About Royal Enfield Meteor 350 

The Royal Enfiled Meteor 350 is the first bike that has been built on the new 'J' platform. Unlike other RE motorcycles, the Meteor will receive many modern elements and it will be the most feature-packed bike from the brand. 

The Meteor 350's specification and features details were dripped some time ago and according to the leaked documents, the new RE cruiser will be introduced in a total of three variants: Fireball, Stellar, and Supernova. The Fireball will be the base trim of the Meteor 350 and will feature an all-black theme with color-coded fuel tank and rim stickers.

On the other hand, the top Supernova might additionally get premium seat covers, chrome garnished side indicators and a large windshield.

The RE Meteor 350 will be powered by a new 350 cc, single-cylinder, air-oil cooled, long-stroke engine that churns out 20.2bhp of maximum power and 27Nm of peak torque. The engine is expected to get a new 6-speed transmission with a smoother and lighter clutch operation. We expect the Meteor 350 motorcycle to be more refined and clean than the existing 350cc RE bikes.
