Royal Enfield Himalayan & Meteor Price Reduced – One Feature Removed
Royal Enfiled has recently made two major changes to its Himalayan and Meteor motorcycles. Like all other automakers, Royal Enfield is facing difficulties due to the scarcity of semiconductor chips and, hence, has decided to temporarily discontinue the tripper navigation feature as standard on its Himalayan and Meteor 350 models. However, you can still have this option with these bikes, but you will have to opt for the Make-It-Yours programme.
Speaking of the decision, Royal Enfield stated, “The ongoing global semiconductor shortage continues to pose a challenge for the automotive industry at large. We have decided to optimise the use of semiconductor chips by making a temporary decision to shift the Tripper Navigation device feature as an additional, plug-and-play option on the Meteor 350 and the Royal Enfield Himalayan, via the Make It Yours (MiY option) on the RE App. Consumers will have the choice of opting for their motorcycles with or without the Tripper device.”
Secondly, the brand has reduced the price of these bikes, which is the result of removing the tripper navigation as standard. Both the Royal Enfield Himalayan and Meteor 350 have had their prices reduced by Rs 5,000. On the other hand, RE has increased the booking amount for its motorcycles. Earlier, you had to pay Rs 10,000 as a token amount, but now you will have to pay Rs 20,000 for the same.
Moreover, this decision is effective from May 1, 2022. Recently, the two-wheeler maker also updated the colour scheme of the Meteor 350 with the addition of three new shades, including green and blue for the base Fireball variant and red for the top-end Supernova variant.
