Royal Enfield Hunter 350 Specification Revealed
The Royal Enfield Hunter 350 is finally getting ready to launch in India after all the spy photos and leaks, and the most recent indication that this is happening is that the motorcycle has received Indian homologation. Some of Hunter’s specifications have also been made public throughout this process.
The Hunter will produce exactly the same amount of power—14.87kW or 20.2hp—as this 349cc motor does in the Classic 350 and Meteor 350, according to the homologation document. As a result, it is doubtful that the state of tuning will alter significantly, and you can anticipate that the torque number will be similar to that of its siblings at around 27 Nm.
The Hunter will be smaller than both the Classic and the Meteor in terms of length and height, according to the other data on the page that relate to Hunter’s dimensions and weight. In addition, the wheelbase will be shorter, measuring 1,370mm, as opposed to 1,390mm and 1,400mm for the Classic and Meteor, respectively. Reading between the lines, Hunter’s kerb weight will be 180kg, putting it between 10 and 15 kg less than its brothers.
All of these things suggest that the Hunter will be a more controllable motorbike than its siblings, and they support rumors that the Hunter may replace the Classic as the entry-level model in the Royal Enfield lineup. Its more svelte construction ought to result in marginally faster performance.
It’s noteworthy to notice that the Meteor 350, the first motorcycle constructed on RE’s new J-platform, is classified as the “base model” and that the Hunter has been homologated as “variation No. 2” of it. It appears likely that the new Classic 350 was homologated at “variant No. 1” of the Meteor 350 based on what we can deduce from this format.
An official launch should be imminent, and you can anticipate it to happen in early August. The homologation process was finished in early July.
