Royal Enfield Interceptor 650
In May 2017, the brand new technical center of Royal Enfield was inaugurated in Leicester, England, marking the return of the legendary name in Old Albion after almost 50 years! Its modern facilities have the latest technology, while the motorcycle frames are designed in collaboration with Harris Performance, which has now also become Eichers’ property since 2015. The most recent “children” of this massive factory progress, are the dual-cylinder Interceptor and Continental GT models, with the 648cc air-cooled engine and a single overhead camshaft.
When we first laid eyes on them as prototypes, in EICMA 2017, we were immediately intrigued to design and build components on and around them. The first drawings were made on the spot and pretty soon after that we ended up transforming the Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 into a Scrambler bike.
For the Royal Enfield Interceptor we tried to build parts that wouldn’t change the classic character of the bike but only add a small touch to make it more scrambler look oriented. Those are bolt on parts so there is no need for conversions for their installation, and according to the owner’s preference, they could easily be restored to their original form. The good thing is that both the two different C-RACERS sets can be mounted on both types of motorcycles, so a Royal Enfield Interceptor owner or/and a Royal Enfield Continental GT owner can transform it into either a Café Racer or a Scrambler bike.
