Estimated read time 2 min read

The Shotgun 650 from Royal Enfield is the fourth motorcycle built on the 650 Twin platform, featuring distinctive bobber styling with a strong emphasis on customization. This model is set to come equipped with 31 genuine accessories. Globally revealed, the Shotgun 650 was initially showcased at the Motoverse event in Goa this year, where a limited edition version was introduced, limited to just 25 units. While all units of the exclusive Motoverse edition have been claimed, the company is scheduled to release the production version of the Shotgun 650 in January 2024. Here are the key highlights of Royal Enfield’s latest model.

Embodying bobber aesthetics, the Shotgun 650 stands out as the fourth motorcycle in Royal Enfield’s lineup crafted around the renowned 650 Twin platform. Serving as the production variant of the SG650, initially revealed at the 2021 EICMA show in Milan, this motorcycle is tailored as a factory custom, offering a versatile canvas for customization by bike enthusiasts. With its bobber-inspired posture, characterised by a broad flat handlebar, mid-set footpegs, and a hovering single seat, the Shotgun 650 presents a distinctive style. Additionally, the motorcycle allows for customisation with a pillion seat, listed among the 31 genuine accessories. Notable features include shortened fenders, centralized mass distribution for improved agility, and the inclusion of pea-shooter-style exhausts.

In terms of color choices, Royal Enfield provides the Shotgun 650 with a selection of four distinctive color schemes: Stencil White, Plasma Blue, Green Drill, and Sheetmetal Grey. Each of these liveries features a unique paint job with striking graphic work, adding to the motorcycle’s visual appeal.


The Shotgun 650 is equipped with the same 648 cc parallel-twin air/oil-cooled engine that was initially introduced with the Interceptor 650 and Continental GT650 models. Boasting a 270-degree crank configuration, this power unit generates an output of 47bhp and 52 Nm, coupled with a 6-speed gearbox. Distinct from the Super Meteor 650, the Shotgun 650 incorporates a more compact 13.8-liter fuel tank, with an asserted mileage of 22 kmpl.

Riding Dynamics:

As a bobber-style motorcycle, the Shotgun 650 presents a poised and immersive riding posture. The broad handlebar enhances control by providing increased leverage with minimal effort, and the conveniently positioned mid-set footpegs offer comfort and accessibility. With a saddle height of 795 mm, the Shotgun 650 not only achieves a low-slung stance but also ensures ease of use for riders of shorter stature.
