Royal Enfield Interceptor is a LOT faster than the C-Segment sedan: Proof! [Video]

We have featured many races on our website in the past that include motorcycles, cars and some times both. Here we have a similar video where an interceptor 650 and a Maruti Suzuki Ciaz sedan can be seen doing a drag race. Many of you might have already guessed the winner already but for those who have not, Let’s have a quick look at the video to find out who won the race, the Interceptor 650 or the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz.

The video has been uploaded by King Indian youtube channel. The video starts by introducing the vehicles, Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 and the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz sedan. The vlogger chose to ride the motorcycle and his friend was driving the car. They chose a closed road so that the drag race does not affect the public.

Te race was conducted in three rounds. In first round, both Ciaz and the Interceptor move off the line the at the same time but within seconds the Interceptor takes the lead and wins the race. The same thing happened in the second and the third round also. The Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 had won the race unanimously.

There are couple of factors that helped Interceptor win the race. First one and the most important factor is the weight of the vehicle. The Maruti Suzuki Ciaz is a lot heavier than the Interceptor 650 and that is the reason why even after having a bigger and powerful engine, it lost the race. If it was a top speed race, then there was a possibility that Ciaz would have won the race. Second is the wheel spin which is mentioned in the video. Every time the race started the front wheels of the Ciaz where spinning for few seconds which means he was losing traction and time while the Interceptor was taking the lead. To sum it up, the Ciaz is meant to be a family sedan and the Interceptor is meant to be a sporty, retro motorcycle. For those on a budget wanting the thrill of a sportscar, the Interceptor is the motorcycle to go for.

In this video the vlogger did the right thing by choosing a closed road but the rider was not wearing any type of safety gears including a helmet. It is highly dangerous to conduct such races without proper safety kit. We do not recommend doing such things and highly recommended that you wear a helmet while riding a two-wheeler.
