Royal Enfield Shotgun, 'custom' attitude from Monday to Sunday

Royal Enfield continues its sum and continues. With the excellent reception of its bet on the 'custom' segment of the Super Meteor, it takes advantage of its 648 cc engine and redoubles its bet in this market niche, with few options in the medium displacement, especially on the more traditional side of the canons.

With a backbone of steel, the Shotgun 650 has a solid response in the mid-range of revolutions, delivering maximum power of 47 HP (perfect for the A2 license) at 7,250 rpm and torque of almost 53 Nm at 5,650 turns.

The design of the Shotgun 650 draws ergonomically from both the most classic 'custom' and a renewed commitment to comfort (a sometimes difficult variable in this style of motorcycle), with mid-height footpegs, a somewhat sporty seat located just 795 mm high - which allows it to be easily changed to a two-seater by adding the rear part - and a handlebar without any distortion in any direction and whose position allows you to sit on the seat and use the footpegs in a truly neutral position.

The neo-retro touches come in the front LED headlight integrated into a signature casing, in the switches and in the instrumentation, which combines analogue and digital on the left clock (the info is digital and could well be somewhat larger in size ) and the cutting edge of its small but effective Tripper browser.

The suspension is one of the great attractions of the model with Showa providing a 43 mm inverted front fork (SF-BPF) with 120 mm of travel and a double rear shock absorber with five-point preload adjustment and 90 mm to stop. For braking, a 320 mm disc at the front with a double-piston caliper and another 300 mm disc at the rear with a single-piston caliper. The ABS is dual channel. The wheels, which are both 'tubeless', are 18" and 17" at the front and rear, respectively, shod with rubber from CEAT, Royal Enfield's reference brand.

The Shotgun needs no introduction when you get on it. The seat is comfortable, as in all Royal Enfields, and it is true that its neutral position of the footpegs allows quick access to comfort when riding with it in the city, at the same time allowing a certain sporty posture when facing the curves. . He takes these without hesitation, the fork gives confidence and the brakes, although they could be a little less spongy to give it more consistency when entering, also... be careful, rubbing with the footpegs is not only not difficult but it becomes a fun curve game after curve.

The motorcycle asks you to run with it on secondary roads, where its natural space is located. Although it is not afraid of highways, it asks you to face traffic with its 1,465 mm wheelbase (somewhat shorter than the Super Meteor) and a good turning radius when stopped... It asks you to fully enjoy every moment on it.
