Let’s quickly delve into all the necessary details of the new Shotgun 650: –
- Built on a steel tubular frame, the Royal Enfield Shotgun 650 is a bobber-style motorcycle.
- It is the fourth model derived from the brand’s 650cc platform, joining the Interceptor, Continental GT, and Super Meteor 650 in the league.
- Powered by the same 648cc, parallel-twin engine as the Super Meteor, producing 47PS and 52.3Nm.
- It comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox with assist & slipper clutch.
- Design-wise, the Shotgun has a retro appeal with chunky bikini fairing housing the LED headlamps, a round fuel tank, a flat & wide handlebar for upright position, chrome-finished bar-end mirrors, and a cantilever floating-seat design. Furthermore, its mid-mounted pegs and chopped fender contribute to its authentic American bobber appeal.
- Other features include blacked-out twin pea-shooter exhausts, a single seat, and a semi-digital instrument cluster with a tripper navigation pod.
- Underpinnings comprise a 43mm big piston Showa fork with 120mm wheel travel and twin rear shock absorbers with 90mm suspension travel.
- For braking, the bike gets a 320mm front disc brake and a 300mm rear disc brake setup, with a dual-channel Antilock Braking System (ABS) as standard.
- 18-inch front and 17-inch rear wheels with 100-section front and 150-section rear (radial) tubeless Ceat Zoom Cruz tyres | 240kg kerb weight | 795mm seat height | 140mm ground clearance.
Within the 650cc segment, the Shotgun 650 stands as a unique option. Potential alternatives may include smaller-capacity bobbers such as the Jawa Perak and Jawa 42 Bobber.
