If there is one motorcycle that has been catching the attention of the automotive paparazzi the most these days, then it has to be the Royal Enfield Hunter 350. The upcoming roadster/scrambler model from the Chennai-based manufacturer that is set to be launched in India in the coming months has been spied testing again somewhere down south. This time around, the spy images, credit Motor Vikatan, are one of the clearest ones yet and hence, reveal a lot of details about this soon-to-be-launched model. As one can see in the pictures, the Hunter 350 gets a rounded headlamp with a chrome bezel along with rounded turn indicators. Moreover, you can see the front fork gaiters and the rearview mirrors carry a rounded shape too.
Y-shaped alloy wheels have been fitted at both ends and the bike gets a single-piece seat that should be good enough for reasonably long distances. The upcoming Royal Enfield Hunter 350, in all certainty, will be based on the ‘J’ platform that also underpins the Meteor 350. Moreover, the engine is also expected to the same 349cc unit that certainly impressed us with its cruising abilities.
Now, very interestingly, the Hunter 350 was accompanied by a Himalayan that may or may not be an updated model set to arrive sometime early next year. There is also a possibility that Royal Enfield is currently testing the accessorized version of the Himalayan and the optional bits might be offered with the bike soon. Talking of the exact changes, the Himalayan seen in the pictures gets a single piece scooped up seat against a split set up on the existing model. Moreover, you can notice the elevated exhaust set up and the front fender also appears to be a redesigned unit. The Himalayan has always been an extremely versatile motorcycle but we enthusiasts have been wishing for more power and that will certainly make it an even better and interesting proposition.
Listening to our prayers, let’s hope Royal Enfield makes some changes on the engine front and the next update of the Himalayan comes out as per our expectations. More details on the new Royal Enfield Hunter 350 and the Himalayan expected to be out in the coming days, so keep watching this space for all the action.
