In the EICMA 2018, Honda presented two showroom mid-levels: 2019 CB650R and CBR650R. Although the 2019 Honda CBR650R is the segment's sports bike, the CB650R is the latest retro-futuristic addition to the Honda Neo Sports Café product family. Both are powered by 649cc four-bangers which now produce more
Honda works quickly when it comes to introducing Neo Sports Café motorcycles. When a Japanese brand announces line concepts, the production version is never far away. Although the 2019 CB650R can be traced back to the CB4 concept from 2015, Honda appeared to have updated the CB650R Neo Sports Café prototype just last month 2018 at the Mondial Paris Motor Show.
2019 The Honda CB650R's production version includes LED lighting and a new LCD monitor. Compared to the outgoing CB650F, this Neo Sports Café gets a longer rake angle to extend the wheelbase. It also drives about 6 kg in weight, partly due to a smaller 15.5 liter fuel tank. At the same time, the seat height remains unchanged at 810 mm.
2019 The CB650R receives 41 mm Showa SFF inverted front forks, two 320 mm front wheels with radial four piston calipers, one 240 mm rear disc, Honda selectable torque wrench (HSTC) clutch. It is available with or without ABS in April 2019 – MSRP $ 9,199 and $ 8,899.
2019 The Honda CBR650R adopts Honda's Super Sport style with long holes, enhanced aerodynamics and short tail. It also replaces 6 kg of weight from the previous CBR650F, replacing an increasingly aggressive driving position with repositioned handle bars and feet. The 2019 CBR650R produces 95 PS at 12,000 rpm.
2019 The CBR650R receives a new frame, an updated silencer, LED lighting, a new LCD and a revised accessory. Like the CB650R, the sporty CBR650R comes with HSTC, auxiliary and hose coupling, 41 mm Showa inverted front forks, Showa rear shock, two 320 mm front wheels, one 240 mm rear, 15.5 liter fuel tank, and a seat height of 810 mm. It is also available with or without ABS.
