Royal Enfield is one of the most popular two wheeler brand in the country and it looks like the Chennai-based manufacturer has preparing number of new motorcycles for the market. They will soon launch the updated 2021 version of the Classic 350 motorcycle. Royal Enfield is also seen testing a new cruiser motorcycle which will be using a 650-cc twin cylinder motor. Other than this, RE is also working on a new scrambler motorcycle which is probably going to be known as Hunter in the market. The motorcycle has been spotted testing several times and here we have a video that shows the upcoming motorcycle in motion.
The video has been uploaded by Motoholic Tamil on their YouTube channel. The video starts with vlogger following a test vehicle on a highway. The Royal Enfield Hunter is going to be a scrambler like motorcycle and is expected to compete with the likes of Honda CB Highness or Honda CB350 RS and Jawa 42 2.1. In this video, the vlogger can be seen trying his best to capture the RE Hunter on his action camera. He is successful to some extent as well.
The vlogger can be heard saying on video that the Royal Enfield Hunter has a very deep exhaust note. He says, it will be one of the best sounding 350 Royal Enfields in the market when launched. The upcoming RE Hunter scrambler will be based on a new platform like some other motorcycle in RE’s stable. As this is a scrambler motorcycle, the rider has an upright riding position.
The motorcycle gets a small mudguard at the rear with round tail lamps placed right behind the single piece seat. The turn indicators are also placed on either side of it. As this is a scrambler motorcycle, it does expose the rear chunky tyre which wraps the blacked out alloy wheels. The body is completely camouflaged but, it does give us an idea on how the overall design of the motorcycle is going to be. Royal Enfield Hunter gets a egg an oval shaped fuel tank and a single piece wide seat.
The front gets round headlamps and just like at the front, the turn indicators are placed next to it. Whether they will get an LED ring inside the headlamp just like Meteor is something that we all will have to wait and see. Royal Enfield introduced the tripper meter on their Meteor 350 motorcycle that was launched last year. The same was seen in 2021 RE Himalayan as well.
The upcoming RE Hunter is also expected to get a similar sort of instrument cluster. It will get a semi-digital, semi-analog instrument cluster with google powered Tripper meter. It will be powered by a 349-cc, single cylinder, air-cooled engine that generates 20.2 Hp and 27 Nm of peak torque. It will be mated to a 5-speed gearbox. Royal Enfield has currently not announced anything about this upcoming motorcycle but, it is expected to hit the market some time later next year. When it comes to pricing, Royal Enfield is expected to offer the Hunter at a competitive price tag.
