Royal Enfield today unveiled the new RE Meteor 350. First, this machine will be launched in India, and then in Europe from the first quarter of 2021. On 9 November, on the occasion of the market launch, there will be a live press conference with participants from the RE management team as well as the designers of the Meteor. We take a first quick look at the Meteor 350.
The Meteor 350 from Royal Enfield inherits the 1952 meteor. The new Meteor 350 was designed and developed by the international design and engineering teams in the technology centres in India and the UK. This makes the Meteor 350 the result of a collaborative construction process between the UK and India.
