About Limits...

Bikes used to be arranged around how big their engines were: 250, 500, 750 or 1000cc. Then inflation set in, and 500s became 600s, and the 750s became 800s. Unless you were racing in a special displacement grouping, it all seemed a little silly. Didn’t we all just want a great motorcycle, regardless of some arbitrary engine size?


Well, that’s what you get with the CBR650F, and why riders find is such a joy. A truly fun ride at a great price, it's both practical and fun—what Honda does like no one else. Its inline-four engine specifically tuned for low-to-midrange torque, delivering a powerband that’s suited for a wide range of riding styles. Weekday commuter, weekend sport riding, long trips, short hauls, solo or with a passenger—the CBR650F does it all.

CBR650F - built for both the young and the young at heart

Who says that practical, comfortable, everyday bikes can’t generate the adrenalin rush of their RR brethren? Case in point, the CBR650F - its high torque, in-line four-cylinder engine, tuned for strong low-end, mid-range and top-end power, provides tremendous drive off the line and out of turns. The all-new steel chassis positions the engine far forward for optimal weight distribution and is tuned to provide an excellent balance between comfort and rigidity. An aluminum swingarm with a direct mounted single-shock handles the suspension duties at the rear while a 41 mm front fork keeps the front end planted in turns. Powerful, dual 320 mm wave-style front-brake rotors, supported by a single 240 mm rear, provide track level stopping power. Two channel ABS works in harmony with the wide, high-traction sporting radial tires to help ensure strong and secure stopping in a variety of conditions.

So the CBR650F has the sporting credentials to live-up to the CBR designation, but what will catch your eye first is the unique styling. The design team for the CBR650F included a number of young engineers in their 20s who wanted to create a thoroughly modern and unique sport bike for today’s world. Since the engine, chassis, bodywork and, even, the wheels were all new, they had virtually a blank canvas to work with and what they came up with is a stunning design. From the minimalist full fairing that leaves most of the engine exposed, to the sweeping exhaust headers, to the arcing aluminum swingarm, the CBR650F is attractive from any angle.

I fear Honda may not sell many CBR650Fs at all with the looks for the replies (I don't think we ever had no interest in a model before, even am off-road scooter). LOL.

After deliberation, I voted Cool.

It's hard to fault a good, reliable, inline 4, mid sized do it all sportbike with comfortable seating. A more attractive price would have given it a bump up to Awesome for me as the CBR650F has good competition from Kawasaki's 650R.

I can't see why the CBR650F wouldn't sell, but I'd say wait to buy one used.

Your Coolness Factor of the 2015 Honda CBR650F is:

Cool (2 points) 59% [ 10 ]
Uncool (1 point) 24% [ 4 ]

Total votes: 17

Notes: While you can make a bike that looks good in person and on paper, sometimes you can't explain why it's dreadfully not popular. Maybe it's the premium price that needs to come down?


Get excited as the next TMW Cool Wall bike is now up for voting and discussion, have fun!
