“Replacing the CBR650F globally and booking opens with a token of Rs 15,000”

Hard to digest but true! We’ve been offered 2 middleweight models by the brand Honda this month. The title says it all, Honda Motorcycles has proudly & officially announced the introduction of its all-new 2019 Honda CBR650R. Simply can’t wait to admire this middleweight motorcycle soon to be launched in our country. Booking for this one has commenced with a token amount of Rs 15,000 in the domestic market across their 22 exclusive Wing World dealerships. The launch has replaced CBR 650F model globally as well as in India too basically capable to compete with the sports middleweight segment.

No doubt it created a sense of huge excitement when it was showcased for the first time ever in Milan last year at the EICMA Motorcycle Show. The bookings of already started and the deliveries are likely to be set in April 2019. Considering the amount of the discontinued model CBR650F which was priced at 7.42 lakhs, the new about to launch model is expected to be priced below 8 Lakhs (confirmed by the brand). This new model comes right after the launch of the Honda CB300R.



The CBR650R steals the design from its sibling CBR1000RR Fireblade. This grand new avatar of the latest models carries an aggressive riding stance. Speaking of the instrumental console, it gets a flaunting digital LCD display and a narrow dual- LED headlamp. For those who don’t really like the black metallic look much, you’ll get a better version of the black; there are two color options to choose from; Grand Prix Red and Matte Gunpowder Black Metallic. The results of the styling end up making it sportier than ever before.
