Hi Enfielders,

I'm looking at getting a new bike next season, and the Interceptor is one I'm considering.

There are a couple of issues you might be able to help me with:

1. I'm aware the suspension leaves a bit to be desired. What aftermarket solutions are available to address this?
I live in Calgary AB Canada, so was wondering if there were any North American based companies that offer suspension upgrade kits..?

2. The power output leaves a bit to be desired. What aftermarket solutions are available to address this, too?
At 48 bhp, it's by far the least powerful of the bikes I'm considering, which may become a problem in the long term.

Also, could anyone tell me how easy they are to maintain yourself?

One aspect that is fairly important is the bike being the least amount of hassle, which is why one of the bikes I'm looking at is belt-drive.

Any insights would be much appreciated!

Thanks - DT

I’ve read here and elsewhere a company called YSS has replacement shocks.

Lose weight off of the bike and yourself, supposedly these are torquey bikes. Fast, cheap and reliable, pick two. Kawasaki has some nice vintage themed bikes, W and Z900.

I just bought a brand new INT650 and can attest to the torque. Losing weight on the bike with an aftermarket exhaust setup and removing the center stand could help if you’re looking for more performance. At least for me it’s perfect as is since I use it to commute mostly. Hope this helps.
