The SG650 Concept is unveiled officially by Royal Enfield at EICMA.

While many expected that Royal Enfield will bring the Super Meteor 650 to the show, the concept based on the 650cc platform will spawn the all-new Shotgun 650.

The new concept is designed by Mark Wells and the idea is to offer a new modern motorcycle with classic styling. Typically designed as Bobber, the Royal Enfield SG6500 gets a floating-style seat. There is a tubular handlebar and the fenders are chopped for a raw look.

Royal Enfield has added vintage styling with a polished aluminium finish on the front fender while the fuel tank gets modern-age digital graphics.

Production version will be an upgrade for the Meteor 350 owners

Other timeless design highlights include a CNC billet machined fuel tank cap, wheels made out of solid aluminium black, upside-down forks (which appeared for the first time on a Royal Enfield), and a hand-stitched black leather seat.

There are gas-charged shock absorbers under the rider’s seat. Royal Enfield has also modified the subframe of the motorcycle to add a low-slung look.

The Indian manufacturer revealed the SG650 Concept

The SG650 will be repackaged in the production form to be Shotgun 650. It is based on the same chassis as the Interceptor and Continental GT 650. In fact, the same engine will power the motorcycle.

It is the most powerful engine produced by Royal Enfield ever and creates a unique rumble because of its 270-degree crank. Spy pictures of the motorcycle reveal that Royal Enfield will pull out a lot of features from the production version but will retain upside-down forks.

The Shotgun 650 will be a great choice if someone wants a more powerful touring motorcycle and will serve as an upgrade to the Meteor 350.
