A new leaked brochure has completely revealed all the technical specs of the upcoming Royal Enfield Meteor 350 inlcuding its suspension and braking components, fuel tank capacity, features, engine specs and much more.
The excitement and anticipation around the upcoming Royal Enfield Meteor 350 has been unending, although the series of spy shots and leaked brochures do not seem to have any ending. It has almost become the Mahindra Thar of the motorcycle world. A couple of leaked brochures previously revealed the variants and color options for the Meteor 350 and then the specifications of the new 350cc engine as well. Now, there’s a new brochure that has been leaked on the internet and it completely reveals all technical specs of the Royal Enfield Meteor 350 ahead of its launch.
As we can see in this image above, the complete technical specs of the Royal Enfield Meteor 350 have been revealed through this leaked brochure. The Royal Enfield Meteor 350 will gets a 15-liter fuel tank where the old Thunderbird got a 20-liter fuel tank. The new Meteor 350 uses 41mm telescopic forks at the front while the rear gets 6-step adjustable twin springs. The motorcycle rides on 19-inch front wheels shod with 100/90 tire while the rear gets a 17-inch alloy wheel with a 140/70 tire. For braking, there’s a 300mm disc up front while the rear gets a 270mm disc, with dual-channel ABS as standard.
The new Meteor 350 will also feature smartphone connectivity via Bluetooth, a first for any Royal Enfield motorcycle. The motorcycle will come with twin instrument pods. One of them will be a traditional analog dial featuring your speedometer while the other pod is a little smaller and features a TFT colour display offering navigation details. The smaller unit will be called as a Tripper Navigation Unit. The Meteor 350 also features a circular halogen headlamp with LED DRLs, LED tail lamps, forward-set footpegs, lower seat height and raised handlebar.
The Royal Enfield Meteor 350 will be powered by a BS6-compliant 350cc 4-stroke single cylinder engine that produces 20.1hp and 27Nm of torque. To put it into perspective, the power has only gone up by 1.1hp over the current BS6-compliant 346cc UCE engine while torque is actually 1Nm less. That frankly might be disappointing to many. The current-gen UCE motor uses ancient pushrod technology and it was hoped that the J platform’s modern SOHC architecture would certainly produce better numbers.
The Meteor 350 will be available in three variants – the base Fireball, the mid-spec Stellar and the top-spec Supernova. Well, these variants are mainly aesthetic and visual differentiators more than anything else. Each variant gets a different paint scheme and some additional cosmetic features. There are seven colors spread across the three variants – Fireball Yellow, Fireball Red, Stellar Red Metallic, Stellar Black Matte, Stellar Blue Metallic, Supernova Brown, and Supernova Blue. What will be standard across all the three variants of the Meteor 350 are the turn-by-turn navigation and smartphone connectivity.
