The 2017 Honda CBR650F, which was unveiled at the 2016 EICMA motorcycle show, will reportedly arrive on the Indian shores by the end of June 2017. In fact, to clear the stock of the BS-III compliant models, Honda had offered the outgoing CBR650F at heavy discounts of up to INR 1 lakh. The new CBR650F packs more power and torque. For 2017, power has been increased to 90hp @ 11,000 rpm, up by 4hp over the previous version while the torque is up, marginally, at 64Nm@8000 rpm.
Honda has also reworked and shortened the gear ratios, which is aimed to deliver harder acceleration through the mid-range. Honda also claims to have induced a new raucous growl to the engine, which emanates from down low and grows to a fast-spinning howl as revs rise.
The 2017 model also features a Showa Dual Bending Valve front fork and revised Nissin front brake calipers. The fairing has been restyled too.The headlight and taillight are now LED. The 2017 CBR650F is expected to carry a price tag of INR 7.6 lakh. Internationally, the motorcycle is available in the following colour options:
- Millenium Red
- Pearl Metalloid White
- Matt Gunpowder Black Metallic
