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 City bike.
A New Heart
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.
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.
