Royal Enfield Interceptor Bootneck: One-off 650 raises £60,000 for charity

A one-of-a-kind Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 built by an Edinburgh motorcycle dealership has raised £60,000 for the Royal Marines Charity. The bike, known as Bootneck, was built by Saltire Motorcycles and was auctioned at the Royal Marines Charity Gala dinner on November 30, 2022 at London’s Guildhall.

The bike was commissioned by the RMA to mark 80 years of the Royal Marines Commandos and the 40th anniversary of the Falklands War.

“Whilst we could have chosen any number of marques, it made perfect sense for us to marry up the Royal Marines with Royal Enfield, given the manufacturer’s long history with the armed forces,” Saltire CEO Calum Murray said. “We chose the Interceptor since it provides the perfect blend of style and flair with rugged utilitarianism.”
