Hello Dear Friends,


Today I am going to share my personal experience regarding the " Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 ".It a very high price bike with a very low level of performance. It has got 650cc engine but it is only single cylinder. Engine type is four stroke, For a 650cc bike a 4 stroke engine is very bad which makes it very slow in pick up. The cooling type is Air-Oil cooler which is very old technology and which makes the engine over heat very quickly, So this bike is not suitable for long travelling. The instant pick up is very poor ans it has got only 47 bhp @ 7100 rpm and torque is 52 Nm @4000 rpm. The gear box is 6 speed and ratio is 9:5:1 which makes this bike very large as the gear box size is huge. According to bike technology a 650cc should have a 7 to 8 speed gear box and min of 80 bhp, But this bike lacks it all. The mileage is very low around 12 kmpl. The mileage is lower then SUV. So its a costly bike to buy and the fuel talk in also very small only 5 liters, which you need to refill very often.


The Weight s this bike is 350 kgs, which makes it very difficult to handle, It comes with only two colors orange and red, so not much options is there for a buyer. Styling is so so as it has only spoke wheel, no option for alloy. At the price of 3, 55, 000 rupees the comfort level is very low, the cockpit is very high and the seat quality is very poor, the leather quality is not up to the mark. if two big size of people seat then they will face problem. The head lamp quality is not good for long range viewing, for and rain cutter lights are not available. So you need to purchase for your own for your safety. The top speed is around 110 kmph. Road grip is not very good as this bike is very heavy and hard to control at the corners. The fuel economy is high this bike is less reliable. Does not have good look and style appeal. Very old looking classic style bike. Quality of the handle is not good and the plastic its made of is very poor in quality.


Tyres are old not tubeless so the chance of puncher s always there. It has got 100/90 - 18 front tyre and 100/70 - 18 rear tyre, with Disk break at front and drum break at rear, this makes the bike less reliable, because their should be a rear disk break option for safety. The ABS option is optional so you should buy the ABS for high safety. Ground clearance is only 174mm. Seat hight is 875mm, and it can take 200 kgs maximum weight. So at the price of 3, 55, 000 rupees it is very less performing bike, The sound is very high. Engine is very noisy and the look is very old. All over I will choose to buy a better looking high performing fuel economical bike at this price. You should think twice before buying this bike.


Thanking You,
