Royal Enfield plans to launch its new 350 cc motorcycle in India tomorrow. The company has revealed the new Hunter 350 version, which will be available in two variants- Retro and the Metro.
The company has been teasing details of it recently as a part of its pre-launch marketing campaign. But Royal Enfield finally opened up on what will be on offer with the bike after all the teasing and secrecy.
Both these variants will have 349cc, single-cylinder, two-valve, SOHC, air/oil-cooled engine with solid torque of 27 Nm @ 4000 rpm, while Royal Enfield claims that the bike offers a mileage of 36.2kmpl. Again both the variants will have five-speed transmission.
Royal Enfield claims to have a top speed of 114 kmph. Out of the two versions, the Metro gets high-end hardware with disc brakes and alloy wheels having dual-channel ABS, while the taillight is LED.
While the Retro gets single-channel ABS, the rear wheel gets the drum brakes with bulb taillight. Further, the Retro will arrive with the spoke wheels.
Although RE hasn’t officially disclosed details about the bike’s accessories or pricing, it’s expected that pricing will be kept competitive and close to its rival.
The Royal Enfield Hunter will be available in two variants of 350 cc – Hunter Retro and Hunter Metro. The Scrambler style has inspired both these motorcycles, and while the Retro will have a single-tone paint job, the Metro version will come with dual-tone paint schemes.
The Royal Enfield Hunter 350 is a long-awaited addition to the local swadeshi motorcycle range.
While we have seen importers bringing in a couple of different brands for a long time now, the presence of Royal Enfield has been reassuring enough that there is room for a locally assembled premium motorcycle from India.
The Royal Enfield Hunter 350 India price is in line with earlier reports and echoes bookings by enthusiasts anticipating a new-gen Royal Enfield with an all-new style and design.
