2020 Honda® CB650R ABS
Few motorcycles can claim to be exceptional at all things, but the Honda CB650R is one bike that stands out from the rest. It starts with the inline-four engine, oozing with power and begging to be revved. Then there’s the seating position, placing you more upright for long-distance comfort. And perhaps the best part is the neo-sport styling, offering a modern take on the naked sportbike with waterfall-style headers, wide handlebars and LED lighting front and back. And for 2020, the CB650R comes equipped with anti-lock brakes as standard equipment. In a cluttered class, the CB650R rises to the top in performance, functionality and all-out fun.
Features may include:
- 649cc DOHC ENGINE
Engines like this are what Honda does best. The four-cylinder design makes it smoother and faster revving than most twins, and offers ample low- to midrange torque, plus plenty of power through the entire rev range.
- 4.1-GALLON FUEL TANK
A bike as versatile as the CB650R needs plenty of range, and the 4.1-gallon fuel tank provides just that.
- NEO-SPORTS CAFÉ STYLING
This bike looks unique, because it is. The Neo Sports Café design combines elements from pure sportbikes and sporting nakeds. Sometimes less is more, and the CB650R makes a bold styling statement wherever you ride it.
- DIGITAL INSTRUMENTS
Based off our CB1000R, the CB650R’s LCD screen features a digital speedometer and tachometer, plus a clock, odometer, trip meter, real-time and average fuel consumption meters, and illuminated engine diagnostic indicators.
- 41mm FRONT SUSPENSION
The front suspension showcases some leading-edge technology. The 41mm fork is equipped with Showa’s Separate Function Fork (SFF) which offers reduced weight, superior rigidity, and excellent overall performance. The aluminum lower triple clamp completes the picture.
A bike’s handlebar makes a huge difference in how you relate to your machine. We moved the CB650R’s bar forward by 13mm and down by 8mm (compared to the previous CB650F), and changed the bend in the bar too. Plus, using a premium, tapered-section swaged bar gives you better front-end feedback.
The twin-spar frame incorporates pivot plates, engine hangers, seat rails, and other components that all reduce weight. It’s light, strong, and provides the basis for the CB650R’s stellar handling.
