2023 Honda® CBR650R
IT’LL REV UP YOUR PULSE, TOO
The 600 class is right where a lot of savvy sportbike riders land. Why? Six hundreds—especially inline fours like the CBR650R—just strike a near magical balance between power, weight, maneuverability and the human scale. And when you’re looking at a CBR650R, you’re also looking at a bike with a wide performance envelope, able to hold its own in the canyons and still practical enough for leisurely weekend rides or daily commutes. But if there’s one thing that really sets the CBR650R apart, it’s this bike’s engine. Nothing revs like an inline four, and nothing’s as smooth either.
Features may include:
- 649cc DOHC ENGINE
Engines like this are what Honda does best. The four-cylinder design makes it smoother and faster revving than most twins, and offers ample low- to midrange torque, plus plenty of power through the entire rev range.
- SPORTBIKE STYLING
The CBR650R looks just the way a modern sportbike should—all business, with a generous dose of style. But the CBR650R is also comfortable enough for a wide range of riding, from around-town commuting to canyon carving to day-long trips.
- Honda SELECTABLE TORQUE CONTROL (HSTC)
With Honda Selectable Torque Control System (HSTC) the CBR650R offers you peace of mind during aggressive riding conditions. The system adjusts engine power to optimize torque at the rear wheel, reducing rear-wheel slip. And here’s the best part: you can turn it on or turn it off with a handlebar-mounted switch.
- TWIN-SPAR FRAME
The CBR650R refines a classic Honda design. The twin-spar frame incorporates pivot plates, engine hangers, seat rails, and other components that all reduce weight. It’s light, strong, and provides the basis for the CBR650R’s stellar handling.
