Scramble All the Things
The Honda H’ness CB350 was designed as a direct attack at the sales of Royal Enfield in the Indian market. India has a huge population of low-displacement motorcycle riders, and due to that fact it’s important that companies like Royal Enfield and Honda build as many low displacement options as possible.
With the H’ness CB350 having such great success (Honda sold record amounts in the first month of sales), it was quickly confirmed after the initial release that a cafe racer styled version was on the way to production. Rumor has it, there could also be a hidden scrambler edition to go along with it.
Although Gaadi Waadi – an Indian publication – broke the news of the cafe racer, Japan’s Young Machine added that the scrambler could be set to release next summer after the official 350 launch in Japan.
Whether or not these rumors come to fruition is totally up to honda, but in the event that they do decide to offer a few more 350 options, it could very well be the final nail in the coffin when it comes to the ongoing Royal Enfield Meteor 350 v.s. Honda H’ness battle.
