Honda recently launched their all new 350-cc cruiser motorcycle H’Ness in the market. Honda has already started the delivery of the motorcycle and many videos of the motorcycle regarding the ride quality and handling have already come online. The Honda Highness directly competes with Royal Enfield Classic 350 and Jawa Forty-Two in the segment. Honda Highness is a retro modern modern motorcycle that is being priced at Rs 1.9 lakh, ex-showroom. Here we have another video that shares what a Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 owner thinks about the Honda Highness.
The video has been uploaded by Abhinav Bhatt on his youtube channel. The vlogger had come out for a weekend ride with his friend who owns an Interceptor 650. vlogger’s friend had ridden the Honda Highness for about 40-45 kms before he started sharing his thoughts about the bike. The Interceptor owner was very surprised by how smooth the Honda Highness was. There were several small things that he loved about the bike like the digital information display that shows time, DTE, fuel economy and other information.
The fit and finish of the bike was very impressive and the bike had very little vibration at higher speeds. The seat were neither very hard nor very soft and were suitable for long distance cruising. The rider used to have a RE Classic 350 which is the direct rival and in comparison to the Honda Highness was a very advanced motorcycle.
He loved how smooth the gear shifts were, the light clutch lever, LED lights, subtle thumb from the exhaust, braking and so on. It was not like Honda Highness felt like a perfect motorcycle. He did feel the lack of power when he sat of Honda after riding the 650. It is a slowly accelerating motorcycle in comparison to the 650. It is meant for cruising and not high speed runs. He added that the ORVM stalks could have been a tad bit longer for better view and he feels that Honda could have also offered a back cushion for the pillion. Apart from that he was pretty impressed with the motorcycle and ends up calling it a value for money option. He even says that if he had Rs 2.5 lakh lying with him, he would have gone for Honda Highness and opted for accessories to make his life even more better.
