Inspired by the iconic 60’s Interceptor with its greatest following in the American west coast, fitting perfectly into the easy-going, fun narrative of the time, the new Interceptor 650 Twin reimagines the sun-drenched California beach lifestyle. This modern classic is the essence of a British roadster with a dash of a California Desert Racer blending timeless style and contemporary performance.
The Interceptor reimagines the laid-back and easy-going lifestyle of the sun-drenched California beach. The quintessential roadster from the 1960’s still fits into the contemporary narrative of being young, free and fun. Through twisty back roads, highways or the urban jungle, it rides with equal ease, bringing together timeless style and modern performance.
The 648cc engine, backed with an air/oil-cooled parallel twin configuration is built for real world riding. While offering a very usable 47 horsepower at 7150 RPM and maximum of 52 Nm torque at 5250 RPM, the secret of the new engine lies in the way the power is delivered. The smooth throttle response throughout the rev range ensures sufficient power to make light work of city traffic or cruise effortlessly along the open roads.
Easy Like a Sunday Morning
The wide handlebar, aligned with a low seat height and confidence-inspiring riding position, is set up for comfort, with a gentle sports bias. It helps the rider make the most of the agile chassis and stay connected to the machine. The Interceptor is smartly designed to have a 174 mm ground clearance and a whippy lean angle to help it go through any road with ease. With a 24-degree rake angle and 106 mm of trail, it feels nimble in the city, planted on the highways and confident on the twisties
