HONDA, HNESS, DIFFERENCE

Honda had recently launched the H’ness CB350 to take on the likes of the Royal Enfield Classic 350, the Jawa 42 amongst other bikes. Now the company has launched another variant based on the same platform called the Honda CB350RS. We tell how different the two bikes are.

Honda recently entered the lucrative 350cc segment with the new Honda H’ness CB350. The bike then took on the Royal Enfield Classic 350, the Jawas and the Benelli Imperialle head on. Now though there is a new variant based on the same platform called the Honda CB350RS. We talk about the differences between the two.

The first thing to notice is that Honda has dropped the ‘H’ness’ tag from the CB. Hence it gets a new logo and that surely brings us a lot of pleasure. The badge looks rather retro and in turn is a good addition. The Honda CB350RS comes with a more modern design approach based on a scrambler. It has done away with the metal fenders seen on the H’ness and incorporated plastic ones instead. The headlight continues to feature LEDs but the ring is now blacked out. The indicators are new on the CB350RS as well. The instrument panel on the bike remains identical but the CB350RS does not get the Bluetooth connectivity feature as seen on the Deluxe model of the H’ness CB350. The tank and body panels remain same, but as mentioned before the badges are different. The foot pegs on the RS version see a slight revision and this means a revised seating triangle.

The rear now comes with a plastic fender and LED winkers as well. The rectangular LED tail light also looks smarter. Thanks to this redesign, the rear section of the seat has been redesigned and the old school metal grab handle has been replaced with a smart unit. This gives the RS a rather modern design as compared to the H’ness. Also take note that the entire bike has been de-chromed. Another significant change on the CB350RS comes in form of the rear tyre which is now a 17in one.
