Honda CB650R is a sports bike available at a starting price of Rs. 8,68,293 in India. It is available in only 1 variant and 2 colours. The Honda CB650R is powered by 648.72cc BS6 engine which develops a power of 85.82 bhp and a torque of 57.5 Nm. With both front and rear disc brakes, Honda CB650R comes up with anti-locking braking system. This CB650R bike weighs 206 kg and has a fuel tank capacity of 15.4 liters.
Honda launched the CB650R mid-size naked bike for the first time in India in March 2021. Now, it accompanies the CBR650R fully-faired offering that has been available in India for a long time, but it had an ‘F’ in its name until around Jan 2019. Both bikes are based on the same platform but there are certain differences depending on their purpose.
Similar to the CB300R and the CB1000R, the 650cc iteration too boasts Honda’s ‘Neo Sports Café’ styling. It is a combination of retro and modern design elements with a circular headlamp, sculpted fuel tank, a tiny tank extension, and a stubby tail. Complementing its distinctive styling are modern features like full-LED lighting, fully-digital console, and Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) that is essentially the traction control system with switchable functionality. It also gets ESS (Emergency Stop Signal) that activates the front and rear hazard lights in an event of sudden braking.
