Japanese two wheeler manufacturer Honda had launched their premium motorcycle CB350 Highness in the Indian market last year. It is cruiser motorcycle which is meant to compete with bikes like Royal Enfield Classic and Jawa motorcycles. Honda H’ness 350 or Highness 350 is priced at Rs 1.9 lakh, ex-showroom. Honda sells it via Big Wing dealerships which is exclusively set up for premium and expensive Honda motorcycles. In a short span of time we have seen several videos of vloggers reviewing and riding the motorcycles on different terrains. Here we have another video from a vlogger who took his Honda Highness motorcycle to newly opened Atal Tunnel. This is probably the first Honda H’Ness 350 motorcycle to reach there.
The video has been uploaded by Safar Pe on his youtube channel. The vlogger is actually on a ride from Manali to the Atal Tunnel. He does not speak a word about how the bike performed throughout the trip. On his way to the Atal Tunnel, he stops at couple of places to show how much it had snowed in the last couple of days. The sound from the exhaust of the Honda Highness can be heard in the video as well. He could not show the moment when he entered the tunnel as his camera was not switched ON. Vlogger shows the snow capped mountains and snow filled valleys and river beds on the other side of the tunnel and starts his return journey. On his way back, he shows the tunnel from inside and maintains the speed limit too. The throaty exhaust note from Highness is heard inside the tunnel as well.
