Some of you may remember that last year Royal Enfield announced that they would be launching a new motorcycle every 3 months. Hence, the new generation Himalayan, new Classic 350, Scram 411 and the Royal Enfield series of bicycles were launched.
So, we are curious as to which new Royal Enfield motorcycle will be launched next in this line. As Chennai-based Royal Enfield has tested a number of new 650cc motorcycles, the new generation Bullet 350 and the all-new Himalayan 450 over the past few months.
However, according to the information we have, the next motorcycle to be launched from the Royal Enfield brand is the Hunter 350. Because Royal Enfield has been testing the Hunter 350 motorcycle for almost the last 2 years. In that case, below you can find the license certificate of the new Hunter 350 bike that has been leaked on the internet.
As per the specifications mentioned in the image of this document, the overall length of the Royal Enfield Hunter 350 bike is 2,055mm, width 800mm and height 1,055mm. The wheelbase, i.e. the distance between the two wheels, is 1,370 mm. The total weight of the bike is 360 kg. According to these details, the new Hunter 350 is 85mm shorter than the Royal Enfield Meteor 350 bike.
Additionally, the new Hunter 350 will be 45mm in width and height and 85mm shorter than the Meteor model. Because of this, the wheelbase is also 30mm different between the two Royal Enfield motorcycles. This means that, compared to the classic 350 bike, the Hunter 350 bike is 90mm shorter and 35mm shorter. But 15mm is extra wide.
We expect the new Hunter 350 bike to be priced at Rs 1.6 lakh ex-showroom. The Hunter 350 was introduced as a roadster bike suitable for long-distance travel. A number of new long-distance touring motorcycles in the 250cc-350cc range have joined the Indian market in recent years. For example, the latest Ronin model from TVS Motor.
Like other Royal Enfield bikes, the new Hunter 350 model is built on a dual mount frame. The Hunter 350 is said to be launched in two variants – single-channel ABS and dual-channel ABS – and will be offered with telescopic forks at the front and dual shock absorbers at the rear for suspension.
According to reports, a 349cc single cylinder OHC air & oil cooled engine is expected to power the new Hunter model. This engine is mated to a 5-speed transmission that produces a maximum power of 20 HP and 27 Nm of torque. We also expect the Tripper navigation connectivity feature introduced on the Meteor 350 bike in this new roadster bike.
A semi-digital cluster to provide turn-by-turn directions called Tripper Navigation will be provided in the center console area of the bike. All the pictures of the Hunter 350 bike you see in this news were taken during one of its trials. This spy image is almost 1.5 years old.
Royal Enfield has made several changes to the Hunter’s design and is now in its final stages. Coming out after months of testing, the new Hunter 350 is expected to handle Indian roads better than the current Royal Enfield Classic 350 and Meteor 350 bikes.
