The Hunter 350 roadster is offered in Retro, Metro and Metro Rebel variants and with a kerb weight of just 177 kg for the base variant, it has become the lightest RE in the lineup.

It also features 17-inch wire-spoked wheels at the front and the rear evoking a vintage vibe while the instrument cluster is old-Classic like. Other highlights are a regular tubular grab rail and single-piece seat, blacked-out side-mounted exhaust system, switchgear taken from the old Classic, oval-shaped halogen turn indicators and circular halogen tail lamp, front disc brake and rear drum brake assisted by a single-channel ABS system.
