Royal Enfield Meteor 350 spied in blue shade; launch soon
The Royal Enfield Meteor 350, adorned in a new blue shade, has been spied at a dealership, hinting at its imminent launch in India. The paintwork will offer a blue-colored fuel tank, while the side panels, engine casing, and fenders will be finished in black. Also, its black alloy wheels will have yellow rim tapes. Notably, other features and mechanicals will remain unchanged.
- The Royal Enfield Meteor 350 is a popular cruiser bike in India and offers good looks. By offering a new color option called Fireball Blue (probably), the company wants to boost the vehicle's sales in the Indian market.
- The upcoming model is likely to be priced competitively and will raise the rivalry in the segment to a great extent.
The Royal Enfield Meteor 350 has a teardrop-shaped fuel tank, split-style seats, a lengthy exhaust, and a circular headlight as well as mirrors. The bike packs an all-LED setup for lighting, a Bluetooth-enabled semi-digital instrument console, and rides on alloy wheels. It can store 15 liters of fuel and has a ground clearance of 170mm and a wheelbase of 1,400mm.
The Royal Enfield Meteor 350 draws power from a 349cc, single-cylinder, 4-stroke engine that generates a maximum power of 20.12hp and a peak torque of 27Nm. The mill is linked to a 5-speed gearbox.
To ensure the safety of the rider, the Royal Enfield Meteor 350 is equipped with disc brakes on both the front and rear wheels, along with dual-channel ABS for improved handling on the roads. Suspension duties on the motorbike are taken care of by 41mm telescopic forks on the front side and twin-tube shock absorbers on the rear end.
In India, the Royal Enfield Meteor 350 starts at Rs. 2.01 lakh and goes up to Rs. 2.17 lakh (all prices, ex-showroom, Delhi). The new model with blue paintwork is expected to bear a similar price figure, too.
