Since Royal Enfield has teased the Super Meteor, the motorcycle should get unveiled soon
Royal Enfield has teased the upcoming Super Meteor in one of the videos released online pertaining to its South Pole expedition.
The middleweight cruiser machine was shown very briefly in the video featuring team rider Dean. As many as 3 examples of the motorcycle were shown in the same frame.
Design-wise, the recently teased Royal Enfield Super Meteor had a circular headlight, round blinkers (with both orange and clear lenses), blacked handlebar and mirrors, large teardrop-style fuel tank, split seat, simplistic side panels and a circular tail lamp.
One can see that the motorcycle will come with lots of chromed parts like the casing for the lighting units, switchgear panel, bar end weights and instrument cluster rings.
Speaking of instrument cluster, the Super Meteor will come with a bigger pod that also has a digital display integrated into it, while the smaller pod seems to be for the Tripper Navigation assist.
Featuring alloy wheels, the upcoming middleweight machine from Royal Enfield has dual exhaust pipes, inverted front fork, twin rear shock absorbers, and a disc brake on each wheel.
Looks like the bike will be offered in different variants like the Meteor 350, with one model at least featuring a tall flyscreen. A rear carrier rack should well be available as an optional extra, along with several other accessories.
Powering the motorcycle will be the brand’s tried and tested 648cc parallel twin which produces 47 HP and 52 Nm in the Interceptor 650 and Continental GT 650. The gearbox will be a 6-speed unit.
Expected to be launched in India next year, the Super Meteor should bolster Enfield’s grip in the middleweight motorcycle segment. It will be joined by another 650cc motorcycle which was recently showcased at EICMA 2021 as the SG650 concept.
