16th January 2023 will see the launch of the Royal Enfield Super Meteor 650 in India. The 650cc cruiser bike will be sold in two versions, Standard and Tourer, with prices ranging from Rs 3.5 lakh to Rs 4 lakh, respectively (all, ex-showroom). This implies that it will be the most costly Royal Enfield motorcycle in the nation. The Astral (Blue, Black, and Green) and Interstellar (Green and Grey) paint schemes will be available for the Standard variation, while Celestial colours will be offered for the Tourer (Red and Blue).
The 648cc, air-and-oil-cooled, parallel-twin engine of the new Royal Enfield 650cc cruiser produces a maximum output of 47bhp at 7,250rpm. 52Nm at 5,650 rpm is the torque statistic for it. According to the manufacturer, 2,500 rpm is where 80% of the maximum torque is produced. Although the motor is taken from the RE Interceptor 650 and Continental GT 650, it has the custom mapping and gearing. The bike has a 6-speed constant mesh transmission.
The new Royal Enfield 650cc cruiser is the first product to include the Showa 43mm USD fork suspension. At the back, it has twin shocks with preload adjustment. The 320mm disc and 300mm disc rear brakes provide stopping force. The front and rear tyres on the model are 100/90-19 and 150/80-16, respectively. With a total weight of 241kg, the Royal Enfield Super Meteor 650 is the company’s heaviest motorcycle. However, its ground clearance and seat height (740mm) are the lowest (135mm).
The cruiser features a 15.7-litre gasoline tank and a 1500mm wheelbase. It measures 2260mm in length, 890mm in width (without mirrors), and 1155mm in height. The Royal Enfield Super Meteor 650 is the first RE motorbike equipped with a full-LED headlamp and the Tripper GPS pod. The switch cubes’ aluminium finishes add to their luxury appearance. A teardrop-shaped gasoline tank, black engine casings, and head and round LED taillamps are a few of its other standout features.
