- India launch on 7 August, 2022
- Likely to be available in at least two variants
- To use Meteor 350-sourced engine
The new Royal Enfield Hunter 350 was spotted once again ahead of its India launch. This time, the spy photographs captured the blue and white dual-tone colour on the motorcycle that resembles the Lake Blue paint theme on the Royal Enfield Himalayan. However, unlike the Himalayan, the Hunter 350 uses a matte finish instead of the glossy paint seen on the adventure tourer. Royal Enfield branding is visible on the fuel tank while the side panels feature the Hunter 350 logo.
This particular unit of the motorcycle was seen without the Royal Enfield Tipper Navigation system. However, we expect to see the Bluetooth-enabled screen on the higher variants of the Hunter 350. The motorcycle was also equipped with alloy wheels and disc brakes on both wheels. However, there will be more than one variant of the Hunter 350. A spy image from last month confirmed that the Hunter 350 will be available in at least two variants. One version will use alloy wheels while the other will come equipped with wire-spoke units. We also expect to see single-channel and dual-channel ABS variants of the motorcycle.
The official specifications aren’t available yet. However, leaked type approval documents have revealed that the new Hunter 350 will use the Meteor 350-sourced 349.34cc single-cylinder engine that will produce 19.9bhp at 6,100rpm. The new Hunter 350, once launched, will rival the likes of Yamaha FZ25, Suzuki Gixxer, and Pulsar 250 in India.
