The Honda CB350, H’ness CB350, & CB350RS get the same 350cc engine but are intended for different riders. We take a look at Honda’s 350 family and explain the differences between the three bikes

The Honda CB350 family is a modern day rendition of the twin-cylinder CB350 from the ‘70s and the 80’s but with a single-cylinder engine. The triplets - CB350, H’ness CB350, and the CB350RS – are direct rivals to the Royal Enfield Classic 350, Bullet 350, and Meteor 350. Each of the CBs has its own variants, and accessory kits to further personalise them as per your taste. We take a look at how the three Hondas differ from each other despite being based on the same platform.

Honda CB350 Engine: 348.36cc air-cooled single-cylinder

Honda CB350 Power/Torque: 21.07PS / 29.4Nm

Engine, Specs, and Price

The Honda CB350 is the most retro-styled bike amongst the trio. It’s aimed at more mature customers who want their bikes to look old-school and want to ride comfortably. The Honda CB350 has a split-seat setup, chromed-out mirrors, headlight cover, and pea-shooter exhaust for a touch of classic styling.  

The CB350 has two sub-variants, and here’s how they are differentiated in terms of features:

The H’ness CB350 is a slightly more youthful iteration of the CB350.

This too has a dash of chrome to keep it attuned to the retro character of the CB350. The H’ness has 5 variants, with the most unique one being the cafe racer kit that gives it sporty body kits like a headlight cowl, a single seat and a pillion seat cowl. 

The H’ness has four sub-variants, and the following is how they are differentiated:

The Honda CB350RS is a scrambler-styled bike that is targeted at the adventure-loving enthusiasts. It has a rugged-looking rear-end with a protruding mount for the number plate and indicators. It also has a single-piece seat, a lower handlebar, and a blacked-out exhaust, and block-pattern tyres which make it visually different from its siblings. While it gets the same 19-inch front wheel as the other two bikes, it has a 17-inch rear-wheel (18-inch on the other two). At 168mm, the RS has the most ground clearance of the three bikes. It too is available in four sub-variants, and here’s how they are different:
