I’ve only fallen in love with one Royal Enfield motorcycle. That was the
BS4 Himalayan. When RE launched the Royal Enfield 650 Twins, I thought to
myself that it was just some 650, retro-styled motorcycle which makes decent
power. Nothing extraordinary, I assumed.
It wasn’t until I rode the Interceptor 650 few months post its launch
that I understood and registered in my head what the hype was all about. And
then, Royal Enfield agreed to lend us the BS6 Interceptor 650 for a lo
test! It’s a sweet machine. It’s tractable, fun, has a humble outlook and is
agile. Yes, it’s extremely flickable and capable of putting a wide grin on your
face while you challenge your super sport folks. The 650cc parallel twin motor
makes 47bhp and 52Nm put down via a 6-speed gearbox. What I love most is the
seat height of 804mm and the fact that even though it weighs 8kg more than my
Himalayan, it feels impeccably well balanced.
We’ve just got it, and we’re already putting it through hell. It’s been
so far, so good with our long termer. Although a small early request to Royal
Enfield – Can we have a guide to read the Fuel Gauge...please?
