The model of the budget naked motorcycle Honda CB650F was first presented in 2013 at the EICMA-2013 exhibition, and went into series since 2014. It was this motorcycle that replaced the legendary Honda CB600F Hornet, which has been discontinued since 2012.
The Honda CB650F was based on the platform and engine from the new model Honda CBR650F, which is an in-line 4-cylinder liquid-cooled unit that produces 87 hp. power and 63 Nm of torque. The engine is noticeably deformed for its volume and gives maximum performance at 8000-11000 rpm. The motor is tuned for consistent traction from low to medium revs.
Of the features of the Honda CB650F, a steel diagonal frame, conventional non-adjustable suspension in the form of a telescopic fork and a monoshock (adjustable only by preload), as well as combined brakes with ABS should be distinguished.
Evaluating the technical characteristics and equipment of the Honda CB650F, the budget of the motorcycle and its focus on pilots of different levels - from beginners to experienced ones - are immediately striking. All this, coupled with a modern aggressive design, should ensure a decent level of motorcycle sales - especially since it is one of the cheapest in its class at a price.
Comparing the Honda CB650F with the latest generation Honda Hornet 600, there is clearly a desire to save as much as possible: a common base and engine with the CBR650F model; although diagonal, but still a steel frame; instead of an inverted fork, a regular one. However, this fact is quite normal - remember the first versions of the Hornet: the same derated engine, but from the Honda CBR600F3; the same steel frame; the same simple pendants. It's just that over time, Honda CB600F Hornet from a budget motorcycle turned into a full-fledged flagship model, using more and more parts from the sports version Honda CBR 600 RR. Although it was developed and positioned itself as a budget motorcycle for the city. The situation with the Honda CB650F is similar.
