Earlier Honda had released a teaser of their new bike. Which was rumoured to be a competition to Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350x. Although that part came true, nearly all of us expected it to be Rebel 300, but Honda has surprised us with the launch of a new model, CB350 or fondly called Honda Highness.
It is a completely made in India bike, resonating with the Atmanirbhar campaign, and this is the first time the world is seeing this bike. As it is made locally, expect it to be competitively priced. If rumours are to be believed it is 1.90 Lakhs, but Honda has said actual price will be announced later.
Honda Highness will be launched in the first half of October. The booking starts today!
You can book the bike with a token amount of Rs. 5,000 at the company’s official website or its outlets.
The new cruiser motorcycle has a proper classic look, and retro styled. Will be a great competition to Thunderbird 350x if competitively priced. Currently, Royal Enfield dominates the classic retro styled cruiser market with a market share of 85%.
Other interesting features are round shaped LED headlamps, chrome exhaust pipe, chrome mirrors, cjrome fenders, circular shaped digital display, retro styled turn indicators, sturdy fuel tank etc.
Honda Highness comes with tubeless tyres, alloy wheels, telescopic front forks, twin shock rear suspension, dual-channel ABS system and dual disc brake setup (310 mm front and 240 mm rear). It will be available in DLX and DLX Pro options with the latter getting two-tone colour schemes and Honda Smartphone Voice Control System. It will also feature Honda selectable torque control. The Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) system senses an loss of rear wheel traction it reduces torque to allow the tyre to grip
With the amount of feature onboard, 1.90 Lakhs price seems far-fetched. Expect it to be somewhere around 2.50 lakhs.
It weighs 181 Kgs, amd comes with bluetooth connectivity which will assist the rider in navigation and music control, its a segment first too.
