- New Meteor 350 to start sales in US from May
- Starts at $4399
Royal Enfield will start selling the Meteor 350 in United States starting next month. This motorcycle will be the most affordable Royal Enfield that will be on sale in US.
According to the company’s American website, the Meteor 350 has been priced at $4399 (Rs 3.27 lakh) for the base variant, $4499 (Rs 3.35 lakh) for the Stellar model and $4599(Rs 3.42 lakh) for the top-most Supernova model. This motorcycle will be sold through the available showrooms in US.
The Meteor 350 is Royal Enfield’s first product based on its new J platform which will be utilised for multiple future models by the brand. Firstly, its 349cc, single-cylinder motor is a heavily revised version of the Classic 350’s engine. Although it churns out nearly the same power and torque at 20.2bhp and 27Nm, the new motor is much smoother and feels torquier. As opposed to the single cradle frame of the older REs, the Meteor is based on a new double downtube chassis. With a Bluetooth-enabled instrument cluster, the bikes is also impressive on the modernity front.
We are expecting two more motorcycles this year that has been built on the Meteor’s platform, and we expect these motorcycles will also be sold in US from next year.
