    Default Accessories sold as a kit - For RE Interceptor 650

    Hello All,

    I just received my RE Interceptor 650 about 5 days ago. When I wanted to buy basic accessories like wind-shield, heel-guard, intake-cover etc. I was told that I can not buy it separately and must buy as a kit which would cost me approximately 8K.

    Can anyone please confirm if this is true? I don't think handlebar brace (Rs 600), Bar end finisher kit (App Rs 1200), Machined Reservoir Cap (Rs 675) are worth it! Mind you, I had already paid 3100 for large engine guard!

    Thanks!

    Himanshu

    You should not buy accessories from showroom because these items are not manufacture by third party and showroom guys purchase such items from shops. then add their margin some times 100% on purchase cost then sell it to customers.

    It least what i observe so far so it is always better to buy accessories from outside where you will experience variety of option to choose from.

    Dear Deepak,

    Thank you. Unfortunately, in the case of Interceptor, There are hardly any available in shops!

    While all accessories I got installed are RE, it is really unfair to customer as one has to shell out 8K for not everything we may need.

    I don't think that's the case. I got mine delivered on 2nd Feb and was not given any such quote of 8k even when I asked only for the flyscreen.

    Bro, give it a couple of months and the market will be flooded with the accessories.
    Interceptor being a recent launch will not have many option in the aftermarket right now. If you can wait for some time, you might get a lot of variety to choose from at a lot less price.

    May I also suggest to check online. They too get the aftermarket stuff at a good price.
    I would like to thank my legs for supporting me, my arms for being always by my side and my fingers; I could always count on them.

    Hello Guys,

    Update: I spoke with someone at Zana - Delhi and they are coming out with a touring combo for Interceptor 650 in couple of weeks. They already have top rack available. I am waiting for a combo (Saddle Stay, Top Rack, Pillion Back Support).

    Cheers

    Nice .
    Meanwhile keep an eye out for online retailers as well. You might get a better deal.
    Do post lots of pics after the mod is done. a fully kitted up tour ready bike would be really eye catching.

    Cheers
