Imperial Enfield Meteor 350 dispatch draws nearer as creation restarts - IAB Report

The production-ready Royal Enfield Meteor 350 was spotted in March this year. This hinted that the bike could be launched very soon. However, a nationwide lockdown was imposed to contain the spread of the deadly coronavirus forcing companies to shut down operations. Royal Enfield suspended all of its manufacturing operations on 23 March 2020 and thus the launch of the Meteor 350, which was said to take place in April, was delayed.

While the country is still under lockdown, the concerned authorities have given some relaxation in various parts of the nation. On 1 May 2020, the Indian Government announced a set of new guidelines with regards to resumption of manufacturing, industrial and commercial business activities. Consequently, Royal Enfield has reopened its manufacturing plants.

Royal Enfield has said that its manufacturing unit at Oragadam, near Chennai, is the first production facility where the operations have been resumed in a staggered manner with minimal staff over a single shift. There is complete compliance with norms of social distancing and workplace sanitisation. Operations at the other two manufacturing facilities - Tiruvottiyur and Vallam Vadagal - will be started in a phased manner.

Since the production has now restarted, this means that the Royal Enfield Meteor 350 launch date gets closer. The Royal Enfield Thunderbird successor is one of the most anticipated motorcycles of this year. Below are some of its expected key features are:

  • Round halogen headlamp with circumferential LED DRL
  • New instrument cluster with a secondary dial
  • Teardrop fuel tank with simple ‘Royal Enfield’ sticker
  • Retro-styled taillight and turn signals
  • Alloy wheels with body-coloured pinstripes
  • LHS chain drive

Concerning the motor, Royal Enfield is relied upon to put an all-new factory in the up and coming Meteor 350. The specific figures stay a puzzle up until this point. In any case, it is being theorized that the Chennai-based bike organization has worked widely on this motor. It would include a solitary overhead camshaft (SOHC) rather than a push-street based format. It would likewise have an electronic fuel-infusion framework. The new powerplant is likewise expected to have lower vibrations and a more significant level of refinement.
