Royal Enfield is working on the expansion of its model lineup in India. Based on various platforms, these models are aimed at various segments of consumers. As part of this plan, the brand recently launched the Shotgun 650 in the Indian market and is now working on various new products. This includes the Hunter 450 which is currently under the testing phase and has been recently spotted on public roads in India.
The Royal Enfield Hunter 450's test mule spotted on the Indian roads seems to have a very similar fuel tank to the outgoing version of the bike. What brings it even closer to the Hunter 350's design is the long single-piece seat. However, it also has very apparent similarities to the Himalayan 450. For instance, the motorcycle has a similar-looking tail section, LED indicators, and a headlamp. Furthermore, the design of the exhaust has the same shape and an upswept design that we saw on the Himalayan 450.
Taking a closer look the motorcycle has a telescopic front suspension which is reminiscent of Hunter 350. However, at the rear end, it has a mono-shock. The motorcycle is also equipped with disc brakes for both the front and rear end. It holds the ground with normal road-going tires which are different from the ones used on Himalayan 450.
The Royal Enfield Hunter 450's test mule is powered by the same Sherpa 450 unit used in the Himalayan 450. This liquid-cooled engine is capable of producing 39 bhp of power and 40 Nm of peak torque. It is paired with a 6-speed transmission with a slip-and-assist clutch. When combined with the relatively smaller dimensions of the Hunter 450 it is expected to make the motorcycle capable of going fast and increase its agility.
Along with the Hunter 450, the spy shots show another bike currently in its testing phase. Based on the looks of it, this seems to be a 650 cc version of the Hunter. However, we are not sure about the details of the motorcycle.
