Royal Enfield Shotgun 650 Highlights
The Shotgun 650 is built on the Royal Enfield’s 650-Twin Platform and is positioned between the Super Meteor 650 and Continental GT 650. The bike features a modern-retro design since it draws inspiration from the SG650 concept which was showcased at the EICMA 2021. The bike is available in 4 colour options – Sheetmetal Grey, Plasma Blue, Green Drill and Stencil White.
The Variants and Ex-showroom prices of the Royal Enfield Shotgun 650 are as follows.
Coming to features, the Shotgun includes an LED headlight, a semi-digital instrument cluster with navigation, a USB charging port, mid-set footpegs, a single-seat setup and a flat handlebar. The bike also features the company’s new in-app feature of the Royal Enfield Wingman, which allows riders to check the bike’s live location, fuel and engine oil levels, and more.
When it comes to suspensions, the Royal Enfield Shotgun 650 is equipped with 43mm Showa USD forks at the front and a 5-step adjustable rear shock absorber at the rear.
