Keeway V302C V-twin bobber vs Royal Enfield Interceptor 650: Price, specs, features

Interceptor 650 vs. Keeway V302C

Keeway, a sister brand of Benelli, announced the launch of the new Keeway V302C V-twin bobber in the Indian market earlier this week. Needless to say, this bobber bike is in a segment of its own and doesn’t quite compete with anything else head-on. However, at what it costs (or less), there are some pretty daunting offerings to consider, including the hugely popular Royal Enfield Interceptor 650. Here’s how the two compare on paper.

Engine and specs:

Both bikes on the list feature a twin-cylinder setup, however, these machines are apart in terms of engine displacement as well as output numbers. While the Keeway V302C V-twin bobber is powered by a 298cc liquid-cooled twin-cylinder engine that produces 29.5hp of power and 26.5Nm of peak torque, the Royal Enfield comes with a larger engine of 648 cc that is designed to run. a maximum power of 47 hp, supported by a maximum torque of 52 Nm. This engine is associated with a 6-speed transmission.

Features:

In terms of features, the Benda V302C comes with dual-channel ABS, alloy wheels, LCD instrument panel, slipper clutch and LED for headlights and taillights. In addition to this, the safety features of the Hungarian bobber also include multi-level traction controls. However, Royal Enfield does not offer these many features but still comes with an anti-lock braking system. There are no alloy wheels currently offered on the Interceptor, but the same is expected to be part of the next model year update.

Price:

Obviously, Hungarian is an expensive offering among the two. It starts from Rs 3,89,000 (ex-showroom) for the Glossy Gray paint theme and costs up to Rs 4,09,000 (ex-showroom) for the Glossy Red option. Customers have to pay a higher price just to get the bike in red, while the rest of the details remain unchanged. Moving on, the Interceptor 650 has been priced at Rs 2,88,170 (ex-showroom) in India. It is available in three variants and seven colors with the top variant priced at Rs 3,13,913 (ex-showroom).

Which one should you go for?

Both are quite different offerings in their areas. However, if you prefer more power but can live with less features, Royal Enfield is for you, otherwise Benda V302C is also a good option.
