A THRILLING RUSH TO THE REDLINE
It’s what we do. Four-cylinder power at its very best.
Let’s talk facts. With the CBR650R’s inline four-cylinder, DOHC 16-valve engine, you’ve got a cool 12,000rpm redline, 70kW and 64Nm to play with – that’s a whole load of playtime – and this bike leads the class with its power-to-weight ratio. But, there’s also an easy conversion available from Honda dealers to make it A2 licence friendly, just in case you’re starting out. An Assist/Slipper Clutch eases upshifts and manages hard down changes, while Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) maintains rear wheel traction, so you can focus on carving a perfect arc through turns. And, with no loss of performance, we’ve made the engine EURO5 specification thanks to detail changes in the collector box and muffler.
