Reports in the past have suggested that the brand will christen the new roadster motorcycle ‘Hunter 350’. The motorcycle has been spied multiple times in the Indian market, especially in close proximity to the Chennai-based brand’s production plant. The motorcycle has been spied again in Tamil Nadu, however, this time the Hunter 350 appears to be production-ready. Though the Royal Enfield test mule is still wearing camouflage covers, it appears that the motorcycle has been installed with accessories that are likely to be available when the motorcycle is launched.
