    After all the waiting and spy shots, Royal Enfield has finally announced an official unveil date for the highly anticipated Super Meteor 650. As we earlier reported, the Super Meteor 650 will be shown at EICMA in Milan, on November 8 at 4pm IST.

    • It appears the Shotgun 650 will be shown at a later date
    • Teaser image shows Pirelli Phantom Sportscomp tyres for Super Meteor
    • India unveil likely to take place at Rider Mania 2022 later this month

    Royal Enfield has put out a teaser image of the upcoming Super Meteor, showing the rear of the motorcycle, and announced November 8 as the unveil date. While we've already got a very clear idea of what the bike will look like from all the spy shots, this teaser does show one interesting detail.

    In the teaser image, the bike appears to have a Pirelli Phantom Sportscomp rear tyre. The latest test mule sighting outside Chennai though showed that the bike is running CEAT Zoom Cruz tyres, like the rest of RE's 650cc line-up. It will be interesting to see what rubber RE finally goes for with the production version, and whether it will differ based on the market.

    The teaser image also gives us a rough idea of the instrumentation on the Super Meteor, which looks extremely similar to what you'll find on the smaller Meteor 350. There is a large offset dial housing an analogue speedometer, with a digital inset for trip-related information. Alongside this dial, we also see a Tripper navigation pod, which is likely to be offered as an optional accessory. The standalone round tail-lamp with the circumferential LED DRL is what gives this away as being the Super Meteor, very closely matching the design of the Meteor 350.

    Interestingly, RE's literature seems to indicate that it will only be showing one new motorcycle at EICMA this year, suggesting that perhaps the Shotgun 650 is still some time away. As far as India is concerned, you can expect the Super Meteor to make its homeland debut at Rider Mania 2022, scheduled to take place between 18 and 20 November in Goa.
