Braking duties are provided by a 320mm disc upfront and 240mm disc at the rear with dual-channel ABS system. The Interceptor 650 will be available in 3 colours: Orange Cush, Ravishing Red and Silver Spectre.

Powered by a new 4 stroke, single overhead cam, air-oil cooled, 648 cc parallel twin, the Continental GT650 makes 47bhp@7100 rpm and 52 Nm@4000 rpm and is mated to a 6-speed gearbox. Sitting on a steel tubular, double cradle frame, the motorcycle gets 41mm front fork with 110 mm travel and twin coil-over shocks with 88mm travel. Braking duties are taken care by a 320mm disc upfront and 240mm disc at the rear with dual-channel ABS system.
