Honda plans to further increase sales by making more Big Wing dealerships operational by March
Honda is set to unveil its scrambler offering in India, and in the meantime, the Japanese giant has surpassed 10,000 sales units of the H’ness CB350. The CB350’s deliveries commenced on October 21, 2020, and the 10,000th motorcycle rolled out of Honda’s Gurgaon facility on February 10, 2021.
This is a big milestone for the cruiser, considering the motorcycle is available only via 18 Honda Big Wing dealerships throughout India. The company achieved this number earlier, had the H’ness been available across usual dealerships.

For reference, the CB350’s immediate rival, the Royal Enfield Classic 350, sells over 30,000 units a month, thanks to its extensive dealership network.
However, Honda plans to increase the number of dealerships to at least 50 by March 2021. If it does manage to do that, the retro-roadster will likely sell more, we think. The additional dealerships could also propel sales of the Honda CB350 cafe racer, which is set to make its India debut on February 16.
The Honda H’ness CB350 boasts segment-first features like traction control, slipper clutch, and full LED lighting. The 349cc, single-cylinder motor makes 21PS and 30Nm.
