Royal Enfield recently launched the Indian-made Hunter 350 in the US for $3,999 (approx. ¥327,000) for monotone tones, up to $4,199 (approximately ¥343,000) for the two-tone option. The RE Hunter 350 is manufactured in India to the same global specifications and the motorcycle sold domestically and in the US shares the same underpinnings.
Built on the new J platform shared with the Meteor 350 and the new generation Classic 350, the Royal Enfield Hunter 350 draws power from a familiar 349 cc single-cylinder air-cooled electric motor tuned to 20.2 bhp at 6,100 rpm and 27 Nm at 4,000 rpm peak torque at 1000 mph, mated to a 5-speed gearbox. One of the more affordable options in the RE stable, the Hunter 350 will serve as the entry point for the Royal Enfield family of American.

The Hunter 350 is only available in Metro in the US. The entry-level Retro variant has been skipped for now. The Hunter 350 Metro gets 17-inch alloy wheels with tubeless tyres, dual-channel ABS and a larger analogue console with digital readout. In contrast, more affordable Retro models feature spoked wheels and single-channel ABS. Other hardware components include telescoping front forks, rear dual shock absorbers, disc brakes at both ends, halogen headlamps and LED taillights.
The US-spec Royal Enfield Hunter 350 weighs 181kg, the same as the Indian version, and the model is exported from the manufacturer’s factory in Tamil Nadu to various markets around the world. In addition to the United States, the Hunter 350 is sold in Indonesia, Japan, Thailand, Australia and New Zealand, France, Germany, Italy, United Kingdom, Argentina, Colombia and Mexico. The company is expected to launch the motorcycle in more markets later this year.
