Better capabilities

The Hunter Metro Variant would have better capabilities, it is Retro Variant that would appeal to folks having limited budget. Assuming the Hunter Retro is launched at around Rs. 1.5 lakh, it would deal in the segment. It is quite possible; Royal Enfield would be focussed on reducing the cost of the bike. For example, the plastic and fibre parts would have been used instead of metal. This will also help reduce weight of the bike, this would help boost power to weight ratio.

Another way of reducing the cost of the bike is making the Tripper navigation an optional feature. The strategy has already been deployed for Meteor as well as Himalayan. It has also been revealed that Hunter would be offered in 8 color options. Three would be customizable.
