Royal Enfield Motorcycle has just launched its All-New Meteor 350 cruiser bike in the country. The 350cc cruiser motorcycle is offered in three variants namely Fireball, Stellar, and Supernova. The base Meteor 350 Fireball variant is priced at Rs 1.75 lakh (ex-showroom). While the top-end Supernova trim costs Rs 1.90 lakh (ex-showroom). For the launch of New Meteor 350, CEAT tyres has partnered with Royal Enfield Motorcycle. CEAT will officially be providing Zoom plus range of tubeless tyres for all variants of the new bike.
Royal Enfield Meteor 350 is offered with 19-inch alloy wheel shod with 100/90 57P tubeless tyre in the front and a 17-inch alloy wheel shod with 140/70 66P tubeless rubber at the rear. The Zoom plus range of tyres are said to provide amazing riding comfort on the highway. Furthermore, the design of the tyres enables the rider to maintain balance while cornering. Also, the tread pattern on the tyre provides excellent grip on both wet and dry surfaces. CEAT tyres have associated with Royal Enfield in the past as well. The company has supplied tyres for Bullet Classic 350, Classic 500, and the Himalayan prior to this announcement.
“CEAT is absolutely thrilled to be the official tyre supplier of the Royal Enfield Meteor 350. Our long-standing association with them reiterates our commitment to provide superior quality products. With time, our partnership with Royal Enfield has only grown stronger and we are confident that it will continue to be fruitful even in the future,” commented Amit Tolani, Chief Marketing Officer, CEAT Tyres on their partnership.
Mechanically, the new Meteor 350 draws its power from a brand new J-series 349cc, single-cylinder, four-stroke, air-oil cooled, fuel-injected engine. While being linked to a constant mesh gearbox, the bike generates 20.2 bhp power @6100 rpm and 27 Nm torque @4000 rpm. The engine comes equipped with a primary balancer shaft that further helps to reduce vibrations. The two-wheeler is based on twin downtube spine frame. Its suspension setup comprises 41mm telescopic forks with 130mm travel upfront and twin-tube emulsion shock absorbers with 6-step adjustable pre-load towards the rear. Braking duties are handled by a 300 mm disc with a twin-piston floating calliper up front and a 270mm disc single-piston floating calliper towards the rear as it comes equipped with dual-channel ABS.
