Honda H’ness CB350: 5 Things To Know
"The Honda H'ness CB350 is the newest model to enter the Nepalese market"
The Honda H'ness CB350 is the newest model to enter the Nepalese market.
The retro-inspired H'ness CB350 competes with Royal Enfield and Jawa motorbikes. Despite the fact that the H'ness CB350 is available in two varieties (DLX and DLX Pro) in the Indian market, the business has decided to bring in only the first type for the time being. Here are five things to remember about the H'ness CB350.
The H'ness CB350 has the appearance of a 1970s race bike with cafe racer style.
The silhouette is similar to that of the CB750 and others. It has a neo-classical LED headlight surrounded by retro-styled turn signals on either side, a curvaceous 15-litre fuel tank, a single-piece handlebar for an upright riding position, a contoured single-seat for long saddle hours, alloy wheels, and plenty of chrome on the fenders, exhaust, mirrors, and engine.
Precious Red Metallic, Matte Marshal Green Metallic, and Pearl Night Star Black will be the single-tone colors available for the DLX model. The dual-tone colors are available only on the DLX Pro model.
The Honda H'ness CB350 is powered by a new 348.3cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled, fuel-injected engine that is BS6 compliant. This engine produces 20.8 BHP at 5500 RPM and 30 Nm of peak torque at 3000 RPM. This long-stroke engine is paired with a 5-speed manual transmission. Balancer shafts are included with the engine to eliminate primary and secondary vibrations. The Honda H'ness has a similar thumpy exhaust noise as the RE Classic 350, thanks to a single-chamber arrangement in the expansion chamber and a huge 45mm tailpipe.
The bike is built on a half-duplex steel frame (a brand-new platform especially for the Indian market) and features telescopic forks at the front and a mono-shock at the rear for comfortable handling. Disc brakes (310mm disc in front and 240mm disc in back) with dual-channel ABS offer braking power. The alloy wheels are fitted with MRF tyres measuring 100/90-19 in the front and 130/70-18 in the rear.
The H'ness CB 350 has dimensions of 2,163mm long, 800mm broad, and 1,107mm height. The wheelbase is 1,441mm, and the ground clearance is 166mm, the best in class. The motorcycle is also relatively light, weighing 181 kg (kerb).
When compared to its competitors, the Honda H'ness CB350 has a plethora of features. A semi-digital info cluster with Bluetooth connectivity for call/music and navigation, as well as a semi-digital info cluster that displays a gear position indicator, Bluetooth indicator, fuel gauge, two trip meters, and other tell-tale diagnostics such as battery health monitor, Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) that aids in maintaining rear-wheel traction, dual-channel ABS, and a side stand in.
The DLX variant, on the other hand, includes HSTC, full LED headlamps and taillamps, an assist and slipper clutch, a multi-functional instrument cluster, and an engine start/stop switch, among other things. It lacks the Honda Smartphone Voice Control system (HSVCS) found on the DLX Pro model.
Only the DLX edition of the Honda H'ness CB350 is now available in the Nepalese market. In Nepal, the H'ness CB350 DLX is priced at Rs 7.50 Lakh. For a short time, it is available for an introductory price of Rs 6.99 Lakh. Syakar Finance also offers simple financing options.
