Honda and Royal Enfield are fierce competitors on the Indian market, constantly trying to outplay each other. Hence, the recently released Honda H’ness CB350 was designed as a direct hit to the increasing sales of Royal Enfield Meteor 350 bikes in India. Of course, this market is no stranger to low-displacement bikes, and Honda seems to be pulling another ace from its sleeve.
The ace in this context is a cafe racer variant of their H’ness CB350 bike. This move makes sense as Honda made a record amount of 1000 sales in 20 days. Some rumors tell that along with the cafe racer variant, a scrambler is in the works too! That makes two aces, doesn’t it?
Some sources state that the scrambler variant will release in summer 2021 in Japan, after the Japanese release of the official 350 bike.
Of course, these are just rumors for now, and it’s totally up to Honda to stay true to them or not. If they do that, Honda H’ness CB350 may finally end their battle with the Meteor 350, with an obvious winner.
