Royal Enfield has announced the Super Meteor 650, as an expansion of both its cruiser range and 650 platform. 

The Meteor range was launched by Royal Enfield in 2018 with the launch of the Meteor 350 as the brand’s first modern cruiser. 

While the 350 has been successful, similarly so has been the 650 platform with the Royal Enfield Continental GT and Royal Enfield Interceptor making use of the 650cc twin-cylinder engine. 

Royal Enfield has now taken that 650 platform and applied to the Meteor, resulting in the Super Meteor 650. 

This is not simply an engine swap for the Meteor 350, or a new aesthetic for either of the existing 650s. Instead, the main frame, suspension geometry, tank, side panels, swingarm are all new, and there is a full-LED headlight for the first time. Additionally, the Super Meteor will be the first Royal Enfield to use upside-down forks.

Ergonomically, the traditional cruiser riding position is maintained in-line with Royal Enfield’s own traditional sloped triangle design, and up front the rider will find themselves with a ‘digi-analogue’ instrument cluster and tripper navigation in front of them. Additionally, the switch cubes are cast aluminium.

The Super Meteor 650 will be available in two different variants: standard, and Tourer. The Tourer features a range of accessories including side boxes, a large touring screen, an engine guard, and a backrest for the pillion seat. 

The Royal Enfield Super Meteor 650 is expected to arrive in European dealers from spring 2023, and will be available in six colours, three of which have been revealed: Insterstellar Green, Celestial Red, and Astral Black.
