Features & Benefits

Key Features

- Sport-oriented ergonomics are also comfortable enough for longer rides. 

- 649cc liquid-cooled inline four-cylinder engine features a muscular torque spread through the low- to midrange portions of the powerband, especially below 4000 rpm.

- Tuned especially for strong acceleration from a standing start and strong midrange roll-on throttle response for real-world street-riding performance.

- Low center of gravity (CG), light curb weight, slim cross-section and high-set clip-on handlebars work together to provide lightweight steering feel and responsive handling.

- Full sport bike-style bodywork places the CBR650F squarely in the company of Honda's flagship CBR600RR and CBR1000RR supersport models.

- Transferable one-year, unlimited-mileage limited warranty; extended coverage available with a Honda Protection Plan.


- Liquid-cooled inline four-cylinder engine features Honda's Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI) system.

- Dual overhead camshafts actuate four valves per cylinder. This layout allows a high degree of freedom in cylinder head design for optimum performance.

- The camshafts are driven by a silent-type cam chain for reduced engine friction, and the surfaces of the cam-chain pins are treated with vanadium for lower friction and increased toughness.

- The piston pins and connecting rods are treated with a special friction-reducing protective coating for greater durability and efficiency.

- Cylinders are inclined at a 30-degree angle to help lower the center of gravity (CG) for more agile handling.


- The frame incorporates elliptically shaped twin 64mm x 30mm steel spars for tuned flex to deliver excellent sport riding characteristics.

- The engine is incorporated as a stressed member of the frame, an efficient layout for enhanced handling.

- Single-shock rear suspension is actuated directly by the strong yet lightweight aluminum swingarm for 5.0 inches of rear-wheel travel.

- Shock spring preload is adjustable in seven steps to accommodate variations in load and riding conditions.

- Large, 41mm fork with 4.3 inches of travel for a well-controlled yet comfortable ride.
