Beyond the track
Most sport bikes are designed for racing displacement classes. How does that help you if 100% of your riding is done on the street? Instead of making another 600, we added 50cc to fatten up the CBR650F's inline-four engine that delivers a powerband that’s suited for a wide range of riding styles. We also opened up the rider triangle to create a bike that's more comfortable in traffic and on longer rides. What you end up with is a fun ride at a great price.
649cc DOHC Engine
Engines like this are what Honda does best. The four-cylinder design makes it smoother and faster revving than most twins, and offers ample low to midrange torque. Plus, for 2018, we’ve re-tuned it for even more power.
Smooth, nearly seamless shifts and revised gear ratios to match the way you want to ride: those are two of the characteristics that make this Honda so much fun to ride.
Power, style and an unmistakable growl—you get all three with the four-into-one exhaust system on the CBR650F.
Twin-Spar Steel Frame
A steel frame is strong, but not too rigid for the needs of the everyday rider. With a 57.1-inch wheelbase, the CBR650F is also quick and responsive—just what a machine in this class should be.
Improved 41mm Front Suspension
Upgraded for 2018, the CBR650F’s front suspension showcases some leading-edge technology. The 41mm fork is equipped with Showa’s new Dual Bending Valve (SDBV) internals. They make the fork lighter, provide excellent suspension action, and give you cartridge-fork performance without the cartridge-fork price.
4.5-Gallon Fuel Tank
You asked; we listened. A bike as versatile as the CBR650F needs plenty of range, and the 4.6-gallon fuel tank provides just that.
In addition to the speedometer and digital tachometer, the CBR650F’s instrumentation also includes clock, trip meter and fuel gauge.
Dual-Disc Front Brakes/Optional ABS
No scrimping here: Dual 320mm front discs offer excellent stopping power under a wide range of operations. In addition, Honda’s ABS system is available for more confident stopping in challenging conditions.
A 240mm hydraulic disc at the rear complements the twin front discs for plenty of stopping power.
Clip-on bars are an integral part of supersport bikes, and for the CBR650F they put you in a riding position that’s both sporty and comfortable enough for longer trips.
Supersport-Style Front Cowl
The CBR650F may be a terrific value, but it still offers plenty of style. Check out its CBR600RR-inspired fairing—just enough bodywork to cut the wind blast and give it a cool look.
