Royal Enfield is all set to launch its new motorbike the Hunter 350 in Nepal. Royal Enfield has already launched its most accessible model the Hunter 350 in the Indian market. Bookings for the Hunter 350 are set to open in the coming days while the deliveries will commence by the beginning of 2023. The Hunter 350 is set to become the most affordable Royal Enfield bike in Nepal. It is a retro classic motorcycle that will be the third bike from Royal Enfield that shares the J-platform engine. The Hunter 350 is offered in two variants, Retro (base variant) and Metro (top variant).
The new Hunter 350 is powered by a 349cc, air-cooled, single-cylinder engine that generates a maximum power of 20.2 bhp at 6,100 rpm and 27 Nm torque at 4,000 rpm. This engine is mated to a five-speed gearbox. The braking system comes with a twin-piston 300 mm front and single-piston 270 mm rear disc brakes while the Metro variant gets dual-channel ABS as opposed to single-channel on the Retro variant. The bike is equipped with a telescopic fork along with a dual shock absorber.
Royal Enfield has equipped the Hunter 350 with a semi-digital instrument console - circular speedometer with a mix of analogue and digital display, tripper navigation pod, a single-piece seat, a teardrop-shaped fuel tank, a round shape for the headlamp, and a tail lamp. It gets the 17-inch spoke or alloy wheels that are wrapped in tubeless or tube tires depending on the variant. It also features easy-to-reach handlebars and a slightly rear-biased footpeg. The motorcycle comes with a low seat height of 800 mm and carries a kerb weight of around 190-195kg.
The price of Royal Enfield Hunter 350 in Nepal is expected to be around NRs. 5 - NRs. 6 lakhs.
