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.
