I want a bike for long-term use and have shortlisted the Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 and the
Jawa Perak. Which one would be the most comfortable on occasional long rides?

AAA We haven’t ridden the Jawa Perak yet and the bike isn’t expected to be ready until at least August 2019, so we can’t comment directly on that bike. What we can tell you is that the Interceptor offers a much higher level of refinement and performance than the Jawa and Jawa Forty Two we have recently ridden. As far as reliability goes, both products have much to prove in this regard. But if money is no concern, we suggest you go for the superior riding experience of the twin-cylinder Royal Enfield.
