The Royal Enfield Super Meteor 650 debuted in India during the Rider Mania in Goa after being introduced at the 2022 EICMA. The Chennai-based company will introduce its first significant product in 2023, a cruiser motorcycle. The model’s prices will be revealed in the first few weeks of January. It will be the priciest RE option available in the nation. For the Standard variant and the Tourer version, the bike is anticipated to cost roughly Rs 3.5 lakh and Rs 4 lakh, respectively (ex-showroom).
The RE Super Meteor 650 Standard variant will be offered in Astral (Blue, Black, and Green) and Interstellar colour schemes, the business has already said (Grey and Green). The Tourer will initially have the Celestial (Blue and Red) paint scheme. It has a brand-new chassis despite being the third Royal Enfield to be created on the 650cc basis of the company.
The cruiser motorbike has several firsts for a RE model in terms of features. The Tripper GPS pod and a Showa USD fork suspension are standard equipment on the next Royal Enfield Super Meteor 650. Small windscreen and pillion seat are characteristics of the Standard variant, effectively stripped-down form. The Tourer, on the other hand, has a pillion perch and a significantly larger windscreen. Additionally, it receives a backrest that is absent from the Standard model.
The 648cc, air and oil-cooled parallel twin engine that powers the RE Interceptor 650 and Continental GT 650 also supplies power to the future Royal Enfield 650cc motorcycle. The motor generates 52Nm of torque at 5,650 rpm and 47bhp peak power at 7,250 rpm. According to Royal Enfield, the cruiser’s engine has custom programming and gearing and delivers 80% of its peak torque at 2,500 rpm. With a kerb weight of 241kg, the Royal Enfield Super Meteor 650 is the brand’s heaviest bike.
