My Royal Enfield Interceptor 650: Observations after clocking 13000 km

The engine is still the highlight of the whole package with good reliability and a fitting sound track to boot.

Update after a rather long hiatus!

I have covered a little more than 13k km with my Interceptor and I am really happy with the motorcycle that Royal Enfield has crafted. The engine is still the highlight of the whole package with good reliability and a fitting sound track to boot.

My Interceptor is still running without any major accessories or mods. A powerage slip-on exhaust, tubeless tire conversion and a small vinyl job is all that is different from other Baker express Interceptors! Still on stock tyres, no brake pads have been replaced yet, only the lock-set along with keys were changed under warranty due to the fuel cap sealant rubber failing. Why that tiny piece of rubber is not a child-part is beyond me.

I have learnt to live with the stock seat and though I have ideas to improve it, there has not been a pressing need to change them, it is still manageable for even my inter-city rides.

I honestly do not calculate the mileage very accurately, but right estimate is 22 kmpl in the City and 26-28 kmpl on the highway is what I should be getting.

Got my bike serviced this week, and paid INR 5210 – as I had to change the accelerator cable which was faulty. They also replaced the clutch cable as they said it was hard to operate – but I honestly find it to be harder now that it was before the replacement.
