Honda Highness CB350 Waiting Period Stretches Up To 2 Months
Honda's newly entrant to mid-range cruiser segment, the HNess CB350 has garnered loads of attention from biking enthusiasts. This had forced a longer waiting period of up to 3 months. However, now Honda has led to cut down the waiting time to quite an extent. But still, some of the major cities have a waiting period as long as 2 months.
Talking about major cities of the country, Hyderabad has the longest waiting period of up to 60 days, while those in national capital & Bengaluru will have to wait for around 15-20 days to get deliver of their preferred trim. Importantly, there is no waiting period time on the DLX Pro variant in Bengaluru, as it is readily available in most cities. On the other hand, the average waiting time in Kolkata, Pune, Mumbai, and Chennai is between 20 to 45 days.
As per the reports, currently, the DLX variant of Honda CB350 is in huge demand, whereas the top-spec DLX Pro trim is available with a more abbreviated waiting time. However, for that one has to spend Rs 5,000 more. This extra premium will not only make you wait for less, but will also give you the benefit of many additional features like dual horn & smartphone compatibility with Honda Smartphone Voice Control system (HSVCS) to connect your smartphone to the motorcycle through Bluetooth, and access features such as navigation, music, phone calls, and incoming messages, etc.
