Royal Enfiled has offered plenty of impressive bikes to the Indian two-wheeler market. It has been ruling the industry since its launch, dominating the 200-700cc segment, but things are not the same now as new rivals like Jawa, Yezdi, and BSA are also in.
Hence, the brand is going to introduce some new powerful bikes to the country in the coming months to maintain its regime. The new Himalayan Scram 411, a 650cc cruiser, a 650cc bobber, and the Super Meteor 650 are all included. They are also testing a new scrambler, which will most likely be known as the Hunter 350.
The test mules of the upcoming bike have been spotted numerous times, but this time the spy shots reveal a closer look and new details. The Royal Enfield Hunter 350 features a classic retro design with signature styling elements like a round headlamp, a teardrop-shaped fuel tank, a single-piece seat, and a short rear section.
Split grab rails and a short circular fender are added to the tail section, along with a round turn taillight with turn indicators. The motorcycle is outfitted with 17-inch black alloy wheels that complement the bike’s sporty attitude. Hunter’s riding posture is more upright than that of its siblings, such as Classic, but it still appears ergonomically relaxing.
Moreover, Hunter’s sporty entreaty is further enhanced by a dark theme used for its internals and running gear, with components such as the engine casing, handlebar, and suspension setup painted in black with a matte finish. An upswept muffler with a short exhaust tailpipe, circular rearview mirrors, redesigned side panels, and fork gaiters are also notable features.
The RE Hunter 350 is going to be powered by a 349cc single-cylinder air-cooled OHC engine with 20.2 hp and 27 Nm of peak torque. This motor is linked to a 5-speed gearbox through a slipper and assist clutch.
