Royal Enfield is set to begin 2024 with a slew of launches. While the Shotgun 650 is still a few days away, the bike maker has expanded its Hunter 350 lineup with the addition of two new colours; Dapper Green, and Dapper Orange. Both the new paint schemes are available on the higher-spec Metro variant. You can buy a new Royal Enfield Hunter 350 with either of these paint schemes, with prices starting from Rs 1.69 lakh (ex-showroom).
The rest of the motorcycle remains unchanged, which is not a bad thing at all. Sharing the same 349 cc single-cylinder engine, the Hunter 350 produces 20.2 bhp at 6100 rpm, while 2.75 kgm of torque comes in at 4000 rpm. Since both colours are available in the Metro variants, you get alloy rims and tubeless tyres, instead of the spoke rims-tube tyre setup of the base Retro variant. It also packs in a rear disc brake and dual-channel ABS, along with an LED tail-lamp. However, the navigation pod is available as a paid accessory.
Effectively the entry point in Royal Enfield’s lineup, the Hunter 350 isn’t just the most affordable, but also the lightest, weighing 14 kg less than the Classic 350 thanks to a revised chassis. This makes it a great city bike, and you can read more about it in our review.
Stay tuned for our 25th anniversary issue coming soon!
