Honda is preparing to launch a new 350cc adventure motorcycle this year
Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India is planning to launch a new 350cc adventure motorcycle or a crossover motorcycle this year. The new bike is expected to hit the showrooms by Diwali later in 2023.
This bike will be based on the H’ness and CB350 RS platform and is expected to be an adventure bike or crossover or a scrambler. It is not the CB300X that was expected to be based on the CB300F.
The project still hasn’t got the green signal from the Japanese headquarters but it is expected to make its debut in India this festive season.
It is expected to come with the same 350cc single-cylinder engine that produces 21 BHP at 5500 RPM and 30 Nm of torque at 3000 RPM. The engine is mated to a 5-speed gearbox and we will see the same specs on the new bike. However, the engine might get some different tuning for the new motorcycle.
Expect a tall stance, long travel suspension, high ground clearance and a switchable ABS. It will compete with the likes of the Hero XPulse 200, Royal Enfield Himalayan and the Suzuki V-Strom SX.
