Honda CB350 RS has been launched in India.
It 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.
However, this isn’t ‘new-new’ per se.
It is based on the much-anticipated Honda H’ness 350. As expected, it shares most of its components with one another.
Nonetheless, there are few interesting changes that make Honda CB350 RS unique.
Honda CB350 RS price in India is set at INRs. 1.96 Lakhs.
We will talk about the expected arrival in Nepal, pricing, and more in a bit. Before that, let’s take a quick look at Honda CB 350 RS.

Honda CB350 RS Overview
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 Highness CB350 is powered by a powerful 348.36cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled PGM-FI engine. It can generate a max power of 20.8bhp at 5500rpm and max torque of 30Nm at 3000rpm.
Moreover, it is mated to a 5-speed gearbox with an impressive 15-liter fuel tank.
As expected, Honda has carried over the engine from the Honda H’ness 350.
Hence, you will get performance-assist features like the Main Shaft Coaxial Balancer, Assist Slipper Clutch, Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC), and Roaring Exhaust Note.
Honda CB350 RS is feature-loaded with cool and awesome features. Here is a list of features in the 2021 Honda CB 350 RS.

Honda CB350 RS Price in Nepal and Availability
Honda CB350 RS price in Nepal will be a bank breaker.
Talking about its availability, Honda CB350 RS is yet to be confirmed for the Nepali market. However, there are strong indications that Honda Nepal is planning something.
Regardless, I still expect the pricing of the Honda Highness 350 and Honda CB350 RS to be controversial.
Perhaps that is why Honda Nepal is still reluctant to introduce Hornet 2.0 in Nepal.
Again, it is all speculation at this point. Nevertheless, we will find out soon enough.
Honda CB350 RS completes with Royal Enfield Meteor and Jawa 42.
