Royal Enfield Meteor 350 Spotted Undisguised Again: The much-awaited 350cc Royal Enfield Meteor cruiser motorcycle has been spotted testing again. Earlier, the Thunderbird 350’s replacement was expected to be launched in April 2020 but due to the lockdown, the brand had halted all the operations back at its manufacturing units from March 23, 2020, considering the welfare of its employees. Royal Enfield recently resumed the manufacturing operations at its Oragadam plant which is based near Chennai and now the Meteor 350 is expected to launch in the Indian market very soon.
The upcoming Royal Enfield Meteor 350 will come equipped with a fuel-injected engine complying to the new BS6 emission norms. The front fascia of the motorcycle has been adorned with a round halogen headlight unit mated to LED DRLs. The teardrop fuel tank has been taken from the current-gen Thunderbird 350 variant while the split seat setup adds to its authenticity. RE Meteor 350 is expected to be launched in India at a starting price tag of around NR 1.70 lakh.
Coming to the new features, the Meteor cruiser is equipped with a single-pod instrument cluster with an LCD panel. In addition to this, the instrument console also features a notification unit surrounding the same. The brand has further equipped a smaller unit adjacent to the LCD screen though its functionality is not known as of yet. In terms of the overall profile, the Royal Enfield Meteor features identical design language as that of the Thunderbird X while featuring a Meteor 350 badging on the toolbox.
