The First Bike Riding and Handling Review

Everything else about the Interceptor remains the same – components like the suspension and brakes have been left untouched – and understandably so. You can see from our performance tests that the braking figures of the Interceptor are some of the best we’ve recorded at the price point. 

The ride quality remains the same as well. The rear suspension is a bit on the softer side and, in its stock setting, tends to bottom out over deeper potholes. This is probably the only notable downside to the Interceptor’s package. Over a long day on the saddle, you will find yourself yearning for a little more support from both, the suspension and the narrow seat. Having said that, the rear shock absorbers can be adjusted for pre-load and you can tweak it to reduce the brunt of the impact.
