The Japanese motorcycle maker has issued a software update for its 350cc modern classic motorcycles – the Honda H'ness CB350 and the Honda CB350 RS – to help them perform better at high altitudes.
Honda two-wheelers India has issued an ECU update for the H'ness CB350 and CB350 RS, which includes changes to the fuel mapping of the motorcycles for improved performance at altitudes higher than 4,000 meters. The ECU update will help the motorcycles perform to their optimum in conditions the air is less dense.
Honda India strongly recommends the ECU update to its Honda H'ness CB350 and CB350 RS customers. The ECU update can be had at any authorised Honda two-wheeler service station for free of charge and should not take more than 15 minutes.
The new units of the Honda H'ness CB350 and the CB350 RS rolling out off the production line will already have the updated ECU software, and new owners will not have to update their respective motorcycles.
Bear in mind that the software update is merely a method to help the engine deliver its optimum output under difficult situations and will not increase the power and torque figures of the CB350 RS and the H’ness CB350.
The power output of both motorcycles will remain unchanged, i.e. 20.8bhp and 30Nm from the 349cc single-cylinder air-cooled engine. Other mechanicals and cycle parts will also remain unchanged.
The Honda H’ness 350 carries a starting price of Rs 1.95 lakh (ex-showroom), and the CB350 RS's prices start at Rs 1.99 lakh (ex-showroom).
