Hi All, For those who are interested in the new twins, I have had my Interceptor for some 3 weeks now and have covered 300 miles and my early impressions are very positive, the build quality is on another level, no more horrible silver paint over chrome and finish is excellent. The bike rides wonderfully, has averaged 65 MPG while I have been running in and the motor has bedded in nicely now and feels quite a bit stronger than when it was new. Engine is very strong and torque high as well, gearbox is a dream and you can have huge fun buzzing through the 6 speed box around the lanes, brakes, lights riding position all really good - in fact I have not touched anything to make it more comfortable and have only adjusted the chain once. I think that the fact it was designed and developed at the Bruntinghthorpe site shows that a lot of thought and testing has gone on with these new twins and I think they are going to be a huge success.
