Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 is a hit in the whole world. It offers tremendous value for money and performance. It is also the most affordable parallel-twin engine that you can get in the Indian market. The chassis has been designed by the famous Harris Performance. It is also one of the most easily modified motorcycles that you can get. Here, is an Interceptor 650 that has been modified quite a bit and it does look really good.
The modifications have been done by soldoutmotorcycles and the pictures have been uploaded on their Instagram page. The modified Interceptor 650 is running a lot of custom parts. The changes that have been made to the motorcycle are cosmetic as well as mechanical.
The fuel tank has been repainted in silver and hue green. A Royal Enfield badge has been painted green over the silver portion of the tank. The side panel is also new with three grilles to help the engine breathe better. An after-market set of exhaust pipes has been installed which are much slimmer and shorter than the stock exhausts. This help in reducing the visual bulk of the motorcycle.
The engine has also been coated with silver paint. From the factory, the engine has chrome. There is also a sump guard installed below the engine to protect the engine from rocks and big potholes. The rims are smaller than the stock ones and they have been blacked out. The tyres installed on the motorcycle are much bigger and wider than the stock tyres. They may increase the stability on the straight roads but they also have a negative effect on fuel efficiency and might increase the weight of the motorcycle.
The headlamp gets a grille and a halogen bulb to give a retro feel. The shop has also installed new grips, switchgear and the handlebar has also been replaced. A tail tidy treatment has been given to the Interceptor so the is a minimal rear mudguard. This really enhances the stance of the motorcycle.
The seat has also been replaced by a custom brat seat. The instrument console is also all-new and comes with just a single pod that has a speedometer, a digital readout and a fuel gauge. From the factory, the Interceptor comes with a dual-pod instrument cluster that shows a speedometer, trip meter, fuel gauge and a tachometer.
Then the stock gear and clutch lever have been replaced by aftermarket ones which are adjustable. So, the rider can adjust the lever’s position according to the length of his fingers. Other mods include an upgraded YSS rear suspension. The YSS suspension is adjustable for rebound, length and they react faster than the stock suspension.
The list of modifications is not given so we do not know if any other modification like ECU upgrade or air filter has been done. From the factory, the Interceptor comes with a 648 cc air/oil-cooled engine that produces 47 Ps of max power and 52 Nm of peak torque. It is mated to a 6-speed gearbox which comes with slip and assist clutch.
