ROYAL ENFIELD has been hard at work lately, with their latest release of the Meteor 350 cruiser joining the extremely popular 650cc twins - the Interceptor 650 and Continental GT 650 - alongside the accessible Himalayan adventurer, which is rumoured to be seen in a new form with 650cc motor…

A short while ago, we were in attendance at the official UK press launch at the popular petrol-head cafe - one that doesn’t sell cakes - Caffeine & Machine, hoping to get a taste of the new cruiser from Royal Enfield. 

At an almost unbeatable price-tag starting at £3,749 with the Stellar trim, the Meteor 350 will hope to be selling like proverbial hot-cakes, and opens doors for new riders & commuters looking for a machine to pootle about on with style.

Royal Enfield Meteor 350 Review 2021 |

Given a new twin-downtube spine frame, the build quality is certainly there to serve as a foundation for custom builds in the future. Something I’m eager to see.

Also new is a brand new single-cylinder J-Series motor, plus a nifty Tripper navigation system as standard. Very handy for those wanting to adventure, but also given a few pointers in the right direction.

Heading over to the launch, I was wondering how the Meteor would compare to other cruisers on the market, and speaking to the Royal Enfield team on arrival, they were curious to know how we’d feel about this new model - would it compare to the other cruisers on the market? 

In a search to appeal to riders stepping up from 125cc models, and those not eagerly keen for maximum power (yes, people like that do exist) would this be turning heads or closing wallets?
