The Royal Enfield Meteor 650 will be the brand’s third 650cc model in the country. The Chennai-based bike manufacturer is rumored to be showcasing its cruiser at Rider Mania 2022 in Goa. The event is scheduled for November 18-20, 2022.
If the reports are to be believed, the company has already started training employees on the upcoming new Super Meteor 650. The official start date and details of the bike are yet to be announced. However, a launch is expected in December 2022 or January 2023.

The spy footage confirms that the new Royal Enfield 650cc motorcycle will feature a retro-style design language with round headlights, a large non-adjustable windscreen and chrome front fenders. The model comes with alloy wheels, a flatter rear fender, twin-pipe exhaust system, forward-mounted footpegs, and round direction and tail lights.

The new Royal Enfield Super Meteor 650 will have a semi-digital instrument panel with a smaller navigation pad. The device will have a silver finish. Interestingly, this will be the first RE 650cc bike to be fitted with the optional Tripper navigation accessory. Its switches, non-adjustable hand levers, and front brake master cylinder are likely inherited from the Meteor 350.
Engine-wise, the new Royal Enfield Super Meteor 650 shares its powertrain with the RE 650cc twins.
This means the bike will use a 648cc parallel-twin engine boosted by fuel-injection technology. The engine delivers a peak power of 47 hp and a torque of 52 Nm. The power transmission takes over a 6-speed gearbox, which is supplied with a slipping and auxiliary clutch.
