The clear-lensed LED headlights illuminate the darkest roads and city streets. The rear taillight is also LED to improve visibility and is positioned high for that uncompromising streetfighter look.
Keep up to speed with what’s going on underneath and around you. This simple, twin digital screen, with a white back light, means you won’t miss a thing: rev-counter, speedometer, fuel gauge, clock, odometer and warning lights are all clearly displayed.
The CB650F has revised two-piston Nissin front calipers that squeeze 320mm wavy discs. With two-channel ABS as standard, they provide strong braking power and confidence in all conditions. A single-piston rear 240mm disc is at the rear.
Shaped to ride
The seat has been created with a narrow middle section, this is not only good for rider movement around town, but helps ground reach when you’re on and off the pegs in traffic. For comfort, it’s been designed to sit on rubber mounts to minimise any vibration.
Pared back and hard, the smaller side cowls highlight the angular fuel tank and show much more of the muscular engine. The headlight cowl has been drawn in tighter, with sharper angles presenting a hard-edged appearance.
Engine casings are finished in an attractive, satin bronze coating. They not only contrast with the imposing black, DOHC engine, they highlight the CB650F’s super sport connection with Honda’s racing heritage.
A compact 649cc engine that’s smooth in every sense. The CB650F’s (EURO4 compliant) engine now develops 67kW @ 11,000rpm. This is down to a new intake and exhaust system with shorter air intake funnels linked to a down-flow airbox. Together with a 4-1 exhaust, with a larger muffler outlet, you can hear the power as well as feel it.
