Royal Enfield Shotgun 650 is a cruiser bike available in 3 variants and 4 colours. The Royal Enfield Shotgun 650 is powered by 648cc BS6 engine which develops a power of 46.39 bhp and a torque of 52.3 Nm. With both front and rear disc brakes, Royal Enfield Shotgun 650 comes up with anti-locking braking system. This Shotgun 650 bike weighs 240 kg and has a fuel tank capacity of 13.8 liters.

The Royal Enfield Shotgun 650 was launched at a price range of Rs. 3.59 lakh to Rs. 3.73 lakh, ex-showroom. The bike is available in three variants and four colour options.


The Royal Enfield Shotgun 650 is a factory custom motorcycle that takes inspiration from the rich and varied community of custom motorcycle builders. The three variants that the Shotgun 650 is available in are - Custom Shed, Custom Pro, and Custom Special.


The Shotgun 650 is offered in four paint schemes – Green Drill, Stencil White, Sheet Metal Grey, and Plasma Blue. Being a Bobber-style motorcycle, it is sold as a single-seater in its stock form, but the company will also offer an accessory pillion seat, which can be converted into a luggage rack, simply by removing it.


The Royal Enfield Shotgun 650 is powered by a 648cc, parallel-twin motor that pumps out 46.40bhp at 7,250rpm and a peak torque of 52.3Nm at 5,650rpm. The oil-cooled engine is paired to a six-speed gearbox, with a slipper clutch.


Coming to its cycle parts, the Shotgun 650 has alloy wheels at both ends, shod with a 100/90-18 cross-ply tyre at the front and a 150/70 R17 radial tyre at the rear. Braking duties are taken care of by a 320mm disc up front and a 300mm disc at the rear. Dual-channel ABS comes as standard.


The suspension tasks will be handled by a Showa separate function, big piston USD fork up front, and Showa twin spring shocks at the back. The Shotgun 650 gets a suspension travel of 120mm at the front and 90mm at the back. Further, it comes with a fuel tank capacity of 13.8 litres and has a kerb weight of 240kg.


The design of the Shotgun 650 is attractive with the fuel tank, side panels, and fenders, along with the low-slung stance of the bike adding to its visual appeal.


While the bike doesn’t have any direct competition, since there is no Bobber-style bike at this price point, the other 650cc option that you can look at is the Royal Enfield Super Meteor 650.

Royal Enfield Shotgun 650 Expert Opinion

A little over a year ago, Royal Enfield expanded its 650cc line-up with the Super Meteor 650, which is a proper cruiser and also their most expensive bike to date. This bike has managed to cater to a set of buyers who have been wanting to go cruising but didn’t want to spend more than a million rupees. Now, it’s early 2024 and Royal Enfield has once again got us another 650cc motorcycle – the Shotgun 650 – and it is a Bobber. Now, I know you will say that it looks similar to the Super Meteor 650, and you are right

Introduction

Royal Enfield Shotgun 650 Right Side View

A little over a year ago, Royal Enfield expanded its 650cc line-up with the Super Meteor 650, which is a proper cruiser and also their most expensive bike to date. This bike has managed to cater to a set of buyers who have been wanting to go cruising but didn’t want to spend more than a million rupees. Now, it’s early 2024 and Royal Enfield has once again got us another 650cc motorcycle – the Shotgun 650 – and it is a Bobber. Now, I know you will say that it looks similar to the Super Meteor 650, and you are right. However, the Shotgun is a motorcycle that is purely positioned as an urban motorcycle. 

Our editor, Vikrant, has already ridden and tested this bike in Los Angeles, US, and that review is already live. In this review, we will be digging a little deeper and trying to find things that work in Indian conditions, and also things that don’t.

Styling & Quality

Royal Enfield Shotgun 650 Front View

Over the last few years, Royal Enfield has managed to make their motorcycles look extremely aspirational and drool-worthy. It has achieved this again with the Shotgun 650, thanks to the funky colour schemes. There are a lot of ‘custom’ words used to position this bike. While the bike has no relation to the actual custom motorcycle, it does get colours that represent the custom workshop market. 

Royal Enfield Shotgun 650 Front View

The Shotgun 650 is a single-seat motorcycle. This is why it gets a large rear fender, and just in front of it, a wide seat has been provided. The rest of the bits have been borrowed from the Super Meteor, including the quality aspect, which is quite well-finished.

