About Honda H'Ness CB 350 Motorcycle
The Honda H’Ness CB350 cruiser is available in two variants: DLX and DLX which are priced at Rs 1.85 lakhs and Rs 1.9 lakh (ex-showroom) respectively. The motorcycle looks retro, just like the RE Classic 350, but the Japanese brand has loaded the bike with lots of modern features such as an all-LED lighting system, Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC), assist and slipper clutch, hazard lamp, USB charging port, and a semi-digital instrument cluster with Honda Smartphone Voice Control System (HSVCS) that allows you to connect your smartphone to the motorcycle through Bluetooth, and access features such as navigation, music, phone calls, and incoming messages, etc.
The Honda CB350 H’Ness is powered by a 348.36cc OHC single-cylinder, a fuel-injected, air-cooled unit that churns out 21PS of maximum power at 5500rpm and 30Nm of peak torque at 3000rpm. The engine is mated to a 5-speed transmission.
As far as the underpinnings are concerned, the CB350 uses a half-duplex cradle frame, suspended on a telescopic front fork and twin rear shock absorbers. On the other hand, the braking duties are handled by the 310mm front and 240mm rear discs with dual-channel ABS as standard.
