Key Features of the new Honda CBR 650F
ENGINEERED to exhilarate:
The CBR 650F packs a punch with its 649cc, DOHC inline, four-cylinder engine and develops 63.7kW (85 HP) @ 11,000 RPM and a torque of 60.5 Nm @ 8500 RPM. Sadly these numbers are a bit lower than the international spec.
The CBR 650F now comes with a new 41mm Showa Dual Bending Valve type fork that provides excellent control. It is lighter and regulates how much compression damping can be reinforced for delivering superior performance levels, equivalent to cartridge type suspension units.
The single-tube, monoshock suspension unit with 7-stage spring preload adjustment and aluminium swingarm promises stability and strength.
Stopping at high speeds is no problem, the CBR 650F feels planted and in control at all times. The CBR 650F is equipped with new dual-piston Nissin front calipers and sintered metal pads on 320 mm dual hydraulic front discs. The rear gets a 240 mm hydraulic disc with a single-piston caliper and resin mold pads.
FEEL & HEAR the Roar of Power
The CBR 650F comes with a redesigned intake valve. The new 4 into 1 exhaust employs a dual-pass internal structure (rather than triple-pass) in the muffler, reducing back pressure. This helps deliver a wilder exhaust note when you wind on the throttle. Drive it out of a corner and accelerate through the six-speed gearbox and you get hard acceleration with the short gear ratios – more noticeable in the bike’s mid-range.
LEAD THE WAY
The sporty clear-lensed LED headlight in the new CBR 650F ensures that you can see well ahead on the darkest roads. The rear LED tail light is housed in the sleek tail section and emerges as a bright & noticeable spotlight.
SHARP, SURE & CONFIDENT
The CBR 650F is built around a steel diamond frame, which has been strengthened towards the head and made flexible at the spars to provide excellent rigidity and balance. This has been specifically tuned to feel the rush with agile real-world handling.
