I'm really liking the Intercepter. Sadly for RE, I'm very happy with my V7 III and W650, and don't need another modern classic twin.Even with the price difference, the V7 beats the RE for me, because its shaft driven, but, if the RE 650 twins are of good quality, I'd likely choose one over the Triumph Street Twin, because it's air cooled, and likely a more genuine classic feeling ride, and likely lighter as well.
Wow! I was expecting something much heavier. With only 40 hp from a 650 the engine is under-stressed and I would expect that to mean reliable, much like the V7. At that price point these two offerings might even get some of the younger riders to buy. Now it's up to Royal Enfield to not screw this up.
Hmm, I'm too cheap to pay 8500 for that...But it looks like a motorcycle and an if it performs ok for what it is...Then it's a deal for someone
I like it but the 270deg crank is a show stopper for me.
Ha!Short answer...doesn't sound right...:-)
.....Probably an old Norton in my future.

Short answer...doesn't sound right... Won't..fixed it poor choice of words.No I have not, however the 270deg crank phasing will certainly not be the 360 timing I like very much..old Brit or BMW boxer. Just a personal preference, that's all.Probably an old Norton in my future.
It's a personal thing with me, too. I love the sound of a Brit-bike with 360 degree crank. With balance shaft(s), you get the lovely sound without the vibes. When I want 270 sound and feel, there's always a Guzzi or Ducati. I was sorry to see Triumph abandon the 360 degree crank on their new range of Bonnevilles.

a 2 or 3 y.o. R.E., so I'd take a bath on resale if I got tired of it...
They don't cost much, so I'd say, maybe a sponge bath. If you want a really good bath, buy a new BMW, and decide you don't like it..
LOL. The only BMW that would even tempt me would be a 77 or 78 R100RS. I had a 77 in 1987-88 & then sold it - immediately regretted it.
maybe I'll win the next big lottery prize & I can buy a house with a bigger garage.
