Honda H’ness comes out on top in every aspect one can imagine.

We are very excited to see it on the Nepali streets. In any case, we do think that Honda Nepal will bring the Honda Highness 350 in Nepal.

Royal Enfield is a popular choice in Nepal, where people continue to pay more for a lot less.

In sharp contrast, Honda is trying to offer more for… more.

Honda H’ness price in India is set at INRs. 1.90 Lakhs, which is about INRs. 30,000 more expensive than the ongoing Royal Enfield Classic 350.

If you convert the cost in Nepali Rupees with taxes, the Honda H’ness CB350 price in Nepal is expected to be below 10 Lakhs.

Let’s not forget, Honda is a Japanese brand, which comes with a legacy and expensive price tag. (case in point: Honda CB 400 SF)

Moreover, the features on offer exceed that of Royal Enfield Classic 350 by a long shot! So, please expect the price to be a bank breaker.

Yes! Honda H’ness features a whole lot of 1st in the segment features alongside its killer looks and powerful engine.
