Royal Enfield Shotgun 650 has made its global debut after making its first appearance at Motoverse 2023. The Shotgun 650 shares some of its underpinnings with the Super Meteor 650. However, there are a few changes that Royal Enfield has made. Royal Enfield is expected to launch the Shotgun 650 early next year and it will be positioned between the Continental GT 650 and the Super Meteor 650.

Royal Enfield will offer the Shotgun 650 in four unique colourways - Stencil White, Plasma Blue, Green Drill and Sheetmetal Grey. The motorcycle will use an 18-inch front and a 17-inch rear setup and there will be alloy wheels with tubeless tyres from the factory. Royal Enfield will sell a diamond-cut version of the alloy wheels as an official accessory.

Powering the Shotgun 650 will be the same engine that is doing duty on other 650 cc motorcycles. It is a 648 cc parallel-twin, air-oil cooled engine that produces 47 bhp and 52 Nm on other 650 cc motorcycles. It comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox with slip and assist clutch. So, there is a possibility that Royal Enfield will retune the engine on Shotgun 650 for its weight and characteristics.
