Royal Enfield Hunter 350 spied testing again: All you need to know about the upcoming motorcycle | Automobiles News

Royal Enfield, the iconic bike maker has been working towards a complete overhaul of the entire product lineup in India. After launching the 650 twins – company’s most powerful motorcycle duo; Meteor – a brand new motorcycle, and the all-new Classic 350 – one of the best selling Royal Enfield’s ever, the Chennai based manufacturer is now working to launch the Hunter 350, another product based on the Meteor and Classic 350, but with a different styling.

The new motorcycle is being developed for more city-oriented riding conditions and has been spied testing multiple times in India. Recently, the motorcycle was caught testing on video with speed exceeding 120 kmph, as per the uploader of the video on YouTube. Here’s a bit of understanding about the upcoming product and what the buyers should expect- 

Platform

The new Royal Enfield Hunter 350 will be based on the new J platform that underpins the Meteor 350. The new J platform consists of a double cradle frame that makes the bike stronger, stiffer, more durable and with better stability.

Design

Multiple spy shots of the motorcycle have surfaced online giving us an idea of what it will look like. Despite its similarities to Meteor 350, the Hunter 350 will have a more upright stance better suited for city riding. It gets rounded halogen headlamp unit, 10-spoke alloy wheels, a different seat height and fork gaiters. Expect a slightly different design for the fuel tank and dual tone paint scheme.

Features

Despite being a new bike, the Royal Enfield Hunter 350 will now sport the new Tripper Navigation as seen in the Meteror 350. Apart from that, spy images show that the new bike has asymmetrically mounted semi-digital instrument console with an analog speedometer.

Engine specs

The new Hunter 350 will share engine and gearbox with the new Meteor which means it gets a 349cc air-cooled single-cylinder engine. The engine can generate 20.2 bhp and 27 Nm output. The engine is paired with a 5-speed gearbox for power transmission. Expect dual channel ABS and dual discs as standard equipment, while for suspension duty, it will get a telescopic front fork and twin shock absorbers at the rear.

Price and competition

The upcoming Royal Enfield Hunter 350 is expected to be launched in H1 2022 and will go up against the likes of Honda CB350RS. Expect it to be priced between Rs 1.70 lakh and Rs 1.90 lakh (ex-showroom).
