Honda has a long history of middleweight machines that blend user-friendly four-cylinder engines with a nimble, confidence-inspiring chassis.
A true middleweight standard, the CB650R pairs a light, versatile chassis to a 649cc inline four-cylinder engine with great torque and a smooth throttle delivery.
Tightly wrapped and aggressive, the CB650R’s Neo Sports Café style features the signature compact “trapezoid” proportion of short, stubby tail and short-overhang headlight. The long fuel tank is a key motif of the family design; its smooth lines accentuate the solidity of real metal surfaces and crown the engineering of the four-cylinder powerplant. It also houses the ignition.
Powered by a 649cc, DOHC 16-valve engine with upto 94 hp and 47 lb-ft of torque. Engine has been tuned to deliver good power above 10,000 rpm. Peak power arrives at 12,000 rpm, with peak torque delivered at 8,500.
An inverted 41mm Showa Separate Function Fork (SFF) offers great handling and reduced unsprung weight. The fork is held by a forged-aluminum bottom triple clamp.
Adjustable for seven-stage spring preload, the single-tube shock operates directly on the curvaceous, gravity die-cast aluminum swingarm.
