This year’s Esposizione Internazionale Ciclo Motociclo e Accessori (EICMA) has been quite a big one, with big reveals from the likes of Honda and Peugeot. Not to be outdone by the Japanese and European brands, though, Indian motorcycle manufacturer Royal Enfield also had its share of the spotlight in Milan to unveil its newest offering: the Super Meteor 650.
This new cruiser is the latest addition to RE’s growing lineup of stylish classic bikes. Stylish round headlamp? Check. Teardrop tank? Check. Low-slung seat? Check. Chunky tires? Yet another check. Chrome accents on the dark-colored finish? Even more checks.

The Scram 411 is already here, and we’re expecting to see the hip Hunter 350 on our shores in the future, too. Should this eventually make its way to our market as well?
