Honda has launched the Anniversary Edition of the H’ness CB350 at the Indian Bike Week 2021. The motorcycle made its entry into the Indian market in September last year. And given the recent spike in the demand for retro-based motorcycles, H’ness CB350 has had its fair share of success. The anniversary edition gets cosmetic updates in form of new colour shades, namely, Pearl Igneous Black and Matt Marshal Green Metallic. Mechanically the motorcycle remains exactly the same.

One prominent cosmetic update is the use of the golden logo for the “Honda” and “H’ness 350” badges on the tank and side panel, respectively. Other differentials include brown coloured seat, chrome side-stand, body-coloured front and rear mudguards and a reimagined crown handle. Honda has put on a sticker price of INR 2.03 lakh (ex-showroom) for the Anniversary Edition of the H’ness CB350.
