Royal Enfield to launch new Meteor 350 on November 6

by Autocar India 25 Oct 2020

Royal Enfield has announced that the upcoming Meteor 350 will be officially launched on November 6. The all-new Meteor 350 has been spied testing a number of times and a brochure revealing its specifications also found its way online. Now, all that remains is for the manufacturer to officially reveal the bike and its pricing.

The first brochure leak revealed that the Meteor 350 will be available in three variants – Fireball, Stellar and Supernova. The newest set of images, however, gives an idea of the mechanical side of things. Powering the Meteor 350 will be a 350cc engine that will supposedly develop 20.5hp and 27Nm of torque. For reference, the UCE Thunderbird 350 produced 19.8hp and 28Nm of torque. The document also says that the engine will still be a long-stroke unit that will continue to feature the thumping exhaust sound.

Additionally, the leaked document also suggests that the Meteor 350 will use a revised gearbox. It is said to have a lighter clutch pull and smoother shifts.

The older leaks also revealed information about the new Tripper Navigation feature and a Bluetooth-enabled GPS system, similar to that seen on TVS products. The Meteor 350 will also get a gear position indicator on its digi-analogue instrument cluster.

It is expected that pricing for the Royal Enfield Meteor 350 will start at Rs 168,000 (ex-showroom). We’ll know two weeks from now.
