Royal Enfield will have 9 650cc twin-cylinder motorcycles on sale

Written by Kanad Kalasur

Royal Enfield has recently launched the Super Meteor 650. The bike uses a 650cc parallel-twin engine which is based on the new Twins Platform. The Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 was the first bike based on this platform. Now, according to a leaked document, it seems like the bike maker is planning to have nine bikes on sale, which are based on this platform.

Here are the bikes which are on sale / will be brought soon by the Indian bike maker:

Interceptor 650

Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 comes with a starting price of INR 3.23 lakh (ex-showroom India). The Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 comes with a modern-classic design and features a rounded headlamp with a halogen bulb setup, to keep the look authentic. The brand also offers a twin-pod instrument cluster as well as an elongated fuel tank.

The Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 gets a twin-cradle tubular steel frame. It has been designed by Harris Performance. The motorcycle gets the support of a 41mm conventional telescopic front fork and twin shock absorbers on the rear. The braking power comes from a single 320mm disc brake on the front and a 240mm rear disc brake.

Continental GT 650

The Royal Enfield Continental GT comes with a cafe racer design. The brand offers a rounded headlamp with chopped fenders on the front and rear. The bike gets an elongated fuel tank and a straight bench seat. Royal Enfield offers black finish rims and chrome spoke wires on the new Continental GT 650. The Royal Enfield Continental GT 650 comes with a twin-circular analogue instrument cluster and a digital MID.

Continental GT with semi-fairing

The spy images have revealed a single-seat design. The bike also gets a semi-fairing at the front. To add to its retro-appeal, it also has bar-end mirrors. The rear suspension gets a remote adjuster for the dual shock absorbers. That said, the remote adjuster could be for the purposes of fine-tuning the suspension and is unlikely to be made available with the production version.

The bike was finished in a Dux Deluxe colour. The same round headlights have been carried over, but the blinkers have been repositioned to accommodate the fairing. The semi-fairing extends right up to the fuel tank. Looks like owners can also mount a full fairing. Possibly, the fairing could be offered as part of the official accessory for the bike when launched.

Super Meteor 650 and Tourer

The 2023 Super Meteor 650 cruiser motorcycle has finally been revealed by Royal Enfield. After numerous of spy shots, teasers and more, we can finally see this new cruiser bike in all its glory. The all-new Royal Enfield Super Meteor 650 was revealed at the EICMA motorcycle show in Milan. This bike is possibly the most advanced Royal Enfield motorcycle to go on sale. Royal Enfield is positioning the Super Meteor 650 as a highway cruiser motorcycle. The bike will be available in 2 variants – Super Meteor 650 & Super Meteor 650 Tourer.

Shotgun 650

The upcoming Shotgun 650 on Indian has been spotted testing on Indian roads. The new spy shots of the latest 650cc model reveal some of its accessories.

Firstly, we get to see a pair of new dual-tone alloy wheels. These are different from any other options available on current Royal Enfields. We also get to see a blacked-out fly screen and LED turn signal indicators. The Shotgun 650 test mule also sports a large crash guard that wraps around the upper half of the engine.

Scrambler 650

The latest to join this 650cc bandwagon is the scrambler. This motorcycle was recently spied testing in India. The latest spy pictures give us a few hints of the changes to what was seen on the previous test mule.

Back when Royal Enfield’s 650cc scrambler was spotted overseas, it sported flat-tracker style side panels. But these were not present on the bike that was spotted for the first time on our shores. But interestingly, now, they have made a comeback, albeit the overall finish still looks quite rough. So we understand that this particular Royal Enfield is still some time away.

Custom 650 Scrambler

Royal Enfield also showcased a custom scrambler at the 2022 EICMA motorcycle show in Milan. This 650cc Scrambler is based on the Interceptor 650 and has quite a few noteworthy changes. Point to note, a few test bikes of such a scrambler-styled Interceptor 650 have been spotted out on the Indian streets. Possibly, such a product could debut by mid-2023 here in the Indian market. When launched, will this be called the Royal Enfield Scram 650

650cc based Himalayan / ADV

The leaked document also shows us an outline of the upcoming adventure bike. This model will be a derivative of the lead model, which is none other than the Interceptor 650. This adventure bike will have a lot of changes compared to the standard model to qualify itself as an adventure motorcycle. The bike will get wire-spoke rims. The front wheel also appears to be bigger in size than the rear. It gets a scooped seat for the rider and a tall-set handlebar. The upright stance of the bike is also very noticeable. A large wind deflector sits up at the front.
