This is a movie from the 1980s. I remember only fragments of it.

In a post-apocalyptic deserted Earth (Mad Max-like), a girl meets a scavenger (the good guy) called Hunter. The girl has freckles and a snub nose, and is pretty but not particularly a beauty. I think I remember Hunter rides a motorbike.

Later, the girl is captured by the villain. In a scene, he forces her to dance a slow together.

At the end of the movie, there is the final fight between Hunter and the villain; the girl shouts "Kill him, Hunter!". The good guy wins and the two of them leave leaves riding in the sunset.

This is most definitely a US movie, and IIRC there is no famous actor starring in it. All these actors are white. The girl is in her mid-20s, and Hunter and the villain are perhaps in their 30s.

Battletruck (1982) matches a few points. It's a post-apocalyptic setting and the main character is called Hunter who rides a motorbike.

Synopsis from Wikipedia

Set in the aftermath of a devastating series of wars referred to as the Oil Wars, the plot is a futuristic tale of a community fighting against a local warlord in the lawless rural countrywide. A co-production between New Zealand and the United Kingdom, it was filmed on location in New Zealand and starring a number of local actors, and was part of a wave of similarly-themed films made in the wake of the success of the Mad Max series.

Mention of Hunter riding a motorbike:

Corlie is saved from a squad of men sent to return her to the camp by Hunter, an ex-soldier armed with a high-tech motorbike

There's mention of riding off into the sunset, but it's just Hunter, no companion:

Hunter and Corlie end up back at Clearwater, where Corlie apparently settles for good as part of the community. Ever the loner, Hunter rides off into the sunset on a horse, promising Corlie that he will be back "sometime".

    Presumably Hunter’s bike gets destroyed in the course of the film, hence riding off on horseback? Jun 12, 2021 at 14:36
