What would you expect in all new Royal Enfield Super Meteor?
Royal Enfield will launch the new Meteor 350 in India by mid-September after being delayed due to the continued COVID-19 pandemic. It's expected to be priced around Rs 1.75 to Rs 1.85 lakh (ex-showroom). The new Royal Enfield Meteor 350 will replace the Thunderbird 350X. One of the most reasons for changing the name to ‘Meteor’ is because ‘Thunderbird’ is copyrighted by other brands in international markets.

The test bike seen within the latest spy shots is loaded with accessories and features an outsized windscreen, rear luggage support frames, an engine guard, and what seems to be aftermarket footpegs, designed for the rider and pillion's comfort. The accessories are possibly a part of Royal Enfield's accessory catalog although no other changes are seen on the machine from what we have seen in earlier images.

The all-new 350 cc engine will have a special architecture than the BS6 350 cc engine utilized in the Royal Enfield Classic 350 and Royal Enfield Bullet 350. rather than having push-rod actuated valves, the new engine is predicted to use one overhead cam (SOHC), and is predicted to be more free-revving and refined than the 350 cc UCE mill of the Bullet 350 and Classic 350.
The Royal Enfield Meteor 350 is predicted to urge slightly more performance also, but will still have accessible power to not overwhelm riders with less experience. So far, there is no indication of the specifications, but from all indications, Royal Enfield is predicted to launch the Meteor 350 within the next month approximately. In fact, the Meteor 350's launch is already delayed and was originally expected to be introduced by June 2020.
The switchgear on the upcoming motorcycle has also been revised. It now features two round dial switches to work headlights and engine kill functions that are placed on either side of the handlebar.
Going by earlier reports of the corporate performing on a Bluetooth enabled instrument console, the Meteor might be the primary motorcycle to feature smartphone pairing technology from the brand.
