Honda CBR650F Overview

After being absent from the Indian for quite a few time, Honda has relaunched the CBR650F in India. The 2017 Honda CBR650F has been priced at Rs 7.30 lakh (ex-showroom). The prime reason for the discontinuation of the motorcycle was that it didn’t adhere to the new BS-IV emission norms. The new motorcycle looks similar to its predecessor but there are few visual differences. The 2017 Honda CBR650F gets full-LED headlamps, sharper fairing, redesigned tail lamp and muffler along with bronze finish on the engine crank case. The bike features twin-pod all-digital instrument cluster. It will be made available in two new shades - Millennium Red and Matte Gunpowder Black Metallic.
The bike is powered by a 649cc, inline-four mill that delivers 86.7PS of power and peak torque stands at 60.5Nm, however, the international model produces 90PS and 64Nm of peak torque. Honda has detuned the engine to better suit the low quality of fuel so that it doesn’t damage the motor. Honda claims a fuel efficiency figure of 20kmpl and full tank range of close to 350km with its 17.3 litres tank capacity. Claimed top speed for the bike is 194kmph. Braking is done by disc brakes on both ends while ABS is standard. Damping duties are handled by 41mm Showa Dual Bending Valve (SDBV) fork that has more suspension travel at 120mm (110mm in the older bike). While a preload adjustable monoshock does duty at rear. The Honda CBR650F competes against the Kawasaki Ninja 650F in India.

Must Read Questions & Answers Before Buying CBR650F

Q. Hi All, I am buying the CBR 650 coming August and there are a few questions on my head. 1. What's the yearly maintenance? 2. Worth buying over the Z900 or Versys? 3. Is there on road assistance from Honda? 4. Is there any safety measure against being stolen(like an alarm which can be installed) since I reside in a partially secure apartment. Has security cameras though. Thanks in Advance - CBR650F?
  • Hello Ashwin, the yearly maintenance for 650F for me is 35k including service intervals. I might be incorrect as well as I haven't changed any parts yet except the chain sprocket and tyre sets. It is worth buying above the versys but not sure how Z900 rides so cannot comment on that. There is no road assistance for Honda here in Pune but honestly, the bike is very reliable and easy to use that you won't face issues. Not sure if there is any space for alarm installation, like I said I haven't made much changes in my bike. You can check with the service guys about this. If you stay in Pune, the bike is available only in pashankar Honda and BU Bhandari Honda showrooms. Thank you.
  • 1. Depends on your running. Regular service expenses come up to between Rs 3000-5000 per service. 2. The Z900 offers more exciting performance while the Versys is a more sensible pick if you enjoy touring and foresee the requirement of good bad road ability. The CBR 650 is a good choice if you want a balance of everyday usability, touring capability and ease of ownership. 3. Honda does offer road side assistance. 4. Yes, there are aftermarket options for security ranging from motorcycle alarms to GPS trackers. 1. Depends on your running. Regular service expenses come up to between Rs 3000-5000 per service. 2.

    The CBR 650F is awesome bike in terms of performance and comfort... the only thing lacks is the instrument cluster design and styling of the bike which is given on the brand new CBR650RRest than that, the bike is awesome and stunning.

Do the mild updates for 2018 make the Honda CBR650F more appealing? Or is just a case of too much money for too few cc’s?

August 15, 2018  By Team ZigWheels

The Honda CBR650F received a few updates for 2017. We grab breakfast with a few owners to see if the changes alter the appeal of this motorcycle.

May 3, 2018  By Tushar Kamath

The Honda CBR 650F is definitely among the most highly anticipated motorcycles of 2015, which was launched at the mega RevFest event recently. We ride the highest displacement Honda motorcycle to be assembled in India to find out whether it lives up to the hype surrounding it...