Ergonomics & Comfort

Royal Enfield Shotgun 650 Left Side View

The Shotgun is primarily a single-seat bike but our test bike had a pillion seat because we asked for it. A majority of the Indians need to own a bike that can transport people easily and RE knows that. So while the brand may position this as a Bobber, it knows that there’s a good revenue increase if it sells the pillion seat as an accessory. 

Royal Enfield Shotgun 650 Bike Seat

Now, coming to the seating comfort, as you can see, the overall seating triangle is far more upright than the Super Meteor and it is supposed to be so because this is an urban bike. The handlebar is flat and not too narrow. The pegs are not entirely centre-set, but they also aren’t too far up ahead like the SM. However, this triangle allows me to have a super easy stance and to be honest, it reminds me of the seating comfort of the Classic 350. It may sound a bit controversial, but this is how the seating triangle will feel when RE makes a Classic 650 and launches one in 2026. 

Royal Enfield Shotgun 650 Pillion Seat

While doing the pillion test, getting on and off the bike was super easy. The pillion also had decent space. Even the comfort aspect of the cushioning was well taken care of. However, the seating triangle for the pillion felt unnatural even for shorter passengers.

Performance & Handling

Royal Enfield Shotgun 650 Front View

Now, most of us know that the Super Meteor is a great motorcycle to own and ride. But there is one aspect that bothered many, and trust me, it bothered us too, and that was the ride quality. But with the Shotgun, is it any different, considering the fact that it is built on the same SM platform? Well, the answer is yes. The Shotgun has a better ride quality than the SM and this has been achieved by having a different spring rate for the suspension at the back. Plus, the rebound on the bike is much slower, and that allowed for a much softer ride setup. You also need to know that the seating mounting points on the Shotgun are different compared to the SM and as a result of that, you get to sit at a spot where the rebound damping feels the best. 

Royal Enfield Shotgun 650 Front View

In fact, the Shotgun doesn’t ride better than just the SM, but also the Interceptor. I own a 2022 INT and know how to deal with the ride, but the Shotgun scores big points here. Yes, it doesn’t churn out the best ride, but when compared with the RE 650cc family, it is the best. 

Royal Enfield Shotgun 650 Right Side View

Can the Shotgun become the best multicylinder motorcycle for Indian city conditions? Well, almost. There are a few things that work in Shotgun’s favour. Firstly, that upright riding angle is exactly what motorcyclists need if only urban riding is involved. Even though the rider will need to stretch a bit more than usual to reach the handlebar, that seating triangle is quite good. Such a triangle also allows for a commanding riding position – something that makes life easy in a city like Mumbai.

The one thing I liked the most about this bike in the city, is that the motorcycle blends in easily with the city traffic when you are doing 50-70kmph. You won’t feel the weight, nor will you have any issues steering the motorcycle. However, while riding at 20-30kmph, the front feels a bit weird. It takes some effort to point the motorcycle at the right place. While the footpegs are placed perfectly for riding conditions, they play a big spoilsport when moving the motorcycle – be it at the parking or trying to get the bike out of a congested spot.

Features & Technology

Royal Enfield Shotgun 650 Instrument Cluster

The Shotgun 650 is equipped with a semi-analogue/digital cluster along with tripper navigation. The suspension setup is from Showa – the front gets USD forks and at the rear, there are twin shocks with five-step preload adjust. The levers are adjustable and the headlight gets LED treatment. USB charging and dual-channel ABS come as standard. 

Fuel Efficiency

Royal Enfield Shotgun 650 Rear View

Be it a scooter or a big multi-cylinder bike – we like to know the mileage of any motor vehicle. We put the Shotgun 650 to our city test and it returned 24kmpl. That means, with a fuel tank capacity of around 14 litres, the bike can ridden easily for 250km. On the highways, well, the number could change based on the average speed, acceleration behaviour, and also the amount of luggage on the bike.

Should you buy it?

Royal Enfield Shotgun 650 Front View

I had the Shotgun for around two days and rode the bike for close to 200km. One thing is clear –the Shotgun 650 is a good city bike and I think that is what RE also wanted. Now, the Interceptor is quite old and it has its fair share of positives and negatives, and the Super Meteor makes sense only if you are spending a lot of time on the highway, where you don’t have to deal with poor city road conditions. The Continental GT, on the other hand, is quite sporty, and as a result of that, it doesn’t entice the Indian audience. 

