Royal Enfield Meteor 350 vs Honda H’ness CB350 Video Review: Specs, features, price


Royal Enfield Meteor 350 vs Honda H’ness CB350: Roadsters and cruisers are pretty much Royal Enfield’s specialty but now, Honda has stepped in with the new CB350 and it looks like the competition is neck and neck.

Royal Enfield Meteor 350 vs Honda H’ness CB350 Review | So, this is the first time Honda has launched a classic roadster in India in the form of the H’ness CB350 which takes the fight to a motorcycle manufacturer that so far had no direct rivals. But then Royal Enfield also rolled out a brand new contender into the 350cc segment, the new Meteor 350 and it promises a whole lot more refinement than its predecessor Thunderbird 350. We pit them against each other to find out all we could about them and to say the least, they’re both champions of the league.

But you get a bit more with one or a bit less with the other, and so it’ll be quite an assessment of priorities when you head to pick one of these in the market. Express Drives walks you through all you need to know about the Meteor and the CB in the video below.
