Q. Which bike is better between Jawa 42 Bobber and Royal Enfield Meteor 350?
  • Both bikes are good in their own forte, Jawa 42 Bobber looks amazing and has great ride quality, it is powered by the same 334cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine that makes 30.64PS and 32.74Nm as the Perak. It is mated to a six-speed gearbox. It gets the same underpinnings as the Perak which includes a telescopic fork and mono-shock suspension setup which is retuned for better comfort. For braking, it gets discs at both ends. On the other hand, the new J Platform motor is a clear step change from the UCE, making the Meteor 350 a far more well-rounded motorcycle than any of the previous 350s. It’s not just the engine, the gearbox feels more grown up too and the bike handles itself and its weight rather well. For a better understanding of compatibility and riding comfort, we would suggest you to take a test ride. Follow the link and select your desired city for dealership details.

Q. What is the difference between Royal Enfield Meteor 350 Fireball and Supernova?
  • Well, all the variants are having the same engine and performance the only difference one will spot is in the appearance. Here Fireball is the first variant, this is the most basic variant of the lot, and thanks to its basic equipment levels, it bears the closest resemblance to the erstwhile Thunderbird X 350. Points worth noting here are that the alloys are a plain black design, the tank logo is a sticker, the exhaust is blacked out, and there is no backrest. The mid-range variant is called Stellar, and it gets a chrome-finished exhaust system, a rear backrest, and 3D tank logos. However, it still has to make do with the all-black alloy wheels. On the top is Supernova variant that looks like a pukka tourer straight from the showroom, not least thanks to its large front screen. In addition to this, it also gets smart-looking diamond-cut alloy wheels, dual-tone paint schemes, and contrasting seats.
Q. Which is better Honda Hness 350 or RE Meteor 350? I want my bike for longer ride like 700kms and I have back pain issue too.
  • I have done couple of long rides on hness. Easy to do 400kms a day with split seats. Yet to take my meteor out on a long ride (will post once I get a chance to). But I must say short distance drive (50 kms) is more fun on meteor. Meteor has better gearing and gear changes are very smooth.
  • I have both , but Hness is more powerful bike get top end easily 130+ whereas Meteor slower than Hness.
  • Both are comfortable for long ride, meteor slight edge over Hness CB 350, over all hness is good.

  • Royal Enfield Meteor 350
  • Great motorcycle by royal enfield.I am an owner of this bike who has ridden it for around 1000km and i have to say great work and effort has been done by the royal enfield with the engine refinement, Vibrations, Breaking, Comfort.The tripper on my bike doesn't work.It gets connected just at the very beginning and gives me the direction at that time but after that the directions don't change and i have to stop my bike just to see a different direction on it.This thing pisses me off.But the bike is superb overall.

  • Perfect value for money.No regret of buying such a wonderful machine.Show stopper in the road while riding this black beauty.Down sides :1.Quality of rear view mirror ( better to have rectangle mirror to cover much scene from behind.I have fixed mirror from bajaj avenger which gives more confident and coverage while on road.)2.No use of navigator, It drains your mobile batter power fast ( its just an ornamental digital clock )3.Poor ergonomics in positioning of horn and the day flash switch.

  • Good bike with style and appeal.One can easily cruise a long distance.M owing one.I feel light while riding this monster.The best part is its tipper navigation.No need to put mobile and worry for rains and all.The only con which i see is its heating issue.But the mighty 350 cc engine will emit heat.
