After the success of the Honda CB 350 DLX in Nepal, Syakar Trading Company Pvt. Ltd–the authorized distributor for Honda motorbikes and scooters here–has launched the Honda CB 350 RS. The Honda CB model has created a singular identity in the Nepali market, and the company says they are confident that the CB 350 RS will live up to bikers’ expectations as well.
Honda CB 350 RS overview
The Honda CB 350 RS design is heavily influenced by the larger CB 1100 EX. It inhabits the middle-weight, modern-classic segment and features a retro cosmetic theme. The RS comes fitted with advanced features and technology such as a prominent round LED headlamp, tail lamps, and side indicators with a fire-ring design. It has a curvy fuel tank–which prominently features the Honda emblem–that extends to the seat, which is tan leather. Also featured are elements like chopped fenders, chrome-finish exhaust, and some blacked-out elements, all of which boost its cutting-edge character.
The Honda CB 350 RS will be competing in the rapidly growing retro-motorcycle segment in Nepal. To stand out in the segment, Honda has packed the CG 350 RS with multiple modern features related to rider safety and convenience. The motorcycle shafts have been designed to reduce vibration; there is an engine start/off switch for convenience; and the bike is also equipped with an assist slipper clutch. This clutch feature smoothens the riding experience over a variety of terrains, enhances comfort, reduces unpleasant shocks, and ensures less rider fatigue. The bike also comes with a side-stand indicator, an engine inhibitor, and a hazard switch.
The CB 350 RS is equipped with a semi-digital instrument cluster that displays useful realistic information such as distance to empty, average mileage, real-time mileage, battery voltage, and gear position, to name a few. Additionally, to ensure safer rides on hilly and slippery roads, the bike has been equipped with Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC). This particular feature adjusts the engine power to optimise torque for the rear wheel, thus reducing rear-wheel slip; it can be turned on or off by a switch mounted on the handlebar. The dual-channel ABS is another safety feature of the motorcycle.
The propulsion of the Honda CB 350 RS is handled by a 348.36cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled BS6 engine paired to a 5-speed gearbox. The engine generates a maximum power output of 20.5bhp at 5,500rpm and a maximum torque output of 30Nm of 3,000rpm. The motor is held by a double-cradle frame that is linked to telescopic forks and dual-shock absorbers. The company says that the engine provides smooth acceleration without vibration across the rpm band. For braking, the motorcycle has a 310mm large disc brake at the front and a 240mm disc brake at the rear.
The Honda CB 350 RS is available in two attractive colour options: dual-tone fuel tank (Precious Black with Pearl Sports Yellow) and pinstriping on the fuel tank (Radiant Red Metallic). The dimensions of the motorcycle are 2163 mm (length), 800 mm (width), and 1107 mm (height). Similarly, the bike weighs 181 kg; the ground clearance is 166 mm; the seat height is 800 mm; and the wheelbase is 1441 mm. The bike’s fuel capacity is 15 litres.
