Is that black thing it's on the shipping crate frame or something?  I wonder what they do with those? Return them to India? Am I the only one who sees the makings of a great little service lift there?
So badass my Enfield's actually illegal  in India.

Wildbill you're killing me here. I want a INT650 so bad but after my latest trip to the hospital, and all the stuff they decided I needed to spend my money on, I can"t pay attention with a co-signer.

I DO expect a full and detailed write up though, so get out there and ride it like you stole it!

Having bought two quads that arrived in a steel frame they easily convert to great medium duty benches 😀 and the one my trike kit arrived in is sitting on the bottom of a concrete swimming pool supporting water plants after converting to a frog pond 😛

I like the fact that the side panels say Interceptor As Honda has that name copyrighted here in the States so all the get is INT650 . If I do end up buying one I'll have to get someone in a far off country to send me new decals!

I'm no lawyer, but I do wonder how Honda might have any hope of successfully defending the trademark name "Interceptor" against a company like Royal Enfield, which was manufacturing an Interceptor model from 1960 to 1970, to say nothing of Mad Max's Jensen, an earlier model of which first saw the light of day in 1950.
So badass my Enfield's actually illegal  in India.

thanks to all who liked the Ravishing Red..LOL

well if I had to be critical on the bike just on looking at photos etc I don't like the pattern on the seat. that might change when I actually see the bike. in real life it could actually look better.
back to the chrome model. well there might be a 6 week delay or more before that gets here in Australia. to me that's a bit of a gamble now and that would put me into the colder riding weather which I would not want to do and the bike would sit. so I thought it over and decided to take the opportunity and buy the first bike in stock
just say I think this bike is alright and it may be I don't know ...other have said so but they are test riders and test riders like to go back to bike shops and test bikes. after-all if they say all bikes they test were shit...well they wouldn't test or not do too many more...lol
my test won't be hard just a visual and a comparison ride against a c5 where roughly $800 splits them.
back again to the chrome. say I really do like this bike. well to be honest there is probably a good chance i will ride it for a short time and move it on and go for the chrome model and I guess some-one will get a used but not abused Interceptor.
then again I might say -shit this is a nice looking bike....honestly I just don't know but I will soon!
