We just reported to you last week that we are nearing the Royal Enfield 750cc launch sometime this festive season. It seems like the highly awaited bike just cannot manage to hide under a sheet. This time around it was the Royal Enfield CEO Rudratej Singh along with its parent company Eicher’s CEO Siddhartha Lal who took to Twitter and posted a picture of the motorcycle after riding it on the Bruntingthrope track in Hillingdon, London. We get a minimal but authentic look at the Royal Enfield 750cc (Interceptor). The smile on the faces of the two CEOs makes us anxious what a charm the motorcycle would be to drive on road.
The bike is supposedly coming in two avatars. One is a cafe racer beefed up Continental GT and the other will be similar to the Triumph Street Twin.
The Royal Enfield 750cc (Interceptor) will supposedly make 50BHP of power and 60nm of torque. It will come with a single disk brake on both the wheels and ABS will also be present.
Competition of the Royal Enfield Interceptor:
The Royal Enfield Interceptor, when launched in India, will be the biggest displacement motorcycle built by an Indian manufacturer. It is believed it will come in a 750cc engine as Royal Enfield had previously expressed its interest in making 400-800cc engines as there was no affordable motorcycle in that price bracket. The segment, for now, is held firmly by the American Harley Davidson’s Street 750.
It will all come down to how well Royal Enfield 750cc will be priced in the Indian market. Royal Enfield has never had a real competitor in the sub 350cc market either. A relatively newer brand UM motorcycles launched two of its motorcycles to compete with Royal Enfield but could just not match the numbers.
Royal Enfield 750cc Interceptor Launch and Price in India:
The rumoured announcing date of the Royal Enfield 750 cc Interceptor is believed to be the 7th of November. The bike will launch in Europe soon after that and will hit the Indian shores a month later. Since the bike will totally be made in the country expect it to be priced competitively below 3.5 lakhs. This will give it a strong head start compared to the Street 750.
