Find everything you need to know about the new Royal Enfield Meteor 350 right here:
54


Everybody wants to win the heritage war, including Royal Enfield, who claim they’re the oldest motorcycle marque out there in continuous production – since 1901. Does it matter that about half those years were in India? I guess it shouldn’t. Do car manufacturers battle it out to be the oldest?




Never mind. With the introduction of the really excellent GT650 and Interceptor 650 twin-cylinder bikes in 2018, Royal Enfield’s quality quotient rose by approximately a quantum leap. And now, Head of Product Strategy and Industrial Design Mark Wells, says the new Meteor 350 is the next big step forward. Ever since RE bought the UK’s legendary Harris Performance, the Indian/English collaboration has been strong. The Meteor 350 is the latest fruit of the symbiotic relationship between Royal Enfield’s UK Technology Center in Leicestershire, and RE’s sprawling new plant in Chennai, India. In another bid to keep up with the American Joneses, RE USA is also upgrading its Milwaukee HQ/museum, and planning a bunch of get-togethers for its people. We’re told there are now 140 RE dealers in the US, and 14 in Canada.

Anyway, the Meteor 350 is an all-new motorcycle that keeps it simple, air-cooled, and inexpensive. But with just enough tech to get by in the modern marketplace, including a balancer shaft for smooth running and turn-by-turn navigation in its own “Tripper Pod” instrumentation.

Finally people are starting to review this bike! I think the Metero 350 Fireball is my favorite model of the three as far as looks go.

I am happy to have one of three Royal Enfield Meteor 350s in southern Ontario for the moment. I am beyond happy to say I own the only stellar blue in southern Ontario. This is an awesome bike, if you would like to purchase one and are having second thoughts, cut them and go get the bike.

Welcome to the forum @Saugajatt! Congrats on your 350! How long have you had it for? How do you find riding it?

Thank you! It is an honour to join the Royal Enfield family. I purchased the motorcycle about a week ago, at that time it had about 30 km, now it is at approx. 410 km. The bike is fantastic to ride, it handles very well and before purchasing, I saw youtube videos with only one downside which was the bike having many vibrations. To be honest, the vibrations are not crazy (nothing you wouldn't be able to handle), a bike with great sound is definitely going to vibrate or you might as well purchase a scooter to avoid it. The bike is extremely great for beginners to learn on or individuals looking for a comfortable commute. The only downside I have had is being unable to log into the Royal Enfield North America app which is needed to change the time display on the motorcycle including operating the tripper navigation. Although, that does not stop me from riding.

I have researched the 350 meteor and it looks nice but I still have an affinity for the classic 500 style. I know the 350 produces almost same numbers as the 500. Wish Enfield would produce a new classic with the hymilan 400 single. Better yet develop a 500 with same tech they did with the 350.
A twin 650 classic would not be the same bike.

Oh well I guess the classic 500 will.be.my unicorn bike. I will keep looking until I find one

Welcome @Silverback! What bikes have you owned? Are you only interested in getting a Royal Enfield or considering bikes from other brands?

Good luck on your search for a 500 classic!

He looks absolutely amazing. I am waiting for more detailed reviews. I recently bought a motorcycle for myself, did a free vin check history using Epicvin and was upset. That many people had problems.

Sorry but my notifications weren't turned on.

I found a ckasaic 500 about ten hours away . I had it shipped from dealer. 2400 miles on it.

I have owned various motorcycles over the years Yamahas and harleys mostly.

The sealwe in my town does Enfield as a very small part of his business
They are not very knowledgeable or resourceful so I had to hunt one so1n myself.

I couldn't pass up the 500 as they were being discounted and the styling more to my liking. It will fo well with my BMW 1971 r50/5.
