Pricing announced for Royal Enfield Super Meteor 650

Pricing for the Royal Enfield Super Meteor 650 has been confirmed by the Indian manufacturer, with prices beginning at £6,799. 

Royal Enfield announced the new Super Meteor 650 last year at the EICMA show in Milan as an expansion of both the Meteor range and the brand’s 650cc platform. 

The Royal Enfield Super Meteor 650 now has its pricing confirmed. For the base ‘Astral’ version, the price will be £6,799 in the UK; for the mid-range ‘Interstellar’ Royal Enfield is asking £6,999; and for the top-line ‘Celestial’ variant prices start at £7,299.

There are also five colour options for the Super Meteor 650: “Astral Black”, “Astral Blue”, “Astral Green”, “Interstellar Grey”, and “Interstellar Green”.

Additionally, there is the Royal Enfield Super Meteor 650 Tourer, which is essentially the ‘Celestial’ variant, featuring a touring screen and seat, and a pillion backrest. The Tourer variant is available in the colours “Celestial Red”, and “Celestial Blue”.

Royal Enfield CEO, B Govindarajan, said: “We have focused not just on building great motorcycles, but reimagining propositions that transcend traditional motorcycling segments. 

“The Royal Enfield Meteor 350 that replaced the Thunderbird in our portfolio did just that, as it made cruising easy for riders across the globe, and became one of our highest selling motorcycles in Europe and other parts of the world. The Super Meteor 650 breathes new life into the cruising segment, and creates its own identity as an authentic, accessible, mid-segment cruiser.” 

Siddhartha Lal, Managing Director of Eicher Motors Ltd. said: “The Super Meteor 650 is an evolution of all our focus and efforts in the middleweight segment over the years, and is a thoroughbred, retro cruiser in every sense. Its design language, geometry, form-factor and the gorgeous 650cc twin engine make it the most stunning, accessible and capable cruiser in the category. 

“We’ve enhanced the refinement levels of this motorcycle, and you can feel it in its smooth throttle response across the range. The motorcycle has confidence inspiring stability, takes corners well and feels planted at highway speeds. It is a perfect mid-segment motorcycle that may actually interest even people who are not interested in cruisers. 

“We believe the Super Meteor will expand the market for cruisers around the world and take the Royal Enfield twin platform a notch higher.” 

Royal Enfield has brought some new features to the Super Meteor 650 which make it a ‘first’ for the brand in a number of aspects. For example, the USD forks and LED headlamp are both firsts for the Indian manufacturer.

The Royal Enfield Super Meteor 650 also features turn-by-turn navigation via the Royal Enfield Tripper, an instrument cluster combining analogue and digital, five-step adjustable preload on the rear shocks, and the same 648cc twin-cylinder engine as found in the Continental GT and Interceptor motorcycles.
