According to our sources Honda has begun with bookings for their soon to be launched CBR650F motorcycle. Though there is no official statement regarding the same but according to few Honda dealers they have commenced the CBR650F bookings at an amount of INR 50,000. Honda CBR650F was first displayed at the 2014 Auto Expo and it is expected to be launched in next few months at a price of INR 8 lakhs in the Indian market. For present CBR650F will be present in only single shade of Pearl Metalloid White (Tricolour) that was showcased at the 2014 Auto Expo.
Talking about the bike CBR650F comes equipped with 41mm front suspensions and twin par steel frame, the engine in question is a 649cc inline four cylinder that is capable of producing a maximum power of 87bhp at 11,000rpm and 63 Nm of torque at 8000rpm. This bike makes more power than both the bikes in its competition, the Kawasaki Ninja 650R and Benelli TNT 600GT. CBR650R comes equipped with 320mm dual disc brakes at the front and a 240mm single disc at the rear. Though Honda have decided to assemble the CBR650F here in India but still we don’t expect Honda to price it below 8 Lakhs (ex-showroom) and that slightly higher than what usually people pay for middle-weight segment bikes.
