Super Meteor lands in Ireland

Super Meteor 650Is the new Super Meteor 650 out of this world? Paul Browne investigates.


I first saw Royal Enfield’s Super Meteor 650 at last year’s EICMA show where it was launched in Europe.

Powered by the company’s proven 650 twin, the new machine has now  landed here in Ireland, in time for the season.

While that motor is well established, the frame is new.

This was designed at the manufacturer’s UK Technology Centre in partnership with legendary frame builders, Harris Performance.

As with the frame the swingarm is entirely new. A low centre of gravity offers the rider high-speed stability as well as maneuverability.

Two up

The Super Meteor is offered in two variants, the standard and the tourer. They are available in a range of colours and with the engine being a 650 it offers accessibility and usability to a huge range of riders.

It has that classic cruiser shape with a low seat and a feet-forwards riding position.

The bars are high and the tank is wide.

The front wheel is a 19” rear and the rear is 16” affair.

Before this thing is even ridden, it looks the part and parking it up outside your favourite coffee shop should be rewarded with envious glances!

Damp proofed

The Super Meteor is the first Royal Enfield to use a USD unit. As a result, big piston damping technology allows for a comfortable and predictable riding experience.

The switch gear is finished in aluminium and even the Royal Enfield logo makes an appearance on the bars. All of this is rounded off with a light weight LED headlamp.

Google were development partners on the bike’s navigation system which marries the rider’s smart phone to the bike’s LCD display. A USB socket is standard to keep your phone topped up.

The Super Meteor 650 is available in Astral Black, Astral Blue, Astral Green, Interstellar Grey and Interstellar Green. The tourer version has a touring windscreen, touring seat and pillion backrest and is available in either Celestial Red and Celestial Blue.

The Super Meteor 650, and all the kit can be found at Sprocket & Hubs in Adare. Give Elaine or Chris a call on 0 61 60 54 93 where the new bikes start at €9,695.
