attractive interest.
    2. Excellent for long rides, as a city commuter it does well. Except for the long-time seating.
    3. Retro look just attracted me and the performance is great there is no way to worry about speeding.
    4. In the segment of 600+cc interceptor has quite affordable maintenance. General servicing is for 5k kms after the first service which will cost around 2.5k ₹
    5. Pros: great tourer, attractive looks, easily understandable instrument cluster.
    Cons: seat is not good for long rides, and weight will be a burden when moving the vehicle.

    Scan the bike by the time of delivery and if required complain to customer care and get parts replaced no matter how big or small is the issue. Do not over speed until the gear teeth/piston are set properly. Use single-handled till the first service. Get the best crash guard, sump guard, and radiator guard. Clean the chain after each ride and regularly during rainy and apply lubricant.

    It has amazing power, looks good, feels manly, comfortable to ride. I wanted to take the next big step in life after getting a job, so I recently bought my interceptor, and it is the first bike I own. I love its power, its high acceleration is quite useful, especially in the city and in traffic. The sound and feeling of riding it is amazing and make you feel manly af haha. Moreover, the number of things you can change is also nice, though some re-showrooms may not be ready to do it ( i was able to install original bar end mirrors through a different re-service center after the showroom refused to install it). I will update this review soon after i have ridden my interceptor a little more.

    This is the first bike that I have bought. It is fun to ride my interceptor 650, for multiple reasons. The performance is amazing, the ride quality is comfortable. I don't see many mentioning this, but the sound, the looks, and everything about this bike gives you a masculine feel and boosts your confidence by a ton haha. I will update this review periodically as I ride my interceptor more.

    Dr Emad

    Amazing Machine, been using it for around 3 years here's my opinion
    But the part where this machine shines is your first riding experience. The engine will make you fall for it, it loves everything
    Looks good, but rust is an issue at some parts where quality lacks
    Performance is something you will not be disappointed. Still, if you are, then can experiment with a ton of customization options including an S and S 865 cc big bore kit.
    I personally have installed the NGK spark plug with wiring kit , Ohlins front suspension kit and RK Takasago brass chains
    PROS
    -Punchy engine
    -Ton of customization options available in the market for the geeks
    -Good for highway touring with some mods
    CONS
    -First and foremost -The front suspensions
    -Limited tyre selection R18s
    -No tubeless, Removing tyres is a real headache
    -Wobbling needs time-to-time correction, till you change the rims
    -Defective Fuel meter
    To the reader who is thinking to buy it and is looking everywhere on the internet for Int650 info, Go for it, buddy.I was one of them and I do not regret my decision of buying.

  • Relaxed Twins will let you sail in triple digits with ease.

    15 weeks ago


    Prakhyat Nayak

    1. The buying experience has been smooth.
    2. Best bike with a very smooth engine, the bike stays relaxed till 130 KMPH.
    3. Retro Classic Modern look blends very well with the bike.
    4. Maintenance cost is on the higher side due to break shoe price.
    5. Pros: The relaxed parallel twin engine does not scream like singles. The nimble, agile.
    Cons: I did not find any. The foot peg position was annoying in traffic gotten used to the springy action now.
