The Royal Enfield Hunter 350 will likely be available in Rebel Blue, Rebel Red, Rebel Black, Dapper Ash, Dapper White, and Dapper Grey. According to Sid Lal’s video, the fuel tank will have a dual-tone paint job, while the rest of the body will be one color.
The Royal Enfield Hunter 350 is expected to come with an updated 349cc, single-cylinder, two-valve, SOHC, air/oil-cooled engine. In this motor, 20.2bhp is produced at 6,100 rpm, and 27Nm at 4,000 rpm is the maximum torque. With a claimed fuel efficiency of 36.2 km/l, the top speed is 114 kmph.
The Hunter 350 will compete against the Honda CB350 RS and the Yezdi Scrambler – motorcycles that are aimed at younger buyers. The testing mule of the Royal Enfield Hunter 350 has been spotted numerous times on Indian roads. The Royal Enfield Hunter 350 is expected to be one of the Royal Enfield’s more affordable motorcycles and is anticipated to cost around Rs 1 lakh.
Siddhartha Lal said in an informal interview just days before the bike is to be launched, “Hunter has been in development since 2016, but the development team has been fine-tuning the chassis to give it a completely different personality.” The chassis guys have been tuning, re-tuning the bike to make it what it is. It’s agile, fun and hopefully you will enjoy riding it as much as we enjoyed developing it.” “It may have the J-series engine, but it’s a completely all-new bike, with a new character and personality”, he added.
