Honda Motorcycles India has increased the prices for its premium retro-modern cruiser, the H’ness CB 350. The Honda H’ness CB 350 which was introduced in India in September last year is now offered with a new starting price of Rs 1,86,500, ex-showroom (Delhi).
The Honda H’ness CB 350 is offered in two variants: DLX and DLX Pro. The base variant receives a price hike of Rs 1,500 while prices of the top-spec ‘DLX Pro’ has been increased to Rs 1,92,500; translating to a Rs 2,500 hike. Again prices are ex-showroom (Delhi).
This is the first-ever price hike on the Honda H’ness CB 350, which has been received well in the Indian market. The CB 350 is the brand’s most affordable premium motorcycle offering and rivals the likes of the Royal Enfield Meteor 350 and the Benelli Imperiale 400.
Apart from the increase in prices, no other changes have been made on the motorcycle. The Honda H’ness CB 350 is powered by the brand’s all-new 349cc single-cylinder air-cooled fuel-injected engine. It produces 21bhp and 30Nm of peak torque, paired with a five-speed gearbox.
The Honda H’ness CB 350 comes with standard telescopic fork at the front and dual shock absorbers at the rear. Braking is handled by a 310mm disc at the front and a 240mm disc at the rear, supported by dual-channel ABS.
Being a premium offering, the Honda H’ness CB 350 comes packed with a host of features and equipment. Some of these include LED headlamps, LED tail lights, Honda’s variable torque control (HVTC), bluetooth connected technology with message and call alerts, along with navigation.
The motorcycle has been completely developed by Honda Motorcycle & Scooters India (HMSI). Apart from India, the H‘ness CB 350 will be exported to international markets as well. The bike is sold exclusively under the brand’s premium Big Wing dealerships across India.
