After a debut of a very special limited edition motorcycle at Motoverse 2023 – the Shotgun 650 Motoverse Edition – Royal Enfield today debuted the production version of the Shotgun 650. A one-of-its-kind custom inspired motorcycle, the Royal Enfield Shotgun 650 will be available in four unique colorways – Stencil White, Plasma Blue, Green Drill and Sheetmetal Grey. The new Royal Enfield Shotgun 650 will be launched across global markets early next year.
Built on Royal Enfield’s globally proven 650-Twin platform, the Shotgun 650 is a tribute to the culture of customisation and a new chapter in design for Royal Enfield with an exciting vision of the future. With its retro-futuristic design the Shotgun 650 pays homage to its precursor, the SG650 Concept – showcased at EICMA 2021- and celebrates creativity, acting as a blank canvas for customization and personalisation for thousands of riders across the world.
The new Royal Enfield Shotgun 650 has all new bodywork. Its modular design enables it to switch between three modes—from single seater to double seater to luggage-carrying tourer, with ease. With the twist of a key, the pillion seat pops off, offering ultimate flexibility.
It is ergonomically optimised, with mid-set foot position, a low 795mm seat height and an intuitive handlebar position with a single seat. The Shotgun’s specially tuned suspension with 43mm dia separate function big piston Showa forks on the front. There is a twin tube 5-step preload adjust RSU at the back, 1465mm wheelbase and a low centre of gravity come together to make riding in traffic, on highways and down twisty back roads equally fun, without compromising on comfort. Wide 18” front and 17” rear tubeless tyres, combined with 320mm and 300mm disc brakes, ensure a steady grip, keeping you engaged and in control at all speeds.
An LED headlamp fitted in a gorgeous custom, neo-modern nacelle stays true to the neo-retro fusion aesthetic while offering improved visibility. The motorcycle has a digi-analogue instrument cluster, which comes equipped with the Tripper navigation system and is designed to deliver all the information you need as you head out. The Shotgun 650 also comes with the newly launched Royal Enfield Wingman – an new, in-app feature that keeps you updated on the motorcycle’s live location, fuel and engine oil levels, service reminders and more, all with the touch of a button. It also features a USB charging port to keep your devices charged on the go.
A diverse range of 31 Genuine Motorcycle Accessories are available for the Shotgun 650. Designed to further highlight the aesthetic appeal of custom culture, bar end mirrors, a sculpted solo seat and contrast-cut billet rims, to name a few, are available. Also, customization is inseparable from lifestyle and so to compliment the spirit of the Shotgun 650 a range of apparel has been developed to explore the future of the brand’s apparel.
For the Shotgun 650, Royal Enfield is partnering with American apparel manufacturer, and the world’s leading street based protective motorcycle apparel brand, ICON Motorsports. While more details will be announced later, this is the start of an exciting global collaboration between the two brands.
