2018 Honda CBR650F
After a year off, the Honda CBR650F returns for 2018 with a few updates. There are three big changes.
The 2018 Honda CBR650F gets a new Showa Dual Bending Valve 41mm fork, the motor has revised intake funnels and exhaust, and the gear ratios have been altered to improve acceleration.
Additionally, the Nissin brake calipers have been updated to save weight, with ABS being available as an option. If you get caught out at night, you’ll appreciate the new LED headlight.
Plus, when it comes time to check the air pressure, Honda has given the CBR650F L-angle valve stems to make the job easier. What remains is the friendly, semi-upright midsize sport bike that has easy handling that nicely exploits the inline-4 motor.
