Re: Royal Enfield Super Meteor 650cc, now unveiled

The hullabaloo around the launch of the Super Meteor seems to have suddenly gone silent. Even the dealers seem to be in dark and not sure. I called the showroom just to enquire as to when the bike will be on display and the call attender was like "What is Super Meteor?".

As rightly pointed out earlier in this forum even the bookings done by interested buyers during riders mania have no idea of the status of their bookings. RE should have continued with the snippets every now and then to keep bikers interest and that enthusiasm going.

Re: Royal Enfield Super Meteor 650cc, now unveiled

Supermeteor 650 when are you coming to showroom :-(
Any news on the said bikes seeing our Indian roads any time soon. As per many websites, it was formally supposed to be launched on 10/01 but there is no news from RE, their website, dealers give blank look on enquiry of launch. Any info from members would be welcome. I am all don with Love for naked bikes and need to graduate to Cruisers.

Thanks.

Edit: As per the latest update today from regional RE team, the price announcement is supposed to be on 16th Jan.
The regional team has started coordinating with me on the booking and allocations. They have informed that the delivery will be by the end of January and provided contact points of the dealer to discuss on the required accessories once the official launch and pricing is announced.

Somehow, it looks like a cb350 copy from the front...especially in the second pic.
Will have to wait and see how the power delivery is with the added weight.

Even I have made the booking in Ridermania. I have been contacted first by RE team first on December 2nd week for confirmation and choice of dealership. Today I have been contacted by the regional team(ASM i presume from Cochin) to confirm the arrangements and probably to schedule the allocation and was told that the delivery might happen by the end of January.
If you haven't been contacted, its better you call them up and do the necessary followups

Thanks, I called them and they said the team will call you. They have my details. I guess I just need to wait.

Did you get a booking number allocated and does it show up in the RE App on Android under my Bookings section?

Nope. Nothing is showing up on the RE app booking section. All I have is an email from RE with the confirmation of receipt of ₹5K and the choice of colour with my name, email and contact number

Re: Royal Enfield Super Meteor 650cc, now unveiled

Gotta say, the RE marketing engine really is focused and goes all out. They’ve flown in big American influencers for this to make sure they reach that audience quickly. I never expected to see the likes of Yammie Noob land up in Jaisalmer for an Indian brand launch. I may not think much of their attitude to product quality and excellence, but they really do know how to build that hype around their brands. Also works excellently to their advantage that HD has vacated that affordable cruiser space.
