Royal Enfield has over the years made a reputation for bringing retro-looking classic cruiser bikes. When Royal Enfield launches a bike, there are very high chances that the bike would continue dominating the market for many years. This is clearly evident from its products like the Bullet and the Classic. The brand has clearly laid out its plan of launching a new bike every three months. One of the planned bikes for this year could be the Shotgun 650. In this article, we have mentioned everything we know about the Royal Enfield Shotgun 650.
Royal Enfield teased the Shotgun 650 Concept at the Milan Motorcycle Show (EICMA). The concept clearly hinted towards a big and good-looking retro bike that will come based on the concept. The Shotgun 650 is expected to get the classic Bobber body styling, with one exhaust tips on each side and a single seat. The bike has already been spotted a couple of times and we expect it to be one-of-a-kind offering from the brand.
The Royal Enfield Shotgun 650 will share its engine with the existing 650 twins. This means it will be powered by a 648cc air-and oil-cooled parallel-twin engine that makes 47bhp & 52Nm torque. This engine is mated to a six-speed manual gearbox.
Royal Enfield Shotgun 650 – Instrument Cluster
Royal Enfield Shotgun 650 might get the same instrument cluster as the Meteor 350 and the Scram 411. This instrument cluster could thus get an analog speedometre, fuel level indicator, clock, odometre, and two trip metres. A colour display with Bluetooth phone connectivity is also expected to be on offer.
Royal Enfield Shotgun 650 – Price
The Shotgun 650 will be placed alongside the 650 twins. So, it could get a pricing similar to the Interceptor and Continental GT. A pricing of somewhere between Rs 3.2 lakhs to Rs 3.5 lakhs (ex-showroom) is expected.
