Spy Shots Show 650 Twin Alongside a Second, Heavier Contender
Recent spy shots from MCN have captured what is believed to be a souped-up version of Royal Enfield’s new Meteor 350 – and judging by the size of the engine spotted, we’re likely to get around three variants for the RE lineup.
Dubbed the ‘Super Meteor’ after a set of filed RE trademarks popped up on the web, this particular piece of pretty features a laid-back set of ergonomics, alongside “A bit more oomph in the chassis.”
As for the bike’s spec potential, we’re looking at the same (or similar) twin thumper housed in the present Interceptor and Continental GT models, so that means around 649cc of A2-friendly juice capable of 47 hp @ 7,250rpm and torque racked at a very nice 38.4 lb-ft @ 5,250rpm.
So what’s different about this beastie?
If you take a look under the torso, this particular set of spy shots show off five-spoke alloy wheels hooked up to an upside-down set of forks, as well as ‘swept-back bars’ complementing a teardrop tank and chromed accents.
If you’re wondering about the rugged bit of handsome MCN eluded to, they’ve got an explanation for that one, too…
“The other bike looks like a souped up version of the Super Meteor,” hints the report.
“Royal Enfield had one of those back in the day, too – the Constellation. It is surely no coincidence that the company re-applied for that trademark late last year.”
We look forward to more updates as they trickle down the proverbial pipeline.
