Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India will be revealing a new motorcycle later today (February 16). Though the company has remained tight-lipped about what's in stores, the teaser image provided by the firm (above) strongly suggests that a H'Ness CB350 based scrambler might be in the making. Currently, there is no scrambler oriented bike in the sub 400 cc category, so this might very well become the first of its kind in the Indian market.

Here are the top things to expect from it:

  • A premium product:

The upcoming motorcycle will be a premium product, just like the existing H'Ness CB350, and will retail from the company's premium BigWing dealership chain.

  • Scrambler body kit:

The new bike will most likely be a more off-road oriented version of the H'Ness. As per the teaser image, it will get alloys wheels shod on to off-road specific rubber, unlike the existing H'Ness which gets road-focused tyres.

  • Same bones, new skin:

Expect the upcoming Honda bike to have a different look thanks to the adventure body kit. It may also feature a different setup for the handlebar, footpegs and a new seat. Also, a new tail section has been teased officially which packs a new tail light, slim indicators, and a stubby black painted exhaust.

  • Unaleterd mechanicals:

It will most likely feature the familiar 348.36 cc engine which made its debut on the H'Ness. The company might not retune the engine and thus the current 21.07 PS/30 Nm configuration may be carried over.
