Like the Royal Enfield Meteor 350, the upcoming 650cc motorcycles will also come equipped with the brand’s Tripper Navigation system, and the riders would be able to connect their smartphone via Bluetooth to get turn-by-turn navigation details.

Mechanically, the upcoming 650cc Royal Enfield motorcycles will be powered by the same 648cc, fuel-injected, parallel-twin engine, which also powers the Interceptor 650 and the Continental GT 650. It is good for a maximum power of 46.8 HP @ 7150 rpm along with a peak torque of 52 Nm @ 5250 rpm. The engine will come mated to a 6-speed gearbox along with a slipper and assist clutch as standard.
In terms of pricing, the new 650cc Royal Enfield motorcycles are expected to get an ex-showroom price range of around INR 3.50 lakhs to INR 4.00 lakhs.
