Royal Enfield is currently working on a few new models, which will be introduced soon. The models are likely to be known as Meteor, Hunter and Sherpa. New spy shots have surfaced online that reveals a new model. The latest images are assumed to be the new Hunter, codenamed J1D. The company has started testing the new model, spotted at Chennai-Trichy road in Tamil Nadu.
The spied bike was heavily covered. Although, we somewhat get a glimpse of the upcoming model. Royal Enfiled is actively testing its new models in the Indian roads. We expect the company to bring a brand new model soon for its fans in the country. The latest images show the bike from the side and back. As these are not production-ready models, the company can still make some changes until the launch.
The bike gets the traditional look of the company in terms of chassis. Along with Hunter, the two-wheeler manufacturer is also working on a new Meteor 350, which will hit the Indian market after the ongoing COVID-19 lockdown. These models are already spotted while on the test. These new RE models are expected to be entry-level models that will focus on attracting customers searching for affordable RE range.
According to the spied images, the Hunter gets upright seating position, similar to Interceptor 650. The seats look comfortable for long rides along with heightened handlebar and mid footpegs. It is integrated with a digital single-pod instrument console that is likely to support Bluetooth connectivity. The features will be first-in-class to the bike maker range. It is integrated with a larger rounded chrome headlight.
Similar to Meteor, it is expected to be powered by a 349 cc single-cylinder motor Over Head Cam (OHC) engine. In terms of suspension, the bike will get telescopic forks at the front and twin shocks at the rear. The braking duties are handled by disc brakes at both the sides along with dual-channel ABS.
Further, the bike will sit on newly designed 5-spoke alloy wheels and exhaust. The fans are eagerly waiting for the launch of Meteor 350, which will be somewhat similar to Thunderbird 350. The new Hunter is likely to hit the Indian market in 2021. Expect the new bike to price between Rs. 1.5-1.8 lakh (Ex-Showroom).
