Royal Enfield has launched the much-awaited Meteor 350 in India today at a starting price of Rs 1.76 Lakh (ex-showroom). The launch which was scheduled to be earlier was delayed multiple times due to the nationwide health crisis. Ahead of this, after leaked documents and spy shots that gave us an idea about the motorcycle’s design and price, the most recent one gave us a glimpse of its variants. The new Meteor is available in three variants and here are variant wise pricing -
Royal Enfield Meteor 350 Fireball - Rs 1,75,825
Royal Enfield Meteor 350 Stellar - Rs 1,81,342
Royal Enfield Meteor 350 Supernova - Rs 1,90,536
All prices ex-showroom
On offer will be three variants with the standard Fireball variant kicking things off. This variant will be available in two colours – yellow and red. Features on the bike includes a Tripper Navigation, which we assume is a Bluetooth-enabled GPS system, similar to the one we saw on TVS products. This variant is also void of any chrome bits and will make do with a sticker decal instead of a 3D badge.
Placed above the Fireball is the Stellar variant which will be available in three colours including dark red, dark blue and matte black. Its feature list includes the Tripper Navigation system, backrest, along with chrome exhaust system and handlebar.
The top-run Supernova will come with two dual-tone colour schemes – brown-black and light blue-black. In addition to the features on the Stellar, the Supernova will also benefit from the machined finish on the wheels, a different seat cover, chrome indicators and a windscreen.
The motorcycle is powered by a 349cc air-oil cooled single-cylinder engine that generates 20.2 bhp and 27 Nm of torque at 4000 rpm. Designed with a balancer shaft, the new platform gives a smooth and well-mannered ride experience, while great care has been taken to retain that essential Royal Enfield ‘thump’. The throttle response of the electronic fuel injection has been optimised for dependable starting and effortless, linear acceleration. For versatility, the new engine has a 5-speed gearbox, with fifth gear being an overdrive for stress-free and economical highway cruising, and a 7-plate clutch.
Making its debut on the Meteor 350 is the new TBT (Turn-By-Turn) navigation pod, known as the Royal Enfield Tripper, a highly focused navigation display device for real-time directions, built with Google Maps Platform. The Tripper displays the best route to reach a destination using Google Maps’ two-wheeler navigation, a first for any Indian made motorcycle, paired via the Royal Enfield App to the rider’s smartphone.
