We decide to have a good look at the upcoming Royal Enfield Interceptor 750 cc motorcycle and discuss all the features of the most powerful Royal Enfield ever
The Royal Enfield 750 cc motorcycle is gradually inching closer to its launch and we finally have a lot many details of the upcoming RE. Of course, we always knew that the bike has a 750cc twin-cylinder engine and that it will come in a cafe racer body but there is even more that is to be known about this model. We have highlighted all the Royal Enfield Interceptor 750 cc features in our post here-
Royal Enfield Interceptor 750 cc Features
Here are all the upcoming Royal Enfield Interceptor 750 cc features you should know about. Do have a good read and tell us what is it that you like the most about the much awaited 750 cc motorcycles from Royal Enfield
Faster than KTM 390 Duke
As you can see in the video we have here, the new 750 cc RE is faster than even the very high performance KTM 390 Duke. You can see in the video that the Duke is doing a speedo indicated 156 KMPH and the test mule of the 750cc Royal Enfield Interceptor is simply too tough to catch for the rider of the Austrian motorcycle. We are guessing that this ‘bull’ will have a speedo indicated top speed of around 170 KMPH. Well, as they say, there is no replacement for displacement, no?
Most Powerful Production Bike from Royal Enfield
So far the most powerful bike we have seen from Royal Enfield has a 535cc engine. One of the best features of the upcoming RE is that it will become the most powerful model from the iconic manufacturer to go on sale in the country. The new motorcycle will be powered by an all new 750cc liquid cooled twin-cylinder engine. This engine, in all chances, will pump out a maximum power of 46 BHP along with a peak torque of 62 Nm. The powerful motor will come mated with a six-speed gearbox. In comparison, the Cafe Racer Continental GT 535 offers 29 BHP of maximum power along with 44 Nm of peak torque from the 535cc single cylinder powerhouse.

At least Two Body Styles
Until now it was believed that the 750 cc RE will have a cafe racer body type. However, latest spy pics suggest that the company is preparing at least two versions of its most powerful model ever. As you can see in the spy images we have here, there are two different types of the upcoming 750cc motorcycle. True, one of these is definitely a cafe racer. However, as is clearly evident, the other looks more like the standard model. The two motorcycles seen here boast a largely different styling and many different panels. There is a big difference in the fuel tanks and the seats of the two bikes. While one is a pure cafe racer in terms of looks, the other one has a regular bench seat and a more curvy tank.
Being a big displacement bike, we are not expecting anything stratospheric here. However, the bike will still offer you a mileage of roughly 20 KMPL. Coming from a twin cylinder 3/4-litre engine, it is a really good mileage figure. What do you think?
Killer Price Tag
Expected Price (ex-showroom)
Rs 3.5 Lakh
This will be the most expensive motorcycle from the Royal Enfield stables. But it will still cost lesser than what most of its rivals do. We are expecting an ex showroom price of Rs 3.5 lakh. This will make the bike a lot cheaper than the Harley Davidson Street 750, which costs more than Rs 4.5 lakh. This will give a clear edge to the homegrown 750cc model. Royal Enfield will be able to offer such a killer price tag using lot of components sharing with other bikes. Also, being an Indian manufacturer, it knows well to source parts from suppliers at a competent price point. Ultimately it will be a great benefit for the buyers.
Are you as excited about this bike as we are? We have got a gut feeling that this will be one really brilliant machine. Who knows, it will be the most desirable (and hopefully the most reliable as well) bike from the iconic bike brand. Which of these Royal Enfield Interceptor 750 cc features impress you the most?
