THE BRAND NEW ROYAL ENFIELD INTERCEPTOR 650

THE BRAND NEW ROYAL ENFIELD INTERCEPTOR 650

Zip up. Ease in. Ride long.

The Story

Inspired by the iconic 60’s Interceptor with its greatest following in the American west coast, fitting perfectly into the easy-going, fun narrative of the time, the new Interceptor 650 Twin reimagines the sun-drenched California beach lifestyle. This modern classic is the essence of a British roadster with a dash of a California Desert Racer blending timeless style and contemporary performance.


Easy come, easy go

The frame, developed in conjunction with the legendary Harris Performance, thoroughly tested for durability, offers superior balance and handling. Together with the finely tuned suspension with ‘piggy-back’ gas-charged twin shocks for optimum blend of comfort & feel, the chassis ensures the Interceptor 650 is dynamic & responsive, nimble in the city, planted on the highways & agile on the twisties.


At the Heart of it all

An air/oil-cooled parallel twin configuration chosen for its authentic uncluttered lines, the 648 cc engine is built for real world riding, with sufficient power to make light work of city traffic or cruise effortlessly on the open road. A twin throttle-body paired to a highly precise Bosch fuel injection system and EMS tune results in excellent throttle response throughout the rev range.


Smooth operator

Classic aesthetics of 18” alloy-rimmed wheels are shod with Pirelli Phantom SportComp tyres the structure and the compound of which were especially developed for Royal Enfield to complement the chassis and suspension in all riding conditions. The combination of twin-piston Brembo derived callipers on floating front disc and Bosch dual-channel ABS provide assured braking with progressive feedback.


Easy like Sunday Morning

With its wide braced handlebars, the Interceptor has a comfortable upright commanding riding position. The ergonomic triangle, formed by the handlebar, low seat and footpeg position, is set up for comfort with a gentle sports bias helping the rider make the most of the agile chassis and feel intuitively connected with the machine.


Old-school new

Whilst the beautifully sculpted lines of the gleaming, hand-polished aluminum engine covers hark back to a golden era of motorcycling, what really makes heads turn is the deep evocative exhaust note - metering either a steady heady beat, a wonderful over-run burble or a power-on rumble that will move your soul.


Devil is in the details

For the first time Royal Enfield uses a six-speed gearbox, specially developed for the 650 Twin, thoroughly tested on proving grounds, race tracks and public roads, with carefully selected gear ratios chosen to deliver the best blend for all riding conditions. The result is evident in the optimum shift feel, reliability of engagement, quiet notch-free selection and perfect ratio spacing. The gearbox is augmented by a slipper clutch which has an assist feature for light lever feel.
