Honda CBR650F India launch next year, to be manufactured locally

The motorcycle manufacturing giant Honda is moving ahead with full speed. We have heard that the company has recently introduced its CBR650F bike at the 2014 Auto Expo event. And now the news is that Honda will be launching this motorcycle in the Indian market sometime next year and the bike will not only undercut the pricing of its chief competitor, the Ninja 650R but also have a better performance on offer.


The Honda CBR650F will be powered by inline four-cylinder, liquid cooled, 649 cc 16V four-stroke DOHC engine that can produce a power output of 87 BHP and maximum torque of 63 Nm. This engine has been coupled with 6-speed gearbox. Honda claims that the CBR650F can provide fuel efficiency of 21 km per liter. The fuel tank capacity of the bike is 17.3 Liters. That shall give you a nice range of around 300 kilometres in real world driving conditions which we think is good enough for a bike of this caliber.

Honda CBR650F features electric starter. It has bridge type steel frame. The bike is 2110 mm in length, 755 mm in breadth, 1145 mm in height and weighs about 211 kg. It has a wheelbase of 1450 mm and ground clearance of 130 mm. The Honda CBR650F comes with telescopic fork suspension and hydraulic disc brake with twin piston caliper at the front and swing-arm with mono-shock Strut and disc brake with single piston caliper at its rear. Honda has incorporated digital speedometer, bar tachometer, fuel gauge, two trip meters, clock and KM-counter in the bike’s instrument panel. CBR650F comes with Honda Ignition Security System as a theft protection feature. The bike also features LED taillights.

Honda has announced that its CBR650F will be manufactured locally. At the 2014 Auto Expo, the company declared to come up with its 4th production facility that will be located in Ahmedabad. This plant will start production from 2015 and will feature yearly production capacity of about 1.2 million units. Local production of CBR650F will bring down its manufacturing costs that will enable the company to launch this bike at an aggressive price. We hope the Honda CBR650F will perform well in the market and we will be treated to some more affordable superbiking.
