The Royal Enfield Meteor is likely to be powered by a 350cc single-cylinder engine that will push about 20 horses. The Meteor will go against the likes of the Jawa, Benelli Imperiale 400 and the Honda H’ness CB350
It's official! Royal Enfield will bring in the all-new Meteor on 6th November 2020. Although, the Chennai-based bikemaker hasn’t officially shared any information about the new motorcycle, spy shots and leaked brochures have given us a fair idea of what to expect.
In terms of design, the Meteor draws its inspiration from the Thunderbird 350X and is expected to feature similar bright colour options. The Royal Enfield signature circular headlight design will continue on the Meteor as well and it will feature LED DRLs and LED taillight as well. Expect it to pack more features like semi-digital instrument cluster with turn-by-turn navigation and Bluetooth connectivity, a USB charging socket and more.
Royal Enfield hasn’t revealed any technical specs as yet, but if spy shots are anything to go by, the Meteor will feature a 350cc single-cylinder fuel-injected motor that is good for about 20 horses and 27Nm. For reference, the Thunderbird 350X produced 19.8bhp and 28Nm. More details of the Meteor will only be unveiled at the time of its launch on 6th November. Expect the prices to be in the Rs 1.7-1.8 lakh range. When launched, the Meteor will compete against the likes of the Jawa, Benelli Imperiale 400 and the recently launched Honda H’ness CB350.
