Royal Enfield Meteor 350 Variants Explained
As per leaked images, the upcoming cruiser will be offered in three variants
Royal Enfield is likely to launch the Meteor 350 by the end of this month. But before its official launch, images of the motorcycle have leaked online, giving us a fair idea about its variants. The upcoming motorcycle will be available in three variants: Fireball, Stellar and Supernova -- inspired by the spacefaring moniker of the highway mile muncher.
Royal Enfield Meteor 350 Fireball
The Fireball will be the most affordable variant of the Royal Enfield Meteor 350. It is likely to start from around Rs 1.60 lakh (ex-showroom), making it Rs 12,000 dearer than the now-discontinued Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350. Being an affordable colour variant, it features a colour-coded fuel tank with matching rim stickers. The remaining parts of the motorcycle are all draped in black. It also gets minimalistic ‘Royal Enfield’ and ‘Meteor 350’ stickers instead of 3D logos. This variant is available in two solid gloss colours: Fireball Red and Fireball Yellow.
Royal Enfield Meteor 350 Stellar
The Stellar is essentially a mid-spec variant featuring a more practical cushioned backrest for added pillion comfort. This is the only practicality-enhancing addition over the Fireball variant with the rest of the features being cosmetic. For a more premium appeal, its exhaust system, fuel injector cover and handlebar are all finished in chrome. This variant also features 3D badging on the fuel tank and the side panels. The colour-coded body panels give the motorcycle a more wholesome look. It comes in three colour options, out of which two have a metallic gloss finish (Stellar Red and Stellar Blue). On the other hand, the Stellar Black colour variant features a matte finish for stealthy looks. It is expected to cost around Rs 7,000 to Rs 8,000 over the Fireball variant.
Royal Enfield Meteor 350 Supernova
Royal Enfield has offered a couple of practical features apart from a premium aesthetic finish on the Supernova variant. It gets a large windscreen and premium seat cover with cushioned backrest as standard. These additions should help in making the motorcycle a much more comfortable highway tourer than the other two variants. Available in dual-tone shades of Supernova Brown and Supernova Blue, the motorcycle also gets equally premium-looking machined alloy wheels. The chromed-out elements on the motorcycle are similar to the Stellar variant, but this one also features chrome on the indicators. Expect this one to command a premium of around Rs 10,000 over the Stellar variant.
Except for the cushioned pillion backrest and the windshield, the rest of the features across all the three variants are cosmetic. Thankfully, Royal Enfield offers the most important feature: a smartphone-compatible instrument cluster with turn-by-turn navigation as standard across all variants. The best bit is that you can also buy the entry-level variant and customise it as per your needs as Royal Enfield is likely to offer a whole range of accessories like windshield, cushioned backrest, touring seats, footpegs, rear view mirrors, saddle stays, crash guards as optional and branded fitments.
