Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 Long Term Report: October 2019

By Ravi Ved | on October 28, 2019

That being said, I managed to get some good saddle time in the city. 

It is that time of the year when some of the roads in Mumbai can easily give the moon’s surface a run for its money. Given the soft suspension of the Interceptor, it rides over these roads in good comfort – especially at city speeds. Another highlight for me has been the heat management. Considering that the Interceptor is air-cooled, I expected it to heat up while riding in traffic, but I am happy to report that it's a lot less than I expected. Of course, you can feel the heat when you stop at a traffic light, but it's manageable. 

Tipping the scales at 202kg (without fuel), the Interceptor 650 is a heavy motorcycle. This weight does not go unnoticed, especially in the city and while parking. Another aspect where there’s a huge scope for improvement is the instrument cluster. The semi-digital unit not only shows limited information but also looks rather primitive. 

So far, I haven’t been able to take the Interceptor out for a long ride. But, the rains are over now, so i think its time.

Mileage this month: 352kms
