The two-wheeler segment will witness two big launches in the month of August. While Royal Enfield is ready to introduce its all-new Hunter 350cc motorcycle on 7th August, Honda 2Wheelers will bring in a new BigWing model on 8th August, 2022. Here’s a brief on the soon-to-be-launched new bikes.
Royal Enfield Hunter 350
The Chennai-based two-wheeler maker has already started dispatching the Royal Enfield Hunter 350cc bike across its dealerships. The model will share its platform, features and engines with the RE Meteor 350. Interestingly, it will be the smallest and most affordable Royal Enfield offering in the country. Powering the model will be the 349cc, single-cylinder engine delivering 20bhp.
The Hunter measures 2055mm in length, 800mm in width and 1055mm in height. Design elements such as shorter and smaller swing arm, a single piece seat and differently styled fuel tank will differentiate it from the RE Meteor 350. Since it will be placed below the Meteor, the RE Hunter might miss out on the tripper navigation system. It’s estimated to cost between Rs 1.5 lakh – Rs 1.7 lakh (ex-showroom). More details here…
