Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 - Owner's Manual > Rules of the Road

  • Be sure your number plate is installed in the position specified by law and it is clearly visible at all times.
  • Ride at a safe speed that is consistent with the type of road surface you are on. Pay strict attention while riding on the following surfaces :
    • Dusty
    • Oily
    • Icy
    • Wet
    • Sand
  • Watch for loose debris, such as leaves, slippery substances or gravel that can hamper the stability of your motorcycle.
  • Keep to the correct side of the road centre line when meeting oncoming vehicles.
  • Actuate your turn signals and exercise caution when passing other vehicles going in the same direction. Never try to pass another vehicle going in the same direction at street intersections, on curves, or when going up/or down a hill.
  • At street intersection give the right-of-way to the motorcycle on your left or right. DO NOT presume you have the right-of-way.
  • Adhere to the rules of the road with respect to your country when preparing to stop, turn or pass. While turning either right or left, watch for pedestrians, animals, as well as other vehicles.
  • All traffic signs, including manual controls at intersections, should be obeyed promptly. SLOW DOWN at traffic signs near schools and CAUTION signs at railroad crossings.
  • When intending to turn, signal at least 100 feet (30.5 meters) before reaching the turning. Be close to the centre line (unless local rules require otherwise), slow down and then turn carefully.
  • Never jump a traffic light. When a change is imminent from GO to STOP (or vice versa) at intersections, slow down and wait for the light to change to green. Never run through a yellow or red traffic light.
  • DO NOT leave the curb or parking area without signalling. Be sure your way is clear to enter moving traffic. A moving line of traffic always has the right-of-way.
  • When parking the motorcycle, park on a firm and at surface to prevent it from falling over.
  • Protect your motorcycle against theft. After parking your motorcycle, ensure that the steering head is locked and then remove the ignition key.


Your motorcycle is equipped with convex mirrors and have a curved surface.

This type of mirror is designed to give a much wider view of the rear than a normal at mirror. However, vehicles and other objects seen in this type of mirror will look smaller and farther away than when seen in a at mirror.

Use care when judging the size or distance of vehicles / objects seen in these mirrors.



To establish the relative distance of vehicles / objects behind your motorcycle through the mirrors, adjust each mirror in such a way, that a small portion of your shoulder is visible and a large portion behind your motorcycle is seen clearly with reference to your riding posture.
