Royal Enfield’s Super Meteor 650 previewed in Malaysia at Art Of Speed 2023

During at the recent Art Of Speed 2023, Royal Enfield has make a preview of its Super Meteor 650. It is centred around the acclaimed 648cc twin platform that was a feature of multi-award-winning motorcycles, the Interceptor INT 650 and Continental GT 650. It has been rigorously tested on proving tracks, highways, and roads from Europe to Asia, clocking up over one million kilometres to ensure the most reliable and enjoyable ride.

For the Malaysia market, it will be offered in two distinct variants – Super Meteor 650 and the Super Meteor 650 Tourer – and in five distinct colourways – Astral Blue, Astral Black, Interstellar Green, Celestial Red and Celestial Blue.

The Super Meteor 650 combines uncluttered controls and instrumentation with relaxed rider ergonomics; rock-steady stability on highways with pure riding pleasure on even on the most winding roads where it keenly changes direction. Its flexible, smooth engine has torque aplenty and its cool retro styling is infused with clearly recognisable Royal Enfield DNA. It has a physically imposing presence, yet remains an easy ride, whether you are traversing vast landscapes or heading towards the vanishing point on the horizon. It will be perfectly suited for Malaysia ese roads, highways and multi-terrains alike.

The Super Meteor 650 has the silhouette of a thoroughbred cruiser, with a low stance and seat with wide hips and a narrow waist, which allow a comfortable standover. Riding position is one of the key differentiators of any cruiser and the Super Meteor nails this with fully feet-forward foot controls and raised, wide handlebars. These fundamental cruiser design elements meld to make the rider feel they are part of their motorcycle. A large tank gives extended range and wide tubeless tyres on 16” rear and 19” front alloy rims provide dependability and peace of mind at highway speeds.Its dynamic design and a striking silhouette add to the streamlined look of the motorcycle, giving it the appearance of moving forward and cruising even when standing still.

Created at the UK Technology Centre in conjunction with Harris Performance, the frame and swingarm are entirely new and meet the design brief of a motorcycle with a low centre of gravity for high-speed stability and easy manoeuvrability that is confidence inspiring for all levels of rider. The rider’s view and controls have received special focus to ensure that the design, fit and finish are class-leading. Its instrument cluster combines the timeless elegance of an analogue speedometer with the functionality of an LCD display for essentials such as revs, gear indicator, fuel gauge, clock and tripmeter. Adjustable clutch and brake levers offer a smooth operation along with a touch of retro finesse, while ergonomically designed barrel profile grips integrate the Royal Enfield logo.

All-new plated aluminium switch cubes hold unique rotary switches, placing premium, chic design elements into the rider’s hands. Then there is Royal Enfield’s celebrated TBT (Turn-By-Turn) navigation pod, known as the Royal Enfield Tripper. A discreet USB socket is located beneath the left side panel. Further attention-grabbing features on this cruiser are its LED headlamp, a first for Royal Enfield, which is carefully designed to deliver old-school charm but provide all the benefits of LED technology. Finally, the Super Meteor’s paint finish is superlative while its distinctive tank badges, inspired by historic Royal Enfield designs, are faceted in chrome and accented with two colours of tinted infill that result in a gorgeous, jewel-like finish.

The Super Meteor 650 will be available in Malaysia at the end of September 23. Pre-orders are now open via Royal Enfield Dealerships across Malaysia .
