Five things you SHOULD know about new Hunter 350

Royal Enfield has unveiled the all-new Hunter 350 ahead of its Indian launch. Although built on the same platform as the Meteor 350, the Hunter 350 gets slightly different hardware. Here we tell you five things that you should know about the new Royal Enfield Hunter 350.

Royal Enfield Hunter 350 Styling

The new Royal Enfiled Hunter 350 packs design elements such as a round shape for the headlight, round rear-view mirrors, 13-litre tear-drop-shaped fuel tank, asymmetrically-mounted instrument cluster with the Tripper navigation system as an optional extra, 800mm tall single-piece seat, and a compact exhaust canister. The company will offer a bunch of optional accessories that could be used to further enhance styling and comfort levels. These include a flyscreen, bar-end mirrors, a flat seat, side pannier, pillion backrest, and engine crash protectors.

Royal Enfield Hunter 350 Variants

The motorcycle will be offered in two variants – Metro and Retro. The Metro version rides on alloy wheels, uses a twin disc setup, and gets LED taillight and dual-channel ABS. The Retro variant, on the other hand, gets wire-spoke units, a drum brake at the back, bulb-type taillight, and a single-channel ABS. Apart from the differences mentioned above, the two variants are distinguished through their respective colours. The Metro version gets a dual-tone finish while the Retro variant features a single-tone paint theme. Needless to say, the Metro version will retail at a higher price tag while the Retro version, with its relatively lower-spec hardware, will be available at an affordable price tag.

Royal Enfield Hunter 350 Engine, Performance, and Fuel Economy

Similar to the Meteor 350, the new Hunter 350, too, uses a 349cc, single-cylinder, two-valve, SOHC, air/oil-cooled engine. Linked to a five-speed gearbox, the motor delivers 20.2bhp at 6,100rpm and 27Nm of peak torque at 4,000rpm. The top speed is rated at 114kmph while the claimed fuel economy stands at 36.2kmpl.

The Hunter 350 is built around a twin downtube spine frame and it uses 41mm telescopic front forks and six-step preload-adjustable rear springs to handle the suspension duties. The braking setup on the Metro variant includes a 300mm single disc with a twin-piston caliper at the front and a 270mm rotor with a single-piston caliper at the rear. This version also gets 17-inch alloy wheels which are wrapped in 110/70-section front and 140/70-section rear tubeless tyres. The 17-inch wire-spoke wheels on the Retro variant, on the other hand, are shod in 100/80-section front and 120/80-section rear tube-type tyres.
