The immensely popular Chennai-based bike-making giant, Royal Enfield, recently launched the Shotgun 650 in India. This motorcycle was unveiled at last year’s Motoverse, also known as Rider Mania. The company announced that only 25 units of this bike’s limited edition model will be delivered initially, and all buyers will be chosen via a lucky draw. Following this unique launch, the company has now delivered the first customer Shotgun 650 in India, and the video of this delivery has been shared online.
The delivery video of India’s first customer Royal Enfield Shotgun 650 has been shared on YouTube by Garage Reviews on their channel. He starts off by mentioning that, according to his research, this is the first-ever customer Shotgun 650 delivery, and it is taking place in Chandigarh. Following this, he shows the owner of the bike taking the covers off his new bike. The presenter then starts showing the bike in detail.
Royal Enfield Shotgun 650 Walkaround
First off, he shows the unique paint scheme of this particular bike. The presenter starts by showing the gradient-painted fuel tank where the front portion has been painted in deep black and then transitions from deep blue to light blue. It also gets unique neon green accents and designs with a neon green Royal Enfield logo. The presenter also mentions that the bike gets a number of piano-black elements such as the front fender and engine cover.
Next up, the presenter states that the Royal Enfield Shotgun 650 is based on the Super Meteor 650. However, there are a few key differences, says the host. He starts at the front and mentions that it gets a unique and more muscular-looking cowl finished in piano black. The Shotgun 650 also gets LED turn indicators which are halogen in the Super Meteor. He also highlights that the owner of this bike has opted for the deletion of the rear seat; hence, it has only one seat. But from the factory, it comes with two seats.
After the presenter shows the rear end of the bike and states that there is a difference between the positioning of the exhaust pipes of both bikes. He states that the Super Meteor 650 gets exhaust pipes that are close to the bike, but in Shotgun 650, they are positioned outwards giving it a more unique appearance. He also highlights the pricing of the Shotgun 650, which he states is Rs 4.25 lakh ex-showroom, and the customer paid Rs 4.91 lakh.
Shotgun 650 Features and Engine
As for the features, the presenter states that the Shotgun 650 comes with a full-LED lighting system and a semi-digital console featuring a Tripper navigation module. Meanwhile, on the powerplant side of things, it comes powered by the same 649cc petrol engine that we already see on the Super Meteor 650. The Shotgun 650 gets the same air and oil-cooled, parallel-twin-cylinder engine, delivering a maximum power of 47 bhp and a respectable 52 Nm of torque. This powerful engine will come coupled with a smooth six-speed gearbox.
