Shotgun 650 Dylan Ruddy Bikesales“Really smooth, really fun to ride… Just aggressive enough that you can have fun in the twisties too. At $11,590 this bike is an absolute bargain.”

Greg Leech – Info Moto

“It’s really nicely finished. This is all metallic switch gear, I really like that. The blacked out nature of it…the tough look…the fact you can customise the hell out of it: that’s a massive plus.”


Jeff Ware –

“We did an hour and a half of traffic, so we really got a good feel for what the clutch and low speed balance is like for the every day rider. Easy to ride… well balanced even at walking pace, and let’s face it: most people are going to do that every single day on one of those bikes.”

Phil Suriano – Just Bikes

“The bike itself rides beautifully as is, and can be that platform for making your own unique changes.”


Kris Hodgson – MC News

“It’s a really fun thing. It’s a nice handler, great engine, very willing, great midrange. You can knock it through that gearbox and really rev it out which is great. It doesn’t feel like a heavy cruiser. Very well balanced.”

“Overall I’m very impressed with what Royal Enfield have done. Whether you’re a fully licenced rider…or you’re a beginner rider looking for your first machine to jump onto, you’ll love this.”

Kevin Kinghan – Kiwi Rider

“The Shotgun is a nicely finished, solid feeling bike that is both LAMS legal and a decent mid-sized bobber in its own right that comes with a confident warranty, a bunch of easy to fit accessories and an easy to live with, flexible powerplant.”

Andrew Jenkin – Exhaust Notes

“Through Melbourne traffic, it’s well mannered and nimble enough for effective and hassle-free lane filtering. The Shotgun is a pleasant place from which to navigate the urban jungle.”

”The ergonomics of the Shotgun have you in a reasonably aggressive riding position, reaching forward into an almost roadster fashion. We will say, we’re a fan of the setup.”

Ross Stanford – Biker Torque

“It makes really simple customisation a straight forward thing to do. I think that’s absolutely wonderful”


Ross Stanford – Throttle Downunder

“Riding the Royal Enfield Shotgun 650 through the Yarra Valley was an unforgettable experience. This bike is the perfect blend of classic aesthetics and modern performance. Whether you’re a seasoned rider looking for a new toy or a newbie wanting a reliable, stylish ride, the Shotgun 650 won’t disappoint.”

“So, if you’re in the market for a new bike, do yourself a favour and check out the Royal Enfield Shotgun 650. Customise it to your heart’s content, hit the road, and enjoy the ride. Who knows, you might just find yourself cruising through the Yarra Valley too, with a grin plastered on your face just like I did.”
