One quick glance of the motorcycle is enough to realise it’s been designed to target the Royal Enfield Bullet 350 buyers. With a true-blue retro charm, the bike gets proper full-length metal fenders at both ends, and a plain-jane colour scheme without any fancy stickering. Other notable changes compared to the Honda H’ness CB350 include a chromed-out pea-shooter exhaust, split seats with more premium seat covers, tank grips, and metal covers for the fork. Honda claims the exhaust is designed to offer a low-pitched thump, something Royal Enfield bike lovers will also appreciate. 

It uses the same 349cc counterbalanced air-cooled engine, and it churns out 21.07PS at 5500rpm and 29.4Nm at 3000rpm, working in conjunction with a 5-speed gearbox with a slip-and-assist clutch. Other notable features include a semi-digital instrument cluster with smartphone connectivity and voice assistance, all-LED lighting, and dual-channel ABS as standard.


Suspension bits include a telescopic fork and twin preload-adjustable rear shock absorbers. It uses the same 310mm front and 240mm rear disc as the H’ness. Interestingly, while the H’ness CB350 uses a 19-inch front and an 18-inch rear wheel, this one comes with 18-inch units at both ends. The front tyre is a 100-section unit whereas the rear gets 130-section rubber, both MRF Nylogrip Zappers. While the alloy wheels can handle punctures better than spoke wheels, the latter could have considerably enhanced the retro appeal of the motorcycle. Honda cshould’ve offered spoke wheels at least on the base variant.

Bookings are open now, and Honda says the deliveries “will begin soon.” It’s important to note that the Honda CB350 will be sold only through Honda Big Wing dealerships, just like the other two Honda 350cc bikes. The Japanese bikemaker also offers a three-year standard warranty with the option to extend it to 7 more years. That should ensure proper peace of mind. Apart from different colour schemes, the Pro variant also gets a chromed-out headlight nacelle.

Summing up, while the Honda CB350 seems like a very superficial attempt to attract classic bike enthusiasts, it does come at a cheaper price than the H’ness. However, that still isn’t enough, as the OG retro bike from Royal Enfield, the Bullet 350, is massively more affordable, starting from Rs 1,73,562. So if you’re looking for a true-blue classic, then you might as well go for the popular Royal Enfield Classic 350, which starts from Rs 2,02,094 for the Halcyon range, which is the most affordable one with dual-channel ABS. 

All prices are ex-showroom Delhi.
