Four-cylinder sportbikes are a specialized breed. They’re the basis for the machines in the World Supersport championships. Smooth, quick-revving power, fast, effortless acceleration: once you’ve tasted all they can offer, there’s no going back.

Showa SFF-BP front suspensionGreat handling and precise steering demand premium suspension. That’s why the CB650R now features a Showa Separate Function Front Fork Big Piston unit (SFF-BP). It offers both reduced weight, superior rigidity, and excellent overall performance. Plus it offers adjustability for spring preload as well as rebound and compression damping.
ABSOur Anti-Lock Braking System can be a big help in making controlled stops in less-than-ideal conditions, like on wet pavement or other compromised surfaces. It’s a great choice whether you’re using your new bike as a commuter or just riding it for fun, since it helps you stop with added confidence. Featuring huge 310mm discs on the front, the CBR650R also comes with radial-mounted four-piston callipers. The result is premium sportbike stopping power that’s linear and easy to modulate. A 240mm hydraulic disc at the rear complements the twin front discs for plenty of stopping power.
LCD instrumentsIn addition to the usual speedometer and tachometer, the full-flat instrument panel features an LCD readout with indicators for gear position, water temperature, peak-hold display of engine RPM, upshift indicator and more.
LED lightingThe CBR650R uses an eye-catching dual-lens LED headlight that casts a powerful, scientifically tuned beam. It’s both brighter and smaller than a conventional design and contributes in a big way to the CBR650R’s sense of style. Brake lights and indicators are also LED.
649cc engineEngines 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. The 649cc, DOHC 16-valve engine of the CBR650R has been tuned to ensure a smooth, linear torque delivery that builds strongly as revs rise and sounds great in the process.
