With just under 2000km on the clock Jeff has already learned a trick or two about refining his Royal Enfield Interceptor INT 650...

After a few months and just under 2000km we have an update on our Long Term Royal Enfield Interceptor INT 650. Jeff has made some improvements to the bike, including the sound, chassis alignment, gear shift operation and a few other things. Check out his video update. Next week we will publish the first service and another update including fitting a DNA filter kit. So far, it’s been an awesome machine!
