Upcoming Royal Enfield Meteor 350 to make 20.5hp

7th Sep 2020 1:40 pm

The Royal Enfield Meteor 350 will make more power, but less torque than the Thunderbird 350.

Leaked images of what appears to be a brochure reveals important information, including power and torque figures of the upcoming Royal Enfield Meteor 350.

  • The Meteor 350 will make 20.5hp and 27Nm of torque.

  • It is also expected to have a revised gearbox.

  • Tripper Navigation system will work via a smartphone.

Royal Enfield is having a hard time keeping the upcoming Meteor 350 a secret. First, we got to see a number of leaked spy shots of the motorcycles on test and now we are getting important information from leaked brochures. 

The first brochure leak revealed that the Meteor 350 will be available in three variants – Fireball, Stellar and Supernova. These pictures gave us a good idea about how the bikes are differently equipped and even disclosed the colour options.

The newest set of images however, gives us an idea of the mechanical side of things. Powering the Meteor 350 will be a 350cc engine that is expected to make 20.5hp and 27Nm of torque. For reference, the UCE Thunderbird 350 made 19.8hp and 28Nm of torque. The document also says that the engine will still be a long-stroke unit that will continue to feature the thumping exhaust sound.

Additionally, the leaked document also suggests that the Meteor 350 will use a revised gearbox. It is said to have a lighter clutch pull and smoother shifts. While the previous leak did give us information about the new Tripper Navigation feature, the latest pictures now confirm that it will be a Bluetooth-enabled GPS system that’s similar to what we’ve seen on TVS’ products. Similarly, the brochure now confirms that the Meteor 350 will get a gear position indicator on its digi-analogue instrument cluster.

The Royal Enfield Meteor 350 is expected to go on sale towards the end of September or in the beginning of October 2020.
