The engineers at Royal Enfield wanted to create a progression and evolution of Thunderbird. The Meteor is the next generation a one step above the Thunderbird.
It’s a sort of new Enfield, much smoother with fewer vibrations and refined. With a low-speed character and the exhaust note’s beat and you are on the traffic signal, you turn around, and you know it’s the Enfield.
The Royal Enfield engineer added the shaft to feel smoother higher up and retain the much character low down the beat.
While the engine is 349cc, a single-cylinder, air-cooled, long-stroke motor makes 20.2bhp and 27Nm of peak torque.
Take 80% of max torque for the UCE. The new engine has spread of extra 1000 rpms. In addition to the old 350cc engine, there is high rpm/low vibration, and it is much comfortable to maintain high speeds.
Royal Enfield is also working on two more motorcycles on the same Meteor platform, and in coming years, we may see these two motorcycles in the US.
