2016 Honda CBR650F ABS

In a Class by Itself

Sometimes, if you want the best solution, you have to think outside the box. In fact, sometimes it’s best if you throw the whole concept of a box away. That’s what our engineers did with the CBR650F. Traditional displacement classes went 600-750-1000. But who says you had to stick to that? An extra 50 cc is going to make the CBR650F a lot more fun for a lot more riders. It lets us fatten up the powerband, but still keep the bike light and nimble.

A fun ride at a great price, the CBR650F’s inline-four engine is specifically tuned for low-to-midrange torque, delivering a powerband that’s suited for a wide range of riding styles. Weekday commuter, weekend sport riding, long trips, short hauls, solo or with a passenger—the CBR650F does it all.

So who cares for labels and pigeonholes anyway? Not the CBR650F. A great bike knows no limits. Especially not an extra 50 cc.

Standard Features

  • LCD MULTI-METER: In addition to the speedometer and digital tachometer, the CBR650F’s instrumentation also includes clock, trip meter and fuel gauge.
  • CLIP-ON HANDLEBARS: Clip-on bars are an integral part of supersport bikes and for the CBR650F, they put you in a riding position that’s both sporty and comfortable enough for longer trips.
  • 4.5-GALLON FUEL TANK: You asked; we listened. A bike as versatile as the CBR650F needs plenty of range, and the 4.5-gallon fuel tank provides just that.
  • TWIN-SPAR STEEL FRAME: A steel frame is strong, but not too rigid for the needs of the everyday rider. With a 57-inch wheelbase, the CBR650F is also quick and responsive—just what a machine in this class should be.
  • 649 CC DOHC ENGINE: Engines like this are what Honda does best. The four-cylinder design makes it smoother and faster revving than most twins, and offers ample low to midrange torque, plus plenty of power through the entire rev range.
  • SIX-SPEED TRANSMISSION: Smooth, nearly seamless shifts and more gear ratios to match the way you want to ride: those are two of the characteristics that make this Honda so much fun to ride.
  • FOUR-INTO-ONE EXHAUST: Power, style and an unmistakable growl—you get all three with the four-into-two-into-one exhaust system on the CBR650F.
  • SUPERSPORT-STYLE FRONT COWL: The CBR650F may be a terrific value, but it still offers plenty of style. Check out its CBR600RR-inspired front cowl—just enough bodywork to cut the wind blast and give it a cool look.
  • 41 MM FRONT SUSPENSION: Our 41 mm front suspension offers excellent suspension action and a comfortable ride along with precise steering and front-end feedback.
  • DUAL-DISC BRAKES / OPTIONAL ABS: Here’s an area where plenty of other bikes would scrimp, but not the CBR650F. Dual 320 mm front discs offer excellent stopping power under a wide range of operations. Honda’s ABS system is available for more confident stopping in challenging conditions.
  • REAR-DISC BRAKE: A 240 mm hydraulic disc at the rear complements the twin front discs for plenty of stopping power.


  • One year, transferable, unlimited mileage limited warranty; extended coverage available with a Honda Protection Plan.
