Unveiled in September this year, the CB350 takes on the Royal Enfield Classic 350
- Only bike in its class to feature traction control and Bluetooth connectivity
- Prices start from Rs 1.85 lakh.
- Most affordable motorcycle under BigWing brand.
Honda unveiled the H'ness CB350 last month for Indian and overseas markets and now the brand has started delivering the retro roadster to customers across the country. This is the company's third BS6-compliant motorcycle and its most affordable one under its premium brand, BigWing India. The CB350 is available in DLX and DLX Pro variants priced at Rs 1.85 lakh and Rs 1.90 lakh (ex-showroom) respectively.
The CB350 is powered by a 348.36cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine producing 21PS and 30Nm mated to a 5-speed gearbox with a slip and assist clutch. The bike gets some first-in-class features like LED illumination, traction control, and Bluetooth connectivity for the DLX Pro model. It comes with a 6-year warranty package, which includes 3-year standard warranty and 3-year optional extended warranty.
With the CB350, Honda has the massive market of the Royal Enfield Classic 350 in its crosshairs. With all the features on offer and an edge of 1.64PS and 2Nm over the Classic, the Honda certainly presents a strong case. The bike also goes up against the likes of Benelli Imperiale 400 and Jawa.