You should choose the SG if you are in the market for a multi-cylinder motorcycle that looks pretty good, has good performance, is easy to live with daily, and also has a decent ride quality. I have to tell you this, the Shotgun 650 is far more comfortable than any of the other RE 650s in the city.

      the rides are quite comfortable
      the modifications look a little off with this bike.

      Royal Enfield Shotgun 650 - The sensible Super Bike Just Looking like wow with ShotGun

      Anita Kanwar

      Royal Enfield Shotgun 650 The designers have made the 42 bobbers and Perak look really dashing. The 650cc twin is a beautiful engine. To be honest, the Shotgun 650 is probably the most fun twin and best twin in my opinion. You cannot complain about riding posture; It is a cafe racer. A Super Meteor with midset footpegs would be the perfect bike for me.

      Nice when compare to another bikes The Royal Enfield Shotgun 650 burst onto the scene as a surprise unveiling at the 2023 Motoverse / Rider Mania event in Goa, capturing the attention of motorcycle enthusiasts worldwide. Positioned as a sportier take on the Super Meteor 650, the Shotgun promises an invigorating riding experience while retaining its cruiser DNA. Royal Enfield chose Los Angeles as the destination for us to try out this motorcycle - not only because America loves the quintessential bouquet of cruisers, but also because Los Angeles and the fabled "sunny California" have some of the best riding roads. Is that a bit much for a cruiser derivative? We will delve into that in a bit.
      That said, I don't like to approach a new vehicle with any preconceived notions - but the utterly stiff suspension of the Super Meteor had me convinced that RE wanted to take our attention away from the firm ride by offering us the Shotgun on the smooth and arguably flawless American highways. So let us begin by addressing that elephant in the room.
      Ride Quality
      The Super Meteor 650, while a formidable cruiser, has faced criticism for its stiff ride quality, a common concern in the cruiser segment given the low suspension travel especially at the rear. Royal Enfield took this feedback seriously when crafting the Shotgun 650. It's evident the moment you see the increased height of the rear fender. This seemingly subtle modification liberates an additional 8-9mm of wheel and suspension travel, addressing the most significant pain points of its donor.
      Venturing onto the roads of America, a pivotal market for Royal Enfield's 650 range, we experienced firsthand the impact of this alteration. Riding on some of the relatively rough terrains showcase a noticeable improvement in ride comfort. Though not as plush as the Classic, the Shotgun handles undulating surfaces with greater finesse, promising a more forgiving ride even on the pothole-ridden roads typical of every day commutes.
      It's important to note that the enhanced suspension setup of the Shotgun isn't a plug-and-play solution for existing Super Meteor owners, given the low fender height and the difference in wheel sizes.
      Different Ergonomics
      While the Shotgun retains the suspension mounting points, chassis, and engine from the Super Meteor, Royal Enfield has significantly changed the ergonomics changes to infuse that sportier character. Lower handlebars, an 18-inch front wheel, a 17-inch rear wheel, dropped front forks, increased rear suspension, and a nuanced adjustment to the rake angle collectively redefine the riding posture to a more aggressive and forward biased stance.
      The mid-mounted foot pegs not only pay homage to Royal Enfield's heritage with a classic 90-degree knee angle but also contribute to the different riding style that sets the Shotgun apart from its stablemates. Riding through the winding roads near Mulholland and the Angeles crest, the more aggressive posture translated into an engaging and dynamic riding experience. The Shotgun immediately feels sharper than the Super Meteor 650 but it's crucial to highlight that there remains a perceptible disconnect between the front and rear suspension. The rear feels noticeably softer than the front and on sudden direction changes or switchbacks, the motorcycle seems too flexible. It isn't unnerving though and once you get the hang of it, the Shotgun becomes a hoot to ride.
      It feels more responsive to rider inputs, offering a sense of connection with the road that enthusiasts crave. You can lean on the front end a lot more and the front end feel and confidence is of a higher degree than any of its 650 siblings - and that says a lot about the handling package of the Shotgun. So much so that I'm now yearning for Royal Enfield to use this magic potion on the Continental GT, which will now feel lethargic in comparison to the Shotgun's quick turn-ins.
