Royal Enfield also showcased their new upcoming motorcycle at Rider Mania 2022. It is the Super Meteor 650 and will be launched in January with deliveries beginning in February. The Super Meteor 650 will be the new flagship motorcycle for the Chennai-based manufacturer.
The Super Meteor 650 uses the same parallel-twin, air-oil cooled engine as the Interceptor 650 and Continental GT 650.
