Royal Enfield’s newest 350cc single has been snapped while it’s out undergoing some final testing ahead of going into production – and we’ve got our hands on the photos.

Following closely in the footsteps of the recently released Meteor, the Indian-built Hunter will make use of the same 350cc single engine – but feature a slightly sportier retro-style look, more similar to the 650cc enduringly popular Interceptor and Continental GT’s (or even a little baby Bonneville).

We’re expecting the Hunter to share a lot with Meteor – it’ll likely have the same double steel cradle chassis, telescopic forks, twin rear shocks (with preload adjustment), LED lights, disc brakes, twin channel Bosch ABS, alloy wheels, 15 litre tank, USB power socket, analogue/LCD instrument panel and smartphone navigation too. It’ll also get the same single-cylinder 349cc air-cooled oil engine as the Meteor – which kicks out 20.2hp at 6100rpm and 27 Nm of torque at 4000 rpm.

There will be some differences though, including (what looks like) a smaller 18” front tyre, a sportier exhaust, a different seat and some tweaked footpegs – in addition to some changes to the styling. There’s no official news yet about the specific information, or when we’re going to see the final, finished version of the bike – but we’re unlikely to have to wait too much longer.
