    RE's Meteor 350 a threat for Honda H'ness CB350?

    Honda H'ness CB350 is currently being retailed through the company's Big Wing outlets and hence, is only available at 5 dealerships across India right now. Now, this is where Royal Enfield has a clear advantage with its wide sales and service network with over 800 outlets across the nation. Moreover, the problems for Honda will further rise if Royal Enfield launches the Meteor 350 at under Rs 1.85 lakh (ex-showroom), the figure at which the H'ness CB350 is retailing right now!

    10:52 (IST)06 Nov 2020
    Why Meteor 350 is an important product for Royal Enfield?

    The Royal Enfield Meteor 350 is set to replace the Thunderbird 350X in the company's product portfolio. While the Thunderbird moniker was quite loved by the customers and has proved itself in terms of sales, the same has now got a bit outdated and this has now started reflecting in the sales figures. That said, customers now want something more modern in this segment that can also well very fit as the perfect replacement for the Thunderbird, a bike that would offer almost all characteristics of the Thunderbird along with a bit more and hence, the Meteor 350.

    Royal Enfield Meteor expected price in India

    If you ask us, the Royal Enfield Meteor 350 is expected to be launched in India for a price of close to Rs 1.7 lakh (ex-showroom). If priced in this region, not only it will arrive with a competitive tag but will also undercut the recently launched Honda H'ness CB350 by a considerable margin. Also, since the CB350's availability across India is quite low at the moment, since it is being retailed via Big Wing dealerships, Royal Enfield clearly has an advantage here and a lower price than the H'ness would be like a cherry on top for the prospective Meteor customers.
