Royal Enfield Super Meteor spied on

Royal Enfield is preparing to launch multiple new motorcycles based on its 650cc platform. One of the highly anticipated offerings of this is the Super Meteor 650 cruiser which has been spotted again in on-road testing.

With each successive spy shot, the Super Meteor’s test mule seems to be getting closer to production, and the recently spied on is no different. From the darkened engine housing to the chrome exhaust canister, every part appears to be in finished form. Typically for a cruiser, the rider can be seen in a fairly relaxed, tour-friendly attitude. The bike has retracted handlebars, forward-positioned footpegs and a generously split seat.

Interestingly, the Super Meteor 650 is likely to be the first Royal Enfield offering to feature an upside-down front fork, as opposed to conventional telescoping units in the existing models. However, the 648cc, parallel-twin engine will be retained from the Interceptor 650 and Continental GT 650. However, the state of tuning may be slightly different. Like the existing Meteor 350, the Super Meteor could also get RE’s Tripper navigation system.

Price-wise, the Super Meteor 650 will sit above the Interceptor and Continental GT and compete against the Kawasaki Vulcan S and Benelli 502C.
