Four-cylinder middleweight sports motorcycles are rare, beautiful things. The CBR650R is it. It’s got a smooth rush of turbine-like inline power, from low- to high-rpm. The next-level performance advantage that shifting with E-Clutch delivers – if you want it. Aggressively redrawn styling, inspired by our CBR1000RR-R Fireblade. And premium technology, like new TFT screen and Honda RoadSync connectivity, that make this star shine even brighter.
New Full Colour 5-Inch TFT Screen
With intuitive information display, straightforward ergonomics, full connectivity and optically bonded resin layers for maximum clarity and visibility in direct sunlight.
Inline Four-Cylinder Engine
The power of 4; a smooth rush through the midrange, exhilarating rise to the redzone and exhaust adrenaline-soaked exhaust note. And an A2 conversion is available, ready for full power.
CBR Inspired Styling
Our racing DNA runs deep. The CBR650R wears sharp new bodywork and dual LED headlights inspired by the awesome CBR1000RR-R Fireblade.
Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC)
HSTC smoothly manages rear wheel traction, wet or dry, so carving a set of corners is always a thrill. The system can also be turned off completely.
Honda RoadSync Smartphone Connectivity
Want to use your phone’s nav or listen to music? No problem. By downloading the Honda RoadSync app, you can connect it to the CBR650R.
Sports Quality Suspension and Brakes
Dual, radial mount Nissin four-piston calipers grip 310mm discs – hard. Showa 41mm SFF-BP USD front forks and rear shock offer fingertip feel for on-the-edge tyre grip.
The Power Of Four
For the purest sports performance the inline, four-cylinder DOHC 16-valve engine produces 70kW / 94 hp @ peak – up to a 12,000rpm redline – with 63Nm of torque for smooth drive out of corners. There’s a 35kW conversion for A2 licence, which is ready for full power once an A licence is held. And, because power needs control, an assist and slipper clutch manages the rear wheel through hard braking and downshifting, preventing lock-up.
Next Level Riding
Unique to Honda. E-Clutch takes riding to the next level. You can choose manual clutch control of the six-speed gearbox, just like normal. Or select E-Clutch via the TFT screen and leave the clutch lever alone. That’s it. Setting off from standstill, shifting up and down, and coming to a stop all you need do is operate the gear lever. E-Clutch does the rest – smoothly, instantly and at any time – like an expert sports rider. Stalling is impossible. Dealing with traffic so much easier. And need the clutch for any reason? No problem. Use it anytime.
Make The Connection
This bike’s got your back. The 5-inch full-colour TFT display is all new, operated by a backlit handlebar switchgear with a very natural hand position allowing better visibility in all conditions. Both have been designed together for easy use, and the screen is engineered to minimise glare in bright sunlight. It also offers full connectivity through the Honda RoadSync app. For Android and iOS smartphones, it means you can access on-screen turn-by-turn navigation, make and receive calls or listen to music while you ride.
