Royal Enfield captures a huge market in the cruiser segment. They have the Bullet, the Classic 350 and the Meteor as of now which bring in good sales for them. RE last launched the Scram 411 and is ready with their next bike launch. This bike is touted to be the cheapest Royal Enfield that you will be able to buy once it launches. What is this bike? We are talking about the new Hunter 350. In this article, we have listed all the details of the Royal Enfield Hunter 350 including its launch details.
The Royal Enfield Hunter 350 is expected to be a comfortable cruiser motorcycle. The spy shots have revealed that the handlebars have been set slightly lower. This is in turn expected to make the handlebars easy to reach. Also, footpegs seem to have been set in a comfortable and neutral position. Overall, we expect that it would be an easy highway runner.
The Royal Enfield Hunter 350 will be powered by the same engine that the updated Classic 350 and the Meteor 350 get. This is a 349cc, air-cooled, single-cylinder engine that makes 20bhp & 27Nm of torque. This engine would mostly be mated to a five-speed manual gearbox. Being from the Royal Enfield stable, we can expect strong initial torque from this bike.
Royal Enfield Hunter 350 – Features
Royal Enfield is doing very well by offering many modern features. We expect the Hunter 350 to get a similar MID as the Meteor 350. The instrument cluster might show information like an analog speedometer, fuel level indicator, clock, odometer, and two trip metres. Along with this, it might also get a round colour display with Bluetooth phone connectivity.
Royal Enfield Hunter 350 – Price and Launch
As far as launch is concerned, there are rumours around that the Hunter 350 could launch in the month of August. This means that this would be their second bike launch in a span of five months. We expect this bike to start from somewhere around Rs 1.70 lakhs (on-road, Mumbai).
