What R You Today?
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.
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.
E-Clutch 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.
