THE PUREST FORM OF MOTORCYCLING
The Honda CB650F is stripped down perfection. It’s light, elemental and absolutely jaw dropping. It got refined for several years over in Europe and now it’s tearing up the States. We started with the engine from our popular CBR650F with an 11,000 rpm redline and gave it shorter gear ratios to ensure acceleration through the midrange. Revised intakes and a free-breathing exhaust mean more peak power too. With the new CB650F you get more of what matters: performance, acceleration, style and handling.
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 plenty of power through the entire rev range.
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 CB650F is also quick and responsive—just what a machine in this class should be.
41MM FRONT SUSPENSION
The CB650F’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.
Power, style and an unmistakable growl—you get all three with the four-into-one exhaust system on the CB650F.
A 240mm hydraulic disc at the rear complements the twin front discs for plenty of stopping power.
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.
In addition to the speedometer and digital tachometer, the CB650F’s instrumentation also includes clock, trip meter and fuel gauge.
The CB650F may be a terrific value, but it still offers plenty of style. Check out its mini cowl. You get just enough wind protection too.
Smooth, nearly seamless shifts and more 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.
