The booking figures for Royal Enfield Meteor 350 has crossed the 8,000 mark with waiting period increasing gradually alongside.
Royal Enfield Meteor 350 is gaining popularity soon as after a long time, we are seeing a new motorcycle from RE. While we had the 650 Twins launched last year itself, but the Meteor is more towards the affordable range and finally an alternative to the Classic and Bullet 350. Its prices start at Rs 1.75 Lakhs up to Rs 1.90 Lakhs (Ex-showroom).
Confirming with dealerships, the booking numbers have crossed 8,000 units pan-India. In just nearly 10 days of it being launched, the numbers have crossed this limit and as per the dealer, the festive season bookings will further increase the number. The official bookings commenced as the prices were announced on 6th November.
The waiting period, on the side, has increased up to 1 month at least in the major metro cities. As enquired, in the early couple of days of launch, the waiting was estimated up to 15 days. However, seeing the festive season demand, the period has further increased. If you book today, you will have to wait for a month for all the variants.
Royal Enfield Meteor 350 is available in three variants – Stellar, Fireball and Supernova. Fireball is the base-spec variant and Supernova is the top-end variant. The major difference between both of them include different colour options and the Fireball variant missing out on a backrest. Supernova comes with dual-tone colour option and Stellar comes with a special Matte black colour.
Meteor 350 gets a 348cc air-cooled fuel-injected engine that produces 21 PS and 27 Nm of peak torque, paired with a 5-speed manual gearbox. The platform is completely new, making the motorcycle lighter and agile to ride. It gets a bluetooth-enabled instrument cluster with Google Maps-aided turn-by-turn navigation.
