2014 Honda CBR650F

Feb 07, 2014 View Comments by

2014 Honda CBR650FHonda seems to have no intention on letting up with the release of new model after new model, and here is the latest, the CBR650F. Honda calls it “an affordable middle-weight sport bike” and with its 649cc in-line four, it certainly looks to fit that billing. Unlike a pure sport bike, however, the engine is tuned more for low-end torque and rideablilty than high rpm horsepower. To maintain a low center of gravity for ideal handling, the cylinders are tilted 30 degrees forward. Other features include elliptically shaped steel spars in the frame for “tuned flex” in the chassis, single shock rear suspension, and wave type brake discs. MSRP is $8,499 ($8,999 with ABS).
