RE 'Hunter' launch 7th, August 2022

Not sure how many will be interested?

Quote from NZ 'Bike Rider Magazine':

Featuring the same motor as the Meteor and the Classic tuned for a bit more punch, the sharper geometry and 17-inch wheels should make it the perfect tool for cutting through the manic traffic in Bangkok!
It’s certainly a good looker and should be a hit with those riders looking for a small capacity stylish machine.

I suspect the extra grunt will be welcome!  ;)  Because at 181kg or 400lbs, it is 100lbs over-weight!  :-[ :-[ :-[ :-[ :(  Pass!

And I am getting 82mpg from the Duke 450 cruising between 50 and 65mph, "36.2 km/l = 85.15 mpg" quoted for the Hunter 350.

And finally, here is a link to the Facebook hashtag page for the Hunter 350, with lots more images etc.

Good health, Bill

That looks quite nice, I rode the Meteor and Classic 350`s the other day, both nice bikes but a bit slow, as you say the extra weight loss may make it  an option for some,  if they ever come across here, but the way the 350`s are selling now they may decide to wait until stock used up !!!   My local dealer is getting some of the 650`s `mapped`  (whatever that is !! ) and increasing performance doing a similar thing to the 350 would be good..

Plug a laptop into the ECU controlling the ignition and fuel delivery and change the manufacturers parameters, so as to produce more BHP, at different RPM, for less MPG!  ;)

If I have it wrong, my apologies!  :-[

Is the Holywood Service Station, your nearest dealer?

Good health, Bill

My localish dealer sells whatever he can get hold of. Straight out of the door with both Meteor and Classic.

They seem remarkably popular.
Note to Self: Shiney side goes UP.
