The CBR650F is Honda’s middleweight sports-touring motorcycle and its entry-level in-line four-cylinder offering in India. It recently got a few cosmetic and mechanical upgrades with no changes to its price tag, thus adding a value-for- money quotient to the bike. The bike gets a more relaxed riding position as compared to its Supersport cousin, the CBR600RR, which is sold internationally. This not only serves to enhance its touring capabilities but also makes the CBR650F a powerful commuter. It uses a 649cc inline four-cylinder engine that produces maximum power of 90bhp at 11,000rpm and peak torque of 60.5Nm at 8500rpm and is mated to a six-speed gearbox. This unit is now BS-IV compliant and gets a few revisions that include a dual-pass internal structure in the muffler and shorter air intake funnels. Honda has also revised the gear ratios to give the CBR650F improved acceleration.
With dual-channel ABS as standard, the bike’s braking power has improved. It gets twin 320mm petal discs for the front, while the rear gets a 240mm single petal disc, both Nissin units. It rides on 17-inch alloy wheels that are shod with 120mm and 180mm Dunlop rubber for the front and rear respectively. Suspension duties are taken care of by 41mm Showa forks at the front while the rear gets a monoshock. Apart from the ABS, the CBR650F does not feature any electronics. Cosmetically, the bike gets new matte black and red paint schemes along with LED headlamps. The CBR650F is priced at Rs 7.3 lakhs (ex- showroom) and is the only fully-faired four-cylinder motorcycle you could buy under Rs 8 lakhs.
The bike comes with a faired design as the F in its name defines. The fairing has been done in such a way that the engine can be seen through the side body. The front gets a sharp body design and the single headlight cluster looks really different as all others have a twin headlight cluster generally. The fairing has been evenly spread around when seen from the front and the stylish visor suits the personality of the bike. The design of the alloy wheels looks pretty good. The rear seems to be simple yet attractive due to its huge tyre profile.
