This bike is a INT650 also known as the Interceptor in foreign markets—is an unassuming, simple, fun roadster with a combination of classic authenticity and modern-day performance. But it deserves big, big attention, especially from less-experienced novice motorcyclists or those looking for a do-it-all machine that won’t break the bank. Powered by a 648cc, SOHC, air-/oil-cooled, eight-valve, parallel-twin engine that punches a modest 42.2 hp and 37.9 pound-feet of torque. The INT650 is a smooth-running and surprisingly wicked-fun motorcycle on the road. A 270-degree firing order results in a throaty rumble during low-end power delivery, while remaining almost vibration free throughout the rev range. It’s a seriously comfortable ride. Initial throttle response is crisp, yet mellow in delivery—a perfect match for less-experienced riders. But power is plentiful at nearly any rpm and rips with enough coaxing. The relatively flat torque curve means the Enfield has flexibility in gear selection of its slick-shifting and well-spaced six-speed gearbox.
