Royal Enfield is the world’s oldest motorcycle brand in continuous production since 1901. For 120 years, Royal Enfield has remained the preserver of the legacy of building simple, authentic classic motorcycles that are engaging and fun to ride. Riding through time and tough terrain, the company has emerged victorious in rides that have tested the endurance of man and machine, while remaining relevant and desirable through the ages. Now, to commemorate 120 years of building the pure motorcycling culture, Royal Enfield will mark 2021 with an ambitious attempt to push the boundaries of motorcycling possibilities.

2021 Royal Enfield Meteor 350 review: Cruiser style for moped money


The Meteor 350 mixes American cruiser and British standard bike style to end up with a handsome motorcycle.

Royal Enfield

American motorcycle buyers are pretty touchy when it comes to cruisers. They tend to view the recipe as fairly fixed, which is largely why we continue to see big, heavy baggers with massive, torque-heavy, low-revving engines and stratospheric price tags from the likes of Harley-Davidson or Indian. This resistance to change could make life difficult for a company like Royal Enfield — which is known for its small-displacement, affordable motorcycles — to break into the cruiser market. That isn’t going to stop Enfield from trying, though, which brings me to the 2021 Meteor 350.

The Meteor 350 is an odd little motorcycle. It has many hallmarks of the cruiser segment that fans of old-school American models will find familiar, like a heel shifter, pillion backrest or an available tall windscreen.

It was the year 2016 when Royal Enfield launched a very distinctive-looking motorcycle, something that was a complete departure from the company’s style of motorcycles. After riding on the success of Classics and Bullets for decades, Royal Enfield introduced adventure riding to its fans for the first time and there has been no looking back since. The Himalayan could be given substantial credit for popularising adventure riding in India. ADVs had been limited to big bike manufacturers which were not affordable for many but the Himalayan was the most affordable ADV in the country for some years.

Fast forward to the year 2021 and the Himalayan now has even more to show for itself than it did in its first generation.

In its MY2021 version, the Himalayan remains identical to the motorcycle we rode over a year ago when it was launched with BS-VI
