Inspired by the iconic 60’s Interceptor with its greatest following in the American west coast, fitting perfectly into the easy-going, fun narrative of the time, the new Interceptor 650 Twin reimagines the sun-drenched California beach lifestyle. This modern classic is the essence of a British roadster with a dash of a California Desert Racer blending timeless style and contemporary performance. The frame was developed with Harris Performance, does the twisties of old Gombak road with ease and the agility is surprisingly nimble, even weighing at 202kg without fuel. we probably have a full tank under us during the test (approx 215kg)
