New Honda 350cc bike patent leaked, showcasing the new design language

New Honda 350cc bike under development. The Japanese bike maker appears to be expanding its lineup within the 350cc segment, with recent patent drawings sparking speculation about a new addition to their portfolio. These drawings suggest that Honda might be developing either a scrambler variant based on the H’ness CB350 platform or an updated version of the CB350RS.

Upon closer inspection of the design, we have noted similarities to both the adventure bike and the CB350RS. The new motorcycle features a distinct fuel tank reminiscent of the ADV, with a metal bracket at the bottom and an overlapping rider’s seat. However, the side and tail sections bear a striking resemblance to the CB350RS.

Under the hood, the bike is expected to house the same 348.36cc, air-cooled, single-cylinder engine found in the CB350 and CB350RS models. This engine produces 20.7 BHP at 5500 RPM and 30 Nm of torque at 3000 RPM, mated to a 5-speed gearbox.

In terms of chassis, Honda might opt for the familiar half-duplex cradle frame utilised in the current CB350 range. Suspension setup could include a telescopic fork at the front and twin shock absorbers at the rear. The patent drawings suggest a 19-inch front and 17-inch rear wheel configuration, mirroring that of the CB350RS.

With Honda’s recent refresh of the CB350 lineup, speculation is that this new motorcycle could potentially hit Big Wing showrooms by the end of 2024. However, until official confirmation is provided by Honda, we will eagerly await further developments on this intriguing addition to the 350cc segment.
