Spencer rides the brand-spankin’ Royal Enfield Meteor 350 cruiser and offers a bit of a behind-the-scenes look at what really goes on at a motorcycle press launch.
Royal Enfield Meteor 350 pricing and specs
Royal Enfield has launched its new Meteor 350 cruiser, which is available from $6540 plus on-road costs for the base Fireball variant.
Three variants are offered in total, with the Stellar middling the line-up at $6840, while the Supernova will top the range at $7240.
Opting for the Stellar adds a pillion backrest, while the Supernova is distinguished by its large windshield accessory.
In any case, the new LAMS-approved cruiser comes with a three-year, unlimited kilometre warranty with roadside assist.
The bike’s styling is familiar with previous Royal Enfield models, but takes on a particularly upright riding position with tall-and-wide handlebars, forward-mounted footpegs and a contoured saddle designed for long stints.
Power comes from a new 349cc fuel-injected single-cylinder engine, producing 15kW and 27Nm, managed by a five-speed gearbox.
Stay tuned for the full review.
Spencer has a keen eye for hard news, and does some of his best living on deadline day. He loves more than anything to travel on his motorcycle, and is adamant that Melbourne Bitter is a world-class lager. He also knows how to operate the big computery thing in the office. By night, Spencer plays guitar with Melbourne punk outfit LOUTS.
