The Royal Enfield Hunter 350 has been spied yet again!
Bike fanatics have been reading about and viewing pictures of the upcoming Royal Enfield Hunter for about 2 years now. Since road tests of the motorcycle continue to take place, the 350cc model has been spotted once again. But this time, there’s something new.
Two development mules of the Hunter 350 were recently spied. Both 2-wheelers had the same styling as the previously seen test mules with retro-style bodywork that does remind one of a motorcycle range from a British manufacturer.
However, the recently spied Royal Enfield Hunter 350 test mules had rectangular indicators than the previous circular ones, a single-piece grab handle instead of split jobbies and wire-spoked wheels in the place of alloy rims.
They did not come with gaiters for the telescopic forks up front either and the bezel for the circular headlamp comes in chrome rather than being painted in black.
Based on the premium bike maker’s J-series platform, the Hunter 350, it seems, will come with the same switchgear as the Meteor 350 and similar instrument dials, one of which is for the Tripper navigation assist.
It should be powered by a 349cc engine good for a maximum of 20.2 BHP and 27 Nm of peak torque. The transmission will be a 5-speed unit. This powertrain has proven to be a robust setup far.
Expect the premium bike manufacturer to unveil the Hunter 350 sometime this year. When it gets launched, the bike should help Enfield extend its lead in the 350cc and above segment.
