The H’ness CB350 blends Honda’s originality with a timeless sense of design and substantial character. The style resonates with the new age motorcyclists’ sense of self-expression and uniqueness. On the other hand, CB350RS is the perfect example of amalgamation between contemporary style and superior stance.

 

ADVANCED

At the heart of CB350 is a big powerful 350cc, air cooled 4 stroke OHC single-cylinder OBD2B compliant engine equipped with PGM-FI technology. It delivers a max torque of 30 Nm@3000 rpm.

Main shaft coaxial balancer placed on the cylinder eliminates both primary & secondary vibrations, making it a perfect companion for longer rides, offering a highly attractive engine feel that transmits throbs from the long-stroke engine.

CB350 exhaust system carries a large tailpipe of 45mm to optimize balance for producing a bold low-pitched sound. A single one-chamber structure in the expansion chamber helps deliver a rich thumping exhaust note when you wind on the throttle.

The engine uses offset cylinder position that reduces the sliding friction and asymmetrical connecting rod ensures minimum energy loss while combustion. It uses closed crankcase with a wall between crankcase and transmission reducing energy loss due to internal friction.

The air-cooling system maintains highly dense air intake to improve efficiency and ensures favorable combustion in all rpm ranges by keeping the engine temperature within ideal range. The piston cooling jet improves engines thermal efficiency, leading to an improved fuel efficiency.

Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) helps in maintaining rear wheel traction by detecting difference between front and rear wheel speeds, calculating the slip ratio and further controlling engine torque via the fuel injection. HSTC can be turned ON/OFF using a switch on the left side of meter. A ‘T’ indicator in the digital display flickers when the system is engaging.

Honda Smartphone Voice Control system (HSVCS) allows riders to remain in touch with the world while enjoying the exciting riding experience. To deepen the connect with ride, both H’ness CB350 & NEWCB350RS (DLX Pro variants) now come equipped with the world’s first-ever Honda Smartphone Voice Control system (HSVCS) developed in-house. Rider can connect his smartphone with the motorcycle via Bluetooth through HSVCS application. Once connected, rider can operate the system with controls on the left side of the handlebar to use distinct features such as phone calls, navigation, music playback and incoming messages. To facilitate complete concentration on riding, the information accessed will be communicated from the helmet headset speaker.

Assist and Slipper Clutch makes the gear shifts smoother while reducing clutch lever operation load ensuring less fatigue and more comfort during rides that involve frequent shifting.

The Advanced Digital-Analogue Meter integrates details like torque control, ABS, Side stand indicator with engine inhibitor, gear position indicator and battery voltage. The ride experience is further enriched with fuel efficiency details displayed in three modes –real time mileage, average mileage, and distance to empty.

The 2023 CB350s now come with NEW Emergency Stop Signal (ESS) that quickly communicates sudden breaking to the vehicles behind. When the ABS modulator detects sudden breaking, the turn signals flash at high speed to warn the vehicles behind of quick deceleration. Full LED Setup allows rider to banish the darkness and light up the darkest of paths also adding a vibe to the style quotient.

 

COMFORT & CONVENIENCE

Dual channel ABS prevents wheels from locking when brakes are applied in emergency or when operated on slippery roads ensuring a greater sense of confidence. Anchoring the motorcycle is a large 310mm disc brake on front and 240mm rear disc providing adequate braking performance in any situation.

The half – duplex cradle frame in steel pipe is used for a soft steering feel. Load allocated to the front is optimized by mounting the engine at low position to lower the center of gravity, which affects the overall riding feel and maneuverability of the motorcycle.

Large section front suspension not only enhances the massive imposing image but also provides immense comfort on rough roads. Pressurized nitrogen charged rear suspension provides highly responsive rear damping performance.

Engine Start/Stop Switc gives the convenience of turning-off the engine on brief stops with flick of a switch. Ensuring safety of riders in low visibility conditions is the Hazard Switch feature.

The ‘tuck and roll’ design (CB350RS) of the seat gives superior cushioning providing relaxed ride for daily commuting as well as during leisure rides.

The 2023 H’ness CB350 now comes with NEW Split Seat as standard.It offers superior cushioning which provides for an immensely comfortable ride. It also comes with a dedicated rear grip which is slanted towards the back for a comfortable pillion ride.

Go on a smarter ride with the Eco Indicator that uses sensors to measure the riding speed and injected fuel volume to determine the economical riding. A 15-litre fuel tank and top-class mileage ensure an unstoppable longer ride.
