There is good news for bike lovers! Your wait is over as the Royal Enfield Meteor 350 finally, has a launch date. It will be launched in India on November 6, 2020 and will be one of the most important launches for the bike maker in the recent years. The Meteor range is also expected to drive the future path for Royal Enfield in India. The bikes in this series are built on a brand new platform and get an all-new engine too.
The Royal Enfield Meteor 350 will be positioned as a global product and is likely to replace the Thunderbird 350. Leaked brochures and other documents suggest that Royal Enfield will offer the Meteor 350 in three variants, Fireball, Supernova and Stellar.
The brochure found online suggests that the Meteor 350 will be powered by a new BS6 350cc fuel-injected air-cooled single-cylinder engine. It is tipped to deliver 20 hp and 27 Nm of torque. This is 1 hp and 1 Nm more than the current BS6 346cc single-cylinder engine that Royal Enfield motorcycles use. The bike is likely to come with a digital-analogue instrument cluster with smartphone connectivity and turn-by-turn navigation assist.
The Meteor is also expected to get a secondary TFT colour display, along with the main unit that comes with an analogue speedometer and LED panel for trip meter and other essential information. The leaked images show that the new TFT display will have turn-by-turn navigation feature.
The buyers will also have several personalisation options. The accessories may include a large windscreen, engine guard, better footpegs, and more. The Meteor 350 could also feature all-LED lighting.
Even though the official price will be announced at the launch, the bike is expected to cost around Rs 1.6 lakh (ex-showroom). It will compete against Jawa Forty Two, Bajaj Dominar 250, and Honda CB350.
