  • Honda H'ness CB350 Design and Build

    Honda H'ness CB350

    The Honda H'ness CB350 is based on a traditional classic design, however, still manages to look quite modern. Upfront, you get a rounded all-LED headlamp and the front and rear fenders are all chrome finished that lend the bike a premium appeal. The CB350 comes with some rich colour options that add elegance to the overall aesthetics and the brown coloured seat gels well with the overall design. At the rear, you get a wide tail light that might remind you of the one on the Bullet 350.

  • Honda H'ness CB350 Riding Ergonomics

    Honda H'ness CB350

    Honda H'ness CB350 has a seat height of 800mm and hence, riders of even height of 5'5'' can ride it without any difficulties. The bike has a comfortable stance and all thanks to the relatively wide handlebar and moderately set footpegs, you sit quite upright on the motorcycle. The cushioning on the seat also feels quite apt and hence, riding long distances should not be a worry. Moreover, as one would normally expect from Honda, the overall fit and finish is certainly top-notch! 

  • Honda H'ness CB350 Engine

    Honda H'ness CB350

    Honda H'ness CB350 draws power from a 348cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine mated to a five-speed transmission system. The fuel-injected engine is good for producing respective power and torque outputs of 21 hp and 30 Nm. The engine feels quite smooth and the exhaust note is certainly one of the biggest highlights of the motorcycle. The exhaust note gets a rawness and with the Royal Enfields going silent with the BS6 emission norms, the sound of the H'ness CB350 will certainly cherish the auto audiophiles.

  • Honda H'ness CB350 Transmission

    Honda H'ness CB350

    As already mentioned, the Honda H'ness CB350 comes with a five-speed gearbox. The transmission gets a slip and assist clutch that basically minimises the effects of engine braking during sudden and aggressive downshifts. The gearbox has a typical one-down, four-up shifting pattern.

  • Honda H'ness CB350 Braking and Safety

    Honda H'ness CB350 comes to a halt with the help of a 310mm disc brake upfront along with a 240mm disc unit at the rear. A dual-channel ABS (Anti-Lock Braking System) comes as standard with the bike for additional safety and brings the bike to a halt whenever required while preventing any wheel skid. Other safety bits on the CB350 include all-LED headlight, Honda's Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) tech and hazard lamps.

  • Honda H'ness CB350 Mileage

    Honda H'ness CB350 returns a fuel efficiency of close to 38 kmpl. The bike has been fitted with a 15-litre fuel tank and hence, the CB350 offers a real-life range of close to 500 km on a full top-up, which is quite decent if you go long-distance touring. The mileage figure might vary depending on the riding behaviour of an individual.
