Royal Enfield Meteor 350 in May

Post by jrsjr »

Well, I didn't believe it was actually coming here. I didn't believe it when I saw it in the January update of the EPA certification list. I didn't believe it when I saw it in the March 16th update to the CARB Executive Order list. And I'm not going to believe it until I see one rolling down the road in Virginia. But I'm pretty sure it's coming...

In May.
$4399.

Why do I now kinda/sorta believe? Because RoadRacingWorld.com says so.

Dang...

Name recognition and/or nostalgia is all this bike has going for it IMO. The G400c is a better bike all around for a few hundred dollars more... on paper.

But at least here in Las Vegas, the Royal Enfield dealer adds about $800 in made-up fees to every bike it sells. The Genuine Scooters dealer adds virtually no fees. Guess which I'd buy if I was in the market?

Its a great looking bike to me, but power is too low. There are faster bikes out there for roughly the same price (CSC Rx3, KTM 200 Duke).
The Enfield 650 twins are tempting.
