Leading the way

The clear-lensed LED headlight will make sure you can see well ahead on the darkest roads and city streets. The rear taillight, housed in the sleek and sporty tail section, is also LED and improves visibility with a bright and very noticeable stoplight.

Information in a flash

Just a quick look down is all you need. This simple, twin digital screen, with a white back light, means you won’t miss a thing: rev-counter, speedometer, fuel gauge, clock, odometer and warning lights are all clearly displayed.

Controlled stopping power

The CBR650F has revised two-piston Nissin front calipers that squeeze 320mm wavy discs. With two-channel ABS as standard, they provide excellent braking response, adding confidence in all conditions. A single-piston rear 240mm disc is at the rear.

Shaped to ride

The seat has been created with a narrow middle section, this is not only good for rider movement, but helps ground reach when you’re on and off the pegs in traffic. For comfort, it’s been designed with rubber mounts underneath to minimise any vibration.

An engine that breathes

Clothed in super sport fairing – sharing a striking similarity with the 2017 Fireblade – that’s been created to include air channels that run from the front straight into the interior air box and intake duct for better performance.

Primed for action

Feel and hear the power from one corner to another – The CBR650F’s engine develops 67kW @ 11,000rpm and 3kW more than the previous model, it’s an increase you can really feel above 5000 rpm. This is down to a new intake and completely redesigned, 4 into 1 exhaust system. Together with a dual-pass muffler to reduce back-pressure, it delivers a raucous growl when you wind on the throttle. Drive it out of a corner and accelerate through the stacked six-speed gearbox and you get hard acceleration with the short gear ratios – more noticeable in the bike’s mid-range.

Sharp, sure and confident – The CBR650F is built around a steel diamond frame, which incorporates twin 64mm x 30mm elliptical spars. It provides you with excellent rigidity and balance that’s specifically tuned to deliver real-world handling for the road. A rake of 25.5° with trail of 101mm and wheelbase of 1,450mm gives a good combination of straight line stability with light and exciting turning ability.

Complete control

Pin-point and precise suspension means sharper handling

Front fork

The CBR650F has a 41mm Dual Bending Valve type fork that provides excellent control. Incorporating a free valve structure that progressively increases the amount of damping according to the road conditions – there is no limit to how much the compression damping can be reinforced. This simple, innovative technology – a world first – delivers superior performance levels that are equivalent to cartridge type suspension units, but in a lighter package.

Rear shock

Underneath the seat is housed a single-tube, monoshock suspension unit with 7-stage spring preload adjustment. It works directly on the neatly curved, gravity die-cast – for stability and strength – aluminium swingarm.
