The Honda H’Ness CB 350 has just been launched in India and marks the manufacturer’s entry into the 350-cc classic motorcycle segment.
The Italian two-wheeler maker has discontinued the Aprilia SR 125 from the Indian market to draw a distinct line between its entry-level scooters and the more premium ‘SR’ brand.
The BS6 Kawasaki Z650 and Ninja 1000 are set for launch soon and dealers have already started accepting bookings for the motorcycles.
The Honda CMX500 Rebel Bobber Supreme has been launched in Thailand with only 100 units on sale for 235,300 Thai Baht (Rs 5.43 lakh approx).
Pictures of the new Royal Enfield have surfaced giving us a glimpse of the updates.
A new Royal Enfield 350 motorcycle is expected to go on sale next year that will have a BS VI-compliant engine. The new Royal Enfield will have a gearbox casing that is similar to the 650-cc twins, suggesting a six-speed gearbox. The new bike will also get updated electronics with a fuel-injection system and the mandatory onboard diagnostics set-up. There is also a more advanced catalytic converter seen aft of the powertrain. There might be a slight bump in displacement considering the fact that the design of the engine head has been changed.
Other features on the new Royal Enfield include a new console and a rotary toggle ignition switch, reminding us of classic old-school motorcycles. The left side will have another toggle switch for high and low beam. There is a small knob where the pass-light switch was earlier, which may be a means to control the new digital screen.
The console has an analogue speedometer just like the earlier models. Under the speedometer will be a small digital display. Currently the 650 twins have a display that gives us the odometer reading, an option of two trip-meters and a fuel gauge. There are still no details on what information would be displayed on the new digital display.
Royal Enfield are likely to introduce the 2020 Classic 350 a few days ahead of the 2020 Auto Expo. We expect a price rise of between Rs 10,000 and Rs 15,000.
