Shotgun 650

Shotgun 650 came up as a surprise for many motor enthusiasts, when Chennai-based Royal Enfield, a motorcycle manufacturer, held a grand reveal and launch event for this newest model. At the highly anticipated Motoverse 2023 event in Vagator, Goa—also known as Rider Mania—the company revealed the motorcycle under wraps. Only 25 of these limited-edition, bobber-styled motorcycles will be available in the first phase of sales, making it the brand’s most distinctive and scarce offering in India. The company has declared that the Motoverse event attendees will have the opportunity to win these 25 bikes through a lucky draw.

Shotgun 650 Design

Shotgun 650

Design-wise, the all-new Royal Enfield Shotgun 650 has a long, low-slung profile and classic bobber styling. A striking naked round headlamp with an offset console highlights the design. It also has a single seat, a chunky, chopped rear fender, and bar-end mirrors. This new motorcycle from the company has all-black hardware, which gives it a unique appearance. A bold paint job that blends blue and black tones with edgy graphics will look fantastic.

Features and Specifications

The new Shotgun 650 has a full LED lighting system and a semi-digital console with a useful Tripper navigation module, among other features. Regarding the powerplant, it will be equipped with the same 649cc gasoline engine found on the Super Meteor 650. The same parallel twin-cylinder, air- and oil-cooled engine powers the Shotgun 650, producing a respectable 52 Nm of torque in addition to a maximum power of 47 bhp.
