Must Read Questions & Answers Before Buying Meteor 350

Q. Please suggest me a bike for daily commute of 60km and also I go for touring. I have KTM Duke 250, Himalayan, Meteor in my mind. Which one should I go for?
  • All these bikes are good enough, however, they are of different segments and have different characteristics. If we talk about KTM 250 Duke, probably the most un-KTMish KTM of them all, the 250 Duke with its relaxed motor and comfy suspension is a great choice for those who aren’t looking to set lap records but want something quick and convenient for everyday use. If we talk about Royal Enfield Meteor, the thump wrapped up in a refined, easy to ride, confident and practical package sounds just right. The lack of oil leaks, or missing parts over our 800km stint makes the package more joyous. The healthy fuel efficiency, 10,000km oil-change intervals and 5000km/6 month service inspections make it more endearing. So, this Royal Enfield fulfills the promise made by the Thunderbird many years ago. However, the Meteor doesn’t make a bigger and bolder promise of its own by way of plush ride quality, a greater sense of richness or, crucially, better cruising ability. The Himalayan BS6 is a well-rounded package which is now just that little bit better than before. It’s a nice motorcycle to tour the country on, and even if you don’t actually do so, it makes you look like the sort of person who does so with regularity. The Himalayan certainly isn’t flawless or entirely satisfactory in any singular aspect, but it makes up for these gaps by painting a picture of opportunity, inciting you to travel and explore on a whim. For that alone, it is and will continue to be relevant, even when the competition arrives in wholesomeness. You may compare all these bikes accordingly. Do take a test ride in order to get better clarity. Check out authorised dealership details.
  • Duke 250 is totally for stunt and drag race but still it is good for daily commute of 60 km but only if the road is smooth and it really perform well at it , even in traffic. Come to the touring duke 250 is good but not better, i mentioned not better because comfort for long ride is not that good. And Himalayan has unique ability , it's totally made for long ride and off road. So it really perform well in long drive , I mean it's atmost performance will explicit in highways. And Himalayan is the best comfort bike in that price segment. And off-road is also great. But in daily commute it perform well only if there is no traffic. If you stuck in extreme traffic Himalayan really make you mad , because of it's weight and shifting gear frequently is too hard for you , i suppose . In that case Himalayan is little bit sloppy. And i didn't know much about meteor , but as far as i know it's totally made for touring purpose so maybe it also sloppy for traffic scenarios. I think Himalayan is best choice but depending on your way of riding. But if you don't take long ride and don't want the comfort of pillion sheet i prefer duke 250 . Also if you go long ride and if you like off road and pillion sheet is important, Himalayan is the best choice . I didn't know much about meteor because I personally didn't like it's look so i donno about it's use . I think dominar 400 maybe suitable for you becausei heard about it it perform well at traffic and good for long journey . But i didn't like it's look also that's why I didn't much gather information about it . Check that bike out , maybe that bike is your's suitable bike, who knows
Q. Which is the best one between Meteor 350 and Mahindra Mojo?
  • If we talk about Royal Enfield Meteor, its 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. But at the same time, the Meteor isn’t breaking new ground either. RE has managed to produce a capable and commendable motorcycle but it has done so in an orthodox fashion, ironing out the biggest chinks in the Thunderbird’s armour and making small, incremental gains in the remaining areas. A plush ride and a bit more poke from the engine would’ve made the Meteor 350 a far more characterful and engaging motorcycle, the likes of which we’ve never seen from a single-cylinder RE before. On the other hand, The Mahindra Mojo is a honest attempt and does great justice to its touring dynamics nature completely. The refined motor, comfortable riding dynamics, supple ride quality and loaded parts bin makes it a great motorcycle for long-distance riding. However, Mahindra Two Wheelers doesn’t have the dealer network spread and the trust as its rival brands command. You may compare both bikes accordingly. Do take a test ride in order to get better clarity. Check out authorised dealership details.
Q. Does honda cb350 looks like a big Splendor? Also confused between meteor and cb350!?
  • The H’ness CB350 follows in the same footsteps as the CB1100 EX and CB750, the small made-for-India roadster bearing the same CB silhouette. One can draw parallels to the Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 as both are very representative of an early-1970s design. As for the Meteor 350, the thump wrapped up in a refined, easy to ride, confident and practical package sounds just right. However, when it comes to the spec sheet, there's no denying that the CB350 comes out on top, with the Meteor a close second. But that notion soon changes when you consider the Meteor's price features list. So when it comes to value proposition, Royal Enfield’s latest offering makes more sense, especially over the previous-gen Thunderbird 350X. Moreover, we would suggest you to take a test ride for a better understanding of performance and comfort.

