Royal Enfield Meteor 350 US launch will strengthen the company’s lineup in America. It will join Interceptor 650, Continental GT 650 and Himalayan…
Royal Enfield’s next generation motorcycle onslaught in the entry level 350cc segment started with the Meteor 350. Promoted as an easy cruiser, Meteor 350 is doing a fairly good business. More importantly, it is a remarkable update from the older 350 platform which spawns the top sellers like Classic 350 and others.
In a latest update, the Chennai based maker is taking the Meteor 350 to the American market next month. Meteor 350 has been launched at a price tag of $4399 (3.28 Lac INR) for the Fireball versions, $4499 (3.36 Lac INR) for the Stellar versions and $4599 (3.43 Lac INR) for the Supernova versions. All the seven colors – Fireball Yellow, Fireball Red, Stellar Black, Stellar Red, Stellar Blue, Supernova Brown
Supernova Blue are on offer. Sibling Himalayan is sold at $4999 (about 3.73 Lac in INR) in that country.
The American spec Meteor 350 continues to be powered by the same, 349cc, single cylinder, air-oil cooled engine that is capable of producing 20.2 bhp of peak power at 6100 rpm and 19.9 Ft/lbs (27 Nm) of max torque at 4000 rpm. It weighs 421 lbs (191 kg) and has a fuel capacity of 3.96 gallons (15 liter). It will be the first motorcycle in the Royal Enfield’s portfolio to introduce Tripper Navigation in USA.
