What Is It?

The Honda CB650R is an A2 licence friendly naked bike with a dash of retro styling which is closely related to the CBR650R sports bike. It's powered by a liquid cooled 649 cc inline four cylinder engine, producing 93.9 bhp at 12,000 rpm and maximum torque at 8,500 rpm.

Features include:

  • Steel twin spar frame with Aluminium swingarm
  • Dual 310 mm discs up front with Nissin four piston calipers
  • 240 mm disc at the rear with Nissin single piston caliper
  • Dual channel ABS
  • 41 mm Showa SFF upside down fork with 7-level pre-load and 120 mm travel
  • Rear shock with 10-level adjustable pre-load and 44 mm travel
  • Adjustable traction control
  • Full LED lighting (like the CB1000R)
  • 4->1 exhaust system, adjustable brake lever
  • Assist and slipper clutch
  • 6 speed gearbox with gear position indicator

Honda have updated the successful CB650F naked bike with their neo retro styling from the hugely popular CB125R / CB1000R, included a fancy colour LCD dash, made the riding position more aggressive with lower bars and knocked 6 kg off the weight.

They have also shrunk the fuel tank a bit, shaved almost 2 kg off the frame, upgraded to an upside down Separate Function Fork (SFF), upgraded the brakes, moved to non-wavy discs, included a slip / assist clutch, added a new wheel design and there's even a clever emergency stop system which flashes the hazards.

Power is also up a smidge, slightly higher up the range. The 10-spoke 17" wheels take a Metzeler Roadtec 120/70 tyre at the front and a 180/55 at the rear.

Accessories include a quickshifter (up only), screen, heated grips, 12V socket, under cowl and a range of Aluminium farkles shared with the CB1000R.