Q. Which one is better between Royal Enfield Classic 350 and Meteor Stellar? Is Honda Highness CB350 better?
  • The Royal Enfield Classic 350 is far from a perfect bike even in its BS6 avatar. However, in a world where everybody is trying to go retro and neo-retro, it remains the OG retro motorcycle in essence and feel. As for the Meteor 350, the thump wrapped up in a refined, easy to ride, confident and practical package sounds just right. However, when it comes to the spec sheet, there's no denying that the CB350 comes out on top, with the Meteor a close second.

Q. How many days will take to deliver new meteor after booking on November 6th?
  • Dear RE friends, I have done the booking on 13-11-2020 '' Meteor 350 Fireball- Yellow '' with customization and costed around Rs:217000/- + . After the booking , RE replied with tentative schedule of delivery on 28-12-2020. It was totally disappointing. Initially, Dealer has agreed that delivery of the vehicle will be very quick and we can expect within 15 days. But next day, changed his delivery schedule and totally disappointed as well.I have forwarded the mail notification to RE Customer service, which is of no use and dealer just washed his hands and waiting for their reply.These kind of issues has to stopped once for all. When you collect booking, supplier should provide the proper delivery schedule to the end user.I am discussing this issues with legal department for the best result.Hope the best.
  • BOOKED A CUSTOMISED SUPERNOVA 0N 14 NOV ONLINE FOR DELIVERY IN GUWAHATI, NO INFORMATION AS ON 01 JAN 2021. BIKES WERE AVAILABLE OF THE SHELF FROM A FEW DEALERS FOR INSTANT DELIVERY JUST A WEEK BACK. SOMETHING IS FISHY. RESPONSE FROM RE HELPDESK IS JUST TOO POOR. THEY DON'T EVEN REPLY TO YOUR MAIL WITH RESOLUTION. DELAERS ARE EITHER CLUELESS OF DELIVERY SCHEDULE OR THEY ARE INTO SOMETHING ELSE (NO NEED TO MENTION WHAT DOES IT MEANS), RE NEEDS TO REVAMP ITS CUSTOMER SUPPORT DESK DRASTICALLY FOR ONLINE BOOKINGS.I FEEL ONLINE BOOKINGS FOR CUSTOMISED BIKES ARE LIKELY TO BE DELAYED. BEST WAY FOR AN EARLY DELIVERY IS TO STEP INTO DELEARSHIP AND BOOK THROUGH THEM.
  • I booked supernova blue customised bike on 10th Dec, 2020. The tentative delivery date is 10th Mar, 2020. Yesterday I visited my showroom and asked for the update, they are saying that, we should get our delivery just about 2 days difference (prior / after) to whatever the date mentioned in our booking receipt. It's impossible to expect the delivery before the mentioned date. I know we are eagerly waiting for the bike, but this is the hard reality.

Q. If budget is not a constraint, should one buy int 650 or meteor 350? considering i will be using the bike 50% of the time in city and rest 50% on highways.ps: I like the features provided and the body of the meteor 350 but really like the ride quality of int 650.?
  • Apart from the budget, both bikes belong to different segments and have different characteristics. If we talk about Meteor, the thump wrapped up in a refined, easy to ride, confident and practical package sounds just right. The lack of oil leaks or missing parts over our 800km stint makes the package more joyous. The healthy fuel efficiency, 10,000km oil-change intervals and 5000km/6 month service inspections make it more endearing. So, this Royal Enfield fulfills the promise made by the Thunderbird many years ago. However, the Meteor doesn’t make a bigger and bolder promise of its own by way of plush ride quality, a greater sense of richness or, crucially, better cruising ability. On the other hand, if we talk about Interceptor 650, with this pricing, Royal Enfield has delivered an exceptional value-for-money product like none other. Small issues, like no clear lens for the headlight or wide exhaust layout, or the narrow and soft seat, can be overlooked or fine-tuned. This is virtually half the price of the Harley Street 750 and it sits precariously close to the KTM 390 Duke, the Austrian being just four grand cheaper. Hence, with this pricing strategy, Royal Enfield is giving you a class product that seems to be built more solidly than anything it has ever produced. It is not as premium or modern in many aspects, but this motorcycle has brought back the joys of simple motorcycling - just what Royal Enfield set out to achieve. You may compare both the bikes accordingly. Do take a test ride in order to get better clarity. Check out authorised dealership details.
  • Int 650 will better. all the features of meteor will be available as options in the mean time.
