Which one is the best the Meteor or the newly launched Hunter | Royal Enfield | HighRPM

 One of the most affordable 350cc and the most expensive 350cc machines of Royal Enfield has everything almost the same but some things are different as well. Although the changes are minor we have to point them out to make things crystal clear why the affordable one is affordable and why is the expensive expensive?

Here, I'm talking about the newly launched Royal Enfield Hunter 350 and the bike that joined the portfolio back in 2020, the Royal Enfield Meteor 350. Out of four 350 models in the garage of Enfield, the Meteor is the most expensive and the Hunter 350 is one of the most affordable machines in the portfolio.


Every product of RE have its own style statement, in the same way the Meteor and Hunter both have their own and both are handsome looking machines. Both have their own style which shines greatly under their own sun. The new Hunter looks fresh and young meanwhile, the Meteor flashes the mature side of the motorcycling. 


What about their price?

The gap between their price is pretty huge thus things get interesting over here. The price of the newly launched

Hunter starts at 1.49 lakh and ends at 1.68 lakh and on the other hand,

Meteor's price at 2.05 lakh and the top-end cost is 2.21 lakh. These are the ex-showroom prices of these motorcycles and you can see the difference between them.


Talking about their engines......

Another interesting fact about these bikes is that they are powered by the same engine and the fact is that both the bikes churn out the same amount of power and torque. 

Hunter- 349cc single-cylinder air cooled engine with 72mm of bore & 85.8mm of stroke thus the compression ratio is 9.5:1. It comes with 5 speed manual transmission, chain drive, fuel injection and is BS6 emission compliant. 

  • 20.2bhp of power at 6100rpm
  • 27Nm of torque at 4000rpm. 

Meteor- 349cc single cylinder air cooled engine with 72mm of bore & 85.8mm of stroke thus the compression ratio is 9.5:1. It comes with 5 speed manual transmission, chain drive, fuel injection, and BS6 emission compliant. 

  • 20.2bhp of power at 6100rpm
  • 27Nm of torque at 4000rpm. 
As I told you earlier there is no difference in their engine and even they both are producing the same power and the torque figures.

Are their features also the same?

Almost, all the features you get in these bikes are the same only a few things are different between these two machines. 

Both the machines come with, 

  • Dual channel ABS 
  • Mobile connectivity
  • Navigation 
  • Analogue speedometer 
  • Digital tachometer 
  • Fuel gauge 
  • Time 
  • Tripmeter
  • Odometer
  • Side stand warning 
  • Service indicator 
  • Adjustable visor 
Therefore, the difference in terms of features is almost negligible. Both bikes offer the same things inside out. 


Mileage and fuel tank is same too?

Over here as well mileage is kinda same however the range has a big gap this is because the size of the fuel tank. 

The mileage you can extract from both vehicles is around 34-36 kmpl, these are the brand claimed figures in the real world we all know that things are going to be different. 

Meanwhile, the size of the belly of Hunter is smaller than Meteor. The size of Hunter's tank is 13 litres where 2.6 litres of fuel is for reserve. on the other hand, the Meteor has 15 litres of the tank with 3 litres of the reserve. 


Tyres, suspension, and brakes 

Hunter- Wheels-  110/80 - 17 (Front)

                             140/80 - 17 (Rear) 

              Brakes- 300mm disc (Front)

                            270mm disc (Rear)

              Suspension- Telescopic | 41mm forks | 130mm travel (Front)

                             Twin tube emulsion shock absorbers with 6-step adjustable preload (Rear)


Meteor- Wheels- 100/90 - 19 (Front)

                             140/70 - 17 (Rear)

                Brakes- 300mm disc (Front)

                               270mm disc (Rear)

                 Suspension-  Telescopic | 41mm forks | 130mm travel (Front)

                             Twin tube emulsion shock absorbers with 6-step adjustable preload (Rear)

As we can see the difference is in just wheel size other than that other things are same.

Lighting

Things are the same here as well, the design is different to an extent despite that it's same completely. 

  • Headlamp- Halogen
  • Tail light- LED
  • Blinkers- LED 

Dimensions and weight

Now here these two machines show the most remarkable difference between them, their physique vary a lot from each other and their design are also not the same.

Hunter- Length- 2,055mm
             Width- 800mm
             Height- 1055mm
             Wheelbase- 1370mm
             Ground clearance- 150mm
             Seat height- 800mm
             Weight- 181kg 

Meteor- Length- 2,140mm
             Width- 845mm
             Height- 1140mm
             Wheelbase- 1400mm
             Ground clearance- 170mm
             Seat height- 765mm
             Weight- 191kg 

So, as you can see the difference between their dimension is pretty good which comes into highlight although things thing won't come out in real as it it on paper. Over here the Meteor is bigger than Hunter almost in every expect except seat height, Meteor seat is very low and great for short riders out there. 

At the end.....
Seriously speaking both the bikes are the same in a lot of things the only visible difference between them is their design other than that both are exactly the same. The brand has done cost-cutting in Meteor as well. 
So, the question is which one is a good choice for your new bike, I would say that it is up to your preference whether you are looking for something young (Hunter) or you want something mature (Meteor).

Which one you should buy, the Kawasaki Ninja 400 or the Aprilia RS 457? | HighRPM

Recently, in December 2023, Aprilia launched its all-new Aprilia RS 457 , the first made-in-India Italian bike. The Aprilia is a brand which is known for its powerful, big, and track-centric machines. This RS 457 has less power than its other sibling but can shake the segment with its amazing power-to-weight ratio and Aprilia's fit finish. This Aprilia has some rivals in the market but in my opinion, the most strong one is from a family of monsters like Aprilia RS 457. This rival has been present in the industry for years and has won many hearts too, I'm talking about the Kawasaki Ninja 400 .   These two bikes are superb at their job and this thing leads to confusion. In terms of looks personally, to me Aprilia is looking more dashing than Ninja, now it doesn't mean that Ninja is not a handsome bike there is no doubt but for me, Aprilia is a bit more sexier. The topic to discuss is definitely not looks, it's about power, price, and other things, so, drop your gears and

Even though this one has a small engine unlike Aprilia, it has that same level of craziness, zest, and quality as Aprilia.  There is one more fact about this bike which is a proud moment for all Indians because this Aprilia is completely built in India. The bike has charming looks as you expect from Aprilia, and along with looks the quality and the fit finish of this bike are just top-notch. This bike is standing against the BMW G 310RR , KTM RC 390 , newly launched Yamaha R3, TVS Apache 310RR, and none other than the Kawasaki Ninja 300 and Ninja 400 .  The price of Aprilia RS 457 So the bike is only availabl

Honda has launched the NX500 their new adventure tourer, the NX500 has everything necessary for mile-munching and adventure trips. The Honda NX500 is standing against many adventure tourers and among them, the biggest rival in my opinion is the new Royal Enfield Himalayan 450.  The new RE Himalayan 450 is loaded with features and power too, and the price of the new Himalayan 450 is very attractive as well. So, it's going to be very interesting to see which of these two bikes which one succeeds in grabbing the market, and which one you should choose.
