Royal Enfield is working on introducing its cheapest motorcycle in the line-up. It will be called Hunter 350 and according to the new teaser it will be launched on August 7. From the leaked spy shots, it is already known that there will be multiple variants of the Hunter 350. According to some reports, the variants will be called Retro, Metro and Metro Rebel.

The base variant will get tube-type tyres with spoke wheels, single-channel ABS, rear drum brake and halogen turn indicators. The higher variants will get LED turn indicators, alloy wheels and dual-channel ABS. There is also a possibility that the LED turn indicators are offered by the manufacturer as an official accessory. Apart from the features, the paint scheme will also differ.

The Royal Enfield Hunter 350 will also get a tripper navigation system as an accessory. The switchgear and instrument cluster will be borrowed from the Scrum 311 and Meteor 350. The Hunter 350 will be based on the J-platform already used by the Classic Reborn and Meteor 350.

The engine will also be the same 349 cc, single-cylinder, long-stroke unit with air-oil cooling. It produces a maximum power of 20.2 bhp and peak torque of 27 Nm. It will be mated to a 5-speed gearbox. The manufacturer may tweak the tuning of the engine to suit the specifications of the new motorcycle. The engine and exhaust have been finished black. Where the engine may be the same, the exhaust system is brand new.

Royal Enfield Hunter 350 will measure 2,055 mm in length, 800 mm in width and 1,055 mm in height. The wheelbase of the new motorcycle is 1,370 mm which is shorter than the Classic 350 as well as the Meteor 350. The motorcycle is expected to have a good handlebar as it weighs less than other motorcycles based on the J-platform.
