The motorcycle also features wide 18-inch front and 17-inch rear tubeless tires, along with 320 mm and 300 mm disc brakes, ensuring an exhilarating and secure riding experience.
Design-wise, the Shotgun 650 boasts an LED headlamp and a digi-analogue instrument cluster with the Tripper navigation system, adding convenience and functionality to the rider’s experience.
To further enhance the excitement, Royal Enfield has introduced the Royal Enfield Wingman, an innovative in-app feature that provides real-time updates on the motorcycle’s location, fuel and engine oil levels, service reminders, and more. Additionally, the bike is equipped with a USB charging port for added convenience.
Overall, the production version of the Royal Enfield Shotgun 650 promises to be a versatile and thrilling motorcycle that combines style, performance, and functionality. With its unique design and features, it is set to make a mark in the mass market upon its release in early 2024.
