It makes use of a twin-cradle frame along with a more powerful engine and new connected technologies and features alongside.

Royal Enfield Meteor 350 Engine
The Royal Enfield Meteor 350 has a newly built twin-cradle frame for its underpinnings while getting a powerful and brand new single-cylinder SOHC four-stroke 349 cc engine that churns out 20.2 bhp and 27 Nm at 6,100 rpm and 4,000 rpm respectively. The new engine is a replacement for the conventional push-rod design seen in the case of older engines from Royal Enfield with a primary balance shaft, overhead camshaft, and more refinement.
The engine is mated to a new 5-speed transmission system that offers easier shifts in comparison to older models. The bike comes with 183 Kg of kerb weight that is lighter than the Thunderbird 350 while getting a longer wheelbase which ensures greater stability at the same time.
