Royal Enfield Meteor 350 Review

Detailed Review by Maxabout Team

Introduction

Whenever we hear the name Royal Enfield, the bikes of the old days come to mind, which was made for long distances. In the recent past, Royal Enfield has faced stiff competition from competitors for its cruiser line-up, prompting this segment-leading brand to launch the Royal Enfield Meteor 350 in the market in response.

Royal Enfield's cruiser lineup previously had Thunderbird's reign, which was introduced in 2002. It has brought in several facelift avatars over the years. However, the Thunderbird lineup was discontinued after the arrival of the BS6 emission standard. The company retired the name Thunderbird, and 18-year-old production was discontinued.

This decision was taken because, due to this, the company could only sell cruiser bikes in the international market. Royal Enfield wanted to bring a new cruiser bike to the market with a new name, a modern design and technology. As a result, the Meteor 350 was brought to the market; it has to be brought to the country as well as the international market.

Design and Style of Royal Enfield Meteor 350

The design of the Royal Enfield Meteor 350 has been kept the same as the cruiser bike. As soon as you look at the bike, you start to remember your old long journeys or the journeys ahead. The Royal Enfield Meteor 350 has a curved fuel tank, attractive body panels, circular headlamps, tail lamps, turn indicators and chrome in many places to give it a cruiser bike look.

Starting from the front, the supernova has a circular halogen headlamp with an integrated LED DRL ring. By the way, it would have been even better if there was an LED unit, although the throw of this halogen lamp is best for high and low beams. Its LED DRL could have been even brighter. The bike has a large 13.6-inch windscreen, which has been named the "Touring Voyager" by Royal Enfield. This windscreen can be adjusted a little for height, but this process will require additional Ellen's tools. In the front, a front fender is connected to the front wheel, as seen in other cruiser bikes.

Talking about the side part of the Royal Enfield Meteor 350, the 15-litre fuel tank is given in a dual-tone finish. On this bike, the supernova brown paint was given in the scheme. Along with this, the engine has been given a brushed aluminum finish on the cylinder head, the Meteor 350 badge on the side cover, and a large seat for the rider and passenger, as well as the backrest. Talking about the badge, the Royal Enfield Meteor 350 has a new "Royal Enfield" tank badge which is kept in dual-tone black and chrome. It has the most different Royal Enfield Meteor 350 chrome exhaust, which further enhances the look of the bike.

Due to the two-wheeler rules of India, all the guards have also been given this bike. A grab handle has been provided on both sides behind the rider seat where the luggage can be tied for a long journey. The back has a circular tail lamp and a turn signal indicator, which makes the look of the bike even more attractive. A small lamp is also given on the rear number plate.
