Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India, Private Limited will be launching a new version of the CB350 in the Indian market tomorrow. As of now, the motorcycle is offered with a modern-retro design, called CB350 H'ness and there is also a sporty version which is called CB350RS. The new upcoming motorcycle will be a cafe racer and it's already been shown to the dealers.

It should be fair to expect that the CB350 Cafe Racer will sit above the current CB350s in the line-up. So, a starting price of around 2.15 lakh can be expected. However, it is possible that some paint schemes command a premium just like the current 350s.

The leaked pictures have revealed the changes already. The CB350 Cafe Racer will come with a cowl for the headlamp but the headlamp itself will stay the same LED unit. It seems like the motorcycle will boast a different fuel tank. The seat will also be different and more importantly, there will be a tail cowl to complete the cafe racer look.
