My wife picks up a used Royal Enfield Hunter 350 as her second bike

She will use the Aerox 155 for the city and the Hunter 350 for highways.

A new addition to the garage: Royal Enfield Hunter 350

If there is one brand that must be getting the folks at Triumph tensed about the future roadmap – it could be Royal Enfield. Both of them claim authentic British heritage, and both are rediscovering how the classic motorcycle should appeal to the modern audience. Well, I’m going to have a taste of both worlds because my wife decided to pick up a Royal Enfield Hunter 350 as the second motorcycle (and the third two-wheeler) for our garage.

Those in our Bangalore biking circles would already know this bike – belonging to BHPian deepfreak15 and just having completed 1 year and 1500kms. Interestingly, even the Tiger Sport was bought 6 months ago, 2288 kms used – so I have been lucky with getting bikes which are just about run-in! Thanks a ton to Deepak for passing this bike on.

This will be the first motorcycle experience for the wife and it’s her own choice as well. After Deepak mentioned about the sale, she went to the showroom and checked how comfortable she was – and absolutely loved what Royal Enfield had done with the Hunter. From a vocal Royal Enfield hater to a convert – it’s turned out to be quite a revelation for her.

A size too small for me, but then – I will continue to use the Tiger Sport 660 as my city and highway machine. Whereas she will use the Aerox 155 for the city and the Hunter 350 for highways.

Deepak was kind enough to do a service before the handover. The below accessories were already added to the bike – sump guard, custom seat, LED indicators, and touring mirrors. I went ahead and added two more today – the engine guard and the visor.

All three two-wheelers in the garage for now
