Royal Enfield Super Meteor 650 could be the next big launch from the Chennai-based bikemaker in India. The recent sighting of the model suggests it might hit roads by the end of 2022 or in early 2023. One must note that its official launch date and details are yet to be revealed. The Super Meteor 650 was recently caught on camera in its final production avatar revealing its design details.
The test mule features a retro-style round headlamp with a non-adjustable, large windshield placed above it. The bike has chromed crash guards, road-biased tyres, alloy wheels, forward footpegs, a low slung, a fatter rear fender, round taillamp and turn indicators and a twin pipe exhaust system. The previous spy images reveal that the company will offer several touring-friendly accessories with the bike.
The RE Super Meteor 650 will come with a hard case pannier placed on the left side, a flat footrest for the pillion, an engine guard with auxiliary lights, a top box on its tail rack and a tall windscreen. Similar to the RE Meteor 350, the Royal Enfield Meteor 650 will have a semi digital instrument cluster. There could be a smaller pad for the Tripper navigation.
