3 RE 650cc Bikes Spied On Test Together – Key Differences


Royal Enfield is planning to launch as many as three 650 cc motorcycles in the near future and here we have explained their key differences

Royal Enfield has been testing a range of new 650 cc motorcycles for the domestic as well as international markets. It is also developing a liquid-cooled Himalayan and next-generation Bullet 350.

The Chennai-based manufacturer has endured tremendous success with the Interceptor 650 and Continental GT 650 and its latest range of offerings are well received amongst customers in the global markets as well. Thus, the upcoming 650 cc series with each motorcycle carrying different styling and approach to consumers, will play a significant role in its global aspirations.

Judging by the latest spy pictures, Royal Enfield looks to be working on a cruiser, a roadster and a bobber based on the existing 650 Twins’ platform and thus economies of scale can be achieved with mass production. The cruiser-styled motorcycle could be dubbed the Super Meteor 650 and it has a typical low-slung seat, forward set footpegs and tall handlebar setup.


It could be the first one to be launched later this year or in early 2023 as it was caught in a production-ready state. The Shotgun Bobber 650 with an exposed rear end typical of a bobber could be introduced next year based on the SG 650 concept and it debuted at the 2021 EICMA show in Italy. It is expected to be sold in single- and dual-seater versions.

The dual-seater variant falls along the lines of the Classic 350 in terms of styling and it looks almost similar to the single-seater. The Royal Enfield Roadster 650 has plenty in common with the Shotgun and Classic 650 and the spy shots show the presence of different alloy wheels, taller windscreen, differently positioned footpegs, larger fuel tank and so on.

A host of accessories will also be provided with them and expect these motorcycles to be positioned above the existing 650 Twins. All these models will boast a semi-digital cluster with Tripper Navigation, upside-down front forks, a 648 cc parallel-twin engine, slipper clutch, dual ABS, etc.
