Honda has launched H’ness CB350 RS in India at Rs1.96 lakh (ex-showroom). It is the scrambler version of CB350 cruiser that was launched last year and the two bikes use the same 350 cc engine. This new bike will be retailed via the company’s BigWing dealerships and is currently available for bookings.
Honda had launched H’ness CB350 retro cruiser bike in India last year and the motorcycle has racked up over 10,000 orders. Seeing the popularity of this bike, the Japanese motorcycle maker has decided to add another motorcycle to its lineup that shares the underpinnings with H’ness CB350.
This bike christened H’ness CB350 RS, has been launched in India at Rs 1.96 lakh (ex-showroom). It is a scrambler motorcycle which shares its frame with the H’ness CB350 but is only Rs 3,500 costlier than the CB350 DLX Pro. According to Honda, the CB350 RS is a unique proposition in the segment in terms of design and is made for touring purposes.
Honda H’ness CB350 RS’ design isn’t very different from that of the CB350 cruiser but the RS has a couple of styling tweaks, especially at the rear which sets it apart from its sibling. It sports a round headlamp, bellows for front forks, eye-shaped LED winkers, and a dual-tone fuel tank as compared to the H’ness CB350.
The bike also gets a sleek LED tail light, under-seat LED blinkers, skid plate, and a tuck and roll saddle with stitching. And given that it’s a scrambler, it has forward riding position as compared to the CB350 cruiser and is shod with wide pattern tyres.
Just like its sibling, even the CB350 RS also comes equipped with a semi-digital instrument panel that offers information like speed, tachometer, odometer, trip meter, gear-position indicator, fuel gauge, average fuel efficiency, etc. Other features on the CB350 RS include hazard switch and Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) system that helps in maintaining rear-wheel traction.
