Anybody add a Royal Enfield 650 to their shed?
« on: April 17, 2021, 05:02:02 AM »
I've read lots of reviews of the Royal Enfield.
It seems to be fairly smooth & certainly has more power than the Inazuma.  The seat seems to be a big letdown.
My thoughts lean toward the Royal Enfield not being appreciably better than the GW250 so I would be curious to read any first hand accounts.
Thank you.

Not ridden one, but double the bhp has to make  a significant difference.
I think thy're built to a price, but quality is quite good.
A Triumph Bonneville, is more powerful again, better built, but rather more expensive, aswell.

Hi there,

Well, it's in Spanish but Google translator may do the job. Review by an experienced and old school rider who has owned literally tenths of motorcycles. He really loves her. https://www.alguersuari.com/2019/03/royal-enfield-interceptor-650-mi-nueva.html?m=1

No problema. 
(Actually, I remember almost no Spanish so my use of "problema" is a little joke.  Ha ha)

I clicked the link and immediately Google offered to translate it to English!

Ha ha ha, cool!

Good news that Google Translate worked this time. There are other posts in that page depicting modifications done to the bike too (screen, panniers, rear springs...).
