Royal Enfield to unveil The SuperMeteor at Eicma 2022

so tells us a press release from Powerdrift on its Facebook page.
They have usually been very accurate and for my part I will find out when I visit Eicma 2022 in the next few days.
However, here everything is silent, there had been some timid rumors from some of our dealers, but nothing for sure and all in mystery.
We will know soon.
What you think about, is a fake?

Glad to see RE bringing out new 650 versions. It does appear to be legitimate. If a Super Meteor is as comfortable as the Meteor 350 it should be an excellent Tourer. I also think RE should approach GIVI to develop a monolock luggage system for a Super Meteor as well as a windshield similar to what they offer already through Hitchcock's. Perhaps just a little shorter. Screw the Tripper and include a USB port. Maybe even a super-duper phone mount. Definitely would need super comfy seat. Contract with Corbin? Russell? Icing on the cake would be electronic speed control. What's not to love about a long-distance Tourer capable of running 80-85 mph all day and achieving 60+mpg.? All for under $10,000.00. They do it all and I'm in.

Agree on the seat, tach instead of the Tripper, windscreen and luggage options. Cast alloy wheels are a must for me too. The seat can easily be reworked by Russell though, as long as the pan is suitable to build on.

I hope the bike's weight comes in at least the same, if not less than the current 650's, which is only about 25 pounds more than the Meteor.

We in the colonies likely won't be seeing this for at least another year yet though.

Agree with you Dex on the cast wheels. A totally new frame and forward controls judging from the pics. Looks like they included the Tripper. Oh well...
This is one bike from RE I'll be interested in checking out when available. BUT if RE goes crazy on pricing and gets into V7 or Triumph range they might get stung.
Really good-looking bike!
