Honda offers the same motorcycle and bike parts on both the CB350 H’Ness and CB350RS, but the styling and riding ergonomics are slightly different

Launch of the Honda CB350 range – H’Ness followed by RS, opening doors of the modern classic motorcycle segment for the Japanese brand in India. The space largely dominated by Royal Enfield soon saw a worthy rival for bikes like the Bullet 350 and Classic 350.

The CB350 range regularly brings in a decent monthly volume, despite limited availability. It should be noted that both H’Ness and RS are sold through Honda’s premium dealer chain called BigWing, which is not available in every corner of the country. Meanwhile, Honda has recently made some updates to the CB350 range.

Honda CB350 – New Color Options

Honda has each launched a new color option on H’Ness and RS. While these new paint schemes have not been listed on Honda’s official BigWing website for India, they have appeared on units shipped to dealers. For example, H’Ness is now available in a new matte gray color scheme according to the latest espionage images.

This new color option joins existing single-tone shades such as Pearl Night-Black Metallic, Precious Red Metallic and Matt Marshal Green Metallic. In addition to these, H’Ness is also offered in two-tone paint options such as Matte Steel Black Metallic with Matte Massive Gray Metallic, Blue Metallic with Virtuous White and Night Star Black with Silver Metallic.

The bike comes to the CB350RS and is offered in a new monotone shade of blue. It joins the already existing color palette of color options, including black with Pearl Sports Yellow and Radiant Red Metallic color options. Other than additional color schemes, no other changes to any of the motorcycles have been reported.

CB3050 Engine Specifications:

Both H’Ness and RS share the same mechanics and underpinnings. They are powered by the same 348.3cc, single-cylinder, fuel-injected air-cooled engine that delivers 20.8hp at 5500rpm and maximum torque of 30Nm at 3000rpm. This engine is coupled to a 5-speed gearbox. Both bikes have telescopic forks in the front and dual shock absorbers in the rear.

Honda recently announced that the CB350 range will now be available for sale in select Canteen Store Department (CSD) stores under the Department of Defense. The bikes will cost Rs 26,000 less than their corresponding regular prices on the market. CSD beneficiaries can purchase these Honda motorcycles by registering on the official CSD website.

Honda Scramblers

In other developments, it was recently reported that Honda will develop two new entry-level scrambler motorcycles based on Rebel 250 and Rebel 500. It is not yet confirmed whether these bikes will be launched in India. When launched, these bikes will be placed on either end of the upcoming Royal Enfield Hunter 350.
