Royal Enfield is offering the new Meteor 350 in three variants in India- Fireball, Stellar, and Supernova. While you can read our in-depth review of the motorcycle in our expert review section, here we explain the differences and similarities between the Meteor 350’s variants to help you better understand which one to buy.
The Royal Enfield Meteor 350 Fireball is the entry-level model. Priced at Rs 1,75,825 it is the most affordable of the three variants. So the Fireball variant looks very similar to the Thunderbird 350X thanks to its blacked-out look and coloured fuel tank. Royal Enfield is offering a choice of two paints for the tank- Fireball Red and Fireball Yellow.
Royal Enfield has priced the mid-level Stellar version at Rs 1,81,342. And for the premium of around Rs 5,500 over the Fireball, you get chrome mirrors, chrome exhausts, chrome levers, and a 3D Royal Enfield badge on the fuel tank as well as a backrest with cushion. The Stellar is also offers in body coloured panels and a choice of three colours- Blue Metallic, Black Matte, and Red Metallic.
The top-spec Royal Enfield Meteor 350 Supernova will set you back by Rs 1,90,536. This is a hefty premium of Rs 9,194 over the Stellar version. However, the extra goodies on the Supernova like the machined alloy wheels, large windscreen up front, and brown seats add value to the package. Moreover, the two dual-tone paint schemes of brown and blue with black sets it apart from the other variants.
Nevertheless, all three variants of the Royal Enfield Meteor 350 use the same J-series, 348cc, single-cylinder engine that churns out 20.2bhp of power, and 27Nm of torque. The motorcycles are also fitted with features like LED DRL, semi-digital instrument cluster, and tripper navigation as standard. Even the suspension and braking hardware on all three variants are the same.
