Honda CB350 Launched: What you need to know!
Honda recently introduced its latest addition to the 350cc lineup, aiming to compete with the Royal Enfield Classic 350. Named the CB350, this bike closely resembles the Royal Enfield model but shares the engine and chassis with Honda’s existing H’ness CB350 and CB350RS.
The CB350 is equipped with a 348cc, air-cooled single-cylinder engine delivering 21hp and 29Nm, consistent with the power output of other Honda CB350 models. It features Honda’s Smartphone Voice Control system (HSVCS), LED lighting, an assist & slipper clutch, and traction control.
Visually, the CB350 bears a striking resemblance to the Classic 350, from the shrouded telescopic fork to the peashooter-style exhaust and fender design. The extent of similarity raises concerns about originality, as the CB350 appears to heavily imitate its rival rather than showcasing Honda’s distinct design identity.
Pricing for the CB350 includes a base DLX variant at Rs 2 lakh and a DLX Pro version at Rs 2.18 lakh. The DLX Pro is the exclusive variant featuring the HSVCS and traction control.
