Honda, the renowned Japanese two-wheeler manufacturer, has expanded its portfolio in India with the launch of special edition versions for its popular neo-retro bikes, the CB350 H’ness and CB350RS. These exclusive variants have been named the “Legacy Edition” for the CB350 and the “New Hue Edition” for the CB350RS. The starting price for these special editions is set at Rs. 2,16,356 (ex-showroom).
CB350 Legacy Edition: A Nostalgic Tribute
The CB350 Legacy Edition pays homage to the timeless design and iconic styling of the CB350 from the 1970s. This special edition exclusively features a striking Pearl Siren Blue color scheme, evoking a sense of nostalgia. The “Legacy Edition” badge on the fuel tank serves as a testament to its retro inspiration.
The deep blue base is complemented by fresh graphics adorning the CB350’s bodywork. Chrome accents on the exhaust, crankcase, fenders, and grab rails exude classic vibes. The rear fender maintains a classic shape, while the round LED turn indicators add to the vintage aesthetics. The CB350 Legacy Edition is priced at Rs. 2,16,356 (ex-showroom).
CB350RS New Hue Edition: Contemporary Style with Options
In contrast to the single-color scheme of the Legacy Edition, the CB350RS New Hue Edition offers riders two distinct color choices: Sports Red and Athletic Blue Metallic. Honda presents this edition as a blend of a superior stance and contemporary style.
Both Sports Red and Athletic Blue Metallic variants come with eye-catching tank graphics, body-colored grab handles, and headlight covers. The CB350RS New Hue Edition enhances its style quotient with sleeker turn indicators, a sportier rear fender, black crankcase, black exhaust, and other modern elements. The CB350RS New Hue Edition is priced at Rs. 2,19,357 (ex-showroom).
Unchanged Powertrain and Features
Despite the special edition treatment, both motorcycles retain their original powertrain and mechanical components. Under the hood, they house the familiar 348.36cc single-cylinder air-cooled engine, delivering 20.8 bhp and 30 Nm of torque. This engine is mated to a 5-speed gearbox equipped with a slipper clutch.
Additionally, both models preserve features like Honda’s traction control system, dual-channel ABS, and a semi-digital instrument cluster with Bluetooth connectivity. However, navigation functionality remains absent.
