HMSI today launched the 2019 CBR650R in India today at Rs.7.70 lacs via its Honda BigWing vertical that was established just a week ago. All a part of the bigger strategy, Honda motors created the BigWing vertical to specifically offer premium products and experiences in India, understanding the nerve of the market.
The new CBR was first revealed at 2018 EICMA Show in Milan, CBR650R replaces CBR650F under Honda’s sports middleweight line up. Drawn directly from Fireblade Super Sports style – and adding something extra all its own – the 2019 CBR650R indicates a potent shot of sporty ability designed to be explored and enjoyed on the street. The CBR650R is available in 2 vibrant colours – Grand Prix Red & Gunpowder Black Metallic. The CBR650R will be available at 22 WingWorld and one exclusive Honda BigWing dealership mentioned below at the end of this article.
So, Whats so special about the New CBR650R?
New Heart: The new CBR650R now comes equipped with an inline-4 16-valve liquid cooled engine, promising ultimate refinement and performance delivering 88.4PS of power and 60Nm of Torque.
Total Control: From rapid downshifting to smoothly controlled corner entry, the Assist/Slipper Clutch allows you to confidently experience the thrills of the CBR650R while Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) maintains rear wheel traction and can be switched off should the rider choose to.
Sharper Chassis: As a high-revving sports machine lives in the turns, the CBR650R’s chassis is 6kg lighter than its predecessor for faster side-to-side steering agility. The new, adjustable 41 mm Showa Separate Fork Function (SFF) USD forks offer superior suspension response.
Enhanced Braking: Always Ready to race, the CBR650R also allows easy pauses with enhanced braking. The dual radial-mount calipers match a single-piston rear caliper for improved balance. The dual channel ABS maintains smooth control in wet or dry conditions
Roaring Wild: The 4 exhaust downpipes sweep together around the front of the engine, and the specially designed muffler delivers an electrifying roar, giving the rider a unique symphony flagging off every ride!
Fireblade DNA Bleeding Passion: Taking cues directly from the Fireblade, CBR650R features new styling with its sharp, aggressive lines and extended side fairings plus super-short rear section. Modern full LED lighting with a narrow dual headlamp akin to the Fireblade and a digital LCD display enhance its bold looks. The view forward is pure sports; the handlebars clip-on below the top yoke and the instruments feature a Gear Position and Shift Up indicator.
As Honda takes the first step ahead into offering premium experiences to motorcycling enthusiasts in India, Its interesting to see how soon other OEMs also follow Honda. Its nothing really new in India I guess, Maruti had to get a NEXA, Honda had to get a BigWing, what next??
