I'm planning to buy a new bike. I'm confused between interceptor or new Classic 350. Is interceptor worth the extra cash?

Absolutely.

They are totally different bikes. Depends which style appeals more to you. I personally would pick up Classic anyday

and drag it around behind other bikes on a highway, or maybe ask an Interceptor owner to Tow you.

 

:P

Dude interceptor has nothing on a classic.
Also one has to be shallow to just ride for speeding.

Lol to each his own, and who told you power is all about speeding, it is about getting to 0-120 much faster so you are less fatigued in a ride, engine is much more stress free, runs at lower RPMS overtaking is a breeze and so on and so forth, but won't matter much with classic as it will hardly reach 120 :P

 

And if you mean interceptor has nothing on classic, then i guess you are either talking about looks or sound, if it is looks to each his own, but if it is about sound, then mayeb that is shallow, or maybe not, what ever makes you happy :P

 

Atleast with the new classic based on meteor, hopefully it would not be a bike and vibrator at the same time.

I've never actually owned a motorcycle before. It's going to be my first bike. As far as I know, both are cruisers. So I'm bit confused between both :wallbash:. @AtheK how is interceptor btw? Is the ride quality good? Most of friends own classic and every single one of them complaints about the vibrations.

Interceptor is one bike which is not a Royal Enfield, It feels like a bike from a different brand altogether. The engine is butter smooth, the clutch is very light and gear changes are Slick. Does not vibrate, sounds nothing like any of those dug dug Enfield's, and has a triumph like mini whistle when you close the throttle. It has some downsides, but they can be addressed. 

 

Electricals is the only place it feels like a Royal Enfield, they have a mind of there own, but overall are ok, just be careful with pressure wash. It does 80-  120 easily on the highway, overtaking is a breeze. Little on the heavier side, so that is something that will take time getting used to.

 

Overall I am very impressed with the bike though I have had a couple of issues with it in initial few months, something that all RE's have, you need to be used to it, or be prepared for it.

The riding posture of interceptor is nothing but fatigue :loser:

 

Also the goal of reaching 120 or reaching 120 faster is nothing but shallow. Anyone work this mindset needs to grow up :tongue:

If you've never owned one, don't go with spec sheets or what your friends say. Enfield has all the bikes laid out for test ride. Drive to your hearts content and decide for yourself. Know what you're looking for, rides to office or weekend trips, decide based on your use case.

Thanks @AtheK and @blitzkreiig. My local Royal Enfield doesn't have interceptor available for test ride. However they have classic. Will try classic and try to test ride interceptor in some other city.

If it is your first bike avoid Royal Enfield, the niggles will get on your nerves, you need to be hands on, to do some stuff at home or if you have a service center near your house.

 

You will be better of buying a Honda, get the CB350RS, niggle free bike and lighter too.

Thankfully, the service center is 200 metres away from my house. The honda service in my area is absolutely garbage. Very unprofessional staff members. I've an activa scooter and everytime I visit the service center, the experience downright terrible.

Proximity to service center helps. Also throw in meteor in the mix, test ride all three. Also do let us know your use case, if it will mainly be city rides classic is good, but if you will regularly take it to highways after getting used to city riding, you will soon sell off the classic :P

 

Btw regarding Honda, CB350RS is sold through Bigwings and also serviced through Bigwings, and they only service limited bikes including Superbikes.

My use case is mostly city rides but I'll soon take it to highways. I'll give Himalayan a shot as well.
