Motor Vikatan – 01 December 2022 – Harley Design; tubeless tire; USD fork of the bowl; Coming for a long ride, the next Metiyar!

Meteor means… a meteor or shooting star from the sky. While the Meteor is already 350cc, while putting the chuck in place, Royal Enfield has fitted the same Meteor with a 650cc engine and brought a bigger Meteor. At the EICMA 2022 Auto Expo in Milan, Italy, Royal Enfield upgraded it to its international market level and introduced it. RE has unveiled to our India on November 18.

Let’s take a look at some important features of Royal Enfield’s Meteor 650 that everyone is looking forward to.

RE’s third bike at 650 cc!

This super meteorite is Royal Enfield’s 3rd bike with a 648cc, parallel twin cylinder engine setup. Continental GT 650 and Interceptor bikes – those first two bikes. The Meteor makes 47bhp of power at 7,250rpm and 52Nm of torque at 5,650rpm. According to Royal Enfield, it has been tuned to deliver around 80% of its peak torque at 2,500rpm through bespoke mapping and gearing set-up.

Harley Davidson Design!

They were already calling the Miataar 350 a small Harley. Now just like the original Harley Davidson bike… in a stunning superbike design… this cruiser bike blends in. Some even say it looks like a Triumph.

RE’s First USD Fork Bike!

This is the first Royal Enfield bike to have an upside down fork suspension setup. It has a Showa 43mm thick fork at the front. Likewise, the teardrop-shaped petrol tank has a capacity of 15.7 litres.

The first RE bike with LED headlights!

The LED headlights are new! The bike with full LED headlights in this segment is the Super Meteor 650cc.

Stylish tubeless alloy wheels!

It has 19-inch wheels at the front and 16-inch wheels at the rear. Like the Meteor 350, they have given an alloy setup here. It has Seat Zoom Cruz tires. Tube tires like Continental and Interceptor bikes are prone to punctures. Since this Meteor is tubeless, there is no need to fear a puncture.

Dual channel met!

The Meteor 650 has disc options on both sides. Front 320 mm disc; 300 mm disc brakes at the rear are impressive. The reason is that the dual channel ABS bike comes with Meteor 650. These large brake sizes have been designed to give a solid performance for the weight of this cruiser bike.

This is the heaviest bullet!

This is going to be Royal Enfield’s heaviest bullet. Its weight is 241 kg. Its ground clearance is 135 mm. It cannot be said that it is generous for our road conditions. But, enough will be enough.

Easy to enter and leave the city!

In general, the exhaust pipes of Royal Enfield bikes are very wide. Since the silencer on this Meteor doesn’t clog up the space… it’s possible to get in and out of small alleys and traffic without crashing the bike.

Split Seats; The riding position is superb; Height gummi!

They have given split seats in this. Being a cruiser bike, the wide handlebar and forward foot pegs make the riding position fun for long rides in cruiser style. Its seat height is only 740 mm, making it easy to ride even for short people. But be aware that the weight is high! Its indicators are placed near the number plate.

Interceptor, facilities not available in Continental!

The bike has a conventional circular center console. It features a tripper navigation pod, full LED headlights, cast aluminum switch cubes, tubeless tires, alloy wheels, which are not found in other 650 cc bikes.

Variant and Price

The Super Meteor 650 comes in two variants. The Standard variant is the base model. The Tourer variant is the more expensive top end. It comes in Astral, Interstellar and Celestial Colourways. There are 2 tourer models in the Tourer model, the Solo Tourer with a single seat and the Grand Tourer with a split seat. It also has an exclusive accessories option for Royal Enfield. The Super Meteor 650 also comes with a billion backrest, handlebar end mirrors, luggage rack, deluxe foot pegs and a large windscreen over the top-end Grand Tourer. Price unknown; But it can cost around 3.75 – 4 lakhs.

Competition with what?

For now, this super meteor has little competition. Priced a little higher than other Royal Enfield 650cc bikes, it competes with the Benelli 502C. This Royal Enfield Meteor has an easy chance of winning against the Benelli for a more expensive modern bike.
