This could indicate that Royal Enfield is working on a new smaller capacity version of its Interceptor model for the Indian market. The new Royal Enfield Interceptor 350 which is what even the video caption suggests could be in the works.

As seen from the spy video, the new Royal Enfield Interceptor 350 carries forward most of the components from the larger 650 model. This includes the gold-painted gas canisters for the rear suspension, halogen tail lamps, pillion grab rail and even the turn indicators.

The new 350cc motorcycle from Royal Enfield is also expected to come with standard telescopic forks at the front. Braking will continue to be handled by disc brakes at both ends, supported by dual-channel ABS as standard.

The new Interceptor 350 could also feature the same instrument cluster as the recently introduced Meteor 350, including the new tripper navigation system as well.

We also expect the new Royal Enfield Interceptor 350 to borrow the brand-new 349cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled SOHC engine, which debuted on the Meteor 350 motorcycle. The power and torque figures are expected to remain identical with 20.2bhp and 27Nm of peak torque. It will come mated to a five-speed gearbox.
