Royal Enfield Super Meteor 650
The Super Meteor 650 carries forward Royal Enfield’s legacy of cruiser bikes. The highway cruiser uses the 648cc twin platform. This has been rigorously tested and enjoyed worldwide recognition. The multi-award-winning Interceptor INT 650 and Continental GT 650 are a testimony of the same. The Super Meteor 650 gets the silhouette of a purebred cruiser with a low stance. The motorcycle gets a great seat with a narrow waist which combines to make munching miles a cakewalk.
In terms of specifications, Super Meteor 650 puts out 47 PS of power @ 7250 RPM and 52.3 Nm of torque @ 5650 RPM. The gearbox paired with the engine is a 6-speed unit.
Royal Enfield is using a new tubular steel chassis with a typical feet-forward cruiser riding posture for the Super Meteor. The low seat and pulled-back handlebar give a typical cruiser riding stance. The Super Meteor 650 uses 43mm USD front forks with 120mm of travel. Meanwhile, for the rear, we get twin shock absorbers that offer 101mm of travel.
