Royal Enfield Hunter 350 goes official in India: Check prices
Royal Enfield has launched the Hunter 350 in India with a starting price tag of Rs. 1.5 lakh. The retro-scrambler is available in three variants: Retro Factor, Metro Dapper, and Metro Rebel. The motorcycle is underpinned by the newly-developed J-series architecture, which it shares with the Meteor 350 and Classic 350. The two-wheeler is currently the most affordable model from the homegrown brand.
Why does this story matter?
Royal Enfield made its debut in 1901 and is making good progress with its all-new J-series platform in India. The new architecture immensely reduced the noise, vibration, and harshness (NVH) levels on the Meteor 350 and Classic 350 and improved the overall ride and handling characteristics of the motorcycles. The Hunter 350 is an all-new affordable offering from the brand using the same platform.
The motorcycle is available in 6 shades
Royal Enfield Hunter 350 sports a teardrop-shaped 13-liter fuel tank, wide handlebar, a blacked-out round headlamp unit, ribbed-pattern single-piece seat, split-type grab rails, an upswept exhaust, circular mirrors, and LED taillamp. The motorcycle houses a semi-digital instrument cluster with a Tripper Navigation unit and rides on 17-inch wheels. It is offered in six colors, including Rebel Blue, Rebel Red, Dapper White, and Dapper Gray.
It is backed by a 20hp, 349cc J-series engine
The Hunter 350 is offered with the capable 349cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled, J-series engine sourced from the Meteor 350 and Classic 350. The mill churns out a maximum power of 20.2hp, peak torque of 27Nm, and is linked to a 5-speed gearbox.
The bike is equipped with dual-channel ABS
To ensure the rider's safety, the Hunter 350 is equipped with disc brakes on both the front and rear wheels, along with dual-channel ABS for better handling on the roads. The suspension duties on the motorcycle are taken care of by 41mm telescopic forks with fork gaiters on the front and 6-step preload-adjustable twin shock absorbers on the rear end.
