Royal Enfield unveils a new Concept, Short Gun SG650 at EICMA 2021. As you know that Royal Enfield is celebrating the 120th Anniversary of its continued production journey. The new bike from the RE brand of the classic motorcycle has offered a Bobber style design, cherishing both the worlds of modern & classic biking style. The company conveys a message of ‘Transition’ from analog to the digital era.
The Royal Enfield SG650 comes loaded with some class-leading, state-of-the-art design & features. New sets of wheels (both Front & Rear), revamped instrument cluster & dial gauges, new headlights- taillights, wide handlebars, cut-off front & rear fenders. Also comes with a freshly designed fuel tank & a solo floating seat.
Royal Enfield SG650 – Looks & Design Features
The main attraction is the fuel tank that is designed & manufactured in-house, by the Royal Enfield. With its digital paint scheme, the company is trying to highlight the upcoming next generation of the digital era. This new tank doesn’t require multiple parts & pieces to construct; instead, it is machined out of a single piece aluminum billet, resulting in lots of weight saving, with a rich & premium look as an outcome. Then the beautifully designed front face i.e. the iconic round LED headlight with brushed metal finish. The headlight housing is Integrated with sleek LED turn indicators. Similarly, the rear LED taillight also offers classic looks with an equal amount of richness.
The digital Speedo readout on the big dial gauge while an analog meter is provided for the RPM reading. The console is well crafted & designed to uplift the premium looks on the front. The wide and low rise handlebar looks flat & well proportionate to the overall looks of the bike. On the handlebar ends sits beautiful machined aluminum finished mirror housings. Looks clean & well-executed.
The black hand-stitched leather wrapped around the solo floating seat looks good & well crafted. On the front suspension it offers a set of USD forks & at the rear there is dual coil spring type suspension in a full black paint job.
The chunky front & rear tires brilliantly add up the Bobber looks & theme of the bike fitted over black painted bespoke alloy wheel. The front-wheel hosts the twin solid disc* setups to counter all that power coming straight out of the engine. The brake calipers also look freshly made. (ABS is also available but not confirmed) (*- the solid disc will probably remain a concept & won’t go to the production line)
Last but not the least, the full black exhaust silencers, completes the bike from the rear ends. Also adds a little aggression & menace to the bike. (Side profile with exhaust looks kind of similar to RE cruiser 650- as seen during road tests)
SG Launch & Price Details
Royal Enfield SG650 is powered by the same 650cc engine that also powers the GT650 & Interceptor 650. The launch may start from the mid-year of 2022.

RE 120th Anniversary Special Edition
Celebrating its 120th year of manufacturing & craftsmanship, the Royal Enfield design team has also launched two very exclusive special edition motorcycles, continental GT650 & Interceptor 650.
At the first glance, the complete matte Black paint job that runs from top to bottom & head to tail looks brilliant & your eyes are just stuck on them (appreciating the sheer stance of the bikes). Detailed with the RE embossed logo made from die-cast brass metal on the tank. Royal Enfield claims it to be handcrafted & hand polished, to showcase its excellent craftsmanship. Further increasing the exclusivity of the 120th special editions, Royal Enfield offers hand-painted Golden pinstriping on the bodywork. To make these bikes absolute collector’s items.
On top, Royal Enfield also offers full-on accessories for its 120th special edition 650 twins, making them even more special. So except for the cosmetic & paint up-gradation, the rest of the specifications of the bike are the same as the standard Interceptor 650 & continental GT650.
