The headlamp unit also features a rectangular bar inside it with the Honda badge inscribed on it. Right above the headlamp is the digital instrument cluster. It is an LCD unit that displays the tachometer, odometer, speedometer, trip meters, distance-to-empty, etc.

Also adding character to the front end is the upside-down fork finished in a shade of gold. The fuel tank is probably the best design element on the Honda CB650R. It is muscular and has mesmerising creases and lines. The cowling only makes it look better.

At the rear is a simple setup with an LED tail lamp and LED indicators. The completely exposed engine too plays a major role in giving the motorcycle muscular looks. The entire exhaust system can be called a piece of art. It has four downpipes, one from each of the four cylinders that conjoin only at the underbelly exhaust outlet.

The Honda CB650R might launch around the same time as the KTM 790 Duke, which is one of the most-awaited motorcycles. Honda Enthusiasts will definitely go for the four-cylinder CB650R. But will Honda get the pricing right to launch it in India successfully?

The Honda CB650R was launched in the UK earlier this year at Rs 6.07 lakh (6,999 Pounds) on-road. This price is brilliant, given that it is on-road pricing. We sure do hope Honda manages to bring in this street naked at this price.
