I have a 2017 Triumph T100 bought new and a Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 also bought new. There is no comparison for price value and the Interceptor wins hands down at 40-50% of the price of the Triumph. It does not have some of the sparkle of the T100, but it seems to be quality made and pretty responsive if something is wrong like a recall on the brakes because they were not adonized and some rust appeared on the factory calipers. Love riding the Enfield and it certainly has enough power. The Triumph has a slight edge on the highway at 900 CCs, but the Enfield is a great performer. Both bikes have a nice retro look. I should mention the Enfield has disk brakes front and back while the Triumph only has front disk brakes. I have 1000 miles on each and no service issues so far.

"Interceptor" is always a great name for any vehicle
