Royal Enfield Meteor 350 Specs
Royal Enfield is expected to put an all-new engine in the upcoming Meteor 350. The exact figures remain a mystery so far. However, it is being speculated that the Chennai-based two-wheeler company has worked extensively on this powerplant. The mill would feature a single overhead camshaft (SOHC) instead of a push-road based layout. It would also have an electronic fuel-injection system. The new engine is expected to have lower vibrations and a higher level of refinement.
