The specs of the upcoming Royal Enfield Hunter 350 have been leaked ahead of launch
Ahead of its launch on 4th August, the specs of the upcoming Royal Enfield Hunter 350 have been leaked online via a type-approval document. Interestingly, it produces the same power as the Meteor 350 and the new generation Classic 350.
As per the document, Hunter 350 exerts a maximum power of 14.87 kW (20.2 HP) at 6100 RPM which is exactly the same number for the other 2 Royal Enfields. The biggest change, however, is in the dimensions. This is by far the smallest Royal Enfield of late.
The length, width, height, and wheelbase of the Hunter 350 are 2055 mm, 800 mm, 1055 mm, and 1370 mm. Contrary to this, the Classic 350’s dimensions are 2145 mm, 785 mm, 1090 mm, and 1390 mm respectively. Meteor 350’s dimensions are 2160 mm, 840 mm, 1165 mm, and 1455 mm respectively.
Even when the dimensions of the Hunter 350 are compared with that of the other Royal Enfields, the upcoming bike is, still, the smallest. With this, the Hunter 350 has lived up to the claim that it’s intended for youth who don’t want a big bike.
The lower wheelbase could have been achieved with the use of a shorter swing arm as evident from the leaked images of the bike. Even the front fork rake seems to be quite lesser. And this setup should make the bike an amazing street fighter.
As the 350 cc J series engine is already known for some serious roll-on acceleration capabilities in the lower power band, the Hunter 350 should be super fun to ride at least in the city.
Reports say, Hunter will become the cheapest bike in Royal Enfield’s portfolio commanding an ex-showroom price somewhere between Rs. 1.3 to 1.4 lakhs, that’s lower than the price of the current cheapest Royal Enfield Bullet series by around Rs. 10,000/-.
The roadster is underpinned by the brand’s, now mainstream, J series platform and has been codenamed JIC1. The Hunter will also get a cheaper variant codenamed J1C2.
J1C2 is expected to get single disc with single channel ABS, same as the Bullet 350s and Royal Enfield Classic 350 Redditch series. The rear wheel will sport 153 mm drum brake. The J1C1, on the other hand, will get proper rear disc and dual-channel ABS.
