Honda CBR650F Review

Overall this bike is very good. First time I sat on her and rode her I knew she was the bike for me. First time riders definitely have this bike in your sights she's a real contender!

REVIEW

★★★★☆
Great riding position with all day comfort, stylish looks, comfy seat, suspension and handling, ABS system
× Heavy twin spar steel frame, short screen, non-adjustable levers, no gear indicator, some reliability problems

I've only been riding since October 2017 so when I passed it was like a minefield for choosing a bike. Although I knew I wanted a sports bike! After sitting on many different bikes the CBR was the best fit for me in many ways. So glad I went for a minimum of 600cc than anything less. The CBR650F gave me the sports feel that I wanted and most definitely fun for a first bike.

She's very light, so easy to handle. I'm 5'9" and my feet touch the ground very comfortably. Although not the most BHP in the 600 group for a first time rider you won't be disappointed with its power or agility.
