Royal Enfield Meteor 350 launched in Nepal | Price and Specifications

After a long wait, Royal Enfield launched its newest addition in the 350cc category in Nepal–the Meteor. Vivek Automobiles Pvt. Ltd, the official distributor of RE motorcycles in Nepal, has unveiled the Meteor 350 here. The Meteor bikes sold in Nepal is available in three variants and seven colour options.

The Meteor is a completely new motorcycle model that replaces the ThunderbirdX. It is the first motorcycle to come out of Royal Enfield’s new J-platform. Its rollout marked, in a long time, a new and updated engine offering from the manufacturer in the 350cc segment. Let us look at what this new cruiser has in store.

The Meteor 350 is available in three different variants: Fireball, Stellar, and Supernova. Fireball, being the base variant, does not get any accessories, only plain black alloy wheels. It does not get a windshield or a passenger backrest and the logo on the tank is just a sticker job. The Fireball is available in single-tone red and yellow colour options. The mid-range variant, the Stellar, gets a chrome exhaust along with a pillion backrest. Also, this variant gets 3D logos on the tank for a more premium feel. The Stellar is available in grey, maroon, and blue colour options. The top variant, Supernova, comes equipped with a wide windscreen and gets diamond-cut alloy wheels along with a pillion backrest and chrome exhaust. The Supernova is available in dual-tone brown and sky-blue colour options, with contrasting treatment for the seats.

The Meteor carries over the cruiser styling cues from the ThunderbirdX with a circular headlamp with LED DRL, a peanut-shaped fuel tank, a pulled-back handlebar, a swooping rear fender, and an LED taillight. The motorcycle gets a twin-pod instrument cluster that is a mix of analogue and digital, with features such as Tripper Navigation and Bluetooth connectivity. 

Even though the Meteor 350 is a replacement for the ThunderbirdX, the two are completely different from each other. The Meteor gets a newly updated engine with a new chassis and suspension setup. The motorcycle comes equipped with a brand new oil-cooled, 4 stroke, 349cc engine with EFI that is capable of producing 20.2 bhp of maximum power and 27 Nm of peak torque. The engine comes mated to a standard 5-speed constant mesh gearbox.     

As for the suspensions, the Meteor gets telescopic forks at the front with a 6-step adjustable twin shock at the rear. The motorcycle rides on 19-inch alloy wheels with a 100 section tyre at the front and 17-inch alloy wheels with a 140 section tyre at the rear. Braking is handled by a 300 mm disc at the front with a twin-piston floating caliper and a 270 mm disc at the rear with a single-piston floating caliper. The Meteor also comes with options for dual-channel ABS. The new Meteor 350 faces competition from Jawa, Honda H’ness CB350 and Benelli Imperiale 400.
