Royal Enfield Meteor 2022

According to Royal Enfield Motorcycles

The Meteor represents the eternal essence of riding, the spirit of the cruise; with classic contours & timeless design cues, it is an easy thoroughbred cruiser, ready for the open highway and for meeting the challenges of urban commute with equal ease.

At the heart of the Meteor is the all-new air-oil cooled, 349cc, SOHC engine with a characteristic long stroke and electronic fuel injection system producing smooth tractable power & plenty of bottom-end torque. Continuing the legend of the easy singles, the new engine throbs with a visceral beat that is distinctively Royal Enfield.

Growing up in the 1980s meant that the lasting image of a motorcycle for me was a cruiser of some sort. It’s not that I was a ‘cruiser guy’, it’s just that when you see lots of something, that becomes the main frame of reference, and desire in this case! Evolving from a diet of bicycles into my late teens, I was quite mesmerised by the idea of a quintessential American style cruiser – and the first one that I actually saw in the flesh and instantly fell in love with was the Royal Enfield Citybike.

With an enhanced chassis setup, accessible riding position, advanced braking ability, high specification suspension and responsive power delivery, the Meteor is set to light up the world of cruising. The all-new chassis is stronger, stiffer and more durable and designed for straight-line stability, cornering and manoeuvrability without compromising on comfort.

The Meteor 350 features a Tripper™ navigation system, the first ever in a Royal Enfield. Powered by Google Maps and the Royal Enfield App that connects smartphones with the motorcycle through Bluetooth. Tripper™ is a sophisticated navigation solution, that indicates directions through an intuitive display system with an additional USB charging port on the motorcycle.
