Royal Enfield enthusiasts in India are eagerly anticipate the launch of the Shotgun 650, the next big offering from the Chennai-based bikemaker. The limited, customised version of this bike, restricted to just 25 units, has been priced at Rs 4.25 lakh. The unveiling of the mass-market model is eagerly awaited, with its prices set to be announced in January 2024. Forecasts indicate that the factory-painted variant of the Shotgun 650 will be available at a more accessible price point compared to its exclusive, customised counterpart.

The heart of the Royal Enfield Shotgun 650 lies in its 650cc parallel-twin engine, a fact confirmed by the company at the 2023 Motoverse. Although power and torque figures were initially withheld, recent revelations from a leaked Type Approval Certificate provided by the Delhi Transport Department have shed light on these crucial details. The Shotgun 650 will deliver a maximum power of 46.4bhp at 7,250rpm, a performance level akin to the Super Meteor 650. Complementing this power, the motor is expected to generate a torque output of approximately 52.3Nm. Transmission responsibilities will be managed by a 6-speed gearbox.
