The Honda CB 350 carries the modern-classic design inspired from the yesteryear CB range of motorcycles. It comes with a neo-classic LED headlight with DRLs, black alloy wheels and a 15-litre fuel tank that can be availed with a single shade or a dual-tone depending on the variant. The motorcycle also sports a contoured single seat that looks reasonably comfortable for longer saddle hours. Honda has also gone generous with the use of chrome on the fenders, twin-horns, exhaust, mirrors and also on the engine, quintessential for a modern classic. Powering the Honda CB 350 is a 348.36cc air-cooled OHC single-cylinder engine that puts out 21.07PS of power at 5,500rpm and generates 30Nm of torque at 3000 rpm, mated to a 5-speed gearbox with slipper clutch. In comparison, the Royal Enfield Classic 350 makes an almost similar power output but with a lower torque rating of 28Nm
