After sharing numerous teasers claiming the arrival of ‘Your Highness’, Honda has finally taken the wraps off their all-new motorcycle today. Christened CB350 H’ness, Honda hopes to capitalise on the CB legacy to establish the new product that will go against the likes of the Royal Enfield Classic 350, Jawa, Jawa 42, and the Benelli Imperiale 400. Honda has priced the CB350 H’ness at Rs 1.90 lakh. Honda will be selling the CB350 via the Big Wing dealerships, and deliveries are likely to start around the upcoming festive season.
On the design front, the CB350 H’Ness has been inspired from the CBs of the yore. It gets a circular LED headlight, telescopic front forks and a tall handlebar for an upright riding posture. The exhaust has been finished in chrome. Honda claims that a lot of effort has been put into the exhaust ‘thump’ and it was part of the brief right from the get go. The motorcycle will have disc brakes at both ends with a dual channel ABS. Other features include a semi-digital instrument cluster, Honda Selectable Torque Control, assist and slipper clutch and more. The CB350 also features Bluetooth connectivity that
Powering the CB350 H’Ness will be a 350cc single-cylinder air-cooled motor that pushes out about 20.5bhp and 30Nm. The engine comes paired with a 5-speed transmission. The Honda CB250 sits on a 19-inch wheel at the front and an 18-inch at the back. Braking duties are performed by a 310mm and 240mm disc at the front and the rear respectively. As far as dimensions go, the CB350 has a wheelbase of 1,441mm and a ground clearance of 166mm.
The CB350 H’Ness will be offered in six colour options – three primary and three dual-tone, and will be sold via Honda’s Big Wing dealerships. Deliveries of the bike are expected to commence around the festive season. Honda is also expected to launch three new big bikes in the coming months.
