With just over 20 hp of power and a top speed of around 120 km / h from the single-cylinder engine, the Meteor 350 may not have the speed or performance of a typical American cruiser. But it’ll have just about enough horsepower for the occasional highway race, if that’s where it’ll be spending time. More than pure performance and targeting experienced motorcyclists, Royal Enfield appears to be looking for newer and younger American motorcyclists with the Meteor 350. The Meteor 350, Royal Enfield hopes to capitalize on a demographics that have long eluded the mark of 100% American cruiser motorcycles par excellence, Harley-Davidson, to that of the baby boomers or to the young generation of American motorcyclists.
