We compare the performance of the two 350cc Royal Enfield bikes

Royal Enfiled made a huge leap with the recent launch of the new Meteor 350 in India. It is the first RE motorcycle to be powered by a new 350cc motor and features an all-new platform. The Meteor 350 gives us a glimpse of what we can expect from Royal Enfield in the future, but how does it compare to its present: the Classic 350? We analyse their performance figures.

Acceleration

Acceleration

Meteor 350

Classic 350 BS6

0-60kmph

5.27sec

6.32sec

0-100kmph

15.12sec

22.85sec

30-70kmph (3rd gear)

6.67sec

8.28sec

40-80kmph (4th gear)

8.71sec

11.34sec

The Meteor 350 has a bit more power than the Classic 350 but slightly less torque. However, the J-series engine is significantly quicker than the traditional UCE motor. The Meteor 350 goes from standstill to 100kmph in 15.12 seconds, whereas the Classic does it in 22.85 seconds. Not only off the line, but the Meteor also has a much better roll-on figure which is crucial for overtaking. 

Braking

With its larger brakes, the Meteor 350 stops faster than the Classic 350. The Meteor comes to a complete halt from 80kmph in 31.84m whereas the Classic takes another 3.15m. However, we must add that the brake feel of the Classic is much better as the brakes on the Meteor don’t offer much feedback. 

Mileage

When it comes to efficiency, it’s a close match between both bikes. That said, the Meteor 350 has a slightly larger fuel tank (15 litres) which gives it around 60km of extra range on the highway.
