Royal Enfield Hunter 350 launched at ₹1.50 lakh
Royal Enfield has launched the Hunter 350 in the Indian market at a starting price of ₹1.50 lakh for the Retro variant. The higher-spec Metro Dapper variant costs ₹1.64 lakh and the top-end variant is called Metro Rebel and it is priced at ₹1.68 lakh (all prices are ex-showroom). The Hunter 350 was one of the most awaited products from the manufacturer.
The Hunter 350 uses the same engine as the Classic 350 and the Meteor 350. The 349 cc, air-oil cooled engine produces 20.2 bhp of max power and 27 Nm of peak torque. The engine is mated to a 5-speed gearbox. Royal Enfield has retuned the fuel and ignition map of the engine to suit the characteristics of the Hunter 350. The top speed of the motorcycle is 114 kmph. The fuel tank measures 13 litres and the motorcycle weighs 181 kgs.
The design of the Hunter 350 is a slight departure from what we have seen on other Royal Enfield motorcycles. It still has a neo-retro look but with a bit of a scrambler-looking design. The motorcycle comes with a halogen circular headlamp. The instrument cluster is relatively simple and there is also a Tripper Navigation system on offer.
