The Meteor 350 is designed by the company on a very new modular J platform. A 350 cc engine has been made available on this motorcycle.

The Meteor 350 will be the first bike in its segment to have a dual display (LCD and TFT) for the instrument cluster. In this, information like LCD screen fuel gauge, mileage, range, time can be seen. But there is still doubt on whether Bluetooth connectivity with navigation features will be available in the TFT unit or not.

At the same time, an air-cooled engine with UCE 350 single-cylinder OHC setup can also be made available from the company Meteor 350 which will give more mileage with less vibration as compared to other Royal Enfield bikes. The Royal Enfield Meteor 350 will be launched in India as a replacement for the Thunderbird 350 X. In which BS6 compliant 350cc single-cylinder, the fuel-injected motor is available. This engine generates a peak power of 20bhp and torque of 28Nm. Along with a new chassis, the Meteor 350 will feature standard dual-channel ABS (anti-lock braking system) with disc brakes at both ends. However, the suspension setup will be taken from the outgoing Thunderbird 350 X itself. Talk about the price, then it is being speculated that the price of this motorcycle will be fixed between Rs 1.60 lakh and Rs 1.80 lakh (ex-showroom).
