The Royal Enfield Meteor 350 leaked brochure images hinted that the bike would be powered by a new BS6-compliant 350cc, single-cylinder, fuel-injected, the air-cooled engine will be good for producing 20 horsepower along with a peak torque of 27 Nm.
The new engine generates one hp more power and 1 Nm lesser torque than the current BS6-compliant 346cc air-cooled fuel-injected UCE motor. The machine should be a lot more subtle than before while maintaining the typical RE thump to a certain extent. The transmission will most probably be a five-speed unit. In terms of principal features, the Royal Enfield Meteor 350 will come with features like a digital-analog instrument cluster and smartphone connectivity, and turn-by-turn navigation assist. As far as configuration is concerned, the bike will be available with optional add-ons such as a windshield, bash plate, panniers, seats, footpegs, backrests.
Furthermore, the bike will get an LED taillight, and a circular LED DRL, and a USB charging port. The Meteor 350 is expected to be launched in India for Rs. 1.60 lakh. It’s heartbreaking to say that you have to wait a little longer as the launch date is now pushed beyond Diwali 2020. You can expect it to hit the road by the end of the year 2020.
The Royal Enfield Meteor 350 will compete with Jawa Forty Two, Bajaj Dominar 250.
