New Royal Enfield Hunter 350 Retro Model vs Metro Model

The Royal Enfield Hunter 350, one of the most awaited bikes, finally made its way to the Indian market recently. The brand has introduced the Hunter 350 in two main variants called Retro and Metro. However, there is one sub-variant called Metro Rebel that has also been offered. There are plenty of differences in terms of styling and features between the two. We have made this differentiation to understand the variants better.

The first visible difference is the wheels since the most affordable base Retro variant gets wire-spoke wheels, whereas the Metro variant rides on alloy wheels. However, the wheel size is identical, but the tyre size is different. The Retro variant boasts oval-shaped Halogen turn indicators, while the Metro version gets a circular-shaped unit. On top of that, the taillight unit in the Retro version is halogen. On the other hand, the Metro version also gets an LED taillight unit.

Also, the Retro variant supports only a single-channel ABS system with a front disc and rear drum brakes. While the top-spec Royal Enfield Hunter 350 gets a dual-channel ABS system, with front and rear disc brakes.

Which is the best choice: Hunter 350 or Honda Hornet 2.0?

Both Royal Enfield Hunter 350 and the Honda Hornet 2.0 are great motorcycles in their own right. The Hunter 350 is a great bike for those looking for an affordable, yet stylish small-capacity motorcycle. It has a retro design, great handling and friendly nature that makes it attractive to new riders. On the other hand, the Hornet 2.0 has great handling dynamics and a frugal engine. It also has features such as USD fork and LED lighting which give it a premium feel. However, the lack of engine excitement may put a damper on some riders. Ultimately, we suggest that you take a test ride of both the bikes to decide which one suits you better.
