Royal Enfield has unveiled its Super Meteor to press at the EICMA motorcycle show in Milan, revealing a new model to sit above the Meteor 350 cruiser, and aside the Interceptor 650 and Continental GT 650 in its twin-cylinder line-up.
Like its 650 Twin stablemates, the new Super Meteor is motivated by the same 648cc parallel-twin engine though it is distinguished by highway-ready ergos like foot forward controls, big wide bars and a larger seat.
Suspension consists of 43mm upside-down forks (120mm travel) and twin shocks at the rear (101mm), while wheels measure 19- and 16-inches front-to-back.
A single front brake disc measures 320mm at the front, like its 650 siblings, though the rear is slightly larger at 300mm likely due to its heftier weight of 241 kilograms (wet).
INFO MOTO understands that the Royal Enfield Super Meteor is set to arrive in Australia sometime next year, however, availability details have yet to be officially confirmed.
More to come.
