Honda CBR650F India launch takes place

Honda‘s showpiece at their 2014 Auto Expo pavilion was the Honda Activa 125, but there was an interesting bike kept close to the main stage; the Honda CBR650F. The CBR650F, like smaller cousin CBR250R, is a bike that can be ridden in different ways. It is sporty, with good performance and nifty handling to appeal to the racing fan in you. It has a good riding position and the frame and suspension are not too hard for daily riding or long distance riding. The engine has been tuned for a multitude of roles with a wide torque band to help the rider explore the limits of the bike. After launching the Livo 110cc commuter motorcycle, HMSI has now launched the Honda CBR650F in the fast growing performance bike segment of our country. The launch of this motorcycle took place at an event in New Delhi today and here, in this post, we have put together all the important details from the Honda CBR650F India launch event.

Design and Styling

(From L to R): Paint options include Candy Blue, Matte Black Metallic and Red.                                                                                                                                                                                                                     Photo Courtesy: Motorcycle.com

Styling wise, the CBR650F does not stand out from the crowd at first glance. The bike looks like any other bike of its class, with a full-fairing, a compact frontal area, a slim rear and a pronounced tank. The solid paint options also make the a bike a bit dull. look closely and design elements show up, the front fairing design is angular, bits of the in-line four-cylinder engine and the four-into-one exhaust peek out for good effect. The compactness at the front gives the bike a sporty look. The short exhaust adds a bit of style while the short but tall tail adds to the forward leaning style of the bike. An upright seating position makes the bike a breeze to drive in traffic and on long hauls. The clip-on handlebars help the rider adjust them to his/her comfort. Initially, the CBR650F will be launched in just one paint scheme – Honda’s trademark tricolor (Red, White and Blue).

The India-spec CBR650F will boast of a max. power of 87 PS and a peak torque of 63 Nm.

  1. Honda CBR650F will be a success in India only if the on-road price is not more than INR 6 lacs. If the price is something like 8 lacs (ex show) + 1.5 lacs (tax + Insu) = 9.5 lacs on road…its ridiculously over priced for a 650CC 4 cylinder bike. Whats the benefit are we getting with “make in India’ concept? Why cant Indians have imported products at lower prices? if its really gonna be 8 lacs then I would be one of those buyer’s who would back off. Actually, I have decided to buy this bike if its priced under 6lacs on-road.

  2. I have been waiting for this bike for more than an year now thinking that it would be less than 6 lacs anyway. If would have known that it would be more than 7 i would have never waited and gone for kawasaki ninja which is for 5 lacs….and even now if cbr 650 is placed for more than 6 lacs i will straight away go for ninja and everyone else who was waiting for this bike….price has to remain below 6 lacs at any case if it has to even stand a chance against kawasaki….

  3. Being listening to its launch since 2013 end…if ex-showroom would be priced under 6.5 lacs it would be a successful launch otherwise people would either go up for a ninja650 or z800…650 doesn’t makes a sense for more than 6.5 lacs…am I right GUYS??

  4. Now that Benelli has launched TNT 600i in-line four, which is one of the best middle weight sportbikes @ competitive pricing 5.15lacs ex-show, Honda CBR650F has to stay close to this pricing to survive.They cant maintain a large difference saying that Its a – Honda, Quality, ABS etc. If Honda launches 650F with an expensive price tag, I would happily pick TNT 600i without thinking twice.

  6. Bring in CKD. Tax savings is 2 lakhs.. Further 5% local product.. Price must not go beyond 6lakh.. And I am quite sure about that..

  7. Honda should consider pricing as a crucial parameter, If the pricing is below 6.5 lacs ( ex-showroom). Surely it will become the undisputed king in it’s segment. As per the fact, Crispy smooth ride, Reliable engines and non-comprising quality. As I’ve owned couple of honda bikes earlier, my advice for honda is to price it wisely and affordable enough to the reach of Indian consumers. Best of Luck!!

