Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India Pvt. Ltd. (HMSI) has introduced the BS6 compliant CBR650R in India. The updated iteration of the bike is being sold exclusively through Honda BigWing TopLine dealerships. The bike is still being brought to India via the completely knocked down (CKD) route and has seen an increase in price. It is being sold at Rs 8.8 lakh (ex-showroom Gurugram) which is roughly 1 lakh more than the price of the older model. While it gets the same 650cc four-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine, power and torque figures have seen a slight drop. It now makes 85.8hp and 57.5Nm of torque compared to 88hp and 60.1Nm on the old model. As expected of a bike in this category, it gets a 6-speed gearbox with a slip and assist clutch. The bike sits on a twin-tube frame which is also found in the neo sports cafe-inspired CB650R. An LCD instrument cluster has been used to display all relevant information related to the bike like speed, distance covered, gear position, dual trip meters, average fuel consumption, water temperature, gear shift indicator and more.
