2 New 350cc Royal Enfield Motorcycles Spotted Together: As we reported earlier, Royal Enfield is working on multiple 350cc motorcycles for the Indian market and two of them have been recently spotted testing together ahead of the official launch later this year. One of them is the next-gen model of Classic 350 and the second one is the all-new Hunter 350, which we previously thought is the much-anticipated Roadster 350. As per the details available, RE would be launching the Classic 350 very soon while the Hunter 350 is expected to launch around Diwali this year. Here is the spy video of the upcoming bikes:

As you can see in the video, the instrument console of the next-gen RE Classic 350 also gets the brand’s Bluetooth navigation system known as ‘Tripper Navigation’. It has been placed on the right-hand side of the main semi-digital instrument console. As far as the Hunter 350 is concerned, it gets exactly the same console as we have in the Meteor 350.
Mechanically, the 2021 Royal Enfield Classic 350 and the Hunter 350 will come powered by the Meteor 350’s air-cooled 349cc engine, which is good for a maximum power of 20.2 HP along with a peak torque of 27 Nm. The engine will remain mated to a 5-speed transmission.
In terms of pricing, the new Classic 350 and the Hunter 350 are expected to get an ex-showroom price of around INR 1.80 lakhs. Once launched, both the bikes would be competing with the likes of Jawa Classic 300, Mahindra Mojo 300, Honda Highness CB350, Benelli Imperiale 400, and the Bajaj Dominar 400.
Apart from these two motorcycles, the Chennai-based motorcycle brand is also working on Scrambler 350, Roadster 350, Cruiser 650, Bobber 650, and even 650cc models of the Classic and Meteor, which are expected to launch in India next year and some of them are expected to launch in 2023.
