Updated: Apr 24

Royal Enfield's Super Meteor 650 was one of our favourite rides of 2023, and now its custom-inspired sibling the Shotgun 650 has been confirmed for the New Zealand market.

Royal Enfield New Zealand has confirmed hot introductory pricing for the Shotgun 650, with the bike entering the NZ market from just $11,990 for the Sheet Metal Grey colourway.

Plasma Blue retails from $12,190, Green Drill from $12,190, and Stencil White tops the range at $12,390. All prices exclude on road costs.


Alongside the pricing announcement, Royal Enfield has opened up pre-orders for the bike. In a cool move, the first five customers across Australia & New Zealand to place their deposit online at 12pm Wednesday 24th April 2024 for the Shotgun 650 will receive an exclusive invitation to the official Australian launch party in mid-May 2024.


Enfields have always had plenty of options for customisation by owners, but with the Shotgun 650, Royal Enfield looks to take this a step further. The Shotgun 650 is inspired by Royal Enfield's SG650 Concept - showcased at EICMA 2021 - and brings the brand a new model as a blank canvas for customisation and personalisation.


The custom-inspired motorcycle, available in four unique colourways - Stencil White, Plasma Blue, Green Drill, and Sheet Metal Grey - the Shotgun 650 is the ultimate canvas for personalization, reflecting a blend of raw creative energy, anarchic custom culture, and the iconic Royal Enfield DNA. Built on Royal Enfield’s globally proven 650-Twin platform, the Shotgun 650 is a tribute to the culture of customisation and a new chapter in design for Royal Enfield with an exciting vision of the future.

Commenting on the launch of the motorcycle announcement, Royal Enfield CEO B Govindarajan said, “The Shotgun 650 is a symbol of the united pulse of the custom community, and an ode to the long-standing tradition of customising Royal Enfield motorcycles. After the overwhelming response for Shotgun 650 Motoverse edition, we are excited to finally make the production version available for the riding community across the world and can't wait to see how our riders infuse their unique styles into this exceptional motorcycle”.


The Royal Enfield Shotgun 650 blends retro-futuristic design with modern features. An LED headlamp fitted in a gorgeous custom, neo-modern nacelle stays true to the neo-retro fusion aesthetic while offering improved visibility. The motorcycle has a digi-analogue instrument cluster, which comes equipped with the Tripper navigation system and is designed to deliver all the information you need as you head out. It also features a USB charging port to keep your devices charged on the go.


With the globally award-winning 650 Twin platform at its core, the Shotgun 650 is loaded with a double barrel of fun. It is ergonomically optimised, with a mid-set foot position, a low 795mm seat height and an intuitive handlebar position that gives the rider a commanding sense of presence and control, while the floating single seat is both retro and modern at the same time.


The Shotgun’s specially tuned suspension features 43mm diameter separate function big piston Showa forks on the front matched to twin tube 5-step preload adjust RSU at the back.

When combined with the bike's short 1465mm wheelbase and a low centre of gravity, Royal Enfield states that the handling package comes together to make riding in traffic, on highways and down twisty back roads equally fun, without compromising on comfort. Wide 18-inch front and 17-inch rear tubeless tyres, combined with 320mm and 300mm disc brakes, ensure a steady grip, keeping you engaged and in control at all speeds.

Carrying through with the concept of customization and personalization, a diverse range of 31 Genuine Motorcycle Accessories are available for the Shotgun 650. Designed to further highlight the aesthetic appeal of custom culture, bar end mirrors, a sculpted solo seat and contrast-cut billet rims, to name a few, are available. Also, customization is inseparable from lifestyle and so to compliment the spirit of the Shotgun 650 a range of apparel has been developed to explore the future of the brand's apparel.

The New Shotgun 650 will be released in 4 bold colourways - Plasma Blue, Sheet Metal Grey, Green Drill and Stencil White. As with the rest of the Royal Enfield range, the Shotgun 650 range comes backed by a solid warranty which in the Shotgun's case is a 3-year unlimited km warranty and 3 years of roadside assistance.
