This recently spotted Royal Enfield Hunter 350 development mule looks ready to enter production
The Royal Enfield Hunter 350 has been spotted on-road testing yet again and boy does it look good.
After the Meteor 350, the premium bike brand’s next high profile launch would be the new generation Classic 350 which was spied completely undisguised recently.
Another single cylinder motorcycle that the firm is working on is the Hunter, which is the model that was seen on a highway recently.
Let us not beat about the bush, the recently spotted Royal Enfield Hunter 350 seems very much inspired by Triumph’s Street Twin and thus, looks sublime.
It is modern, yet retro at the same time sporting a halogen headlight, orange lens indicators, teardrop fuel tank, single piece seat, simple circular tail light, bobbed rear mudguard and an upswept exhaust.
It has alloy wheels, telescopic front fork with rubber boots, twin rear shocks, a disc brake on each wheel, split passenger grab handles and a saree guard as well.
Although the test rider in the picture seems bogged down (it must have been a long day on the saddle), the riding position is reminiscent of a roadster.
Through previous spy shots, it has been proven that the Hunter 350 will get the same gauges and switchgear as the Meteor 350, including the Tripper navigation assist.
It should be powered by the same 349cc engine putting out 20.2 BHP and 27 Nm of torque as the Meteor 350. The 5-speed gearbox should be carried as is too.
Expected to be launched by the end of the year, the Hunter 350 could be priced on a par with the Honda H’ness CB350.
