The upcoming Royal Enfield Shotgun 650 has been spotted on test once again, and from the looks of it, the test mule seems to be quite close to production. Based on the Royal Enfield SG650 concept, the Shotgun 650 will be yet another model based on the 650 Twins platform, which currently has the Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 and the Royal Enfield Continental GT 650. Another model, the Royal Enfield Super Meteor 650, which will be a 650 cc cruiser, is also expected to join Royal Enfield’s 650 cc family.
9iqhu8cs The spy shot reveals an almost production-ready test mule of the upcoming Shotgun 650
The test mule of the Shotgun 650 reveals an upside down fork, similar to what was spotted on test mules of the Super Meteor 650. At the rear, the Shotgun 650 gets dual shock absorbers like other members of its family, but the bike comes with alloy wheels, which are likely to be shod with tubeless tyres. The bike also gets an asymmetrical twin-pod instrument console, likely to be a bigger dial with the speedometer, and other details, while the smaller dial is likely to feature the Tripper navigation dial.
The Shotgun 650 is expected to be launched in early 2023, and will be the fourth model in the RE 650 Twins family.
Mechanically, the Shotgun 650 is expected to be based on the same 648 cc, parallel-twin engine, which will make around 47 bhp and 52 Nm. So far, there’s no word on a launch timeline, considering the next big launch from Royal Enfield will be the Hunter 350. The Super Meteor 650 is likely to be the next model after the Hunter 350, and is likely to be launched by the end of 2022, followed by the Shotgun 650 early next year.