  8. Honda’s pricing will be a very important factor in deciding as to how it will beat the challenges of HD Street 750, Kawasaki Ninja 650 R and the other bikes in similar class. A price tag of Rs.8 Lakhs will definitely be on the higher side though, the machine should be really good, coming from Honda. Kawasaki Vulcan is also on the wings to give Honda a tough competition, as per the reports. I am waiting for the Vulcan and its pricing, being a 650 cc cruiser. If prices are to the tune of 8 Lakhs then will have to settle for NInja or the HD Street.

  9. I have been waiting for this bike for ever so long.. And finally when it is making its entry, HONDA shocks me by saying it’d be priced at 8 lakh rupees mark.. Honestly, it makes no sense to do so just coz it’s a honda badge and your refined quality Which now-a-days other manufacturers do so too.What honda needs to understand is that there are more manufacturers making thier bedut in indian superbike market with reasonably well priced products.e.x (benelli tnt 600i ). With such italian legacy and hardcore pricing why would anyone want to buy the CBR 650f. Unless you have enough money to just blow it away by getting fooled.

  10. The information that booking is opened by HMSI is wrong and they have confirmed that no such information is available with them. Please let us know the facts.

  11. I find the information that booking has opened for CBR 650 F in so many website except that of Honda. I have just now spoken to Honda Two Wheelers no 1800-103-3434 again and they have confirmed that they have no information. I think except Honda everyone is sure about this news…..!! Incredible India!!

  12. I am sure many of us are not very happy with the 8 lac price tag, I agree that the onroad price should be 6 Lac and maximum 7 Lac (for the extra BHPs). I would also request Honda to give their customers proper accessibilities to such bikes unlike Kawasaki refraining their customers for something as simple as a test drive. Have good accessibility and even if there is a little premium Honda asks for I think Bharat is up for it.

  13. 8l that means on road it will be 9.5l plus. Even if calculate the extra 5% it will around 9400$ which is around 6l + / – 10k. Then why is it priced around 8l. Huge calculation mistake I guess

  14. 8 lakhs r u joking for an touring sportbike which power is below 90bhp its unfair….8lakhs(exshowroom)+reg+insurance+rto tax goes upto 9-10lakhs its waste of money for this bike if v spend another 750000-1lakh extra v can easily import the true sports superbike yamaha yzf R6 to our place which has 128bhp nd king in its segment (600cc) or evn v can buy ninja zx6r ……cbr 650f s priced for 7lakh on road in other countries so i highly not recommend to al true bike lovers to not to buy the under powered & highly expensive honda cbr 650f…..honda is trying to making fool of us

  15. 8 lakhs r u joking for an touring sportbike which power is below 90bhp its unfair….8lakhs(exshowroom)+reg+insurance+rto tax goes upto 9-10lakhs its waste of money for this bike if v spend another 75000-1lakh extra v can easily import the true sports superbike yamaha yzf R6 to our place which has 128bhp nd king in its segment (600cc) or evn v can buy ninja zx6r ……cbr 650f s priced for 7lakh on road in other countries so i highly not recommend to al true bike lovers to not to buy the under powered & highly expensive honda cbr 650f…..honda is trying to making fool of us

  16. I agree with the earlier comments on the price tag of Rs. 8 Lakhs which is exorbitatnt by any stretch of imagination. Considering Honda pricing and their interest in Indian market, I am sure it will be worth waiting for the launch than merely work on speculations……..another few days after all……….

  17. The quoted price of 8 lakhs ex-showroom is the only thing wrong with this bike. This would translate to close to 9 lakhs plus on-road which is an absolute turn-off. For the same price you can get a z800 which has a more premium feel, amazing road presence and more power. Similarly the triumph’s make more sense than this on any given day. Benelli with its wide range of new models will also attract more buyers. In short, at this price, it will be the nail in the coffin for this bike and Honda. This bike will end up like the Inazuma or the new Karizma…

  18. Waiting for this bike but will be if and only if it cost around 6 to 6.5 lac on road.. Else N 650 or benalli 600i is the bike for me.

  19. The same bike costs 3 lakh Baht in Thailand (equals INR 5.54 Lakhs)….. All the best, Honda….. It was a pleasure waiting five years for you to launch a CBR in India….. and now this price….. Amazing!
