The Honda GB350, also known as the CB350 in some Asian markets, will launch in Australia this December, INFO MOTO can report. 

Honda’s GB350 was first revealed in late 2020 as a single-cylinder retro bike built primarily for the Indian market, offering a fresh alternative to the likes of the Royal Enfield Classic 350 and recently launched Hunter 350.

INFO MOTO understands that the GB350 will launch locally in one base variant in a variety of colour schemes, positioned in the budget end of its LAMS-approved range.

The standard GB350 takes on a more upright stance compared to the sportier ‘S’ variant that is not expected to arrive Down Under.

Honda will also release its CB750 Hornet naked sportsbike, XL750 Transalp adventure bike, CL500 retro naked bike and a new 110-class scooter before year’s end, among other minor updates across its line-up. There are still no plans to launch the Africa Twin-based Hawk11 locally.

The GB350 is expected to rival the upcoming Indian-built Triumph 350 models, which have yet to be officially revealed, however, the Honda model will most likely be built in its Japanese production facilities.

Motivating the Honda GB350 is a 348cc air-cooled single-cylinder engine that generates 15kW (21hp) and 30Nm, and is matched with a five-speed gearbox with a slipper clutch as well as Honda Selectable Torque Control (traction control), while a fairly conventional telescopic fork sits above a single 310mm disc brake.

With the 15-litre fuel tank filled, the bike tips the scales at roughly 181 kilograms.
