Royal Enfield Hunter 350 now available in two new colours
Royal Enfield has launched two new colour options for their internationally successful retro bike, the Hunter 350. The Hunter 350 has been available in six colours over three trim levels, the new additions take that total up to eight. Fully blacked out hardware is common across all three trims.
The Hunter 350 differentiates itself in the 350cc segment through its compact form factor, which makes it accessible to smaller riders and allows easy riding in urban conditions. Wheelbase is set at 1370mm with a 150mm ground clearance. The 790mm seat height facilitates an upright riding position. The Hunter 350 weighs 181kg wet with a 13-litre fuel capacity. 17-inch front and rear alloy wheels (spoked wheels on the base model) are suspended by a 41mm telescopic fork with 130mm travel at the front and a twin shock setup with 102mm travel at the rear. The ‘Dapper’ trim level gets front (300mm) and rear (270mm) disc brakes with dual-channel ABS.
The mechanicals remain unchanged, the Hunter 350 is still powered by a 2V SOHC air-oil cooled 349cc BS6-compliant single-cylinder engine producing 20.2bhp at 6100rpm of power and 20Nm of torque. Power is sent to the wheels through a 5-speed transmission. The Dapper O and Dapper G colours are only available on the ‘Metro’ trim which features alloy wheels instead of spoked wheels, tubeless tyres, and front/rear disc brakes equipped with dual-channel ABS, apart from some aesthetic differences. Royal Enfield claim a fuel efficiency of 36.2kmpl for the Hunter 350.
The Royal Enfield Hunter 350 in Dapper O and Dapper G starts at Rs 1.69 lakh ex-showroom. This puts is approximately Rs 20,000 over the base model Hunter 350, which costs Rs 1.49 lakh and Rs 5,000 under the top-end ‘Rebel’ trim, which costs Rs 1.74 lakh.
