Taste Test: 2021 Royal Enfield Meteor 350 Fireball

After building their legacy models such as their Classic & Bullet 350/500s, RE is in need of moving on and modernize its entry-level line! This time RE has come up with their own take of its ‘American-style’ cruiser-ish motorcycle!

This is the all-new Meteor 350! RE’s new entry-level bike replacing the Classic/Bullet 350 in certain markets. But by no means of being archaic nor primitive like its predecessors, this might change its overall outlook to the brand!

With all the classic styling and traditional features, the Meteor also has modern tech up its sleeve! This is the only model (I think) in the market that has turn-by-turn navigation called the ‘Tripper Navigation’ system and gauge pod, on which it connects thru your phone, and by the power of Google (Maps & Places) you can tailor-made your trip without operating your phone nor have your phone on display! (Unfortunately, I never got the chance to test it during the event.)

The Meteor holds much promise especially in Asia on which is devoid of small & affordable cruiser-style motorcycles in the region! Except in countries with minimum displacement restrictions on toll expressways (like in PH).

I am excited to get on with this bike after so much fanfare and excitement! In fact, I may be the first Pinoy ‘journalist’ who will get to test ride this bike! Happy-happy me!!!

Taste Test: 2018 Harley-Davidson FLHTK Ultra Limited 107

You can’t get anymore grander than this! The FLHTK Ultra Limited is one of the trifectas of big, luxurious, monster tourers from Harley-Davidson!

With almost all the toys standard on this de-facto couples retreat cruiser, the Ultra makes it one of the icons of American motorcycle culture.

With an innovative yet torquey Milwaukee Eight 107 engine at the helm, it’s a calmer version compared to the ruckus and thirsty 114 version. With so many rivals on this ‘ultra’ luxurious Tourer category with the like like of its neighbor the Indian Roadmaster, the Japanese Honda Gold Wing, and the German BMW K1600 GTL.

Since I’ve already ridden its sibling, the Street Glide 107 on my previous video, how does this living American icon compare?

[NOTE: Of course, I’ve ridden the 2018 model when it was new. By now there were several updates of the Ultra Limited 107 since then.]

Taste Test: 2019 Harley Davidson Street Glide 107

When you mention ‘Harley-Davidson,’ what model comes to mind? Cruisers, sure it’s a synonymous trait within the motorcycling world!

The Street Glide is one of Harley’s best-selling models in its line-up! With its eye-catching colors, a plethora of electronic goodies, and with enough creature comforts for the long haul without the extra weight of a full-on Tourer like the Ultra Limited series!

This bike also shares with the Sport Glide with the ‘smallest’ Milwaukee Eight V-Twin engine, the 107 cubic inches (1.75L) spec.

Will the extra heft of the Street Glide hinder its capabilities? Will the 107 struggle? Guess you have to watch and see!

Take note, this is the ‘regular’ Street Glide model, H-D also offers a more brutish model called the CVO Street Glide!
