CB650R

RiDE (UK) - - Rides Month In Bikes -

Honda’s ‘Neo Sports Café’ fam­ily gets a mid­dleweight mem­ber. Sit­ting per­fectly along­side the CB1000R, CB300R and CB125R launched ear­lier this year, is the new CB650R. It’s 6kg lighter and 4bhp more pow­er­ful than the CB650F it re­places and gets a new set of up­side-down forks and ra­di­ally mounted front brake calipers. Power is now up to 94bhp (which is what the Hor­net 600 had 20 years ago, for those keep­ing score). Sur­pris­ingly, it now also has trac­tion con­trol too. A price of around £7000 is likely.
