The Royal Enfield Hunter 350 is expected to come with an updated 349cc, single-cylinder, two-valve, SOHC, air/oil-cooled engine. This motor produces 20.2bhp at 6,100 rpm and a maximum torque of 27Nm at 4,000 rpm. 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.
In an informal interaction in Bangkok just days before the bike is to be launched, Siddhartha Lal said, “Hunter has been in development since 2016, but the development team has been really fine tuning the chassis to offer a completely different character and personality to the bike. 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.
