Royal Enfield Shotgun 650 Spotted – Excited? » EngineOctane

Royal Enfield is a motorcycle brand that needs no introduction. The powerful sound of the engine is music for motorcycle lovers. Recently at the Milan Motor Show (EICMA), Royal Enfield teased a new motorcycle. This concept bike, the Royal Enfield Shotgun 650, featured the same 650cc engine that the brand offers on the Continental GT650 and Interceptor 650. They called this bike the SG650, later revealed to be the Royal Enfield Shotgun 650. Just a few days ago , the production ready version of SG650 or Shotgun650 was seen in a video posted by Royal Enfield on their official YouTube channel. In this article, we will discuss what the Shotgun 650 might look like in real life.

The recent video posted by Royal Enfield on their official YouTube channel talks about modifying the Royal Enfield Himalayan for a trip to the South Pole. For the past two years, the brand has been testing the Himalayas in Iceland for this adventurous journey called Expedition 90 South. In this video, Dean Coxson talks about preparing for the expedition. We see Shotgun650 at 0:34 seconds into the video as Dean describes his work profile.

The bike gets a rounded headlight with wide handlebars and alloy wheels. The single-seat bobber-style design is quite obvious, even if the bike is only visible for a few seconds. The engine is also visible and resembles the one currently seen on the Continental GT 650 and Interceptor 650. The fuel tank looks sleek and stylish.

Motor

The Royal Enfield Shotgun 650 will be powered by a 648cc air-oil cooled engine that produces 47bhp and 52Nm of torque. This engine is mated to a six-speed gearbox. Currently, the same engine powers the Continental GT 650 and the Interceptor 650. This is a parallel twin engine from Royal Enfield and has been quite successful in the mid-size category (500cc and above).

Characteristics

SG650

The Royal Enfield Shotgun650 is expected to be the flagship bike of the brand. Hence, Royal Enfield is going to make this bike loaded with features and there are no second thoughts. The concept bike shown featured a dual disc brake setup at the front. The bike will get full LED headlamps, LED indicators, a fully digital instrument cluster and a tripper navigation system. The overall design and styling of the bike will be very aggressive and muscular. A bobber style single seat makes this bike look unique and stand out in the crowd. We also expect the Shotgun650 to come with dual-channel AVS and slipper clutch.
