Transportation has played a great role in our lives. It has basically made our lives 10x easier and simpler. Now going from point A to point B has become a lot easier. Through the development of new technologies and devices, companies are able to manufacture better and faster transportation. As time changes, the design and architecture changes as well. You can witness a lot of manufacturing going with this trend. But, there is one particular company that has stuck with the retro classic looks and made it timeless, Royal Enfield.
Royal Enfield is an India Based Motorcycle manufacturing company with its tag line being “The oldest global motorcycle brand in continuous production.” As the tag line states, it is the oldest global manufacturing brand and is widely known for its retro, classic designs of its motorcycle.
Royal Enfield released their 650cc interceptor way back in November of 2018. But recently, news has surfaced that Royal Enfield is releasing the gem of a motorcycle in Nepal as well. With almost perfect ratings across the board, this particular bike is to look out for when it drops in the Nepali market this year.
Design and Looks
When it comes to bikes and cars, architecture or design plays an important role. The first thing that grabs the attention of the rider is the design of the vehicle. If the vehicle doesn’t look appealing to the rider, the chances of purchase and riding drops significantly.
The Interceptor 650cc sports a retro, old but new in a sense. It doesn’t seek any sort of attention but with its chrome design, it does tend to catch some eyes. There are mudguards present in the bike itself make from metal than plastic with black extenders. Users can decide whether to add a toolkit or not as it all depends on the user preferences.
The other thing that is more important than design is the engine of the motorcycle. If the design of the bike or car looks sporty but doesn’t have the engine to back it up, the user might be unsatisfied. So to go along with the design, the bike should have a powerful engine to compliment the design.

It can dash out Max Power of 47 bhp @7250 rpm and Max Torque of 52 Nm @5250 rpm. As with almost all the bikes in the market, it has electronic fuel injection for fuel delivery.
