Engine & Drivetrain
The liquid-cooled 649 cc four-cylinder engine uses a compact internal architecture with cylinders canted forward 30 degrees for a lower centre of gravity and an impressive power-to-weight ratio.
The DOHC 16-valve cylinder head with direct cam actuation and 11.6:1 compression ratio contributes to the engine’s effortless performance at low and mid rpm, allowing you to smoothly pull away from 1,500 rpm—even in sixth gear.
A revised intake and exhaust, along with new cam timing and compression ratios, provides a 5% peak power boost and smoother, stronger torque delivery through the mid-range. The engine now also revs to 12,000 rpm—an extra 1,000 rpm compared to the CB650F.
New to the CB650R, the Honda Selectable Torque Control System (HSTC) controls torque output by detecting differences in the slip ratio between front and rear wheels. When the rear tire loses traction on a slippery surface, HSTC instantly kicks in and suppresses torque by controlling fuel injection to inhibit rear tire slip. User adjustable, the system can also be turned off.
Chassis & Suspension
Upgraded for 2019 to be even lighter and to improve mass centralization, the twin-spar steel frame is engineered for sharp handling and a high level of rider feedback.
New inverted front fork and adjustable single rear shock complement the CB650R’s sporty character. The shock operates directly on the curved gravity-die-cast aluminum swingarm.
New Y-shaped five-spoke blacked-out wheels combine rigidity with reduced weight for more nimble handling and improved bump absorption.
Dual 310 mm wave discs with radial-mounted four piston calipers offer confident braking, while a 2-channel ABS provides peace of mind during sudden stops or when riding on uncertain surfaces.
With a fresh new look for 2019, the CB650R represents the naked shape of things to come. Its bold Neo Sport styling and minimal bodywork come together to deliver an aggressive, clenched-fist appearance, further accented by the crisp LED headlight, clear-lens LED taillight, and LED turn signals.
A more aggressive riding position for 2019, combined with reduced overall weight and improved mass centralization, make the CB650R an even better choice for sporty, everyday riding.
The backlit digital display tells you everything you need to know about your ride, with a speedometer, tachometer, odometer, gear indicator, fuel gauge, clock, warning lights, plus all trip details including average speed, fuel consumption rate and elapsed time.
A compact wave-design ignition key offers increased security and reduced chance of breakage.
