New 2018 Royal Enfield Interceptor INT 650 Design and Styling

With its classic tear-drop shaped fuel-tank, quilted twin-seat and distinctive wide braced handlebars, the Interceptor INT 650 looks every bit the stunning Roadster that it is. The motorcycle is built around the all-new, dedicated steel-tube cradle chassis. The chassis has been developed from the ground up by the team at Royal Enfield’s UK Technology Centre, and Harris Performance.

The wide-braced handlebars are claimed to offer comfortable ergonomics and a confident and commanding riding position. The motorcycle is equipped with classic 18” front and rear Pirelli tyres and twin shock absorbers, along with front and rear disc brakes with ABS. Ground clearance is rated at 174mm while the saddle is 804 mm tall. The Interceptor INT 650 will be available three colour options – Orange Crush, Ravishing Red and Silver Spectre and two distinct styles – Standard and Retro Custom. While the Standard range of colourways take inspiration from the motorcycles of the 50’s and 60’s, the Retro Custom range is a bolder version of graphics and colours.
