Unveiled: Royal Enfield Bullet 650 Spotted

Royal Enfield is known for constantly expanding its range, and the latest buzz is about the Bullet 650 which is set to be the largest Bullet ever produced by the company. This new model is based on the reliable 650 twin-cylinder engine platform and is expected to share similarities with the Classic 650 albeit with some distinct visual differences.

Royal Enfield Bullet 650: Design and Features

The Bullet 650 was first mentioned by us in late 2022, and recently, a test mule has been spotted. The design closely resembles the Classic 650 and even draws inspiration from the smaller 350cc Bullet and Classic models.

What sets this test mule apart from the Bullet 650, rather than the Classic 650, are its boxy rear fender, round tubular grab rail for the pillion, and the single-piece seat. These features are traditional Bullet design elements, distinct from those seen on the Classic 650.

The Bullet and Classic 650 are expected to share the same frame, underpinnings, and features, much like their 350cc counterparts. The 650cc twin-cylinder engine is anticipated to deliver the same 47hp and 52Nm of torque as it does in the current 650cc models.

A common feature across all new Royal Enfield models is the LED headlight, first introduced on the Super Meteor, and it has been spotted on the Bullet 650 as well. Like the Shotgun, the 650 twins, and the upcoming Classic 650, the Bullet 650 will also have twin exhaust pipes that protrude significantly. This design aspect might not be favorable for navigating through tight spaces in Indian city traffic.

Launch and Positioning

With Royal Enfield working on several new models across different displacements and engine configurations, there is no definitive timeline for the Bullet 650's launch. However, it is expected to be positioned above the 650 twins and below the Shotgun 650, given its simpler equipment and the Bullet's traditional role as one of the more accessible models in Royal Enfield's lineup.
