Japanese motorcycle giant, Honda, launched the new Honda CBR 650R in the Indian market at Rs 7,30,000 (ex-showroom) with bookings already open for the superbike.

Some new additions include new front fork, brake callipers, and more colour variants.

The new CBR brings to the table enhanced riding dynamics, aggressive styling, and few cosmetic changes.

The new CBR 650F is another addition to Honda’s portfolio after they launched the Honda Africa Twin earlier this year.

The bike sports a sleek aerodynamic design and has specially designed air ducts. Powering this beast is a 649cc DOHC inline, four-cylinder engine that’s coupled with a new 6-speed short ratio gearbox which helps in better acceleration. 

Some more additions to the package include new LED headlight, revised Nissin brake callipers, and the new 41mm Showa dual bending valve type fork.

It comes with a single-tube monoshock suspension unit.

Where the front gets a 320mm dual hydraulic disk brake, the rear sports a 240mm hydraulic disc brake with a single-piston calliper and resin mold pads.

The intake valve has been redesigned on the new CBR. It now comes with a 4 into 1 exhaust which employs a dual-pass internal structure in the muffler, reducing back pressure.
