The classic, cult motorcycle brand, Royal Enfield is all set to launch an all-new motorcycle in the Indian market! The Royal Enfield Hunter 350 will launch in India soon and it will be the cheapest model in the RE lineup. Here’s everything you need to know about the Royal Enfield Hunter 350!
The Hunter looks different and modern but it still screams Royal Enfield. RE has tried to turn this bike into a retro-looking urban bike, and they’ve done a decent job doing so. There are minimal add-ons on this motorcycle, which means you get what you see. There are no added sharp elements, just a plain design that looks very charming. All the lights on this bike are rounded off, but the size of these lights has become more compact. The handlebar is a bit more front-set than the other Enfields, and the footpegs are centre-set. This makes a more focused riding posture when compared to the Meteor 350.
The engine on the Royal Enfield Hunter 350
The Hunter gets the same 350cc engine that we see on the Meteor and the Classic. It’s a single cylinder motor that produces 19HP and 27nm. This engine has certainly evolved over the years. NVH levels have reduced and it feels smoother. Yes, there are some vibrations when you reach higher RPMs, but these bikes aren’t meant to be revved, are they?
Features and Variants
The Royal Enfield Hunter 350 gets 3 variants – Retro, Metro, and Metro Rebel. The detailed features are not revealed yet, but we do have an idea about some. The Hunter will get dual-channel ABS, RE’s tripper system with Bluetooth connectivity, and a LED headlight. It will come with both alloy and steel wheels, depending on the variant.
Pricing and Competition
The expected pricing for this bike is around Rs. 1.3 Lakhs. This means that the primary competition for this retro-urban motorcycle will be the Yamaha FZ series, TVS Apache RTR200, and the Yamaha MT15.
