2017 Honda CBR 650F
An all new and improved CBR for the new year
In 2015, Honda cracked up its first code in the middleweight segment with the fully faired sports tourer, the CBR 650F. Honda’s intent was to cash in the increasing interest of enthusiasts in the middleweight segment, and with the segment of sport tourers being one of the most practical ones, the CBR 650F made up a lot of sense for the Indian market. And there were a lot of strengths on the side of the CBR 650F – it looks quite good and beefy for a middleweight sport tourer, the engine is punchy, it is comfortable to ride on long stretches, and it gets ABS as standard.
However, the fact that the CBR 650F offered very few amount of newness or flashy bits (read Kawasakis) and its unjustified high price tag kept most of the potential buyers away from the motorcycle. Honda wants to make this bike a bit more special and appealing than before, which is why it has recently unveiled the first ever facelift of the CBR 650F at the EICMA 2016. The motorcycle comes with a couple of aesthetic changes and an important change under its skin. And as before, the CBR 650F promises to be a full-fledged sportsbike which can be very practical on a daily usage basis as well. Here’s a comprehensive look on what all changes did the new CBR 650F has received:-Read the full 2017 Honda CBR 650F review
