Chennai: Meteor 350, the much-awaited Royal Enfield bike has finally been launched with just a week to go for Diwali. The launch was scheduled earlier this year but the coronavirus pandemic and slowdown in the auto sector had delayed things. Notably, the new Meteor 350 will be the replacement for the legendary Thunderbird and will be the first of the new era of Royal Enfield motorcycles. The Meteor 350 will come in three variants – Fireball, the Stellar and the Supernova. The bookings for Meteor 350 begins today in several cities across India.
