Modifications and accessories for the Royal Enfield Interceptor have started pouring in now. Now there are various modified examples of the bike along with aftermarket accessories to make your stylish new Interceptor rock. There was a lack of customised aftermarket parts for both the 650 twins initially but that time is over now. The Interceptor 650 you see below has been given a scrambler treatment, although it’s a milder mod job so as to suit everyone’s taste. the bike has received some kit add-ons apart from other changes about we will discuss in more details below.
This custom Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 has been made by BIG BEAR Motorcycle Gear & Accessories. The first major change to be noticed are the knobby off road spec tires both on the front and the rear. Then there is an additional beak fender added on the bike. A custom crash guard has been equipped on the bike to protect it from sustaining heavy damage in case of a fall. The stock headlamps have been replaced with an aftermarket unit.
Another major change here is the increased front fork travel. This has been done so that the bike can have a better ground clearance as well as perform better over bad patches of the surface. However, these mods and fitments wouldn’t probably look and function well on the Continental GT 650, because transforming it into a scrambler would take more work as it’s already a cafe racer inspired design bike.
Moving on, the bike has been fitted with a new shorter saddle that gets more cushioning. The original paint of the bike has given way to custom shades of silver, cyan and black. Overall, the Scrambler makeover it (Interceptor 650) has been given looks nice without being too loud, as is the norm with regular scrambler themed modifications. With all these mods on it, the Scrambler here looks ready to take on the rough terrain without any hiccup. It is already quite a powerful bike and can easily take a heavy beating without much complaint.
Speaking of which, the Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 is powered by a 647 cc, twin cylinder, air-oil cooled engine that churns out a good 47 Bhp of power along with 52 Nm of torque. the engine comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox along with a slipper clutch. It is the most powerful and advanced bike from the company yet and its double cradle chassis has been designed with inputs from Harris Performance, UK. The pricing for the Interceptor 650 starts at Rs. 2.50 lakhs and it’s the most powerful bike in this price range. Moreover, there is no direct rival of the 650 twins in the price range and they are in a league of their own.
