Royal Enfield Introduces All-New Super Meteor 650 at EICMA
The new Royal Enfield Super Meteor 650 is cruising at its purest.
Milwaukee, WI (Wednesday, November 9, 2022) – Royal Enfield, the global leader in the midsize (250cc – 750cc) motorcycling segment, today unveiled the new Super Meteor 650, injecting a new level of character, style and accessibility into the mid-sized cruiser market.
The Super Meteor 650 continues Royal Enfield’s heritage of building superlative midsize motorcycles. It is centered around the acclaimed 648cc twin platform that’s been rigorously tested, and since 2018, enjoyed worldwide recognition within the award-winning INT650 and Continental GT 650. The Super Meteor 650 features an all-new chassis developed for comfort and a long, effortless glide down long highways.
Commenting on Royal Enfield’s cruiser lineage and approach to building motorcycles, Siddhartha Lal, Managing Director of Eicher Motors Ltd. said, “We have always had a differentiated approach to building motorcycles and our new cruiser, the Super Meteor 650, is the next evolution of this approach. Inspired by our own long-distance riding experiences and those of our customers, we have built the Super Meteor to be absolutely enjoyable to all senses. The engine is super refined and responsive and offers relaxed part-throttle experience at highway-plus speeds, the riding ergonomics are fine-tuned to offer a leisurely, yet in-control riding experience, and the overall premium fit and finish of parts and materials evoke visual and sensory delight. The gorgeous silhouette and contours of the Super Meteor have been inspired by generations of cruisers from Royal Enfield, and are at the same time, familiar, yet absolutely distinct.”
Created in conjunction with Harris Performance, the all-new chassis provides a low center of gravity for high-speed stability and easy maneuverability that is confidence inspiring for all levels of rider. USD forks, LED headlamps, a state-of-the-art TBT navigation system, redesigned engine covers and a premium fit and finish are just some of the many attention-grabbing features.
The Super Meteor 650 is the solo tourer variant and will be available in five colorways: Astral Black, Astral Blue, Astral Green, Interstellar Grey and Interstellar Green. The Super Meteor 650 Tourer is the grand tourer variant and will be available in two colorways: Celestial Red and Celestial Blue.
The Super Meteor 650 is supported by an extensive ecosystem of Genuine Motorcycle Accessories that accentuate its touring capabilities. Of the three motorcycles unveiled at EICMA, the Astral Black Super Meteor 650 is equipped with Solo Tourer Genuine Motorcycle Accessories kit, including bar-end mirrors, deluxe footpegs, solo finisher, LED indicators and machined wheels. The Celestial Red Super Meteor 650 Tourer is equipped with the Grand Tourer accessories kit including the deluxe touring dual-seat, touring windscreen, passenger backrest, deluxe footpegs, long-haul panniers, touring handlebar and LED indicators.
