Royal Enfield is the oldest motorcycle brand in the world. It is popular among motorcyclists all around the world and there is a huge fan base for these motorcycles here in India. One of the popular motorcycle from Royal Enfield is Classic 350. Royal Enfield is popular among buyers for its retro looks. Royal Enfield recently launched an all-new motorcycle Meteor 350 in the market and like other RE motorcycles, it also received an over whelming response from customer. It is a cruiser motorcycle that competes with bikes like Jawa and recently launched Honda CB350 H’Ness. Here we have a new render video where an artist reimagines Meteor 350 cruiser motorcycle.
The video has been uploaded by SRK Designs on their Youtube channel. The artist basically makes minor changes to the Meteor to enhance the overall cruiser look of the motorcycle. For this, he chose the entry level variant of Meteor 350 Fireball. He starts by modifying the rake of the bike. It now more inclined and this would result in increasing the turning radius of the motorcycle. Other than the rake, the stock handle bar on the Meteor is also replaced. The new handle bar is giving it a proper cruiser vibe.
Moving to the seat, the split seat on the Meteor is replaced with a single piece unit. The rider has a low slung seating position whereas the pillion sits a bit higher. The rear of the motorcycle has also been changed and the wheelbase has also been increased. The rear gets Harley Davidson inspired tail with Meteor tail lights and turn indicators on it.
Apart from all these changes, the artist has also reimagined the Meteor 350 in a new shade. It now gets a black paint job with golden pinstriping on it. The Meteor badging on the side panel has been completely removed and it only comes with RE badge on the fuel tank.
Royal Enfield Meteor 350 is an all-new motorcycle and is introduced as a replacement to the Thunderbird and Thunderbird X. Meteor also has a retro design like other RE motorcycles and the design does remind us of Thunderbird from some angles. Royal Enfield Meteor is a new motorcycle and gets new frame and engine. The engine uses a counter balancer shaft which reduces the vibrations from the engine and improves refinement. The Meteor 350’s is extremely refined in comparison to the one seen in RE Bullet and Classic series motorcycles.
The Meteor 350 motorcycle comes with a tripper meter which shows turn by turn navigation on the instrument cluster. This feature is expected to be introduced in more RE products in future. Royal Enfield’s current flagship Interceptor 650 and Continental GT 650 will be getting a much more advanced version of tripper meter which will be showing phone notifications as well.
Meteor 350 is powered by a 349-cc, single cylinder, air-cooled, fuel injected engine that generates 20.4 Ps and 27 Nm of peak torque. It is mated to a 5-speed gearbox and is available in three trims – Fireball, Stellar and Supernova. Prices for the RE Meteor 350 start at Rs 1.75 lakh, ex-showroom and go up to Rs 1.91 lakh, ex-showroom.
