Pros of Honda H’ness CB350
1) Attention Grabing Design
Bringing retro style into contemporary might be challenging, but this is why Honda should be praised for. Just look at the headlamp and All Time illuminated indicators of the new 2021 H’ness CB350. They are round in shape(Retro style) but equipped with full led housing ( Modern ) which looks like tasty eye candy for enthusiasts.
Moreover it is also equipped with features like taillamp with winkers, chrome-plated exhaust and mirrors, digital-analogue instrument panel. So if you are someone who prefer blend of advanced new world features and the classic old-world charm then you should definitely checkout this motorcycle.
2) Highly Refined and Torquey Engine
|Type||4 Stroke, SI Engine|
|Max Net Power||15.5kW @ 5500 rpm|
|Max Net Torque||30N-m @ 3000 rpm|
|Bore x Stroke||70mm X 90.5mm|
CB350 got a Long Stroke Engine. A long-stroke engine is an engine that has a smaller bore than its stroke( checkout the engine specification table).
These long stroke engines do not produce as much power as a short-stroke engine. But ‘it’s not all bad, these engines can create a perfect amount of torque at the lower ranges. This makes them ideal for heavy bikes.
As a result the CB350 achieves its peak torque at very low rpm ie. 3000 rpm which is better than its competitor and we can say that the H’ness 350 produces a healthier torque than its competitors.
Moreover H’ness CB 350 uses a weight that has been added on the main shaft located in the rear of cylinder to balance the position and mass with the balancer shaft located in the front of the cylinder to eliminate vibrations. As a result this engines feels so much refined while riding.
3) Great Ride and Handling
Due to the stiff suspension,the H’ness 350 feels planted on roads at high speed. This bike also feels a lot more confident at the time of high speed cornering, thanks to its wide tyres which sticks on the road perfectly and makes it a perfect match for enthusiasts.
4) Build Quality
The H’ness 350 Feels great in terms of build quality. It has got full metal body which looks majestic in terms of overall fit and finish. Each and every component of the motorcycle feels robust which clearly shows that Honda has bestowed good build quality to the motorcycle.
Cons of Honda H’ness CB350
1) Stiff ride at low speed.
Yes ! The Stiff suspensions of H’ness CB350 are good while cruising at high speed but at the same time it offers you a stiff and a little bit uncomfortable ride while you ride over potholes, speed breakers and bumpy roads.
2) Pillion Seat Space
The pillion seat space is very less in CB350.So if you want a comfortable long ride on this motorcycle make sure you ride single.
The H’ness 350 is currently available only in Honda’s BigWing Dealership. Although Honda has assured that the BigWing dealerships will be widened to as many as 50 cities across the country by March 2021 but its biggest rival “Royal Enfield” is far ahead in terms of dealership and service network in India.
