In terms of design, the motorcycle features a CBR1000RR inspired styling that comprises a twin-pod headlight, a transparent windscreen, a full fairing, split-style saddle, and a compact exhaust cannister. While the styling is similar to the 2020 model, the headlight on the 2021 Honda CBR650R includes a sharp new reflector profile. The latest iteration of the middleweight motorcycle also gets new side panels, steel rear mudguard/number plate mount clip-on handlebars, and rear set foot pegs.
The feature list on the CBR650R BS6 remain similar to the 2020 model, and the middleweight motorcycle continues to pack all-LED lighting, a digital LCD instrument cluster, and an assist and slipper clutch. The safety net on the motorcycle includes dual-channel ABS, Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC), Honda Ignition Security System (HISS), and Emergency Stop Signal (ESS) technology.
The 2021 model also benefits from Showa Separate Function-Big Piston (SSF-BP) upside-down front forks. The suspension duties at the rear are performed by a rear mono-shock. The braking setup includes twin discs at the front and a single rotor at the back.
Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India will offer the CBR650R BS6 in two colours – Grand Prix Red and Matte Gunpowder Black Metallic.
