Parts and accessories making up the BPCR Interceptor Kit
To give the Royal Enfield Interceptor the expected touch of elegance, it was necessary to take particular care in the selection of parts and accessories. Here is an overview of the bike to allow you to appreciate the different elements that make up our kit.
Changes to the front of the Royal Enfield
22mm Tracker Handlebar
For the front part of the bike, our desire was to keep a sleek style while providing additional riding comfort. We opted for a 22 mm handlebar 80 cm wide and 13 cm high. This universal model, Tracker style, allows the pilot to adopt a higher, straighter, more natural and therefore less tiring position. A most appreciable comfort for better driving sensations.
The aesthetic finalization of the ends of the handlebars is ensured by the "Curve" handlebar ends of the Highsider brand
Speedometer Daytona Velona W
Always with the same desire to purify the Interceptor, the speedometer and rev counter fitted as standard have been replaced by a single measuring instrument, the Velona W from Daytona . The very complete Velona W speedometer displays both speed and rev counter. Its minimalist dimensions (Ø 80 mm, H 51 mm) advantageously replace the imposing original double counters. It is firmly fixed on the handlebars by a support of the Highsider brand.
Motogadget aluminum grips, Highsider mirrors, “Curve” end caps
The Mo.Grip Alu handles, from the German manufacturer Motogadget, bring the necessary touch of elegance to complete the BPCR kit. Machined from a block of aluminium, in addition to their design which leaves no one indifferent, they surprise with the comfort felt and the pleasant sensation to the touch.
It is also on the side of Germany that our choice fell for the mirrors. The Conero 2 from Highsider is an E4 approved bar end mirror made of premium quality black anodized aluminum (fixed with the "Curve" bar ends of the same brand). Its remarkable design and the care taken in its finishes combine perfectly with the BPCR Interceptor kit.
Front lighting: optics and indicators
The "look" of the motorcycle requires special care. For our BPCR kit, the choice once again fell on the Highsider brand for the quality and design of their 7” “ Voyage ” LED optics. A plug and play headlight installed in the original Interceptor housing .
The high beam, dipped beam and parking lights of this headlight develop extremely bright symmetrical lighting. The original fixings have been replaced by a model of CNC machined aluminum headlight brackets (high resistance black epoxy paint) adjustable in depth and having a location for indicators.
To meet the criteria of minimalism, performance and design, we opted for the amazing indicators manufactured by Motogadget. The size of a coin, the Mo.Blaze Pin only reveals itself when activated.
Motogadget IntensiLED ® technology provides crystal-clear 360° brightness. A discreet little gem, perfectly meeting our quality and performance requirements.
C.Racer Radiator Grille
To affirm the look of the bike, the Interceptor's radiator grille was replaced by a model manufactured by C.Racer. It is simply screwed in place of the original one and brings an undeniable aesthetic advantage to the motorcycle.
Changes to the rear
BPCR saddle imitation Alcantara in Plug and Play for the Interceptor
If the Royal Enfield Interceptor BPCR caught the attention of visitors during the Aces Experience, our high-end imitation Alcantara saddle, made by a saddler craftsman, met with great success.
Flexible, resistant, efficient and very pleasant to the touch, Alcantara is very popular with car manufacturers, whether for luxury vehicles or bucket seats used in particular in racing cars.
The unique design of its seams and its soft, silky texture enhance the original and elegant character of the motorcycle.
The high-end imitation Alcantara selected for this saddle also offers two important advantages :
- a fast drying speed , equal to any other saddle;
- superior support to classic saddles, the Alcantara material prevents slipping . A really appreciable plus for the pilot and especially for his or her passenger!
An elegance that conceals high-quality seating comfort guaranteed by a double layer of foam: a Bultex foam and a dense foam to ensure optimal back support and real comfort in everyday use.
100% waterproof , the foams are perfectly insulated, wrapped in a waterproof plastic film.
Note : to prevent any risk of tearing, the stainless steel staples are placed on an adhesive strip sewn to the cover.
BPCR kit rear fender + light, new Motogadget indicators
In order to give volume to the rear wheel, which was originally a bit narrow, we opted for this mudguard made from premium aluminium. It covers the wheel of the Interceptor while providing more character.
We have created our own license plate light and indicator bracket. A unique model, benefiting from a laser cut and painted in epoxy , which simply attaches to the original light support of the Interceptor.
Switched off, the Mo.Blaze Tens 1 indicators are practically invisible, but beware, once activated, the surprise is total! the flashing, extremely bright, is perfectly visible from afar, even in direct sunlight. Approved , the Mo. Blaze Tens 1 benefit from IntensiLED® technology for optimal clarity and safety.
Plug & play YSS suspensions on the Interceptor
The YSS RE-MO-302-T shock absorbers ( TÜV certification ) are plug and play on the Royal Enfield Interceptor. They provide additional comfort and more efficient handling, especially on roads “marked by time”. We also appreciate the fact that they allow adjustment thanks to a simple and accessible adjustment of the preload .
For our model, we opted for white springs as a reminder of the tank. Indeed, if the RE-MO-302-T has black springs as standard, several color choices are available, an ideal option to best adapt to your project.
The tour of the bike done, remains a little pleasure to do, switch on the ignition and start the Interceptor which is just waiting to express itself. Admittedly, the Brazoline Megaphone silencers are not approved but what a sound! Powerful without being aggressive, they purr like they should, well… just the way we like them.
