The Royal Enfield Wingman offers riders real-time information about their motorcycles and ensures proactive support at all times.
Royal Enfield Wingman is available for both Android and iOS devices and is supported by a telematics hardware and can be operated through the RE APP. Currently available only in India, customers booking the Super Meteor 650 from November 16, 2023 will get this feature as standard with a marginal increase of Rs 6,500 for the device, on the ex-showroom price, and existing Super Meteor customers can opt for this by purchasing the device and with the nominal fitment cost.

The feature also provides the rider with incisive data about the daily rides, riding patterns, trip information such as the ride routes, max speed, average speed etc, including sudden braking and sudden acceleration notifications.
