Royal Enfield Super Meteor 650


Royal Enfield have an action-packed year ahead, with the roll-out of no less than four new models on the cards. These will include re-introducti­on of the Bullet 350 based on the new Classic 350 platform, the Scram 411 which is essentiall­y a strippeddo­wn Himalayan, the radical retro Shotgun 650, and the Super Meteor 650.

A recent promotiona­l video offered us a glimpse of the Super Meteor 650 and it looks rather… err… super. The bike sported a wide handlebar, oldschool grips, a single-pod instrument console, a Royal Enfield Tripper navigation display, and probably even an upside-down fork, which will be a first from the manufactur­er.

Expect plenty of bling, chrome, and brushed metal finish right from the exhaust, headlamp brackets, and bezel and on the instrument pods. Propelling this middleweig­ht cruiser will be the trusted 648-cc parallel-twin that makes 47.5 hp and 52 Nm. Prices should be in the range of Rs 3-3.5 lakh and the launch is expected by mid-2022.
