Praveen M, Engineer-turned-motorcycle journalist. I'm a sucker for cruising down the highways, and twisties in the hills.

The 2018 Honda CBR650F gets new LED headlight, new air ducts in the fairing, reworked engine, and revised suspension and brakes. The 648.72cc in-line four DOHC engine features new intake and exhaust flow management. This set up helps in offering better breathability and reduction in back pressure. The engine pairs with a new 6-speed short ratio gearbox, which improves the mid-range performance. The powerplant makes 86.6 PS of power at 11,000 rpm and 60.5 Nm of torque at 8,500 rpm. The engine nestles inside a steel diamond frame.

The front end comes with a new 41 mm Showa Dual Bending Valve (SDBV) type fork. It incorporates a free-valve structure that progressively increases the amount of damping according to the road conditions. The rear monoshock features 7-stage spring preload adjustment and links with the aluminium swingarm. The bike also comes with revised two-piston Nissin front callipers that squeeze twin 320mm petal discs at the front. A single-piston rear 240mm disc is at the rear, and dual-channel ABS is standard. The motorcycle gets a 17.3-litre fuel tank and tips the scales at 216 kg, kerb.
