Royal Enfield Hunter 350 Arrives in Australia

Royal Enfield’s third member of their 350 family, the Hunter has arrived locally in Australia. Debuted earlier this year in Bangkok at it’s global launch, the Hunter represents the entry point to the 350 range with prices for the two distinct variants starting from $6,440 plus on road costs.

This urban motorcycle has already received fantastic feedback from customers in Thailand, Indonesia and India. At first glance, you’ll notice the Hunter 350 is a fun, tactile motorcycle where old-school charm meets new-age vibes. Fire it up and you’ll be greeted with an appealing burble that transforms into a pleasing growl as you accelerate away.

Scythe through congested streets thanks to its compact geometry, nimble steering and confident braking. Take it beyond the city limits and this remixed roadster will glide along the straights on its wide alloys and tubeless tyres.

There are six colourways across two editions on the Metro Hunter. The Dapper Edition features a selection of three chic tank colours and graphics options, whilst the top-of-the-range edition – called the Rebel Edition- is finished with a choice of three of the most distinctive and disruptive petrol tank designs ever to adorn a Royal Enfield.

Both the Dapper and Rebel editions are equipped with alloy wheels and wider 110/70 x 17” front and 140/70 x 17” rear tubeless tyres for superior handling and muscular good looks, 300mm front and 270mm rear disc brakes, dual channel ABS, and a handy centre-stand.

An LED tail lamp and premium digital-analogue instrument cluster that displays an odometer, trip meter, gear indicator, fuel graph bar with low fuel warning, clock and a service reminder complete this stylish package.

All Hunter editions feature uncluttered handlebar controls, their rotary power and lighting switches giving a gentle nod to the past, and are fitted with a USB charging port. The chassis geometry on the Hunter 350 is designed to give the optimal height-to-weight ratio while offering superior comfort, thanks to its wide, long, one-piece seat.

With revised rake and trail angles, a low 800mm seat height and a shorter wheelbase, Hunter’s exceptional manoeuvrability encourages greater confidence when carving through cramped streets and feels planted and stable in every location and situation.

The Hunter is powered by the modern, globally acclaimed 349cc air-oil cooled single-cylinder J-series engine, recently launched on the Meteor and Classic 350. Fuel-injected, it produces  15kW (20.2 bhp) at 6100 rpm and 27 Nm of torque at 4000 rpm resulting in strong, low-end grunt, super smooth linear power delivery with an engine calibration to give a lively throttle response and a distinctive exhaust note to suit the character of the Hunter.

With a primary balancer shaft to cut down vibrations, it feels both responsive and refined while its gear shifting is crisp and smooth thanks to an optimised 5-speed gearbox. Aimed at a younger lifestyle and motorcycling audience, the Hunter is available to order online
through pre-registration.

Complimenting the trendy looks is a collection of purpose-built Lifestyle Apparel and Genuine Motorcycle Accessories specific to the Hunter 350. The new Hunter 350 Dapper will be priced at AUD 6,440 plus on-road costs, and the Hunter 350 Rebel will be priced at AUD 6,540 plus on-road costs. The Hunter 350 will come with a 3-year unlimited kilometre warranty, and 3 years roadside assistance.
