Royal Enfield has announced that the Hunter 350 has achieved the sales milestone of over 1 Lakh units in India. The motorcycle took around 6 months to drive past this landmark. The most affordable model targets younger generation with little disposable income. The Hunter 350 is the third model built on the same J-Series platform, which also underpins the Classic 350 and the Meteor 350. The Hunter 350 was launched last year in two variants with prices starting at Rs 1.50 lakh for the Retro variant and Rs 1.68 lakh for the Metro with Rebel colour option. All prices are ex-showroom, Delhi. Besides India, the bike is currently on sale in Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Thailand, the UK, France, Italy, Germany, Argentina, Colombia, Mexico, Australia, and New Zealand.

The Royal Enfield Hunter 350 is 14 kilogram lighter than the Classic 350. Powered by a 349cc, single-cylinder engine, the Hunter 350 delivers 20.2bhp at 6,100rpm and 27Nm of peak torque at 4,000rpm. The engine is mated to a 5-speed gearbox.
The Retro version of the Hunter 350 runs on wire-spoked wheels, while the Metro gets alloy wheels. The bikes are supported by telescopic fork suspension at the front and dual shock absorbers at the rear. Even the tyres of both the variants differ in size. The Retro is available with 17-inch wheels wrapped in 100/80 front and 120/80 rear tyres (tubed tyres). While the Metro variant gets 17-inch units wrapped in 110/70 front and 140/70 rear tyres.
In terms of braking, the Retro comes with a rear drum brake with single-channel ABS. On the other hand, the Metro has a 270mm rear disc brake with dual-channel ABS.
