Royal Enfield is all set to launch its latest motorcycle, the Royal Enfield Meteor 350 on November 6, 2020. And ahead of its launch Royal Enfield has released a teaser video on social media, which gives a glimpse of the new Meteor 350, and a taste of what the exhaust note of the new bike will sound like. The Royal Enfield Meteor 350 will be a replacement for the Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350, and is expected to be an all-new product from the ground-up, featuring a new 350 cc engine, with a new frame and completely new design and features.
The RE Meteor 350 is expected to be powered by a new 350 cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled, long stroke engine which is expected to retain the characteristic thump, and with maximum power rated at around 20.2 bhp and peak torque of 27 Nm.
