Buyer's Guide > CB650R
Colours shown may not be available in Canada.
A year after it came to Canada, the CB650F was replaced by the CB650R, an edgier version of Honda's naked bike. It's the same basic machine, but the retuned engine now makes 95 hp, up five per cent, and the frame has been trimmed to save weight. And, most noticeably, it now has a mean Blade Runneresque look, instead of generic anime-derived naked bike styling. There's also Honda's Selectable Torque Control system, an assist/slipper clutch and a revised seating position.
