The Royal Enfield 'Shotgun 350,' a customised version of the Meteor 350, is the newest creation of the famous American custom motorcycle builder Baxter Cycle. Baxter Cycle specialises in Triumph and Royal Enfield bikes and this one-of-a-kind build shows off their skill. It's important to make it clear that the "Shotgun 350" is a custom motorcycle project by Baxter Cycle that has nothing to do with any rumoured upcoming Royal Enfield Shotgun 350 model. The "Shotgun 350" takes a normal Meteor 350 and changes it in very specific ways, drawing inspiration from the classic bobber-style motorcycles. Making a connection to Royal Enfield's past of making the Shotgun 650 from the Super Meteor 650, the first idea was to make a bobber version from the Meteor 350 chassis.

After taking the bike apart, the builders at Baxter Cycle updated several parts to make it look better and work better. They installed a wide handlebar to improve handling, and they replaced the stock Meteor 350 exhaust with a blacked-out vintage exhaust from a Classic 350. Other changes made were replacing the stock seat with a sleek solo seat, adding Royal Enfield bar-end lights for style and function, and adding a tinted fly screen for some extra flair. Along with these changes, the bike got a beautiful matte black paint job that emphasised its overall style and made it stand out on the road.

Mechanical Spec

From a mechanical perspective, it seems the bike hasn't undergone significant modifications. The Shotgun 350 still utilizes Royal Enfield's proven 350 cc J-series single-cylinder engine. With the introduction of the Shotgun 650 to Royal Enfield's roster, the name suggests it's a factory-made model. Despite not being an official Royal Enfield release, it demonstrates the various ways in which Royal Enfield bikes can be customized.
