Motorcycle & Scooter India Pvt. Ltd. (HMSI) has announced the global
premiere of the all-new CB350RS. The CB350RS is the second new introduction in
the CB family, which is ‘Made in India for the World’. The CB350RS is priced at
Rs 1,96,000(ex-showroom PAN India) onward.
unveiling of the CB 350RS was done in the presence of Atsushi Ogata, Managing
Director, President & CEO and Yadvinder Singh Guleria, Director – Sales
& Marketing, HMSI.
aggressively design new Honda CB 350RS has a shining bold Honda badge on the
massive fuel tank, 7-Y shaped alloy wheels, round-shaped LED headlamp with a
unique ring design, eye-shaped LED winkers and under seat sleek LED tail lamp.
lighter black smoked front & rear fender give the CB350RS a sporty look. The
muffler on side gets smoky-black finish accentuated with use of chrome. Fork
boots on front suspension give a rugged look while the sporty looking grab rail
compliments the overall design of CB350RS.
vintage looking segment first advanced digital-analogue meter integrates
details like torque control, ABS, Side stand indicator with engine inhibitor,
gear position indicator and battery voltage. The ride experience is further
enriched with fuel efficiency details displayed in three modes: Real time
mileage: Displays live fuel efficiency; Average
mileage: It displays average mileage based on the history of riding pattern and
condition and Distance to empty: shows the distance your CB350RS can travel
with remaining fuel in tank.
‘tuck and roll’ design of the seat gives superior cushioning providing relaxed
ride for daily commuting as well as during leisure rides. The CB350RS offers a
forward leaning riding position to match the sporty riding stance.
CB350RS is powered by a 350cc, air-cooled 4-stroke OHC single-cylinder engine,
which produces max power of 20.79hp@5500 rpm. The advanced PGM-FI system using
on-board sensors, constantly ensures optimum fuel delivery to the engine as per
the riding conditions allowing efficient combustion and lesser emissions. It delivers a max torque of 30Nm@3000 rpm,
which makes it an easy-going motorcycle for urban daily city commute.
engine uses offset cylinder position that reduces the sliding friction and
asymmetrical connecting rod ensures minimum energy loss while combustion. It
uses closed crankcase with a wall between crankcase and transmission reducing
energy loss due to internal friction.
air cooling system maintains highly dense air intake to improve efficiency and
ensures favorable combustion in all rpm ranges by keeping the engine
temperature within ideal range. The piston cooling jet improves engines thermal
efficiency, leading to an improved fuel efficiency.
shaft coaxial balancer placed on the cylinder eliminates both primary &
secondary vibrations making CB350RS a perfect riding companion.
CB350RS comes with a large tailpipe of 45mm that optimises balance with the
muffler capacity, producing a bold low-pitched sound. A single one-chamber
structure in the expansion chamber helps deliver a rich thumping exhaust note
when you wind on the throttle. Exhaust pipes are double skinned to prevent heat
discoloration and intact the visual appeal for long.
motorcycles gets segment first assist and slipper clutch that makes gear shifts
smoother while reducing clutch lever operation load ensuring less fatigue and
more comfort during a rides that involve frequent shifting.
bikes also comes with segment first Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) that
helps in maintaining rear wheel traction by detecting difference between front
and rear wheel speeds, calculating the slip ratio and further controlling
engine torque via the fuel injection. HSTC can be turned ON/OFF using a switch
on the left side of meter. A ‘T’ indicator in the digital display glows when
the system is engaging.
channel ABS prevents wheels from locking when brakes are applied in emergency
or when operated on slippery roads ensuring a greater sense of confidence.
Anchoring the motorcycle is a large 310mm disc brake on front and 240mm rear
disc providing adequate braking performance in any situation.
pattern tyres (front - 100/90, rear - 150/70) increase stability in different
riding conditions and improve overall road grip. The 19-inch front wheel gives
a distinctive modern look coupled with a 17-inch wheel at the back providing a
lower rear stance.
half - duplex cradle frame in steel pipe is used for a soft steering feel. Load
allocated to the front is optimized by mounting the engine at low position to
lower the center of gravity, which affects the overall riding feel and
maneuverability of the motorcycle.
highly rigid box-section steel tube is used for the swing arm to effectively
reduce distortion and transmit torque of the driving force to road surface
improving overall comfortable riding feel. The
skid plate underneath provides extra protection for engine so you can take on
section front suspension not only enhances the massive imposing image but also
provides immense comfort on rough roads. Pressurized nitrogen charged rear
suspension provides highly responsive rear damping performance.
on a smarter ride using Eco Indicator that uses sensors to measure the riding
speed and injected fuel volume to determine the economical riding. The Engine
Start/Stop Switch gives the convenience of turning-off the engine on brief
stops with flick of a switch. Ensuring safety of riders in low visibility
conditions is the hazard switch feature. The bike gets a a bolder and muscular
15-litre fuel tank.
CB350RS will be available in two colour options – Radiant Red Metallic and
Black with Pearl Sports Yellow. Bookings for the CB350RS are open at its
premium dealerships – BigWing Topline & BigWing across India.
