Built on the 650 Twin platform, the new Royal Enfield Super Meteor 650 cruiser joins the INT650 roadster and Continental GT cafe racer in the company’s 2023 lineup. We traveled to India for the global press launch to get a first ride on Royal Enfield’s latest model.
The 2023 Royal Enfield Super Meteor 650 is powered by an air/oil-cooled 648cc parallel-Twin that makes a claimed 48 hp and 39 lb-ft of torque. It has styling that leans more British classic than American traditional. Chrome is found only on the dual exhausts and mirrors, while most other finishes are black or satin silver. It’s available in standard trim as well as with Solo Tourer and Grand Tourer accessory packages.
