Thailand is one of the most important markets for Royal Enfield outside of India and now the company has launched the new Meteor 350 in the South-East Asian nation as well. The Royal Enfield Meteor 350 will be assembled at the company’s plant in Thailand and all three variants of the Meteor 350 will be on sale – Fireball, Stellar and Supernova. Prices for the Royal Enfield Meteor 350 start at 150,000 Thai Baht and go up to 159,500 Thai Baht for the top-spec variant. In terms of the specifications and features, the Meteor 350 will stay the same as the India-spec model.
The wait if finally over.

The Royal Enfield Meteor 350 has a new design, with new body panels, a new fuel tank shape, and even the badges and decals are all-new. The silhouette though is typically Thunderbird. But there are more changes in the details; in fact every single component is brand new, starting from the mirrors, windshield, headlight, turn indicators and the tapered handgrips, as well as the rotary switches.
Royal Enfield has a strong presence in Thailand and the fact that the company has an assembly plant in the country is testament to the fact as well.
