Upcoming Royal Enfield Hunter 350 launch date may fall somewhere in the second half of June 2022. The roadster is expected to be slotted below the Meteor 350…
So, it has been 3 months since Royal Enfield launched their latest offering – Scram 411 – in our market. And according to their announcement last year, they will be launching a new product in India every 3 months.
2022 Royal Enfield Hunter 350 Launch in June
If the sources are correct, the upcoming Royal Enfield Hunter 350 will make its debut in the Indian motorcycle market somewhere in the second half of June 2022.
The information shared above has been given in whispers by an RE dealer to one of the online portals. However, do note that nothing is official yet from the company and there is concrete evidence of the same till now.
Upcoming Royal Enfield Hunter 350 Highlights
The upcoming Hunter 350 will be a roadster model from Royal Enfield and will be powered by their new J-series 350 cc engine. This new refined motor made its debut on the Classic Reborn model last year.
Based on the same platform, the Hunter 350 will boast a retro-roadster look and will possess elements like round headlight, round rear-view mirrors and small oval-shaped tank.
The roadster charm continues throughout with round tail-light & turn indicators, fork gaiters, twin-shocks at the rear, small fenders, single-unit seat that follows the curve of the tail section and a small exhaust unit.
Overall, the Hunter looks to be a compact motorcycle – similar to the Honda CB350 RS.
However, there are speculations that the Hunter might come in two variants. This speculation rose because recently a pair of Hunter 350 test-bikes were spotted with rectangular turn-indicators, spoked rims and dual-purpose tyres.
These test-bikes showcased the versatile side of the upcoming Hunter 350, hinting that the Hunter could don multiple avatars, according to the needs of the owner.
Other details that we noticed on the Hunter were single disc setup at the front and rear, alloy rims (spoked rims in one instance), raised handle-bars, low seat-height coupled with centrally-mounted foot-pegs.
Feature-wise, Hunter can sport their tripper navigation pod (optional) along with the semi-digital instrumentation, dual-channel ABS, USB charger and Bluetooth connectivity.
It is expected that the Hunter 350 will be offered at Rs. 1.7 Lakh (ex-showroom) and will take on the likes of Yezdi Roadster, Jawa Forty Two 2.1, the Honda CB350RS, and probably the upcoming Triumph-Bajaj bike.
