Honda CB650R Review
Honda CB650R Overview
To cater to the ever-popular middleweight naked motorcycle category, the Honda CB650R has been made available in the Philippines, in two color options of Grand Prix Red and Matt Gunpowder Black. The Honda CB650R gets the all-new neo-classic design theme which Honda has been following for all of its naked roadsters since last few years.
Honda CB650R Design
One look at the Honda CB650R, and it will surely manage to impress you with its excellent balance of classic roadsters of yesteryears and a pinch of futuristic essence. The Honda CB650R, for a middleweight roadster, looks beefy and has got the perfect sporty stance one could expect from it.
The front fascia of the Honda CB650R looks quite simple and minimalist, with a big round headlamp, which is a full LED unit and also gets a nice daytime running LED surround on its entire circumference. The headlamp is encased in a small circular plastic cowl, the upper corners of which get small and sleek LED turn indicators. The golden finished front forks and small front fender make it look even sportier from the front.
The side profile of the Honda CB650R makes it look like a beefed-up Honda CB150R, thanks to the bulky looking fuel tank with smooth knee recesses and sleek and angular looking silver-finished fuel tank extensions with the name of the motorcycle printed on it. The quad exhausts flowing out from the engine and going all the way to the rear emerging in single stubby underbody exhaust gives a sinister appeal to the motorcycle. The multi-spoke alloy wheels with their golden theme add a premium touch to the motorcycle.
Sitting below the long aluminium frame, the dual-tone golden and black theme for the engine makes the side profile look premium and burly. There are minimal side body panels, and the sleek and small rear side body panels below those split seats end up in a very small tail unit, which comes with a tiny rounded rectangular LED tail lamp. The rear fender, however, is quite long and comes with a stretched design and LED turn indicators mounted on it.
The long and wide handlebar is positioned slightly upright, which gives the Honda CB650R a very nice and commanding seating posture. Behind the handlebar and above the headlamp sits the small all-digital instrument console, which has a blue backlit theme and readouts for speedometer, tachometer, odometer, trip meters, fuel gauge, temperature gauge, gear indicator, average fuel consumption, average speed and clock on offer. The silver-finished handlebar levers and switchgear feel of the topmost quality.
Honda CB650R Ride & Handling
It’s not only the engine which has been shared between the Honda CB650R as well as Honda CBR650R – even the rest of the entire mechanical package has been completely lifted off from the faired motorcycle. This includes the entire suspension combination of separate function upside down hydraulic telescopic forks at the front and a 5-step adjustable monoshock at the rear, braking setup of 310mm dual discs at the front and a single 240mm disc at the rear and 120/70-17 front and 180/55-17 rear tires.
Honda CB650R Engine & Fuel Consumption
The Honda CB650R gets a silky smooth and powerful four-stroke, inline-four, liquid-cooled, fuel-injected, 649cc motor, which here is paired to a slick 6-speed gearbox. This engine has been shared with its fully-faired sibling of the same spec, the Honda CBR650R, and that too in the same state of tune – 93 PS of maximum power and 63.5 Nm of peak torque output.
Honda CB650R Braking & Safety
The Honda CB650R is not as technically rich as its European counterparts, and gets only the bare basic essentials in the name of electronic safety aids, including dual-channel ABS, assist and slipper clutch, engine kill switch and Honda Selectable Torque Control.
Honda CB650R Verdict
With a very superior mechanical package including the super refined and powerful inline-four engine and good suspension and brake setups, the Honda CB650R manages to impress a lot with that additional sense of neo-retro theme in its design. Despite being a powerful middleweight motorcycle, it is not too intimidating to ride for amateur riders.
