2016 Honda CBR650F Review
2016 Honda CBR650F on www.Totalmotorcycle.com
In a Class by Itself…
Sometimes, if you want the best solution, you have to think outside the box. In fact, sometimes it’s best if you throw the whole concept of a box away. That’s what our engineers did with the CBR650F. Traditional displacement classes went 600-750-1000. But who says you had to stick to that? An extra 50cc is going to make the CBR650F a lot more fun for a lot more riders. It lets us fatten up the powerband, but still keep the bike light and nimble.
A fun?ride at a great price, the CBR650F’s inline-four engine is 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.
So who cares for labels and pigeonholes anyway? Not the CBR650F. A great bike knows no limits. Especially not an extra 50cc.
A Little Bit Extra, for No Extra Cost
This is a machine that offers an incredibly high fun factor while keeping real-world budgets in mind. Its ergonomics and performance will keep you excited and its price and features will keep your wallet.
Great Bikes Start with Great Engines
Honda pioneered the modern inline-four layout and we’ve never looked back. With smooth running and offering terrific performance, the CBR650F’s powerplant is one of our best.
The Fundamentals Count
Rock-solid handling starts with a rock-solid chassis. The CBR650F’s frame is strong for sharp, responsive handling, but not too stiff for casual, everyday riding.
The CBR650F offers a digital LCD instrument package. Everything is clearly visible, night or day, and includes all the info you need for longer trips or cross-town commutes.

The Biggest Difference of All: Honda Quality
The CBR650F does what Hondas have always done best: offer performance, innovation and quality; and deliver it at a value point that’s second to none. Add to that the CBR650F’s wide capabilities—sportbike, commuter, weekend fun machine—and you can see that it’s like having two or three machines for the price of one. Best of all, nobody else, at any price, can deliver the build quality and long-term reliability that’s made Honda famous.
2016 Honda CBR650F www.Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits
Dual-Disc Brakes/Optional ABS
Here’s an area where plenty of other bikes would scrimp, but not the CBR650F. Dual 320mm front discs offer excellent stopping power under a wide range of operations. Honda’s ABS system is available for more confident stopping in challenging conditions.
41mm Front Suspension
Our 41mm front suspension offers excellent suspension action and a comfortable ride along with precise steering and front-end feedback.
In addition to the speedometer and digital tachometer, the CBR650F’s instrumentation also includes clock, trip meter and fuel gauge.
Supersport-Style Front Cowl
The CBR650F may be a terrific value, but it still offers plenty of style. Check out its CBR600RR-inspired front cowl—just enough bodywork to cut the wind blast and give it a cool look.
Power, style and an unmistakable growl—you get all three with the four-into-two-into-one exhaust system on the CBR650F.
Smooth, nearly seamless shifts and more gear ratios to match the way you want to ride: those are two of the characteristics that make this Honda so much fun to ride.
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.
Twin-Spar Steel Frame
A steel frame is strong, but not too rigid for the needs of the everyday rider. With a 57-inch wheelbase, the CBR650F is also quick and responsive—just what a machine in this class should be.
4.5-Gallon Fuel Tank
You asked; we listened. A bike as versatile as the CBR650F needs plenty of range, and the 4.5-gallon fuel tank provides just that.
A 240mm hydraulic disc at the rear complements the twin front discs for plenty of stopping power.
