Royal Enfield is all set to launch the Meteor 350 in September this year. The motorcycle will be replacing the now discontinued BS4 compliant Thunderbird 350 siblings. However, it will be slightly more expensive than the Thunderbird 350. We can expect the price to be around Rs 1.75 Lakhs (ex-showroom) when launched in the country. Several spy images & videos of the all-new Meteor 350 have surfaced online in the past. Furthermore, the two-wheeler has been spied doing test rides in the production-ready format on multiple occasions. Recently, the brochure of the Meteor 350 was leaked online ahead of the official launch.
From the leaked images, we can easily make out about the variants, color options, and features of the upcoming Meteor 350. The bike will be offered in three variants namely Fireball, Stellar, and Supernova. We have seen spy shots of the Fireball variant doing test runs on many occasions in the past. Talking about the color options, the bike will be available in a total of seven color options namely Fireball Yellow, Fireball Red, Stellar Red metallic, Stellar Black matte, Stellar Blue metallic, Supernova Brown dual-tone and Supernova Blue dual-tone.
The leaked images of the brochure also reveal the cosmetic highlights of the upcoming bike. The Meteor Fireball variant gets blacked-out components, body graphics, single-color fuel tank, machined cooling fins, and colored wheel rim. Talking about the Supernova variant, it gets machined alloy wheels, premium seat upholstery, flyscreen, and chrome turn signals. The bike also gets a dual-tone paint scheme. Finally, coming to the third Stellar variant, it sports body-colored components, premium badges and chrome elements along with a backrest. All three variants get tripper navigation as standard.
Mechanically, the upcoming Meteor 350 will be powered by a 349cc single-cylinder engine that produces 19.8 bhp power output and 28 Nm of peak torque while being mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox. The engine will come equipped with a single overhead camshaft (SOHC) and an electronic fuel-injection system and is likely to be sourced from Royal Enfield Bullet Classic 350.
