2022 Honda CB650R ABS: The Neo-Sport Cafe Middleweight

Honda’s 2022 lineup of neo-sport-inspired cafe racers doesn’t stop at the end of the train line: the CB1000R. For riders looking for a model that pulls similar inspiration on an aesthetic and purpose-built level, the CB650R offers a very similar package at a fraction of the displacement and price of its bigger brother.

The stress-tested and very reliable 649cc in-line four-cylinder engine brings a breath of fresh air to this segment of the market thanks to its extra cylinders. With so many manufacturers opting to build their middleweight naked motorcycle models around 2-3 cylinder engines; Honda’s solid four-cylinder engine allows for predictable and reliable power throughout the powerband making this Japanese middleweight a strong contender.

At this price point, it’s nice to see Honda include LED lighting all around in addition to the LCD instrument cluster, and it even comes complete with ABS to bring an added layer of safety to your daily commute.

The 2022 Honda CB650R ABS starts at $9,199 USD / $9,999 CAD

2022 Honda CB650R ABS Features

PERFORMANCE

649cc DOHC ENGINE

Engines like this are what Honda does best. The four-cylinder design makes it smoother and faster revving than most twins, and offers ample low- to midrange torque, plus plenty of power through the entire rev range.
4.1-GALLON FUEL TANK

A bike as versatile as the CB650R needs plenty of range, and the 4.1-gallon fuel tank provides just that.
EXHAUST SYSTEM

An exhaust system needs to accomplish four things: To quiet the engine without robbing power, to help tune engine output, to sound great, and they’re a huge style element on any bike. The CB650R’s exhaust knocks it out of the park on all counts, and sounds like only an inline four can.
FOUR-INTO-ONE EXHAUST

Power, style and an unmistakable growl—you get all three with the four-into-one exhaust system on the CB650R.
Honda SELECTABLE TORQUE CONTROL

With Honda Selectable Torque Control System (HSTC) the CB650R offers you peace of mind during aggressive riding conditions. The system adjusts engine power to optimize torque at the rear wheel, reducing rear-wheel slip. And here’s the best part: you can turn it on or turn it off with a handlebar-mounted switch.
REFINED INTAKE SYSTEM

The CB650R features a twin-duct intake design, engineered to ram cool, dense air into the airbox, increasing horsepower.
SIX-SPEED TRANSMISSION

Smooth, nearly seamless shifts and gear ratios matched to the way you want to ride: those are two of the characteristics that make this Honda so much fun to ride.
SPECIAL ENGINE TUNING

Changes to valve timing and piston shapes (compared to the previous generation CB650R) have improved engine response, especially from the idle to 8000 rpm, a big advantage in urban environments.

STYLE

NEO-SPORTS CAFÉ STYLING

This bike looks unique, because it is. The Neo-Sports Café design combines elements from pure sportbikes and sporting nakeds. Sometimes less is more, and the CB650R makes a bold styling statement wherever you ride it.
DIGITAL INSTRUMENTS

The CB650R’s LCD screen features a digital speedometer and tachometer, plus a clock, odometer, trip meter, real-time and average fuel consumption meters, and illuminated engine diagnostic indicators.
LED HEADLIGHT

The CB650R uses the same LED headlight as our CB1000R. The LED headlight is both brighter and smaller than a conventional design, and the black bezel contributes in a big way to the CB650R’s sense of style.
TRAPEZOIDAL BODY LAYOUT

It sounds like a mouthful, but it just means that the CB650R has some awesome lines, and that it just flat out looks right.
Y-SPOKE ALUMINUM WHEELS

The aluminum wheels feature “Y”-shaped spokes that help reduce unsprung weight. The light hoops have a greater influence on handling than the numbers alone suggest.

HANDLING

SHOWA® SFF-BP FRONT SUSPENSION

Great handling and precise steering demand a premium front suspension. That’s why the CB650R now features a Showa Separate Function Front Fork Big Piston unit (SFF-BP). It offers both reduced weight, superior rigidity, and excellent overall performance.

COMFORT

HANDLEBAR

A bike’s handlebar makes a huge difference in how you relate to your machine. Last year we fine-tuned the handlebar angle, and everyone agrees it’s one of our best, making tight, slow-speed turns easier.
FRAME

The twin-spar frame incorporates pivot plates, engine hangers, seat rails, and other components that all reduce weight. It’s light, strong, and provides the basis for the CB650R’s stellar handling.
NEUTRAL/SPORTING RIDING POSITION

One of the most rider-friendly aspects of the whole Neo-Sports Café design is how you sit on the CB650R. You’re ready for aggressive riding, but you’re still comfortable. You can see what’s going on around you. And your riding sessions can last for hours at a time with little fatigue.
RADIAL-MOUNT FRONT BRAKES

Featuring huge 310mm discs, the CB650R also comes with radial-mounted four-piston calipers. The result is premium sportbike stopping power that’s linear and easy to modulate.
REAR-DISC BRAKE

A 240mm hydraulic disc at the rear complements the twin front discs for plenty of stopping power.
SLIPPER CLUTCH

The assist slipper clutch lightens clutch operation by approximately 12 percent compared to previous designs, and that reduces rear-wheel hop during rapid downshifts.
