The Super Meteor 650, the much-anticipated offering from the renowned motorcycle giant Royal Enfield. Here is an in-depth look at what this freshly unveiled bike has to offer.
Unveiling the Royal Enfield Super Meteor 650 Cruiser
The global reveal of the RE Super Meteor 650 Cruiser took place on November 8th at the Milan motorcycle expo, stirring up excitement among Royal Enfield enthusiasts.

A Fresh Look at the Super Meteor 650 Cruiser
The Super Meteor 650 Cruiser breaks from the usual Royal Enfield mould with a fresh and distinct design. The 241 kg bike sports unique features like circular LED headlamps, a relaxed riding stance, a traditional dual-part scalloped seat, and a teardrop-shaped fuel tank. A standout element is the cast-aluminium switch cube and the first-time inclusion of 43 mm Showa USD forks in a Royal Enfield model. The design philosophy of the Super Meteor 650 draws inspiration from the Meteor 350, lending the Meteor series its distinct identity.
Engine and Braking Aspects of the Super Meteor 650 Cruiser
The Super Meteor 650 Cruiser joins the ranks as the third offering from the brand to be powered by a 648CC parallel-twin engine, a feature also found on the Interceptor 650 and Continental GT 650. This motor churns out 48 HP and 52 Nm of torque, smoothly linked to a 6-speed gearbox.
The braking system consists of a 320 mm front disc with a two-piston calliper, coupled with a 300 mm rear disc. Safety is paramount with a standard dual-channel ABS feature. Boasting a fuel capacity of 15.7 litres, the Super Meteor 650 Cruiser is engineered for long-haul journeys.
