2017 Honda CB650F

HONDA presented an updated version of the CB650F at its press conference at Eicma in Milan.

For 2017 the CB650F has received a small increase in power, up to 89.8hp from a new free-breathing exhaust and intake management including shorter intake funnels and larger intake ducts.

The CB650F’s gear ratios have also been shortened to provide harder midrange acceleration.

The Showa dual bending valve fork with firmer damping is also new and the Nissin brakes (two-piston front calipers with 320mm discs and single-piston rear with 240mm disc) have also been revised.

The CB650F’s styling tweaks comes from its new smaller side cowls and the riding position has been moved slightly forward to place the rider closer to the front wheel.

It will be available in three colour options – ‘Millennium Red’, ‘Matt Gunpowder Black Metallic’ and ‘Pearl Spencer Blue’.


...pipes. Fugly headlight setup and those scoops/whatsits either side of the tank ruins it for me tho. Just my opinion, of course, there must be riders out there who like this kind of thing. Maybe they should offer both transformer and real motorcycle front headlight without the scoop things setups. Everybody wins and they'd probably sell more bikes. Just trying to make a constructive comment...

Looks nice enough to me. Pretty much the same as all the others, er6,fz8 etc etc
An unoffensive 1 size fits all kind of bike albeit slight more powerful
