Honda H’ness CB350 or the Highness CB350 has been launched very recently to challenge the might of Royal Enfield in the 350cc retro classic segment. A couple of days back, we got a chance to get up close and personal with the bike. The H’ness CB350 is based on a pure retro theme and that said, upfront, you get a rounded headlamp, which as a segment-first feature, gets an all-LED setup. Not only this, but the entire lighting setup is all-LEDs. The use of chrome is quite significant on the bike and one can see it on the fenders, exhaust, rearview mirrors and the handlebar. Overall, the fit and finish look top-notch and the bike certainly feels like a premium product. Now, coming to what powers the bike! At the heart of the Honda H’ness CB350 is a 348cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine good for producing 21 hp of power along with 30 hp of torque.
