Meteor 350 inherits its name from a Royal Enfield motorcycle of the 1950’s.
Launched at the end of 1952, the Meteor was a magnificent touring motorcycle
with a reputation that has stood the test of time. The new Royal Enfield Meteor
350 easy-cruiser, carries Royal Enfield’s signature styling but with many
with the launch of the Meteor 350 comes the Royal Enfield’s Make It Yours - MiY
- initiative, an inventive and unique motorcycle personalisation tool. New
Meteor 350 owners can tap into thousands of possible personalisation
combinations when they order their motorcycle via the Royal Enfield App, on the
website or at a dealership. In addition to the 7 standard colourways, under 3
editions, MiY allows an additional 8 colourway options for customers.
Meteor has been designed and developed by teams of designers and engineers
based at Royal Enfield’s two technical centres, in Chennai, Tamil Nadu, and
Bruntingthorpe, UK. With a 349cc air-oil cooled single-cylinder engine, the
Meteor generates 20.2 bhp and 27 Nm of torque at 4000 rpm.
Meteor has been designed with a balancer shaft. The motorcycle has retained the
essential Royal Enfield ‘thump’. The throttle response of the electronic fuel
injection has been optimised for dependable starting and effortless, linear
acceleration. 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
for easy gear changes in built-up traffic.
Meteor 350 twin downtube spline frame has been designed to inspire confidence
in the twisties, be rock-solid on the highway and easily manoeuvrable on busy
city streets. It has a low seat height and centre of gravity. It further comes
with 41mm forks with 130mm of travel and twin tube emulsion shock absorbers
with 6-step adjustable preload at the rear. For the bonafide cruiser
experience, the footpegs are forward-mounted, with a heel and toe gearshift.
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. It is paired via the Royal Enfield App to
the rider’s smartphone.
Meteor 350 Fireball, available in vibrant red or yellow single colour fuel
tanks and matching wheel rim lining, features blacked-out cycle parts and
engine, which is finished with machined fins. The Stellar, with contemporary
red, blue or matt black tanks and matching body components, comes with chrome
handlebars and exhaust plus a comfy backrest for the pillion. The
top-of-the-line Supernova, finished in dual-tone blue or brown with matching
body parts, is detailed with machined wheels, a choice of premium seats and a
editions are fitted with alloy wheels and tubeless tyres as standard, giving

comfort and an authentic cruiser appearance, a 100/90 - 19 tyre is used on the
front and a 140/70 - 17 at the rear. It has 300mm front and 270mm rear discs
and dual channel ABS.
Meteor 350’s head and tail lights combine the clean, contemporary look of LEDs
with the efficiency and timeless appeal of a well-sorted Halogen headlamp.
Uncluttered handlebar controls and switchgear are premium quality, with rotary
power and lighting switches giving a gentle nod to the past.
three Meteor variants come with a new instrument cluster which combines the
timeless elegance of a ‘dancing needle’ analogue speedometer with the
functionality of an LCD display for essentials such as gear indicator, fuel
gauge, clock and trip meter. A USB port is discreetly mounted below the
handlebars to enable charging on the go.
Meteor 350 is supported by a suite of Genuine Motorcycle Accessories, designed
and developed for it, which can be added

as the passenger backrest, touring screens, luggage options, robust engine and
sump guards, as well as classic styling embellishments, including a variety of
