Royal Enfield Shotgun 650 is expected to launch in India in May 2024 in the expected price range of ₹ 3,00,000 to ₹ 3,50,000. Currently available bikes which are similar to Shotgun 650 are Royal Enfield Interceptor 650, Royal Enfield Super Meteor 650 & Keeway K-Light 250V. Another bike similar to Shotgun 650 is BSA Gold Star which is launching in December 2024 in India.
Royal Enfield unveiled the all-new SG650 Twin concept motorcycle at the 2021 EICMA show in Milan. While the company has not mentioned it yet, we know that SG stands for Shotgun and this concept will most likely act as the base platform for Royal Enfield’s upcoming bobber-styled motorcycle.
The design elements on the concept motorcycle comprise a single floating-style seat, a short tubular handlebar, chopped front and rear fender, bar-end mirrors, and chunky tyres. The styling cues further include a retro-styled polished aluminium finish to the front end and digital graphics like new-age motorcycles on the fuel tank. The 650cc, parallel-twin engine, too, is adorned with digital graphics.
The concept motorcycle also featured a CNC billet machine fuel tank, wheels made out of a solid aluminium block with integrated ABS, dual disc brakes at the front, upside-down front forks, and hand-stitched black leather seat. However, the final production model will be a much more toned-down version.
The details about the mechanical specifications aren’t available yet, although we expect the numbers to be similar to the Interceptor INT 650 and the Continental GT 650. The 648cc, parallel-twin engine on the Interceptor INT 650 and the Continental GT 650 makes 47bhp at 7,250rpm and 52Nm of peak torque at 5,250rpm.
