Choosing between the RE Interceptor 650 and the H-D Street 750

22nd Apr 2019 3:27 pm

Which of these two bikes is a better value for money proposition, the Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 or the Harley Davidson Street 750?

I am contemplating an upgrade to a larger-capacity motorcycle. Between the Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 and the Harley Davidson Street 750, which would be the more desirable one? I have no strict budget restriction, however, a value for money proposition is something no one can overlook.

AAA You could argue that the Harley Davidson badge is more desirable than Royal Enfield, and the eventual volume of Interceptors that will be on the road in the future will make the Harley Davidson more exclusive as well. The Harley also packs a very likeable V-twin with a fair amount of additional torque. But when it comes to the riding experience, the Interceptor will prove to be easier, more comfortable and more enjoyable over less-than-perfect roads. It’s also a good handler and has strong braking performance. The Interceptor also offers far more value, not just in terms of the fantastic initial purchase price, but also in terms of very reasonable aftersales costs. There will be a long waiting period for the Royal Enfield, but if you can be patient, you’ll be very happy with what the bike has to offer.
