- Royal Enfield Hunter 350 spied again
- Test mule had most of its body panels covered
- Likely to be the most affordable offering from RE
One of the Royal Enfield’s upcoming motorcycles, the Hunter 350, has been spotted testing once again. It has been sighted on multiple occasions in the past. However, the latest test mule had all of its body panels hidden which might be an indication that the final design is taking shape and the brand intends to keep it under wraps.
From what we have seen in the previously emerged spy shots, the Hunter 350 boasts a retro roadster design but with certain modernity. Most of its components are finished in black which gives it a factory custom appeal. There’s a circular headlamp, peanut-shaped fuel tank, a single-piece seat, and alloy wheels. Similar to the new Classic 350, it seems to offer an upright riding position.
The Hunter 350 will surely be based on RE’s new J platform which has been utilised for the Meteor 350 and the new Classic 350. This platform comprises a double-cradle frame holding a 349cc, single-cylinder engine that churns out 20.2bhp of power and 27Nm of peak torque. It comes mated to a five-speed gearbox.
The Hunter 350 is likely to be targeted at new riders and women motorcyclists so it’s expected to boast lighter weight and lower seat height for easy accessibility. Once launched, it might also be the most affordable Royal Enfield in India.
