- The all-new motorcycle comes with a price tag of ₹1.85 lakh onwards.

Honda H’Ness CB350 looks like an old-school cruiser bike that will be available with two variants – DLX and DLX Pro. However, the DLX variant will cost ₹1.85 Lakhs while the DLX Pro variant will cost somewhere around ₹1.90 Lakhs.
With the retro looks, the all-new Honda H’Ness CB350 gets a full LED headlamp, semi-digital instrument cluster, Bluetooth connectivity, dual-channel ABS and Traction Control. Meanwhile, built on a double-cradle frame the retro-looking bike also gets the disc brakes both at the front as well as rear. The disc brake at the front remains to be a 310mm unit. Meanwhile, at the rear, the bike comes with a 240mm disc brake.
The engine that powers the Honda H’Ness CB350 is a 348.36cc, air-cooled, single-cylinder engine. It produces a maximum output of 20.8BHP and 30Nm of torque. Meanwhile, the engine also comes mated to a 5-speed gearbox with a slipper clutch.
