Honda CB350RS

Rs. 1.96 - 1.98 Lakh *

Ex-showroom Price (New Delhi)

The Honda CB350RS is the scrambler avatar of the H'ness CB350. The bike aims to provide a more sporty riding experience compared to its retro-modern cousin. Honda has treated the CB350RS with more modern design touches like sleeker turn indicators, a raised exhaust and a sleeker tail lamp. It comes equipped with dual-sport tyres which make it capable of soft-roading. The 348.36cc, single-cylinder engine that comes in the H'ness CB350 can also be seen powering the CB350RS. It produces the same 20.7 hp of peak power and 30 Nm of peak torque. Transmission duties are taken up by a 5-speed gearbox. It also gets Honda Selectable Traction Control (HSTC) which is basically a traction control system. The rear tyre has a wider profile for better stability. The CB350RS, however, loses out on a few features like voice commands and a USB charger. The bike is available in monotone and dual-tone colour options. Starting at a price of Rs 1.96 lakh (ex-showroom) the CB350RS commands a small premium over the H'ness CB350.

  • Honda CB350RS Design and Build

    Honda CB350RS

    The Honda CB350RS gets a scrambler-inspired design with an emphasis on making the bike look sporty. It is mostly covered in black and has red or yellow highlights, depending on the colour option you choose. Use of chrome has been kept to a minimum when compared to H'ness CB350. The RS badging, rear-view mirrors and the exhaust shield are the only elements to get treated with chrome. The bike gets a round LED headlamp upfront and sleek LED turn indicators on the side. The tail lamp has been placed just under the seat.

  • Honda CB350RS Riding Ergonomics

    Honda CB350RS

    Honda CB350RS offers a sportier riding position compared to the H'ness CB350. The handlebar of the CB350RS has been raised by 10mm and sits 41mm away from the rider. Even the footpegs have been rear set by 112mm and are also positioned 12mm higher. Despite this, one does not feel too much discomfort even when going on long hauls. The seat height remains the same at 800mm and the seat itself becomes narrower towards the end. It gets a new tuck and roll design which offers a slightly better level of comfort.

  • Honda CB350RS Engine

    Honda CB350RS

    The CB350RS shares its 348cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine with the H’ness CB350. It makes identical power and torque outputs at 21hp and 30Nm, respectively. All that torque is delivered under 3,000 rpm as a result of which, the RS feels quick on its feet and has a punchy low and mid-range. The engine feels the most lively between speeds of 40kmph to 70kmph and this is the spot in which you will actually love playing with the throttle. The engine is very smooth and can cruise at triple digits without any fuss.

  • Honda CB350RS Transmission

    Honda CB350RS

    The 350cc engine in the CB350RS comes mated to a 5-speed gearbox with a slip and assist clutch. The gear shifts are smooth and the presence of the slip and assist clutch makes the clutch action light and allows you to downshift without needing to use the clutch. Unlike the H'ness CB30, this bike gets a toe shifter but the shifting pattern remains the same.

  • Honda CB350RS Braking and Safety

    Braking duties on the CB350RS are taken up by a 310mm disc brake upfront along with a 240mm disc at the rear. 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 lock. The rear brake lever looks like one you would find on adventure bikes. Other safety bits on the CB350 include all-LED headlight, Honda's Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) tech and hazard lamps.

  • Honda CB350RS Mileage

    The CB350 comes with a 15-litre fuel tank and you can return a fuel efficiency figure of about 35kmpl when riding normally. This means that you can ride around in the city without having to worry about refuelling too much. Take it on highways and the bike could give you a range of 500-550km on a full tank. So, you can go on long journeys and will not have to stop too many times to refuel the bike.
