Sportbikes are a special breed: explosive power, full faired styling, nimble handling. And with the Honda CBR650R, we’ve taken sportbike expectations to a whole new level. It starts with the high-revving inline four, offering near-endless power that’s at home on the track and city alike. Then there’s the chassis: light, strong, delivering excellent feedback and comfort. This year’s CBR650R features anti-lock brakes too—a real bonus for street riders. And as for the styling – this bike stands out everywhere you take it, with design cues pulled straight from our supersports. This is a sportbike designed for the modern era, with comfort, performance and style that once experienced, is never forgotten.
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.
The CBR650R looks just the way a modern sportbike should—all business, with a generous dose of style. Check out MotoGP World Champion Marc Marquez’s dominating Honda RC213V, and you’ll see where the CBR650R gets its good looks. Plus, the bodywork is aerodynamic and refined, so you can tuck in at speed.
4.1-GALLON FUEL TANK
A bike as versatile as the CBR650R needs plenty of range, and the 4.1-gallon fuel tank provides just that.
In addition to the usual speedometer and tachometer, the full-flat instrument panel features an LCD readout with indicators for gear position, water temperature, peak-hold display of engine RPM, upshift indicator, and more.
The CBR650R uses an eye-catching dual-lens LED headlight that casts a powerful, scientifically tuned beam. It’s both brighter and smaller than a conventional design, and contributes in a big way to the CBR650R’s sense of style.
Mufflers need to accomplish four things: They need to quiet the engine without robbing power, they need to help tune engine output, they need to sound great, and they’re a huge style element on any bike. The CBR650R’s exhaust knocks it out of the park on all counts, and sounds like only an inline four can.
Honda SELECTABLE TORQUE CONTROL (HSTC)
With Honda Selectable Torque Control System (HSTC) the CBR650R offers you peace of mind during aggressive riding conditions. The system adjusts engine power to optimize torque at the rear wheel, reducing rear-wheel slip. And here’s the best part: you can turn it on or turn it off with a handlebar-mounted switch.
The CBR650R refines a classic Honda design. The twin-spar frame incorporates pivot plates, engine hangers, seat rails, and other components that all reduce weight. It’s light, strong, and provides the basis for the CB650R’s stellar handling.
Power, style and an unmistakable growl—you get all three with the four-into-one exhaust system on the CBR650R.
A 240mm hydraulic disc at the rear complements the twin front discs for plenty of stopping power.
REFINED INTAKE SYSTEM
The CBR650R features a twin-duct intake design, engineered to ram cool, dense air into the airbox, increasing horsepower.
Smooth, nearly seamless shifts and gear ratios matched to the way you want to ride: those are two of the characteristics that make this Honda so much fun to ride.
The assist slipper clutch lightens clutch operation by approximately 12 percent compared to previous models, and that reduces rear-wheel hop during rapid downshifts.
SPECIAL ENGINE TUNING
Finely-tuned valve timing and piston shapes improve engine response, especially from the idle to 8000 rpm. This delivers a big advantage in urban environments.
SPORTING RIDING POSITION
Comfortable for casual, weekday use and more aggressive weekend sport rides alike. The seat/bar/peg relationship in any motorcycle is critical, and with the CBR650R, you’ll truly feel like a part of this bike.
The CBR650R’s front suspension showcases some leading-edge technology. The 41mm fork is equipped with Showa®’s Separate Function Fork (SFF) which offers reduced weight, superior rigidity, and excellent overall performance. An aluminum lower triple clamp completes the picture.
RADIAL-MOUNT FRONT BRAKES
Featuring huge 310mm discs, the CBR650R also comes with radial-mounted four-piston calipers. The result is premium sportbike stopping power that’s linear and easy to modulate.
