In addition to having the classiest name in motorcycling history, the Royal Enfield Interceptor featured a tuned version of RE’s biggest engine at the time. They were only sold in the US and Canada – as a ’70 model, this is a MkII model.

The MkIIs got forks and brakes from a Norton as well as an upgrade to the wet sump lubrication. The bike weighed about 410 pounds wet and was motivated by a 736cc engine. For more on the Interceptor, and why Motorcycle Classics called it “British motorcycling’s best kept secret”, check out this write-up.

The seller of this example says that it is one of the last twenty examples imported to the US, and he says that it is “all original” but the “engine has been rebuilt from the ground up.” Find this Interceptor for sale in the “Midwest” for $12,500 here on Access Norton.
