New Royal Enfield Super Meteor 650 spotted in clearest images yet
Royal Enfield is gearing up to expand its 650 cc line-up further with more products. While it has already showcased the SG650 or Shotgun 650 concept at the previous EICMA 2021 show, images of a new 650 cc Royal Enfield prototype have now started surfacing on the internet. While there is no confirmation as to which model this might be, it is most likely the Super Meteor 650. There is also a theory that it may be the Classic 650, but no concrete information is available as of yet.

The spotted prototype sports some elements that hint towards it being the bigger version of the existing Meteor 350. Its circular tail lamp looks directly derived from the Meteor, while the front headlamp is a reflection of the Classic 350. Looking closely reveals that there is a completely new shape on the instrument panel, indicating the use of a new unit.
Easy to see, the overall riding stance has been kept fairly upright with a long and extended handlebar and mid-set footpegs. Also, the bike can be seen getting tested with accessories such as hard case panniers and a top box.

At the heart of the bike will unquestionably sit the same 650cc, parallel-twin engine found on the Interceptor INT 650/Continental GT 650. However, expect the engine to be tuned slightly differently to match its distinctive character.

In terms of launch, expect the bike to make its public appearance sometime by mid-2023, followed by its launch later next year.
Meanwhile, Royal Enfield is gearing up for the launch of Scram 411 in India. Our sources suggest that the bike was slated for launch this month, but the ongoing wave of Covid-19 forced the Chennai-based bike maker to delay the product launch to March'21.
