Top 5 Features of the 2024 Royal Enfield Shotgun 650

These are the top five features of the 2024 Royal Enfield Shotgun 650.

Royal Enfield sets its sights on the affordable middleweight cruiser segment in the US and it’s doing it with the 2024 Shotgun 650 ($6,899). Occupying an important space that is currently devoid of competition from American motorcycle manufacturers like Harley-Davidson and Indian Motorcycle, the Shotgun 650 takes a page out of the Honda playbook in the awesome Rebel 500, with a twist. Engineered in England and manufactured at its Indian factory, the Shotgun 650 proves Royal Enfield’s rapidly improving streetbike engineering. Here are the top five features of Royal Enfield’s cruiser.

  1. This 648cc parallel-twin engine. It has loads of character, it sounds cool, and it makes right around 41 hp at the tire.
  2. The Showa inverted fork and twin shocks—this bike rides really nice on the street. It also does surprisingly well in the canyons.
  3. We love the aesthetics of this motorcycle. It has a nice, bright LED headlight and the proportions are spot on. This is a good-looking motorcycle.
  4. It’s dang comfortable! You wouldn’t believe how cozy this bike is for riding around town.
  5. For a price of around $7,000, this streetbike represents excellent value in the class. We also love its much improved paint and fit and finish.

We’ll see you in the next episode.
