The Royal Enfield Super Meteor 650 is the third model in the 650 Twins platform.

The Royal Enfield Meteor 650 boasts of a quintessential retro cruiser design with an upright riding position, a tear-drop shaped fuel tank, a chunky fender for the rear tyre, circular LED headlight (a first for any RE motorcycle), a round taillight, an old-school two-piece scalloped seat with no grabrails and twin-exhaust setup which is prominently positioned.

The Royal Enfield Meteor 650 builds up on the Meteor 350’s design and looks quite like an elder sibling to smaller cruiser. The Royal Enfield badging on the fuel tank has a new design and finish as well and the cast-aluminium switch cubes, (again a first for any RE motorcycle), is one of the highlights adding to its premium appeal.

The Super Meteor 650 is built on the same platform as the 650 twins but employs a new tubular steel frame for a more comfortable and a relaxed riding position. The motorcycle is powered by the same 648 cc parallel-twin oil/air cooled engine mated to a six-speed gearbox. The engine belts out 47 bhp at 7,250 rpm and peak torque output of 52.3 Nm at 5,650 rpm which is similar to what the parallel-twin engine delivers in the Interceptor 650 and Continental GT 650.
