Royal Enfield Super Meteor 650 has finally been launched in the Indian market. The cruiser bike is currently the most expensive Royal Enfield in the nation and is priced between Rs 3.48 lakh and Rs 3.78 lakh. It has 648cc parallel-twin engines that are air and oil cooled in Standard and Tourer versions. The Continental GT 650 and Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 use the same powerplant. However, the firm has remapped the Super Meteor’s gearing and engine.
As previously announced, the Royal Enfield Super Meteor 650 will be offered in two models with a starting price of Rs 3.48 lakh and seven colour options.
The Royal Enfield Super Meteor 650 is built on a brand-new frame created by Harris Performance, a chassis specialist that Royal Enfield now owns. The motorcycle’s function and the new chassis are both built to carry more weight. To achieve this, not only in the segment but also when compared to the BMW GS 1250, the Meteor 650 has the most extended wheelbase.
The new Meteor is 4 mm shorter than BMW’s top adventure bike, with a 1500 mm wheelbase. Additionally, the Meteor 650 weighs 241 kg, making it the heaviest Enfield ever. However, it is simply because of the 740 mm low saddle height.
The new Royal Enfield Super Meteor 650, following the Interceptor and the GT 650, is the third motorbike with a 650cc parallel twin engine. With the aid of a 6-speed manual gearbox, the engine generates 47 horsepower and 52 Nm of torque.
The Super Meteor 650 is available in five exterior colours: Astral Black, Astral Blue, Astral Green, Interstellar Grey, and Interstellar Green. The Super Meteor 650 Tourer has a touring windscreen, a premium touring seat, and a pillion backrest. It is available in two dual-tone colours: Celestial Red and Celestial Blue.
The engine has been tried and tested throughout time, and because of its tuning, it is a dependable machine. The tourer benefits from the comfortable, untroubled engine, which gives it ample power while retaining its position.
Showa USD front forks and 5-step pre-loadable dual shocks are installed in the Meteor 650’s rear suspension.
In addition to alloy wheels, a semi-digital instrument cluster, Enfield’s Tripper navigation system, and a variety of extras, the Meteor 650 have disc brakes with ABS at both ends, disc brakes at both ends, and disc brakes on both sides.
