Royal Enfield Hunter 350 specifications and design: Launch on Sunday
Late yesterday evening, Siddhartha Lal, the MD of Royal Enfield, revealed the brand-new and much anticipated Royal Enfield Hunter 350 on Instagram. He continued by playing the new motorcycle’s exhaust tone for the audience. At a ceremony in Thailand today, the Hunter was formally introduced. Over the next few days, we’ll also be riding the bike there for the first time. So, stay tuned for a thorough analysis. Allow us to provide all the information about that bike that has since been made public in the interim.
Engine Model: Royal Enfield Hunter 350
The Meteor 350, the new Classic 350, and the impending new-generation Bullet 350 will all use the same engine as the Hunter 350. A five-speed transmission will be mated to a 349cc SOHC two-valve air-oil-cooled J-series engine that generates 20.2 horsepower at 6,100 rpm and 27 Nm of torque at 4,000 rpm.
The Hunter features the same long-stroke architecture engine as the Meteor and Classic, as do all Royal Enfield motorcycles, but according to Royal Enfield, the fuel mapping has been adjusted for a livelier throttle response.
Brakes and suspension for a Royal Enfield Hunter 350
Lal previously told the media that although the Hunter 350 will have a J-series engine, it will be a completely different motorbike. The front suspension system consists of 41 mm forks with 130 mm of travel, and the rear suspension system consists of twin shock absorbers with a six-step preload adjustment and 102 mm of travel.
The bicycle has 17-inch wheels with a 110/70 front tyre and a 140/70 rear tyre. It has a 270 mm disc with a dual-channel ABS at the back and a 300 mm disc with a twin-piston calliper up front.
Features of the Royal Enfield Hunter 350
With a small Tripper navigation pod on the right, the new Hunter 350 has an offset instrument cluster that will only be available as an additional. A gear position indication and a service reminder are two features of the semi-digital instrument cluster. Additionally, it has a built-in USB charging port underneath the switchgear.
Design of the Royal Enfield Hunter 350
Similar to the Scram 411 and the Continental GT 650, the bike has a dual-tone finish. Additionally, it has a matte finish. The motorcycle appears to be entirely finished in black, including the alloy wheels, with the exception of the fuel tank, which is painted in two different tones. The Hunter 350 is entirely devoid of chrome, unlike the majority of classic-styled Royal Enfield motorcycles.
The turn indicators, as well as the head and tail lamps, are circular. There has a split grab rail and a single-piece seat. It appears that larger Royal Enfield motorcycles share the switchgear.
Accessories for the Royal Enfield Hunter 350 and an estimated price
Royal Enfield will introduce GMA (genuine motorcycle accessories) for the bike with the Hunter 350. These include, among other things, tail tidy, seat, bar-end mirrors, and LED indicators (which are a first for the GMA line).
When it is released, the Hunter 350 will compete with motorcycles like the TVS Ronin and Honda CB 350 RS. Prices should start at Rs. 1.7 lakh (ex-showroom).
