Honda has introduced its third 350cc model, the CB350, aimed at competing with the Royal Enfield Classic 350. Despite its striking resemblance to the Royal Enfield counterpart, the CB350 shares the same engine and chassis as the H’ness CB350 and CB350RS. Powered by a 348cc air-cooled single-cylinder engine with 21hp and 29Nm output, it mirrors the specifications of other Honda CB350 models. Notable features include the Honda Smartphone Voice Control system (HSVCS), all-LED lighting, assist & slipper clutch, and traction control.
Visually, the CB350 bears a strong resemblance to the Classic 350, with similarities in design elements such as the telescopic fork, peashooter-style exhaust, and fender design. While equipped with impressive features, the extent of emulation of its rival raises concerns about originality in the bike’s aesthetics.
The CB350 is available in two variants: the base DLX model priced at Rs 2 lakh and the DLX Pro version priced at Rs 2.18 lakh, which exclusively includes features like HSVCS and traction control.
