Recently Asked User Questions

Q. Which is better Meteor 350 or new Classic 350?
Q. Which is better, Royal Enfield Classic 350 or Meteor 350?
  • Royal Enfield Classic 350 is a great bike in fact that RE engineers and designers have maintained the charming DNA of its predecessor but without the niggles. It was very easy for the brand to overdo the iconic Classic 350, but they have managed to find the right balance and the updates have been done only where required. 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. Moreover, we would suggest you to take a test ride before making the final decision. Follow the link and select your desired city for dealership details.
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.

  • My most favourite bike- the new royal enfield classic 350 made a fine attempt at dissuading me from riding anything else, And it succeeded to a fair extent, Too.Classic 300 is the important bike of the company.Previously these bikes had vibrations because of old engine.Now royal enfield has done great job by swapping a new non vibrating engine.Which attracts people to purchase the bike.It looks very aggressive and stylish.

    Farhaan few weeks ago
  • Royal enfield classic 350 with some cons- the royal enfield classic 350 is overall a good bike with some cons which can be observed after riding it for some time.As compared with the prices it doesn’t have the top-end performance of the meteor 350.New footpegs foul with your legs in traffic and while parking which is annoying and the thump of the old engine is missing.

Classic 350 User Reviews
  • 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.

    Lawrence Amalraj few weeks ago
  • 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.

    Anurag Kumar few weeks ago
  • I am a proud owner of this bike.As on today, I am completely satisfied with the performance of this bike.The first service cost is just rs.663/-, Which is very low.It gives me a mileage of 37kmpl ( before 1st service), Which just adds me a smile in my face.
