Whilst other manufacturers are trying to get in on the 350-450cc cool retro bike action, there is still only one leader of the pack…and that is the Royal Enfield HNTR 350.
Royal Enfield are fast becoming the movers and shakers in the motorcycle world. Whilst they do not occupy top spot in terms of unit sales even within their domestic Indian market, they are the manufacturer that has the greatest global presence and highly regarded by many riders both near and far.
The HNTR 350 is now being targeted by the likes of Triumph/Bajaj and Harley-Davidson/Hero to see if they can eat away at their market share in the 350cc+ class of bikes but they will take some beating especially on the cool looks and price too.
This from Royal Enfield…
ALL THE INTENSE FLAVOURS OF PURE MOTORCYCLING PACKED INTO A FUN, STYLISH, NEW MACHINE
The HNTR 350 rider-first ergonomics, revised rake angle and low centre of gravity have been designed to let you effortlessly manoeuvre the streets of the world’s coolest neighbourhoods. An intuitive throttle response guarantees unprecedented agility with every flick of the wrist.
With its shorter wheelbase, lighter weight and tighter geometry, the HNTR 350 frame is fitted with a super maneuverable set of wheels, a hip retro-metro aesthetic and a 350cc J-engine that packs extra muscle for every hustle.
At the heart of the HNTR 350 beats a fuel-injected, long-stroke 350cc J-engine that delivers a smoother ride, higher RPM and dollops of torque. Paired with a steady downtube spine frame and grounded suspension, the HNTR 350 gives the right amount of power and precision, whether you’re revving up the city streets or gunning down the motorway.
A shoutout to the analogue era but perfectly in sync for modern-day riding, the HNTR 350 features a retro-style speedometer along with a digital LCD screen that tells you everything you need to know and is compatible with the Royal Enfield Tripper Navigation System
(as of writing…Due to the ongoing global chip shortage, Royal Enfield has discontinued factory fitted Tripper for its motorcycle models. Tripper compatible accessory options are subject to availability. Please check with the local dealer for more information.)
The HNTR 350 is the only Royal Enfield in production to feature super manoeuvrable 17” front and rear tyres, and striking cast alloy wheels. The tubeless tyres let you ride uninterrupted for as long as you want, minus the puncture paranoia.
The HNTR 350 retro-inspired rotary switch cubes make powering up and taking off a tactile, hands-on experience designed to wake you up
No matter who is on the seat, the HNTR 350 790mm seat height, wide contours and excellent standover ergonomics make for easy handling and a comfortable riding experience, even while navigating stop-and-go traffic
Built for unpredictable urban environments situations, the anti-lock braking system with 300mm front and 270mm rear discs bring you safely to a stop at even the shortest of distances, keeping you firmly in control
The HNTR 350 comes equipped with a USB port so your devices are online while you are on the prowl.
