Royal Enfield Hunter 350 To Borrow Meteor’s Instrument Cluster
The 350cc roadster will also use the Meteor 350's switchgear and powertrain as well.
The upcoming Royal Enfield Hunter 350 has been spied sporting an instrument cluster eerily similar to that of the Meteor 350.
An earlier development mule had part of the the new generation Classic 350’s cluster, but now, as development of the Hunter progresses, it seems Enfield decided it best to use the Meteor’s clocks instead.
Do not be fooled by the fonts used inside the larger dial, which we reckon is temporary, for there is no reason for the bike manufacturer to not use the same fonts as found in the Meteor’s cluster.
It would be remiss of us not to mention the Tripper navigation assist which sits to the right side of the speedometer dial. This too has been borrowed from the Meteor 350.
Having used the Meteor’s gauges to make the Royal Enfield Hunter 350 instrument cluster, the brand has also transferred the former’s switchgear to the upcoming roadster.
Spotted recently along with a development mule of the new generation Classic 350, the Hunter 350 sports a very modern design that would instantly remind one of Triumph’s Street Twin.
This particular mule had a halogen headlight, orange lens blinkers, a single-piece seat, split grab handles, upswept exhaust and a simple circular tail lamp. It also had alloy wheels, disc brakes at both ends, telescopic forks upfront and twin shocks at the back.
Like the instrument cluster and switchgear, the Hunter 350 will also borrow the engine and gearbox from the Meteor 350. The motorcycle will also get dual channel ABS as standard.
Expected to be launched in the market this year, the Hunter is likely to be priced about the same as the Honda H’ness CB350.
