Watsonian’s star sidecar for new Meteor

Watsonian Sidecars have expanded their range of fitting kits to include an option for the new Royal Enfield 350 Meteor.

The British sidecar manufacturer has been in business since 1912 – nearly as long as Royal Enfield has been making motorcycles (1901) – and already produces fitting kits for their most popular models, including the Bullet, Himalayan and Interceptor.

Four steel arms attach the sidecar to the Meteor’s tubular steel frame, for a secure and stable set-up that will stand the test of time. The arms are powder-coated for durability and all clamps and bolts are heavy-duty items, specifically designed and manufactured for the job.

Watsonian’s lightweight Prescott sidecar (pictured) is ideal for smaller capacity motorcycles and scooters. It sits on a tubular steel chassis, with hydraulic suspension for a smooth ride, and features a fold-down screen mounted on a bespoke aluminum casting. There’s also a handy storage space behind the seat – it tilts forward for easy access.

Watsonian fitted a Meteor front wheel to the development outfit, and colour-matched the body, for a fully integrated appearance. Every sidecar is built to order, so customers can specifiy bespoke changes from standard to suit their tastes and/or requirements.

Made in the UK to order, prices for the Prescott Sidecar start at £4,895- (including VAT) with a black gelcoat finish and the Meteor fitting kit sells for £475. Watsonian offer a full factory fitting service and are also an official Royal Enfield dealer, so can supply complete outfits.
