2024 Royal Enfield Super Meteor 650: TIMELESS EXHILARATION.

Introducing the 2024 Royal Enfield Super Meteor 650…

The Super Meteor 650 brings a new level of character, style, and accessibility to the cruiser category, set to redefine the essence of cruising freedom in America. Designed with styling inspired by vintage Royal Enfield models, the motorcycle is built around the brand’s highly-acclaimed 648cc parallel twin engine.

The Super Meteor 650 touts an archetype retro cruiser silhouette with a meaty 16-inch rear wheel and 19-inch front. With its striking, sloping lines that lead from the fuel tank to the low-slung seat, then back up to the passenger seat over the rear fender, the bike stands out while standing still. Built on a tubular steel frame that is visible throughout, the cruiser’s appeal is as exhilarating as it is timeless.

Royal Enfield has introduced the Super Meteor 650 to the North American market. Already an international motorcycling success story, the Super Meteor 650 is Royal Enfield’s highly anticipated arrival as the brand’s first proper cruiser to roll on American highways and byways.

The Super Meteor 650 is powered by the venerable 648cc fuel-injected, air/oil-cooled, twin-cylinder engine found on the popular INT 650 and Continental GT 650 Royal Enfield models. Capable of producing strong, low-end grunt and top-end cruising fun, the engine’s smooth power delivery provides an exciting and lively throttle response up and down the gearbox and through every twist and turn.

“The Super Meteor 650 punches above its class in the middleweight cruiser segment,” says Yadvinder Singh Guleria, Chief Commercial Officer for Royal Enfield. “This motorcycle is an evolution of all our focus and efforts in the segment, and is a thoroughbred, retro cruiser in every sense.”

Royal Enfield’s Chief of Design, Mark Wells said, “The bike has confidence-inspiring stability, corners exquisitely, and feels planted at highway speeds. It is the ideal mid-segment bike that will not only turn heads, but put many more enthusiasts out on the roads to find the kind of enjoyment that pure cruising from Royal Enfield can offer.”

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 center of gravity for high-speed stability and easy maneuverability that is confidence-inspiring for all levels of rider. Fabricated in steel with optimized forgings, investment castings, pressings, and extrusions, the chassis incorporates a new cylinder head mount for additional stiffness. Royal Enfield’s first upside down (USD) forks, with a 120mm stroke and premium rear shocks with 5-step preload and 101mm travel, perfectly complement the new frame, ensuring the Super Meteor is stable and rewarding to ride on highways and precise and engaging through the curves without being heavy to steer. The USD forks allow the motorcycle to maintain a controlled response throughout the range of suspension travel, and the big piston damping technology allows for a plush and planted ride.

The rider’s view and controls have received particular focus to ensure that the design, fit, and finish are class-leading. Its instrument cluster combines the timeless elegance of an analog speedometer with the functionality of an LCD for essentials such as revs, gear indicator, fuel gauge, clock, and trip meter.

Adjustable clutch and brake levers offer a smooth operation and a touch of retro finesse, while ergonomically designed barrel profile hand grips integrate the Royal Enfield logo. All-new plated aluminum switch cubes hold unique rotary switches, placing premium, chic design elements into the rider’s hands. Then there is Royal Enfield’s celebrated TBT (Turn-By-Turn) navigation pod, 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. It is carefully designed to deliver old-school charm but provides all the benefits of LED technology.

Available in three variants, Royal Enfield also offers the Super Meteor seven unique color options. The Astral and Interstellar variants focus on the cruising needs of the solo rider. Astral Green, Astral Black and Astral Blue deliver a simple yet unique color offering. The Interstellar variant offers a more premium, two-tone finish and is available in Interstellar Grey and Interstellar Green. The Celestial variant focuses more heavily on the touring rider, offering an OE-fitted deluxe touring seat, pillion backrest, and touring flyscreen, and is available in 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 together complete a theme based on the rider’s preferences. These have been developed alongside the motorcycle to ensure a perfect fit. Rigorously tested in the field, Royal Enfield Genuine Motorcycle Accessories offer exceptional quality and a 3 year warranty that matches the motorcycle itself. A first edition launch kit is available at Royal Enfield dealers across the United States with the popular accessories like touring mirrors, compact engine guard kits, rider and passenger deluxe footpegs, billet oil cap cover, beautifully polished handlebar clamp with bar end finisher kit, full front and rear LED turn signals, and a Royal Enfield motorcycle cover. Whether riding solo, with a passenger, or in a group, the Super Meteor 650 from Royal Enfield outputs 122 years of motorcycle history into the ultimate expression of pure cruising.

The first Super Meteor 650 motorcycles will be available for purchase in the next few weeks.
