Royal Enfield Meteor production-spec has been spotted testing on the Chennai East Coast Road. The company is expected to launch the new motorcycle by December 2020.
The spy images from Rushlane reveal the test mule to have sans camouflage. The pictures showcase the motorcycle to be in its near-production form and feature a bobber-style design with retro looks.
The spy images also reveal the Meteor's round-shaped instrument cluster, headlamps, and tail lamps all adding to the retro looks of the motorcycle. Other features include a large contoured fuel-tank with round-shaped fenders at both ends, a blacked-out exhaust, wider rider and pillion seats, upright handlebars, and split rear grab rails.
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.
The spy pictures also reveal the all-new motorcycle to feature telescopic forks at the front and a twin-shock setup at the rear. Braking on the motorcycle will be done through disc brakes at both ends. The company is expected to offer dual-channel ABS as standard on the upcoming motorcycle.
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).
In other news, the Royal Enfield Interceptor and the Continental GT 650 BS6 motorcycles have arrived at the dealerships across India. Both motorcycles received a significant hike in its pricing — here are more details.
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.
