Ever since Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India showcased its CBR 650F at 2014 Auto Expo, several enthusiasts are awaiting its launch eagerly in the country.
Recently the CBR 650F was caught testing with India specific additions like saree-guard and license plate on windscreen. The production ready model was seen at Buddh International circuit.
This is Honda's very first super sport motorcycle to be offered in India as a Completely Knocked Down unit. Problem is that CBR 650F will only witness 5-8 percent localisation of parts.
Honda is aiming to price this super sport motorcycle in the INR 7,00,000 to INR 8,00,000 price bracket. This makes it much more expensive than its competitors in this segment.
CBR 650F by Honda will have to compete with the likes of Kawasaki Ninja 650 and DSK Benelli's TNT 600i motorcycles. Both of which are priced competitively for Indian market.
Here are the engine specifications of Honda CBR 650F:
- Engine: 649cc inline four cylinder, liquid cooled
- Horsepower: 85.8
- Torque: 63 Nm
- Gearbox: 6-speed
Honda is most likely to launch its CBR 650F in India during July, 2015 and deliveries would follow into the next month. Stay tuned for more updates and information regarding this super sport machine.
