The India Bike Week’s schedule leaks ahead of the official announcement
We are just a day away from India Bike Week 2021’s (IBW) commencement and Honda’s lineup for the festival has been leaked as IBW’s social media handle shared the two-day event schedule. However, the schedule images have now been removed. Anywho, here are the bikes you’ll see at the Honda booth.
It’ll be the Honda Hness CB350 Anniversary Edition and accompanying it will be the updated, BS6-compliant CB300R. Expect the Hness CB350 Anniversary Edition to have cosmetic tweaks over the standard model, presumably including premium badges, special livery and chrome highlights. Its underpinnings, as well as the 348cc air-cooled motor belting out 21PS and 30Nm should see no alterations though.

As for the CB300R, we can expect the bike to receive minor cosmetic tweaks (read new colour schemes) and a greener, BS6/Euro5 compliant motor. The BS4 compliant CB300R dished out 30.45PS and 27.4Nm. We are yet to see if it changes in the pursuit of cleaner emission but we hope the output figures remain the same.
The Honda Hness CB350 Anniversary Edition should command a premium of a few thousand rupees over the standard bike. Meanwhile, the CB300R BS4 was priced at Rs 2.41 lakh (ex-showroom) and the updated iteration could be priced at around Rs 2.5-2.6 lakh (ex-showroom). More details will be out soon since the wait isn’t too long. So, stay tuned for further updates.
