Sporty performance and handling, comfort and practicality – the new CBR650F delivers it all. Compact and refined to the last detail, the CBR650F’s DOHC torquey liquid-cooled inline four-cylinder engine produces responsive acceleration that instantly gets the blood pumping from low revs right up to the 11,000rpm red line. PGM-FI fuel injection delivers reactive throttle feel and good fuel economy.

The CBR650F’s fairing purposely reveals the engine, giving it that street sport edge. But it also provides wind protection for longer journeys and of course, shares the distinctive CBR family style. And there’s more than a hint of Honda racing DNA about the minimal tail unit and short exhaust muffler.

LED front position lights and tail-light provide clear visibility. Large twin digital screens including fuel gauge, clock and trip computer lit by a white backlight make an attractive, clear and functional display. The CBR650F ‘s completely new inline four-cylinder engine is developed to deliver plenty of low to mid-range torque, 64kW peak power and good fuel economy.

Twin lightweight steel elliptical spars with tuned rigidity balance give the frame its strength and rider feedback. The 41mm telescopic forks deliver accurate front end control and feel, while the preload adjustable rear monoshock works through a sculpted aluminium swingarm.

Twin 320mm wavy front discs are gripped by powerful dual-piston calipers and Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) as standard.
