2018 Honda CB650F Buyer’s Guide: Specs & Price

2018 Honda CB650F

For sport riders who liked the Honda CBR650F but wanted something naked, the 2018 Honda CB650F shows itself off in all its glory.

With the liquid-cooled inline-4 proudly on display, the Honda CB650F is a near clone of the CBR650F, sans fairing. That means you get a torquey motor that is still happy to rev up for fast canyon runs, along with high-quality handling and great suspension (even if the damping settings are fixed in place at the factory).

Big 320mm discs in the front help make up for the lack of radial mounting of the caliper or master cylinder.
