Vehicle Overview
Ninja 650 is the most impressive twin cylinder offering from the Japanese manufacturer when compared in terms of value and performance. It comes with the same 649 cc engine (now Euro4 compliant) producing 67.2 HP and 65.7 Nm of torque. It is lighter by 18 kg than its predecessor. Ninja 650 rivals the upcoming CBR650R in the Indian market.Honda CBR500R is a middleweight racer that carries a powerful 471cc, twin cylinder engine. The motor on the same is good for 46.9 BHP and 43 Nm of torque. It may never make it to the Indian shores as Honda is currently selling the higher spec CBR650F in the country. The motorcycle would have been a nice rival to the upcoming 500cc Benelli bikes. Honda CBR500R uses a 16.7 liter fuel tank while its top speed is claimed at 180 kmph. This seems less for a bike of this class as Yamaha YZF-R3 claims better figure as its top speed.
