Features of Royal Enfield 350
The J-platform, which is also used by the Royal Enfield Meteor 350 and Royal Enfield Classic 350, serves as the foundation for the Royal Enfield Hunter 350. The bike has a teardrop-shaped petrol tank and resembles an urban scrambler. A halogen headlamp and rounded turn indicators give the bike a neo-retro look. It has circular tail lamps and turn indicators on the back.
The bike gets a dual-tone blue and white paint job, as shown in the marketing video. The second bike in the rear is sea green with sticker work in a silver colour.
According to sources, there will be two main varieties of the Royal Enfield Hunter 350: Retro and Metro. The Royal Enfield Hunter 350 Metro variant is expected to have more features and customization possibilities than the Retro variant, which is reported to be the more economical model.
