Royal Enfield launched the Shotgun 650 in India at Rs 3.5 lakh, strengthening its presence in the middle-weight motorcycle segment.

Royal Enfield launched the Shotgun 650 motorcycle in India on January 15, priced at roughly Rs 3.5 lakh.

This new addition strengthens the brand’s presence in the middle-weight motorcycle segment, which has seen increased demand. The Shotgun 650 becomes Royal Enfield’s fourth motorcycle powered by a 650 cc engine, joining the Interceptor, Continental GT, and Super Meteor 650 models.

At the EICMA 2021, Royal Enfield revealed the SG650 concept. The company then introduced the Shotgun 650 Motoverse Edition motorcycle in 2023, which was the production version of the SG650 Concept and created a significant buzz at the Motoverse event. Now, the Shotgun 650 has been officially launched in the Indian market.

Royal Enfield Shotgun 650: Design, Features, Engine And Others

While the Royal Enfield Shotgun 650 shares design elements with the Super Meteor 650, it distinguishes itself with unique bodywork. From the large 13.8-litre fuel tank to the side panels and rear fender, the motorcycle’s design stands out.

A contemporary touch is introduced with the aluminium cowl covering the headlamp. Overall, the bike exudes a luxurious, modern feel infused with a retro aesthetic. It’s noteworthy that the motorcycle initially presents a cruiser appearance, but a simple pull-out rear seat allows it to transform into a bobber.

The Shotgun 650 and the Super Meteor 650 exhibit numerous similarities in terms of equipment. Both bikes share the same headlight, taillight, indicators, instrumentation, switchgear cubes, and adjustable brake and clutch levers. However, the Shotgun 650 features a smaller 18-inch front wheel, a new addition, along with a larger 17-inch rear wheel.

Regarding suspension, the twin shock units are now longer but have nearly the same travel as the Super Meteor 650. The front fork length has been shortened while maintaining the same suspension travel. That being said, the new Shotgun 650’s braking system is completely new.

The Royal Enfield Shotgun 650 is propelled by the same 648 cc air-oil cooled parallel twin engine that powers other 650 cc bikes in the lineup. The engine can produce up to 46 bhp of peak power and 52 Nm of maximum torque when mated to a six-speed gearbox. About 22 km/l is what this motorbike is supposed to offer.
