The international-spec Honda CBR650R gets a 649 cc in-line four motor which is liquid-cooled and pumps out 94 bhp at 12,000 rpm and delivers a peak torque of 64 Nm at 8,500 rpm. But the India-spec model will have a slightly detuned engine which pumps out 87 bhp at 11,500 rpm and 60.1 Nm at 8,000 rpm, possibly to allow the bike run on regular fuel. Then engine will be paired to a 6-speed manual gearbox and the good news is that a slipper clutch comes as standard fitment.

Design and Styling

As we said earlier, the CBR650R replaces the CBR650F which means the 'R' gets sportier styling thanks to new fairings, sharper lines and a sleek rear section.
