Syakar Trading Company Pvt. Ltd., the authorized distributor of Honda bikes in Nepal, had announced the launch of the Honda CB350 RS about a month ago.

Honda CB350 RS is an all-new Honda motorcycle, bringing in a fresh new look in the 350cc segment. It sports a scrambler-like design with its retro-inspired design, sporty color options, and modern features.

Based on the Honda H’ness 350, it continues with the same DNA while introducing all-new scrambler styling.

As for the price, the Honda CB350 RS price in Nepal is set at Rs. 7.98 Lakhs.

Interestingly, it was available previously for Rs. 7.75 Lakhs. However, the recent increase in tax for two-wheelers has made Honda’s latest offering even more expensive!

Honda CB350 RS Overview

Design

While following in the footsteps of its Highness 350, the CB350 RS feels sporty with its aggressive styling and classic characteristics. It feels elegant and contemporary without losing its modern appeal.

CB350 RS is strikingly good-looking with its dual-tone fuel tank and pinstriping design.

The front section resembles that of the Highness, especially with its all-LED Headlamp. However, it replaces circular side indicators for modern eye-shaped LEDs.

Similarly, it resembles so much like the Highness 350 but with a twist of modern elements.

The modern appeal is more apparent with its under-seat LED tail lamp, sporty grab rail, tuck & roll seat. The entire motorcycle is brought together by a smoked black finish!

Honda CB350 RS is available in two colors: Black with Pearl Yellow and Red Metallic.

Honda CB350 RS Price in Nepal and Availability

Honda CB350 RS price in Nepal has been increased to Rs. 7.98 Lakhs. It was available for Rs. 7.75 Lakhs earlier.

Many were expecting Honda Highness CB350 to be more of an affordable offering, but many were disappointed with the price reveal.

Unfortunately, this does not help its case yet again!

In an unsurprising twist, Honda CB350 RS is now even more expensive.

Adding more to the controversy, the Honda CB350 RS costs more than the Royal Enfield Meteor Supernova. It is especially problematic as the Royal Enfield Meteor is priced slightly higher than the Honda CB350 RS in the Indian market.

Ironically, it isn’t just about a few bucks price difference.

It is very disappointing to see Honda’s pricing strategy on Hornet 2.0, Grazia 125 BS6, Highness CB350, and now CB350 RS.

Honda’s market share has taken a considerable hit with the rising competition.

Sadly, the “premium offering at a premium price” might not be the best-suited strategy in the current market scenario.
