The images of the upcoming Royal Enfield Meteor 350 Fireball have once again surfaced online. Based on the new J1D platform, the Meteor 350 Fireball is likely to be a replacement of the Thunderbird 350 motorcycle. One of the images also shows the price tag of Rs 1,68,550, which includes some after market accessories. When launched, the new Royal Enfield Meteor 350 Fireball motorcycle will compete against the likes of Benelli Imperiale 400 and the Jawa Forty-Two in its segment.
The upcoming Meteor 350 Fireball will feature a round headlamp cluster with LED DRLs, a twin-pod instrument panel, circular tail light, and a stepped seat. Like the Royal Enfield Thunderbird X, this particular motorcycle is likely to be offered in bright colored options. The alloy wheels also get pinstripes that will match the color of the fuel tank. A tinted flyscreen worth Rs. 1,750 is likely to be offered as an optional accessory.
Suspension duties will be taken care by telescopic front forks and dual shock absorbers at the rear. While the brakes would comprise of discs upfront and towards the rear, assisted by dual-channel ABS as standard.
Under the frame, the motorcycle will be powered by a 349 cc single-cylinder engine sourced from Royal Enfield Bullet Classic 350. The unit equipped on the Meteor 350 Fireball will be a fuel-injection upgraded to BS6 Emission Norms. Mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox, the engine will produce 19.8 bhp power output and 28 Nm of peak torque.
