The Hunter 350 is styled to appear like a typical retro roadster. It is quite attractive. It comes with the round halogen headlamp, teardrop-shaped fuel tank with 13 litres of capacity and a seat that is flat and a small side panel that have Hunter 350 branding, and a sleek tail section that features an oblong tail-lamp. Many will love the Hunter for its simple design. The model we’ve tried is the more expensive Metro model with the Dapper Ash colour scheme, which we believe suits the bike particularly well. The basic Retro version available which has a more basic paint patterns and wire spokes. Regarding quality, we have found the finish of the paint and the switchgear of Hunter to be good. Hunter to be of good quality in particular, in light of the price.
The Metro model comes with alloys of 17 inches as well as the USB charging port as well as 2 trip meters two-channel ABS, an additional Tripper Navigation pod as well as hazard lights , and an LED tail light. The base Retro version is more limited in its features, including an instrument cluster that is simpler that has a single channel ABS. It also comes with drum brakes at the rear and slimmer tyres, an LED tail-light with halogen, rectangular indicators, and the tubular grab rail.
Royal Enfield Hunter 350 Performance and fuel efficiency
As a J-series model Hunter 350 Hunter 350 gets the same 349cc single-cylinder engine that is the power behind those Classic as well as Meteor 350s. It produces 20hp and 27Nm that is sufficient for an engine of this size and it comes with a 5-speed transmission. RE claims that it has altered the engine’s map to match the Hunter’s specifications better, and it’s more responsive than its two other models. The engine is a smooth and powerful unit that we’ve come to love. It’s got a nice low-end pull, never gets stressed and, on this Hunter model, it has a pleasant sounding raspy.

Royal Enfield Hunter 350 for ride and handling
The brand new Hunter 350 can seat you as any other J-platform model because the pegs are a little rear-set and there’s a slight incline towards the handlebar. However, overall, it can be described as having a comfy riding position, with a touch of sportiness
The suspension functions on motorcycles are carried out by a 41mm Telescopic fork at the front, and preload-adjustable twin shocks in the rear. However, it’s not the forks that are the problem, but rather the configuration. While the front part feels comfortable and absorbent, the rear is incredibly rigid. It isn’t easy when driving over a damaged area of road, or irregular expansion joints either in a low or high speed.

Royal Enfield Hunter 350: verdict
A few already RE owners might still prefer the bigger and more sluggish Classic and Meteor However, I don’t believe it’s the case that Hunter 350 was designed for these types of riders in the first place. The Hunter is designed for those who wish to be part of in the Royal Enfield fold and don’t need a bike that is too heavy or intimidating to handle.
