Royal Enfield Tripper Navigation is no longer standard on Meteor 350 and Himalayan

Royal Enfield has removed the Tripper Navigation pod from some of its motorcycles due to the semiconductor shortage. It is still available as an add-on though. The price of the Meteor 350 has also been revamped.

The semiconductor shortage has led to Royal Enfield removing the Tripper-pod as standard from the two motorcycles.

The Royal Enfield Tripper Navigation pod is no longer offered as standard on the Meteor 350 and the Himalayan. Royal Enfield has taken this step because of a shortage of semiconductors.

The Meteor 350 has also seen a price reduction of Rs 5,000 because of this removal. The price of the Himalayan, on the other hand, continues to be the same as before. The Meteor 350 is currently priced between Rs 2.01 lakh and Rs 2.17 lakh, whereas the Himalayan is priced between Rs 2.15 lakh and Rs 2.22 lakh. All prices are ex-showroom.

Those who do want the Tripper Navigation pod on their bikes can spec it as an add-on when using the custom order configurator. The device, however, continues to be out of stock in that option as well.

Royal Enfield has also increased the booking price for its ‘Made-to-order’ or custom order motorcycles from Rs 10,000 to Rs 20,000. The booking price for regular motorcycles, however, remains at Rs 10,000. All the above-mentioned changes came into effect from May 1, 2022.

The bottom line is that if you want a new Meteor 350 or a Himalayan with a Tripper Navigation pod, you will have to wait. The small unit is quite helpful on highway journeys, for it tells you how far the next turn is. The usefulness of its direction-giving ability in the chaotic urban scenarios of today, however, is another story altogether.
