Royal Enfield is working on a new classic-roadster motorcycle codenamed the Hunter. It is expected to be placed in the brand's 350cc segment. Most of its features and mechanicals are expected to be shared from the brand's new J-platform motorcycle, the Meteor 350.
Ahead of its launch, the Hunter has been spotted testing yet again in Chennai. Spy images from Motorbeam showcase a partially camouflaged test mule of the upcoming motorcycle revealing new design, feature and more.
Starting with the design, from the spy images we could notice that the motorcycle has a classic-roadster look with the rider sitting up-right. Further the motorcycle feature round-shaped headlamp, taillamp, and turn signal indicators. The circular headlamp cluster will now feature an integrated LED Daytime Running Light.
It also features a long sculpted tank, well-cushioned split-seats, a muscular looking up-swept exhaust and side covers that look similar to the ones seen on the Meteor 350. We could also notice the single-pod instrument cluster with a small dial for the brand's Tripper navigation.
It uses a small TFT colour display to provide turn-by-turn navigation once paired with the smartphone via a mobile application. The main cluster unit will be reserved to provide the rest of the details such as speed, ODO, trip meter, fuel level and other telltale signs as well.
Coming to the heart of the motorcycle, the Hunter is expected to be powered by the same engine as the Meteor 350. It will be the new SOHC 349cc single-cylinder air-oil cooled SOHC engine. It produces 20.2bhp at 6100rpm and 27Nm of torque at 4000rpm and is mated to a five-speed gearbox.
With the new engine, the motorcycle is expected to carry impressive levels of refinement. The Hunter is also expected to feature the same double-cradle chassis that debuted on the Meteor 350 motorcycle.
Suspension duties on the motorcycle seem to be handled by a conventional telescopic fork with gator covers at the front and a twin-shock setup at the rear. Braking on the motorcycle is expected to be the same as seen on the new Meteor cruiser motorcycle. It is also expected to be offered with a dual-channel ABS as standard.
