- Royal Enfield Super Meteor spied
- Looks ready for production
- Likely to be launched in April-June quarter
Royal Enfield is preparing to launch multiple new motorcycles based on its 650cc platform. One of the highly anticipated offerings amongst these is the Super Meteor 650 cruiser that has been spotted undergoing road tests once again.
With each consecutive spy shot, the Super Meteor’s test mule seems to be getting closer to production and the recently-spied one is no different. From the blacked-out engine casing to the chrome-finished exhaust canister, every component appears to be in finished form. Typical of a cruiser, the rider can be seen sitting in quite a laid-back, touring-friendly posture. The motorcycle sports a pulled-back handlebar, forward-set footpegs, and a roomy split-type seat.
Interestingly, the Super Meteor 650 is likely to be the first Royal Enfield offering to feature upside-down forks front, unlike conventional telescopic units in the existing models. The 648cc, parallel-twin engine, though, will be retained from the Interceptor 650 and Continental GT 650. However, the state of tune might be slightly different. Similar to the existing Meteor 350, the Super Meteor could also get RE’s Tripper navigation system.
