Honda CBR650F (2014 - 2017)

The Honda CBR650F is a great all-around sportsbike that is capable of sport-touring. It features excellent build quality and offers very good value for money. It is one of the very few motorcycles in the category that still come with an inline four cylinder engine.

The bike is equipped with twin LCD displays that are an improvement over the last model’s single LCD unit. Other than that, you will also get a brand new type of chassis and basic ABS brakes. There is no gear indicator and the suspension is not fully adjustable, which is a slight disappointment.
