I think it's a killer looking bike!  Lots of bling!
I did a LOT of thinking before choosing my Ravishing Red Interceptor ... visualizing it AFTER all of my wish-list mods, which include a candy red paint job on the side panels, tank and front fender.
2019 Interceptor.  May you be the windshield and not the bug.

my first 650 was actually the ravishing red.
one day I will have to give it its first clean. i'm not use to having one bike for so long...lol

here's the clip to the ride with slash/cut exhausts. ive ordered another set of exhausts as I think these take away the balance of the bike but for AU$160 it was worth a play

I know you did this as a preventive measure, but can you feel a difference? My Triumph ran awful at low rpm until I installed the BoosterPlug. Then I disconnected it for the first service and the software update from the dealer was almost as effective. Still not a smooth as the Interceptor. Also wondering why you didn't go for the Powertronic that's made specifically for the Interceptor. It's only a few bucks more than the BoosterPlug. Not nearly as much as a Powercommander.

I think I read somewhere the powertronic is more involved to install. now I did test ride the bike with booster and exhaust today and I must confess I was impressed with the overall outcome! I still have not done the air filter mod either but have ordered one in. here's my actual test ride clip

Hell, Wild Bill, now I'll have to get me one of those twins.
So badass my Enfield's actually illegal  in India.

Legal enough to pass muster if they don't look too closely in Woodbridge, Virginia, where the buses don't run at night, holidays or weekends

no kidding with that exhaust and booster plug it would knock over a standard 650 very easy...lol if you look back at my clip I am not even doing full throttle hits. just roll ons. so far in 1000 miles I have never ever hit the throttle stopper. just ordered the dna air filter plus my new exhausts may arrive today so if so I may fit and compare them.
I wouldn't say I like these -I just got them cheap and thought i'd try them out. I know I wouldn't pay the dealer $500 for them and I like throwing money...lol

Those are the same ones I got. I thought they were a bit loud. I'm back to the stock ones for now. Really liking the AEW 201 that sit horizontal instead of the upsweep. They do it with a clever downward bend at the inlet. But they are more money and I bought three bikes last week. ::)

I find the offset end cap on these to be to quite appealing.

Thinking maybe I'll contact him about acquiring an unfinished set. Without brackets or front covers welded on, also without any polishing or cleanup of the welds
