The new 2021 Honda CB350RS brings a hint of retro and scrambler style, with wide dual purpose tires and front fork protectors (also known as ‘fork boots’ or a ‘dust cap’).
In addition, it brings sports fenders, sport-shaped LED flashers (used on other brand bikes), built-in under the seat taillights (also LED), and decorative band (pin-striping) over the fuel tank.
The Honda CB350RS arrives with two color options: Black with Pearl Sports Yellow (dual tone painting) and Radiant Red Metallic (with the decorative band over the tank).
