The all-round excitement of Honda’s famed middleweights is within reach for every rider, with the new 2016 CBR650F and CB650F now LAMS approved.
The CB650F channels streetfighter attitude into its four-cylinder engine for a high quality riding experience for all levels of ability. Tuned for optimum performance in the low-to-mid rev range, the sprightly CB redefines poise on the tarmac.
The sporty CBR650F has been designed to put the rider in tune with the machine and offers the ideal partner for conquering corners on both the open road and in busy urban streets.
Honda created a new 649cc DOHC four-cylinder engine for these models and with their full-bodied sports bike howls radiating from the exhaust, the CB650F and CBR650F tick all the right boxes.
The steel diamond frame has its rigidity balance specifically tuned to deliver outstanding handling and rider feedback. Both the rear shock and 41mm telescopic fork have been developed to work closely with the frame’s performance-driven dynamics to provide supple control to the rider in all conditions.
The CBR650F offers a riding position on the relaxed side of sporty, while the naked CB650F retains its upright riding position, placing the rider close to the bike’s centre of gravity.
The new models also offer stunning new colour options, with the CB650F available in Matt Gunpowder Black Metallic and a Tri-colour Pearl Metalloid White, and the CBR650F available in Graphite Black and a Pearl Metalloid White.
