Even though the motorcycle has undergone a big change with noticeable differences, the dedicated specs of a sports motorcycle are alive for sure. The Honda CBR650R is powered by a DOHC, 16-valve, four-cylinder, 649cc engine which puts out 87 HP of peak power and 60.1 Nm of torque.

It is equipped with Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) which maintains rear wheel traction. The bike is equipped with dual-channel ABS, dual LED headlights and stylish alloy wheels. The fuel tank capacity of the bike is 15.4 litres, bringing a good amount of range for a sportbike of its class.

However, the CBR650R will be made on order as the local assembly may not take a long time once a pre-decided booking number is received. The powerful motorcycle rivals Kawasaki Ninja 650 indirectly while no direct rival with a fully faired body and four-cylinder engine exists in India. The ex-showroom price tag of INR 7.70 lakh is almost INR 32,000 higher than the price of CBR650F.

When it comes to choosing between the Kawasaki Z900 and the Honda CBR650R, the decision comes down to several factors such as budget, brand preference, serviceability, engine preference, etc. The Kawasaki Z900 is one of the most cost-effective inline-four naked big bikes and comes with a powerful 125PS motor. It also offers TFT instrumentation, traction control, Bluetooth connectivity, riding modes, all-LED illumination, and stunning looks. 

On the other hand, the Honda CBR650R is powered by a 649cc, liquid-cooled, inline-four engine that has been upgraded for a stronger mid-range. It now produces 87PS at 12,000rpm and 57.5Nm at 8500rpm. Furthermore, the bike features new graphics, a revised LED headlight reflector profile, and a USB Type-C port for under-seat charging. We suggest taking a test ride to get a better understanding of its performance and riding comfort.
