Details of the upcoming Royal Enfield Meteor 350 have been leaked. Power figures of the new engine, and other features as well as details have now been leaked as we inch closer to the launch date of the motorcycle. The Royal Enfield Meteor 350 is one of the most-awaited motorcycles in recent times.
Built on a new platform, powered by a new engine and equipped with modern features, it brings with it a new direction for Royal Enfield. More recently, the variants, colours, and features of the motorcycle were leaked. The leaked information revealed that the motorcycle would be made available in three variants with small differences.
Now though, more information about the upcoming motorcycle has been leaked through images of what looks like the official webpage for the new product. The first and foremost of these are the power output figures. We already knew that the Royal Enfield Meteor 350 would be powered by a brand-new air-cooled, 346cc, single-cylinder engine.
Now we know that it has a maximum power output of 20.2bhp and a peak torque output of 27Nm. These figures are 0.4bhp higher and 1Nm lower than the output of the model currently on sale. While the new engine might not exactly be a great improvement in terms of outright power, it certainly is an improvement in terms of refinement.
For the first time, a 350cc Royal Enfield motorcycle will be powered by a SOHC (Single Overhead Camshaft) engine. This should prove to be a huge step-up in terms of refinement, especially when compared to the current pushrod system.
The images also indicate that the transmission is brand-new, including the clutch and gearbox, which should also contribute to an increase in refinement. These new leaked images have also given us a clearer look at the much-talked-about ‘Tripper’ inbuilt navigation system. It includes an analogue-digital instrument cluster, with a small, circular, full-colour TFT screen.
The Royal Enfield Meteor 350 is expected to be launched in three variants — Fireball, Stellar and Supernova. It is expected to be launched later this year.
