Royal Enfield has released yet another teaser of its upcoming motorcycle, the Royal Enfield Hunter 350. When launched, the Royal Enfield Hunter 350 motorcycle is expected to be the most affordable Royal Enfield motorcycle in the country.
The latest teaser of the Royal Enfield has teased the exhaust note of the upcoming Royal Enfield Hunter 350 motorcycle – Confirming the upcoming motorcycle features the Royal Enfield’s signature ‘thump’.
Recently, a few details of the upcoming Royal Enfield Hunter 350 motorcycle has also been leaked online confirming multiple variants as well. According to the latest leaked information, the Royal Enfield Hunter 350 motorcycle will be made available in 3 different variants in the country.
Also, the leaked details reveal that the three variants of the upcoming Royal Enfield Hunter 350 motorcycles are named Retro, Metro, and Metro Rebel. Out of these three variants, the ‘Retro’ variant is the base variant with the lowest starting price.
In order to aggressively price the Royal Enfield Hunter 350 ‘Retro’ variant, this model will be slightly different from other variants by using cost-efficient features such as spoked wheels, single-channel ABS, rear drum brakes, halogen tail lamp, basic oval-shaped halogen turn indicators, and a basic instrument cluster.
In addition to these cost-cutting features, the Royal Enfield Hunter 350 ‘Retro’ variant also uses narrower front and rear tyres. According to the leaked details, these tyres measure 100/80 R17 at the front and 120/80 R17 at the rear. Thanks to all these changes and the reduced feature list, the ‘Retro’ variant of the upcoming Royal Enfield Hunter 350 motorcycle also weighs less at 177kg.
On the other hand, the Royal Enfield Hunter 350 ‘Metro’ and ‘Metro Rebel’ variants are almost similar in their basic design features and come with more premium features such as dual-channel ABS, 270mm rear disc brakes, alloy wheels, LED tail lamp, more premium-looking round indicators, more premium switchgear and a part digital instrument cluster as in the Royal Enfield Meteor 350 motorcycle.
In addition to these upgrades, the Royal Enfield Hunter 350 ‘Metro’ and ‘Metro Rebel’ variants sport wider front and rear tyres that measure 110/70 R17, and 140/70 R17, respectively.
In terms of the specifications, we do not have to wait till the launch of the motorcycle as the previously leaked Type Approval certificate revealed most of the specifications of the upcoming Royal Enfield Hunter 350 motorcycle.
According to the leaked certificates, the upcoming Royal Enfield Hunter 350 motorcycle measures just 2,055mm long, 800mm wide, and 1,055mm tall. In addition to that, the wheelbase is also short at just 1,370mm.
Also, in terms of powertrain, the upcoming Royal Enfield Hunter 350 motorcycle uses the same 349.34cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine from the Royal Enfield Meteor 350 and Royal Enfield Classic 350 motorcycles. This engine puts out an identical 19.94bhp of peak power at 6,100rpm and 27Nm of peak torque at 4,000rpm. This engine comes paired to the same 5-speed gearbox as well. However, we are not sure the gearbox is tuned for better acceleration to suit the character of the motorcycle.
In addition to that, the leaked details also reveal that the upcoming Royal Enfield Hunter 350 motorcycle will be available in 8 different colour options as well. Out of these three variants, the Royal Enfield Hunter 350 ‘Retro’ is the base variant and it will be made available in two colour options – Factory Black, and Factory Silver. On the other hand, the ‘Metro’ variant of the upcoming Hunter 350 motorcycle will be made available in three colour options – Dapper White, Dapper Ash, and Dapper Grey.
Finally, the ‘Metro Rebel’ variant of the upcoming Royal Enfield Hunter 350 will be available in three colour options – Rebel Black. Rebel Blue, and Rebel Red. Moreover, it is worth mentioning that the ‘Metro Rebel’ variants sport a dual-tone paint job – which makes the motorcycle stand out a bit better.
