- Focused on enhancing safety and functional quotient
Honda recently widened its portfolio by launching the new CB350 in India. The motorcycle is a visually different iteration of the Hness CB350 while retaining the same engine and cycle parts. Interestingly, Honda is providing the option to enhance its visual, safety, and functional quotient by kitting it up with seven different official accessories.
For the touring enthusiasts, the Japanese bike maker is selling a fairly tall windscreen which should be helpful to mitigate the effect of wind blasts at high speeds. For loading luggage, one can opt for a rear carrier along with a pillion backrest; there’s also a solo carrier which offers more storage space but fitting it requires the removal of the pillion seat. Those concerned about safety can also buy knuckle guards, chrome-finished or blacked-out leg guards, and fog lamps.
As for the key specifications of the motorcycle, the Honda CB350 is powered by a 346.36cc, air-cooled engine that produces 20.78bhp and 30Nm. This unit comes mated to a five-speed gearbox along with an assist and slipper. It rides on a 19-18-inch alloy wheel combination that is suspended by telescopic forks and dual springs. The stopping power comes from a single disc at both ends with dual-channel ABS. The motorcycle weighs 181kg (kerb) and boasts a fuel tank capacity of 15 litres.
