Honda Teases New Model Based on CB350 Platform

Honda has dropped another teaser image of its highly anticipated new bike, codenamed “BABT,” and it looks like this two-wheeler is going to make a statement. Coming as a follow-up to the first set of teasers and photos released yesterday, the latest image showcases a sleek blacked-out theme and tank grips, hinting at a rebellious and edgy character.

Drawing inspiration from the successful Classic 350, the BABT bike flaunts metal fork covers and is likely to feature a headlight nacelle reminiscent of its predecessor. The fuel tank design takes a more rounded shape compared to Honda’s recent models, such as the H’ness CB350 and CB350RS. Previous teasers already highlighted a distinct fender design, possibly a full-length metal unit, which adds to the bike’s retro appeal.

Similarities to the H’ness CB350 are evident in other aspects of the upcoming 350cc retro-roadster. The split-seat setup, pillion grab rail, handlebar, and switchgear all bear a striking resemblance to its sibling model, which has been warmly received by motorcycle enthusiasts worldwide.

Enthusiasts won’t have to wait much longer to get their hands on this exciting new addition to Honda’s lineup. The Japanese manufacturer is expected to launch the BABT bike in the upcoming weeks, with an estimated price of Rs 2.2 lakh (ex-showroom). Riders can look forward to a blend of retro aesthetics and modern performance, making this bike a true head-turner on the road.
