Royal Enfield has updated the lineup of its 350cc cruiser motorcycle Meteor for 2022. The updates in the Royal Enfield Meteor are limited to the new colour options. At the same time, Royal Enfield has also used this opportunity to revise the prices of all three iterations of the Meteor.
What are the new colour updates?
Royal Enfield has introduced three new colour options for the Meteor. The new colour options are ‘Fireball Blue’ and ‘Fireball Matt Green’ in the entry-level Fireball version of the motorcycle and a ‘Supernova Red’ in the top-spec Supernova version of the motorcycle. Meanwhile, the mid-spec Stellar version receives no new colour option.
With this, the total count of colour schemes for the Royal Enfield Meteor has gone up to ten options. While the entry-level Fireball version now comes in Fireball Blue, Fireball Matt Green, Fireball Red and Fireball Yellow, the top-spec Supernova version can be had in one of the three colour options, namely Supernova Red, Supernova Blue and Supernova Brown. The mid-spec Stellar version continues to come in Stellar Red, Stellar Blue and Stellar Black colour options.
The bookings for all these colour options of Royal Enfield Meteor can be made either at any of the authorized dealer outlets of Royal Enfield or on the authorized website of Royal Enfield.
Royal Enfield Meteor gets a price hike
Royal Enfield has also introduced a marginal hike for all the three versions of the Meteor. While the Fireball version is now priced at Rs 2,05,844, the Supernova version is priced at Rs 2,22,061. The Stellar version is priced in the middle of the two other versions at Rs 2,11,924. Earlier, the prices of the three versions were Rs 2,01,620 for the Fireball version, Rs 2,07,700 for the Stellar version and Rs 2,17,836 for the Supernova version.
Royal Enfield Meteor 350
The Royal Enfield Meteor came in as a replacement for the ageing Thunderbird and retains the same essence of a cruiser motorcycle with subtle updates to the design and a new-generation engine. The new Meteor 350 is available in three versions – Fireball, Stellar and Supernova.
The Fireball version comes with solid colour options, 2-D logos on the fuel tank and side body panels and colour-coded stripes on the sides of alloy wheels. The Stellar version misses out on colour-coded stripes but gets a pillion backrest, chrome rearview mirrors, silver-finished levers and 3-D logos on the fuel tank. The Supernova version looks the most premium of the three, as it receives a transparent windshield, dual-tone alloy wheels and chrome finish for the turn indicators over the features available in the Stellar version.
All three iterations of the Royal Enfield Meteor come with a four-stroke, single-cylinder, air-cooled, 349cc J-Series engine, which produces 20.2 bhp of maximum power and 27 Nm of maximum torque. The Meteor was also the first motorcycle from Royal Enfield to receive the Bluetooth-compatible Tripper navigation system, which is available as standard across the entire range.
