Royal Enfield Meteor 350 launched at Rs. 1,75,817 (ex-showroom Chennai). Building on this rich heritage and experience of long distance cruising, the Meteor 350 is all set to take the journey much further.
The Meteor 350 inherits its name from another iconic Royal Enfield motorcycle of the 1950’s. The new Royal Enfield Meteor 350 easy-cruiser, carries Royal Enfield’s signature styling but with many firsts, and is set to be an equally outstanding machine for our times.
Together with the launch of the Meteor 350 comes the Royal Enfield’s Make It Yours – MiY – initiative, an inventive and unique motorcycle personalization tool. New Meteor 350 owners can tap into thousands of possible personalisation combinations when they order their motorcycle via the Royal Enfield App.
Meteor is powered by a 349cc air-oil cooled single-cylinder engine, with 20.2 bhp and 27 Nm of torque at 4000 rpm mated to a 5-speed gearbox, with fifth gear being an overdrive for stress-free and economical highway cruising, and a 7-plate clutch for easy gear changes in built-up traffic.
Designed with a balancer shaft, the new platform gives a smooth and well-mannered ride experience, while great care has been taken to retain that essential Royal Enfield ‘thump’. It has a low seat height and centre of gravity with 41mm forks with 130mm of travel and twin tube emulsion shock absorbers with 6-step adjustable preload at the rear. For the bonafide cruiser experience, the footpegs are forward-mounted, with a heel and toe gearshift.
TBT (Turn-By-Turn) navigation pod, known as the Royal Enfield Tripper, a highly focused navigation display device for real time directions, built with Google Maps Platform also makes its way on the Royal Enfield Meteor.
The Royal Enfield Meteor 350 will be available in 3 editions, − the Fireball, the Stellar and the Supernova. All editions are fitted with alloy wheels and tubeless tyres as standard. They are 100/90 – 19 at the front and a 140/70 – 17 at the rear with with 300mm front and 270mm rear discs and dual channel ABS.
All three Meteor variants come with a new instrument cluster which combines the timeless elegance of a ‘dancing needle’ analogue speedometer with the functionality of an LCD display for essentials such as gear indicator, fuel gauge, clock and tripmeter. Last but not least, a USB port is discreetly mounted below the handlebars to enable charging on the go.
Bookings will be taken across all dealerships in the country. Motorcycle deliveries for the Royal Enfield Meteor 350 will begin on November 7, 2020.
