Royal Enfield Super Meteor 650 Prices Revealed

Royal Enfield launched the new Super Meteor 650 across India and Europe, as the brand announced retail availability and price of the motorcycle. Built as two distinct variants – Super Meteor 650 and the Super Meteor 650 Tourer – and in seven distinct colourways, the new Super Meteor 650 will be available starting at INR 3,48,900/- (ex-showroom, India). Bookings across Europe begin today as well, with retails starting by mid of March 2023. With just Rs 60,000 more than the INT 650, it has all the kit that justifies the extra price. However, keep in mind, the prices have increased by 31,000 over the last 4 years since launch of the base INT 650.

RE says it has been rigorously tested on proving tracks, Belgian PAVE, and the highways, byways, towns and city centres of India, the UK and Spain, clocking up over one million kilometres in the process to ensure the most reliable and enjoyable ride.

Over the years, Royal Enfield has made exceptional contributions to the cruiser category with stylish motorcycles that have founded new, niche markets. Beginning in the mid-1950s, it was decades ahead of the cruiser genre being defined when it produced US export variants of the original Redditch Super Meteor twin, with what is today considered to be a strong cruiser profile. It then introduced cruising to India with the Citybike, Lightning 535, at the time the biggest and baddest motorcycle on India’s roads, and a succession of 350 and 500cc Thunderbirds, which garnered a large and loyal following. Global success followed in 2020 with the launch of the Meteor 350 on the brand new J-series platform. The Meteor 350 upped the tempo with new standards of finesse, quality and, most importantly, rideability.

Created at the UK Technology Centre in conjunction with Harris Performance, the frame and swingarm are entirely new and meet the design brief of a motorcycle with a low centre of gravity. Fabricated in steel with optimised forgings, investment castings, pressings and extrusions, the chassis incorporates a new cylinder head mount for additional stiffness. Royal Enfield’s first USD forks, with a 120mm stroke, and premium rear shocks with 5-step preload and 101mm travel, are seen in the new frame.

The instrument cluster has an analogue speedometer with the functionality of an LCD display for essentials such as a tachometer, gear indicator, fuel gauge, clock and trip meter. Adjustable clutch and brake levers offer a smooth operation along with a touch of retro finesse, while ergonomically designed barrel profile grips integrate the Royal Enfield logo. All-new plated aluminium switch cubes hold unique rotary switches, placing premium, chic design elements into the rider’s hands.

Then there is Turn-By-Turn navigation pod, known as the Royal Enfield Tripper. A first on any Indian-made motorcycle when introduced on the Meteor 350, this highly-focused tool, developed in collaboration with Google, links to the rider’s smartphone via Bluetooth. A discreet USB socket is located beneath the left side panel. Further attention-grabbing features on this cruiser are its LED headlamp, a first for Royal Enfield, which is carefully designed to deliver old-school charm but provide all the benefits of LED technology.

Finally, the Super Meteor’s paint finish is superlative while its distinctive tank badges, inspired by historic Royal Enfield designs, are faceted in chrome and accented with two colours of tinted infill that result in a gorgeous, jewel-like finish.

The Super Meteor 650 is available in five striking colourways: Astral Black, Astral Blue, Astral Green, Interstellar Grey and Interstellar Green. The Super Meteor 650 Tourer, which comes kitted with a touring windscreen, deluxe touring seat, pillion backrest, is available in two distinctive two-tone finishes: Celestial Red and Celestial Blue.

Like all Royal Enfield motorcycles, the Super Meteor 650 is supported by an extensive range of genuine motorcycle accessories that complement its capabilities and enhance its touring proposition in different ways. The Solo tourer themed Super Meteor has a range of bespoke accessories that make solo touring both easy and stylish. Available on the Astral and Interstellar trims, the Solo Tourer theme includes neat bar-end mirrors, bar-end finisher, front and rear LED indicators, the solo finisher kit, compact engine guard, deluxe rider foot pegs and silver finish sump guard. Available on the Celestial variant, the Grand Tourer theme additionally comes with an OE-fitted deluxe touring seat, pillion backrest and touring flyscreen. In addition, one can add more accessories from a range of GMAs, making the motorcycle a full-fledged tourer. These include, touring handlebars, touring mirrors, deluxe rider footpegs, LED fog lights, airfly evo engine guard, black sump guard and front & rear LED indicators.

All GMAs can also be ordered when booking your motorcycle through Royal Enfield’s innovative MIY, Make It Yours, personalisation programme, either online or in your local dealership at a later date. A range of gear, including Super Meteor t-shirts, helmets, bags and accessories, is also available.
