Honda CB650F (2017 - 2019)

The 2017 Honda CB650F is an inline-four cylinder bike that has slightly more sporty specifications compared to the 2014 model. The motorcycle feels powerful yet compact in size, so it is an ideal bike for slightly more experienced A2 licence holders.

It comes with an aggressive riding position, which will put you right up over the front of the bike. But, it is by no means an uncomfortable motorcycle to ride. In fact, the level of comfort is pretty high and you can easily ride the bike both on motorways and around town.

There are not that many 4-cyclinder motorcycles in the middleweight naked bikes category and the Honda CB650F is without a doubt one of the best options on the market.
