What I have heard is up to 865 cc, 105+ HP.

At introduction, there is supposed to be kits to take a stock engine up to the mid 80's and retain warranty.

Apparently the people who have seen them in the flesh say the S & S exhaust cans on the Interceptor gets everyone's attention. Not obnoxious, but attention getting.

From what I have seen of the engine cutaways, there is room to grow and the basic engine is pretty well thought out.


Never underestimate the human ability to elevate stupid to a whole new level!.

Also interestingly---there is a faint US connection to the new Royal Enfield Technical Center.
It is based at Bruntingthorpe in Leicestershire---about 20 miles from where I lived in UK before moving to US some 18 years ago.
They mention in the article a test track.
Bruntingthorpe was built as a USAF bomber base in WWII and the test track I guess is based on the old runways.
Another gem from my vast repository of useless information!

Some may or may not know Mr. Warburton is the reason Hinkley Triumphs are where they are in the market. He will only improve RE. The head honcho at RE wants to dominate the medium displacement market. My little-ole 64 SF-Hornet 650 runs down the road just fine. Hope RE does good here and gets more young and older riders riding

Went to a bike show yesterday, called Motorbeurs Utrecht, this is a huge event, with everything the motorbike business has to offer in a big exhibition hall.
All major motorbike manufacturers had their bikes on display, and also clothing, helmets and other things motorbike related could be seen.
Enfield was also there, with several new Interceptors, and it was my first view of these bikes, they looked nice, and fairly priced, although the attention to detail left a bit to be desired , the painted wheelhubs looked ugly imo, but generally , these machines looked like good value for money.
There was a lot of interst for the Enfields, but what struck me most was the fact that the interest came mainly from grey haired old men (like myself), while the guys and girls seen at the stands of other manufacturers were much younger.
Is this perhaps a sign on the wall ? the last hurray for a soon to be extinct breed of bikers ? I think the new Interceptor deserves bettter,.
just my 2c

I attended the "Progressive Motorcycle Show" near Chicago yesterday, saw the new Enfield twins, and I was impressed by them, both in the quality of manufacture, AND the price.
Looks like good value for the money.
The local triumph dealer will also be handling the Enfield line this spring.
