INTRODUCING THE CBR650F
A SPORTS-ORIENTED PACKAGE
With effective but minimal fairing, the sports-oriented CBR650F is designed to conquer corners with ease while also being the ideal partner on busy urban streets.
Built on the same platform as its naked counterpart the CB650F, the CBR650F’s slim feel and high-set handlebars give excellent control and confidence while its sharp lines and racing livery are reminiscent of Honda’s CBR legacy. The CBR650F is available in Australia in Sword Silver Metallic and Pearl Metalloid White.
For reliable stopping power in all conditions the twin 320mm wavy front and a single 240mm rear discs are complemented by standard fit ABS.
CHASSIS & SUSPENSION
A high-quality steel diamond frame has been specifically tuned to deliver the desired handling characteristics and appropriate level of rider feedback.
The swingarm pivot plate is forged then welded together, while the gravity die-cast aluminium swingarm features a curved shape that arcs over the muffler. Adjustable 7-stage spring preload monoshock operates directly on the swingarm.
The shock and 41mm telescopic fork have been developed to work directly with the frame’s performance parameters to provide supple, neutral control in all conditions and a firmer spring rate is designed to match the sports-oriented focus.
A brand-new DOHC, 649cc four-cylinder engine has been developed to deliver high torque through the low-to-mid rpm range and strong acceleration from a standing start.
Positioned to sit forward in the chassis for optimal weight distribution, it is the true heart of the CBR650F.
PGM fuel injection is fed through a down-flow airbox and operates with information from four separate throttle body sensors on 32mm throttle bores for crisp and accurate throttle response.
