Compared to the 2014-2016 model there's a new muffler, the engine is painted gold/black instead of black/silver, power is up roughly 4bhp in the top half, there are revised Nissin calipers, the front light is now LED as well and the cowling along the radiator has been stripped back. Handling has been improved by upgrading to the latest Showa Dual Bending Valve (SDBV) fork.
The faired CBR650F version is essentially the same bike but with lower clip-on handlebars, sportier riding position and full fairing making it 3kg heavier.
The 6-spoke 17" cast Aluminium wheels take a 120/70 tyre at the front and 180/55 at the rear.
Accessories include the 35 litre top box (£625), dash visor (£120), heated grips (£340), pillion seat cover (£130) and a variety of Carbon look parts.
