Honda CBR 650R 2021
Honda launched two bikes with very similar numbers, which are the CB 650R and the CBR 650R. A minimal difference in the identification of the model, but large in the visual and in some technical specifications.
For example, the cycling and the motorization are practically the same, that is, the same engine pouring 95 hp, but the advantage of the CBR is that it has an air intake system that allows better engine response at low and medium speeds, and with great performance in high regimes.
The automaker also changed the ‘F’ for fun, which was on the CB 650F model, with ‘R’ for racing. Strategic change is a way of showing that these lines are more sporting, borrowing the style of competition bikes, but guaranteeing safety on a common track.
