Handling And Brakes

Handling And Brakes

On Hunter 350 the suspension functions are carried out by a 41mm Telescopic fork at the front, and preload-adjustable twin shocks in the rear. The configuration is a bit weird as the rear shockers are on the stiffer side which will make it a little unpleasurable on the damaged roads. Hunter 350 comes with dual disc setup 300mm in front and 270mm.

The Honda CB350RS is built around the frame of a half-duplex cradle that rides on telescopic front forks at the front and twin hydraulic suspension in the rear. To stop, it has a 310mm disc in the front and an 240mm disc in the rear.
