Royal Enfield Hunter 450 has been spotted once more. And the most recent spy photos provide a detailed look at this upcoming motorcycle. These detailed images provide an accurate representation of its hardware and features.
The suspension will include telescopic front forks and a rear mono-shock. In comparison, the Himalayan 450 will have upside-down front forks. Single discs on both ends would handle the anchoring duties, and the safety net would include a dual-channel ABS. The upcoming Royal Enfield Hunter 450 will ride on 17-inch alloy wheels with tubeless tyres, just like the current model.
Aside from the previously mentioned details, the new spy images also show the engine and the exhaust canister. The engine in this motorcycle will be shared with the Himalayan 450. As a result, it will have a 450cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine. Royal Enfield Himalayan 450's engine will produce 40 bhp and 45 Nm of peak torque. We anticipate similar output figures for the Royal Enfield Hunter 450 as well.
The test mule was also seen with a number of accessories. It includes saddle stays, a top-box mount, and touring mirrors. The spy photos also show the test mule with full-LED lighting. While the instrument cluster is hidden, we expect to see the Tripper Navigation pod in the cockpit.
The upcoming Royal Enfield Hunter 450's launch date has not yet been announced. But we could see a production-ready model by mid-2023, with a launch in the second half of the following year.
