Royal Enfield has unveiled the production version of the Shotgun 650. The bike mentioned here is the same bike that will be distributed to customers after the limited edition factory custom versions showcased at the company’s Motoverse festival last month.

The paintwork is the main area where both the bikes differ; The Motoverse version has nice hand-painted paint with elements like the color gradient on the fuel tank. Three simple paint jobs—drill green, plasma blue, sheet metal gray, and stencil white—are applied to production bikes.

Royal Enfield Shotgun 650: Hardware and Engine

It has the same 648cc parallel-twin engine as the Super Meteor 650, which produces 47 horsepower and 52.3 Nm, and it shares its engine and main frame with that bike. There are other ergonomic differences as well. The Shotgun has more mid-set footpegs and a flat handlebar, contributing to a more upright seating position.

Additionally, the Royal Enfield Shotgun 650 gets an 18-inch/17-inch combination instead of the 19-inch/16-inch setup, and the wheel diameters are also changed. The suspension configuration has had to be adjusted due to the changed wheel size, but the fork and dual shock absorber combination remains the same.
