Royal Enfield motorcycles have a very cult following in our country. It is the oldest motorcycle manufacturer in the world and is quite popular around the world. They are known for their retro looking modern motorcycles. Couple of years ago, Royal Enfield launched their twin cylinder motorcycles in the market. Just like other Royal Enfield models, Interceptor 650 and Continental GT 650 also gained popularity among motorcyclists in a very short span of time. Some of them have even modified these motorcycles to their preference and here we have another modified Interceptor 650 that looks mean.
The modifications have been done by Eimor Customs. They are a well known name among motorcyclists and are based from Hyderabad. They have have worked on several projects based on Royal Enfield motorcycles in the past. This modification based on the Interceptor 650 is the latest one to roll out from their stable. According to Eimor Customs, the whole aim with this project was to make Interceptor 650 a lot more stealthier and sleeker. They have even named the bike and is known as ‘DCPTR’.
They have done several changes to the motorcycle to achieve this. Starting with the front, the bulky looking stock headlamp unit has been replaced with a sleeker aftermarket unit. Similarly, the turn indicators have also been replaced with an LED aftermarket unit. The front fork remains the same but, the standard spoke wheels have been painted in matte black finish. The wheels are wrapped around chunky looking bobber tyres. This has made a huge difference in the overall looks and stance of the bike.
The whole motorcycle carries an all-black theme with silver accents at places. The tank bears laser cut aluminum decals which looks extremely good on the bike. The instrument cluster on the Interceptor 650 has also been replaced with single pod digital meter that has been set at an offset. The whole engine arear has been painted in black. The side panels have also been customised and gets silver accents and a vented aluminium plate. It also gets a custom exhaust that has been blacked out.
Moving to the rear, the seat frame has been chopped slightly and the seat gets a custom upholstery. Moving to the rear, Interceptor gets a custom made rear fender. This also elevates the overall look of the bike. This also gets an aftermarket LED tail lamp that gets a smoked effect. Eimor has also installed a grab rail for the rear passenger. Apart from that everything else in the motorcycle remains the same as before.
It looks like no changes have been made to the engine of the motorcycle. It is currently one of the most affordable twin cylinder motorcycle available in the market. It is powered by a 648-cc, parallel twin cylinder engine that generates a maximum of 47 Bhp and 52 Nm of torque. Royal Enfield is working on a number of new models for the Indian market and one of them is a 650-cc, twin cylinder cruiser motorcycle. Other than that, the Interceptor and Continental GT 650 would be soon getting a feature update. It would be getting a revised ripper meter which RE recently introduced in Meteor 350.
