Absolutely. What Honda needs is the true blue CB350 with it's classic good looks, twin pods, twin pipes and the amazing two cylinder engine.....not another copycat Bullet.

Many have reported getting 40+ Kmpl in the latest RE Classic 350. In fact some have reported even 45 Kmpl.

On my 6 month old, 6000 km run Classic 350, I get 38/39 (if ridden at 80/90 kmph) to 47/48 (if ridden at 65/70 kmph) on highways.

Dear mods, some kind of bug in post #47. The original post is not mine, still showing as posted by me (RD150). Request you to look into it.

I had a Honda 150cc commuter for 4 years and it had its fair share of niggles and outright problems. Infact I had to sale it because of a big issue that their ASC couldn't solve and admitted that it's a common issue. Whereas although my RE ownership experience is less than a year but so far seems alright in terms of reliability. Fingers crossed. Honda being supreme reliable is a myth today. May be their litre class motorcycles are more reliable compared to a Harley but in this segment they are all the same and infact Honda bikes are coming with many issues these days. You can find some in Tbhp itself.

My classic 350 is two months and thousand KMs old. I'm getting about 31kmpl in 100% bumper to bumper city traffic. I haven't taken it to highways yet so can't comment on highway mileage figure.

So at least 35 kmpl can be expected in normal city rides.
Assuming the comfort it offers, I think it's still worth it.

Can't assume the exact figure. It also depends on road conditions and riding styles. Considering my bike has done only 1st service, I hope it will increase in the future. But let's not get too off topic here.

I personally think Honda could've done much better by launching their international products like they did with CBR250R back in time and more recently the CB300R. These are what Honda is known for in lower capacity single cylinder segment and they should've stuck to that and market them properly rather than trying to get out of its character and have CB350 line up which is anything but Honda. If RE wants to make a CBR650R copy from their own 650 line up by tweaking the engine and what not, it'll be a flop. Don't know why Honda is trying to do the opposite.
