Royal Enfield filed patents for the Meteor moniker last year and about a month ago the production-spec Royal Enfield Meteor 350 was spotted in the open sans camouflage presumed to be out for a TVC shoot indicating that the brand is likely to launch the motorcycle soon in the Indian market. 

Now a new set of pictures have emerged and have been circulating the internet that appears to be pictures of the brand’s motorcycle configurator that uses the bike computer-generated image to showcase its features and allows the addition of optional accessories to the said motorcycle. 

The spied pictures reveal that the Royal Enfield Meteor 350 will be called ‘Meteor 350 Fireball’. As of now, it is not clear if the Fireball suffix is a product variant or is being used for a particular colour. One of the pictures reveals the price of the Meteor 350 Fireball which according to the spied pictures of the configurator show INR 1,68,550 which is believed to be included with the ‘Tinted Flyscreen’ accessory which is priced at INR 1,750 and other optional accessories.

Other than the tinted flyscreen the brand is likely to offer a plethora of customisation options such as seats, backrests, luggage carrying options such as panniers, options with footrests, protection equipment etc. The brand is likely to launch the new configurator along with the Meteor 350 Fireball. 

According to the spied pictures, the Royal Enfield Meteor 350 Fireball features a rounded headlamp unit with a circular LED daytime running light, rounded instruments pods, rounded tail lamp, teardrop tank, short front fender, conventional telescopic front forks with black finished bottoms, a black powder-coated engine with machine-finished engine head, black low slung exhaust, multispoke alloy wheels etc. The spied pictures also show the Meteor 350 Fireball equipped with a front bash plate believed to be an added accessory. 

Powering the Royal Enfield Meteor 350 Fireball is likely to be based on the new generation engine platform which will be a BS6 compliant 350cc engine with the chain drive on the left-hand side along with a double-cradle chassis and improved NVH levels.

The Royal Enfield Meteor 350 Fireball is said to replace the Royal Enfield Thunderbird X and is expected to be launched around the festive season with a price tag around the INR 1.65 lakh mark.
