The Middle-Weight Neo Sports Cafe
Honda’s dedication to its Neo Sports Cafe like of motorcycles is something you should definitely take note of. The new 2019 CB650R recently got its price of $8,899, which seems very reasonable to me. The bike looks great with a modern, naked bike appeal.
The bike gets a 649cc liquid-cooled in-line four-cylinder engine. It’s mated to a six-speed transmission and supposed to produce five percent more horsepower than the cb650f, according to RideApart.
The bike has a diamond steel frame, a Showa inverted front fork, and an aluminum diecast swingarm with a seven-stage adjustable rear shock.
The riding position is upright but more aggressive than other Neo Sports Cafes from the company. Overall, the bike looks more aggressive and should appeal to a wide variety of riders. The slipper clutch makes shifting smoothly easy, and the ABS version of the CB650R comes with torque control.
The CB650R should be a heck of a nice middle-weight bike. It’s a sporty choice for someone who wants a naked street bike with plenty of style, what I expect to be good power, and excellent dynamics on the road. Its 4.1-gallon gas tank means you’ll be able to ride for quite some time without filing up, too.
While the CB650R certainly isn’t some game-changing machine, it’s one I like and am looking forward to learning more about. It appears to be a very well-rounded street bike, and I really like what Honda is doing with its Neo Sports Cafe bikes.
