Royal Enfield is said to be working on an OverHead Camshaft (OHC) version of the 346cc air-cooled single-cylinder engine. We noticed that the new motorcycle does not have a pre-cat like the Classic 350 BS6 motorcycle, indicating a new 350cc engine.

The new OHC engine from the brand is expected to offer more refinement, better fuel efficiency and most of all offer increased performance over the current crop of tappet-valve UCE 346cc engines. The current 346cc single-cylinder, air-cooled engine produces 19.1bhp and 28Nm of torque.

Once launched the Meteor is expected to replace the Thunderbird models in the brand's line-up, and rival the Jawa Perak, and the Bajaj Avenger 220 in the Indian market. We expect the Meteor to be priced between 1.6 to 1.8 lakh ex-showroom (India).

Thoughts About The Royal Enfield Meteor Production Spec Spied

Royal Enfield Meteor looks production-ready in the spy pictures. The motorcycle has the retro-looks and the riding position in signature Royal Enfield standards. With the company heavily focusing on refining their smaller-capacity engines, the Meteor could be an all-around package from the brand. However, it would be sad to see the Thunderbird being shelved, as it has been a go-to motorcycle for riders on longer journeys.
