Q. I am confused between Ninja 650 2020 KRT edition VS CBR 650R? Which one is better?
  • CBR650R makes more power and at higher RPM and makes slightly lesser torque. Ninja being a twin cylinder engine makes more torque at lower rpm although it makes lesser power. Ninja 650 is good for long distance cruising. CBR with the 4 cylinder engine gives a sporty riding experience and makes more top speed than Ninja 650.
