The Honda CBR650R replaces the Honda CBR650F. It is imported via the CKD route. Two colour options are available – Grand Prix Red & Gunpowder Black Metallic.

Speaking about the launch of the motorcycle, YS Guleria, Senior Vice President - Sales and Marketing, Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India, said:

It was just last week that we announced the establishment of new premium big bike business vertical – the Honda BigWing in India. CBR650R further strengthens the model line up to be sold & serviced under Honda BigWing. Delivering a sporty & powerful performance with Honda’s Racing pedigree, the all-new CBR650R is set to excite middleweight biking enthusiasts.

Unveiled at the EICMA 2018 in Milan, Italy, the CBR650R is a significant step-up over its predecessor. The CBR650R comes equipped with premium hardware such as full LED lighting, fully-digital LCD instrument cluster, 41 mm upside-down Showa forks and an adjustable rear mono-shock at the back.

The motorcycle draws styling cues from the Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade. The revised styling is complemented by more aggressive ergonomics. The clip-on handlebars are placed further ahead than the CBR650F. The footpegs on the new model are 6 mm higher and 3 mm rearward.

Apart from the visual upgrades, the 2019 Honda CBR650R offers a 5% more powerful 649 cc in-line four-cylinder, 16-valve, DOHC engine. This engine generates a maximum power of 95 hp at 12,000 rpm and 64 Nm of peak torque at 8,500 rpm. A six-speed gearbox featuring assist/slipper clutch is standard.

Braking tasks are performed by 310 mm dual hydraulic disc with 4 piston callipers and sintered metal pads at the front. At the rear is a 240 mm single hydraulic disc with single-piston calliper and resin mould pads. The safety net of dual-channel ABS and Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) to manage rear wheel traction comes as standard.
