Interceptor MK1A TT7 & GP7

To Next Model MKII

“Nearly forgotten by British Enthusiasts, the Royal Enfield Interceptor is powered by one of only two 750cc twin Cylinder engines made in this country. Until recently it was for export only. Now, by stepping up production, the independent Wiltshire factory can offer the mighty Interceptor to riders in the UK.”
