Honda CBR650F (2017 - 2018)

The 2017 version of the Honda CBR650F sport bike is not a big improvement over the previous model. It still has the basic non-adjustable suspension system and ABS. This is alright for a budget bike with a lower price tag, which the CBR650F clearly is.

As all other models from the CBR lineup, the Honda CBR650F is a reliable and easy to ride motorcycle. The only downside of this bike is the missing gear indicator.

The Honda CBR650F is a 649cc A2-friendly bike. It has a power output of 66 kW (90 bhp), which exceeds the 35 kW (47 bhp) limit needed for an A2 licence. The bike has to be restricted by at least 46.9% to become A2 licence compliant.
