The Royal Enfield Super Meteor 650 has been unveiled at the EICMA Motorcycle Show in Milan, Italy. The teaser had already been released by the company. This will be Royal Enfield third 650cc motorcycle. Let us remind you that Royal Enfield already sells bikes in this segment, such as the Continental GT 650 and Interceptor 650. The interesting thing is that both of these bikes, like the Super Meteor 650, were introduced by the company at EICMA four years ago.
In terms of appearance, the Super Meteor cruiser bike has an upright riding position, a proper retro design, a tear-drop shaped fuel tank, rear tyre fenders, and a circular LED headlight. It has an old-school two-piece scalloped seat with taillight but no grabberels. Its overall design is influenced by the Meteor 350. That is, the Meteor 350 can be thought of as a smaller version of the Super Meteor. The tank now sports Royal Enfield badging, giving it a fresh and modern look. The cast-aluminium switch cubes are a first for a Royal Enfield motorcycle.
Performance and engine
The Super Meteor 650 rides on the same chassis as the 650 Twins. However, it has a new tubular steel frame that will allow for more comfortable pagination. In terms of engine and performance, it retains the same 648 cc parallel-twin oil/air-cooled engine that produces 47 bhp at 7250 rpm. At 5650 rpm, it produces maximum power and peak torque of 52.3 Nm. It will have a 6-speed transmission.
When will it be available in India?
According to reports, the Super Meteor 650 will be released in India first. It’s also possible that the company will show it off at Rider Mania, which will be held in Goa from November 18 to 20. Concerning the launch, it is expected to take place in December this year or January next year, according to reports.
