Read our Royal Enfield Meteor 350 Review here…


Around town the tight turning circle comes in very handy for feet-up U-turns, while out in the countryside and handling is engaging and fun.

The Meteor 350 got its name from an older iconic Royal Enfield model from the 1950s. Launched at the end of 1952, the original Meteor was a touring motorcycle with a reputation that has stood the test of time. The new Meteor 350 has been dubbed an ‘easy-cruiser’ by Royal Enfield.

It is a low power, simple bike, designed for low speed cruising and relaxed riding. With a top speed only just making our national limit and a modest going power-to-weight ratio, we headed into the test skeptical about whether the 350 can handle Australian conditions and live up the the tag of a cruiser. However, the little single impressed us in the end… It is a fun and capable little machine.

 

TECH TALK, METEOR 350

With a 349cc air-oil cooled single-cylinder engine, the Meteor generates 20.2bhp and 27Nm of torque at 4000rpm. Designed with a balancer shaft, the new platform gives a smooth and well-mannered ride experience, while great care has been taken to retain that essential Royal Enfield ‘thump’.



The throttle response of the electronic fuel injection has been optimised for dependable starting and effortless, linear acceleration. For versatility, the new engine has a five-speed gearbox, with fifth gear being an overdrive for stress-free and economical highway cruising (top speed is 115km/h), and a seven-plate clutch for easy gear changes in built-up traffic.

The Meteor 350’s twin downtube spline frame has, state RE, been designed to inspire confidence in the twisties, be rock-solid on the highway and easily manoeuvrable on busy city streets. The low seat height and centre of gravity in combination with its inherent strength and rigidity results in the optimal motorcycle for the urban rider who seeks adventure on long getaways according to RE.Sure-footed handling and luxurious comfort are aided by 41mm forks with 130mm of travel and twin tube emulsion shock absorbers with six-step adjustable preload at the rear. For the bonafide cruiser experience, the footpegs are forward-mounted, with a heel and toe gearshift.

Vigorous dyno and chassis development went into making the new Meteor 350 chassis set-up.

Making its debut on the Meteor 350 is the new TBT (Turn-By-Turn) navigation pod, known as the Royal Enfield Tripper, a highly focused navigation display device for real time directions, built with Google Maps Platform. The Tripper displays the best route to reach a destination using Google Maps’ two-wheeler navigation, a first for any Indian made motorcycle. Paired via the Royal Enfield App to the rider’s smartphone, the Tripper is simplicity itself, clearly and efficiently giving the required level of information whilst remaining  discreet and unintrusive.

All editions are fitted with alloy wheels and tubeless tyres as standard, giving riders convenience and peace of mind, especially on long journeys. For added comfort and an authentic cruiser appearance, a 100/90 – 19in tyre is used on the front and a 140/70 – 17in at the rear. Braking is the most resolute on a Royal Enfield single to date, with 300mm front and 270mm rear discs and dual channel ABS.



All three Meteor variants come with a new instrument cluster, which combines the timeless elegance of a ‘dancing needle’ analogue speedometer with the functionality of an LCD display for essentials such as gear indicator, fuel gauge, clock and tripmeter. Last but not least, a USB port is discreetly mounted below the handlebars to enable charging on the go.

The Meteor 350 is supported by a suite of Genuine Motorcycle Accessories (GMA), designed and developed  for it, which can be added when ordering the motorcycle. The range includes functional accessories, such as the passenger backrest, touring screens, luggage options, robust engine and sump guards, as well as classic styling embellishments, including a variety of brushed stainless steel and black powder-coated slip-on silencer options and beautifully crafted touring seats, all of which come with a three-year warranty.
