G.P.R. Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 Exhaust


Interceptor 650 exhaust options
Last month we saw a new range of upgrade replacement options for Yamaha's Ténéré 700 from Italian exhaust specialist G.P.R.
This month we see the company's new design options for the fast selling Royal Enfield Interceptor - a low cost middleweight that has been internationally well received by test riders, dealers and consumers and one destined to occupy a unique position among Europe's most popular models.

Building on the Indian manufacturer's success with its Continental GT and Himalayan, these new parallel twins are a performance engineer's blank canvas just waiting for owners to exploit the custom and performance opportunities offered by this robust Harris Performance developed chassis platform.
Seen here are two of the G.P.R. Italia options for the Royal Enfield 650s - the Powercone line and the Vintacone.

Both are made in stainless steel, Euro 4 homologated, and form part of the new G.P.R. project to achieve a net zero carbon impact for its production by 2023 with the use of raw materials that are recyclable at end-of-life, with common steel scrap making up 99% by product weight.
Delivering a choice of classic or aggressive look, these exhausts are said to provide a 2.5 hp increase over the stock exhausts and a 50% weight saving.
"All manufacturers need to take their responsibilities seriously," says owner Mauro Orlandi, "and doing so doesn't mean that increased performance and great looks have to be compromised.

"The aesthetics of our designs for the Royal Enfield are perfectly adapted to the classic, naked styling of the Interceptor 650, with an excellent balance of classic aesthetics and our innovative technical solutions such as the removable dB killer for track use and stainless steel coating on the Powercone, a line developed as a result of our MotoGP and SBK experience. It weighs just 1.86 kg, mounts as a direct OE replacement, is compatible with side bags and central stand and, where present on the original, the lambda probe housing is provided." They are backed by a two-year warranty.
