The new Royal Enfield Super Meteor 650 cruiser motorcycle first broke cover at the EICMA 2022, which was followed by its India debut at the Rider Mania in Goa. The bike will be made available in two variants – Standard and Tourer. Both models derive power from by a 648cc, air and oil-cooled, parallel twin engine that churns out a peak power of 47bhp at 7,250rom and 52Nm of torque at 5,650rpm. It’s the same motor that does duty in the Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 and Continental GT 650.
