Honda Hness CB350 gets power from a 348cc, air-cooled, single-cylinder engine mated to a five-speed transmission system.
The fuel-injected engine is good for generating respective power and torque outputs of 21 hp and 30 Nm.
The engine feels quiet, smooth and the exhaust note is undoubtedly one of the biggest highlights of the motorcycle.
The exhaust note gets a rawness, and with the Royal Enfields going silent with the BS6 emission norms, the sound of the Hness CB350 will undoubtedly cherish the auto audiophiles.
Don’t let the old school look deceive you; the Hness CB350 packs many modern bits and bobs. All lighting systems are LEDs; Honda has been using this advanced lighting tech on almost all of its two-wheelers for quite some time now.
There are also semi-digital information clusters. The digital bezel is relatively small, but it contains information such as two trip meters, an odometer, gear position indicator, fuel gauge, range indicator, average and actual fuel economy indicators, and a clock.
One glance at the meter gives you information about your motorcycle battery voltage.
It features live fuel efficiency.
The gear position indicator provides information about the gear you are driving, significantly improving choosing the right gear on long trips.
It shows the distance you can drive with the fuel remaining in the tank.
The Hness CB350 exhaust system features a large 45mm tailpipe to optimise balance with muffler power for a bright sound with low noise levels. A harsh sound comes out of the exhaust pipe by adopting a single-chamber structure in the expansion room.
As a result, the Hness CB350 emits a crisp beat that results in a rich, heavy exhaust. In addition, the double-layer structure prevents thermal discolouration of the exhaust pipe, maintaining the overall appearance of the motorcycle.
The Honda H`ness CB350 is based on a traditional classic design but is reasonably modern. The front has all-around LED headlights, and the front and rear fenders are all chrome plated to give the bike a luxurious feel.
The CB350 comes in various colour options that add elegance to the overall aesthetic, and the brown seats match the overall design. At the rear are wide taillights reminiscent of the Bullet.
The Hness CB350 follows in the same footsteps as the CB1100 EX and CB750, compact roadsters for India with the same CB silhouette.
The Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 is a hallmark of an early 1970’s design to draw parallels. The large, round tank is very similar to the CB1100. It also has a bold Honda logo in the same font from last year.
Round headlamps, turn signals, and tail lamps enhance the retro look. For added visual pleasure, some bike colours have brown leather seat covers.
There are six colours, and for the DLX, three solid colours (Precious Red Metallic, Pearl Night Star Black and Matte Marshall-Green Metallic). And three two-tone options (Pearl Night Star Black with Spear Silver, Virtuous White with Athletic Blue Metallic and Matt Steel Black Metallic and Matt Massive Gray Metallic ) are available for the DLX Pro.
Honda CB350 is available in the following different colours:
- Precious Red Metallic

The seat height of the Honda H`ness CB350 is 800mm, so even 5’5” drivers can ride it without any problems.
The bike has a comfortable position and sits perfectly upright, thanks to its relatively wide handlebars and moderately set footpegs. The cushioning of the seat is also adequate, so there is no need to worry about long-distance driving. Also, as you would expect from a Honda, the overall look and finish are top-notch!
The Honda H`ness CB350 comes with a 5-speed transmission. The gearbox slides and assists the clutch to minimise the effects of engine braking during rough and aggressive downshifts.
Gearboxes have a typical gear shift pattern: one down and four upshifts.
