HONDA has for a few years now used the uber-cool Wheels and Waves festival to show off its latest and greatest custom motorcycles. Sadly the plans for 2021 fell over, with Covid-19 forcing the show to cancel.

With ten custom Honda CB650R motorbikes now all dressed up with nowhere to show, Honda has taken the initiative and given the machines their own online festival to show off their wares.

The Honda Customs page is available in English, French, German, Italian, Spanish and Portuguese. More than just a device for viewing some custom metal, users can vote for their favourite bike and then have the option to download a wallpaper of the chosen machine. The winning custom gets the honour of having their creation voted as the best Honda CB650R custom in Europe.

Here’s a rundown of the bikes, for a more thorough take, head over to the custom website.

CB650R HEDICION

Builder: Motor Sport, Madrid, Spain.

Taking its inspiration from four wheels, the Hedicion is inspired by the Honda-powered Brabham Honda BT18 racing car from 1966.

CB650R AKIRA

Builder: Hakuba Motor, Santander, Spain.

The classic single-seat unit is a one-off carbon fibre creation, topped with a nubuck leather seat trimmed in red to key with the subtle ‘straight line’ silver and red paint. CBR650R clip-on handlebars bolt straight on.

CB650R CAFÉ RACER

Builder: Blanmoto Honda, Girona, Spain.

Blanmoto have gone down a ‘steam punk meets café racer’ route with their CB650R. And while its look is completely transformed, many of the parts used are from ‘mainstream’ suppliers such as Puig, PSR, Givi and Rizoma.

CB650R FOUR

Builder: Sagaz Honda, Toulouse, France.

Honda’s 24 hour endurance efforts are the races of true legend, and this CB650R has been built to celebrate the 1976 edition and the Honda RCB1000 raced by Jean-Claude Chemarin and Roger Ruiz. The red, white and blue colour scheme and Honda logos.

CB650R WHITE EDITION

Builder: 3C Motos, Anglet, France.

The 3C Motos’ CB650R White Edition was conceived by 3C Motos in Biarritz to complement their moody ‘Black Edition’ CB1000R of 2019.

CB650R BMX

Builder: Werther, Nice, France.

For a bike built to perform, a shorter final drive gear ratio (plus black/gold chain, naturally) makes for instant acceleration, with a full Akrapovič exhaust system adding to the engine’s performance.

CB650R KarbOne EDITION

Builder: AZ Moto, Rouen, France.

The bike that started it all for the modern era of motorcycling, the four-cylinder CB750 ‘K0’ stunned the world in 1969, and AZ Motos CB650R KarbOne, with its metallic gold paint, pays deep respect to its illustrious forbear.

CB650R FLAT TRACKER

Builder: ADN Motos, Cognac, France.

Flat track DNA runs through ADN Motos’ CB650R and they’re rightly proud of it. Choice parts include a remote licence plate holder with integrated brake light and indicators, black and red Kineo spoked rims and Acerbis hand guards.

CB650R FOUR Limited Edition

Builder: Espace Motos, Angers, France.

For Espace Motos, the legend of the CB750 Four lives on in the spirit of the Neo Sports Café family, led by the CB1000R and hugely popular CB650R.
