The anticipation around the Royal Enfield Super Meteor 650 is high, and it won’t be wrong to say that Indian enthusiasts have been waiting for this motorcycle for a long time. Well, the wait has come to an end. The new Royal Enfield Super Meteor 650 is unveiled at the EICMA 2022. However, the images of the motorcycles leaked prior to the official exercise. No doubt, it does look good and we can assure you that it will have impeccable road presence. It is the flagship motorcycle of the brand and will retail in two variants – Standard and Tourer.
Royal Enfield Super Meteor 650 Design
Yes, the Royal Enfield Super Meteor 650 looks appealing. The stance is amazing too. Thanks to the large 19-inch front wheel and a 16-inch rear rim, both of them are shod with rubber from CEAT. The teardrop tank gets an RE badge, while the seat is set low. Moreover, the seat is set low. The design further takes a neat shape around the rear with a subtle tail lamp. The exhaust pipes do not protrude out widely like other 650 cc motorcycles of the brand. In fact, the catalytic converter is neatly tucked away.
Moreover, the instrument console looks crisp too, and it does come with a Tripper navigation pod. Furthermore, the front headlamp goes with a conventional approach with a circular tail lamp. The switch gear uses a lighter shade here, but the overall fit and finish levels are expected to be of a high order.
Royal Enfield Super Meteor 650 Specs
The Royal Enfield Super Meteor 650 sources power from the same twin-cylinder 648 cc engine with a 270-degree crank that was first seen on Interceptor 650 and Continental 650. Resultantly, it is expected to sound melodious, if nothing else. Talking of power outputs, the engine belts out 47 bhp against 51 Nm. The gearbox remains a 6-speed unit. Braking duties on this cruiser will be performed by a 320 mm rotor on the front and a 300 mm rotor on the rear. The suspension uses upside-down forks on the front end, while the twin shock absorbers are fitted at the rear.
