We are going to witness a significant change in history. It is the revival of a nameplate. Royal Enfield is bringing up the name Meteor again in the market from its side and with many extravagant changes done to it. Royal Enfield has even filed a trademark for the patent on the name Meteor, which seems to be a vintage bike dated in the 1960s.
The bike was replaced by Super Meteor and finally the Interceptor, but now, we expect it to be more in the budget than the Interceptor 650.
The estimated price for the bike is likely to be around 2.3 lacs, and its best competitors are going to be the TVS Apache RR310 and the KTM 390 Duke.
The Meteor has got a petrol engine for the new version. The Meteor engine is four valves and two-cylinder type. It draws a power of 47.65 PS at the rate of 7100 rpm. The engine displacement is going to be 648 ccs. The torque provided by the Meteor engine is 52 NM at the speed of 4000 rpm.
The Meteor has got a six-speed gearbox embedded in its system. The Royal Enfield has given Meteor the fuel injection system . the safety of the bike is on the hands of a dual-channel Anti Breaking system or the ABS.
The Design is a cutting edge one. The headlamp is halogen, which is new for the market and seems to be a bit of experimentation. The wheels are spokes type, and the tubeless tires are the regular thing they provided with. The ignition type is Digital spark Ignition. There is no engine immobilizer. The compression ratio is 9.5:1.
The transmission is manual, and there are six gears. The handing has been taken care of by disc brakes. They exist at the rear as well as the front. The front brake is of diameter 320 mm, and the rear wheel has a 240 mm disc brake. The front suspension is Front fork type. The rear suspension is the twin coil-over shocks type.
The turn lights and the taillights are LED. The battery powering them is a 12 V supply.
So, look forward to a comfortable light with it.
