If they're gonna do the big shrouds, at least tie it in with a belly pan. If not, leave em off!

Looks like the shroud is covering the big empty space between the top of the motor and the steering neck.

Especially the exhaust...........Hondas sure do look more "refined" though.

Love the RWB but pass on the gold wheels.....


I bet it weighs about the same as the 919?

I like it! If they price it well and bring it to North America the thing might sell.

Boy you guys are picky!

It looks fine to me with the slant CB400 style header tubes.

+1 the gas tank doesn't exactly go all the way forward at midlevel. Without it there'd be a big empty gap looking like its missing something....

parlez vous francais?
Looks like there might be an ABS version with more power.

"A brand new bike mount bare , medium size , with a new four-cylinder ensuring a high and the enthusiasm required torque , an excellent well balanced, and an ABS system optional chassis; a version for 25 kilowatts a limited license with ABS standard version will also be available .

The four -cylinder 649 cm3 dual overhead cam engine in mind that the team is completely new CB650F . It is designed for high torque and high reactivity at low and medium speeds , especially less than 4000 rev / min .

The development team has built a large number of technicians twenty years , chosen to produce a motorcycle targeting younger customers . They decided from the outset not to attempt to reach the peak power at maximum speed . On a bare frame , the key objectives were a strong acceleration from a standing start , a high to low and mid-range torque and response continues to accelerate to average speeds.

The project also was a strong recovery over 6000 rev / min and - to reduce operating costs - economic consumption speed limit on motorways. The aesthetics of the engine has also been treated by eliminating all external pipes . Located relative to the front of the chassis to optimize the weight distribution , the engine is actually inside the machine.

The steel frame of the two beams CB650F includes pivot plates and cast aluminum swingarm to fine tune the balancing arm rigidity . Associated with a telescopic front fork 41 mm , the rear shock is directly on the swingarm. The wheels have a new six-spoke design . The double wavy discs 320 mm caliper with three pistons provide the braking power of the front brake , on which it is possible to install a two-channel ABS option .

A version 25kW with an ABS system as standard, is available as an option for A restricted license holders .

The angular silhouette with clean lines and offensives CB650F makes visually attractive . The low center of gravity , the slenderness , the natural riding position and wide handlebars optimize machine control by the pilot. The optional white- blue - red tricolor painting inspired by the Honda Racing Corporation provides the finishing touch."

I like it and wish they bring it here but the wheels should be white.

I am hoping they do something with the FZ09 or the old FZ08 engine - A FJR800 or 900?

I like it. Must accelerate and turn quite well. The high peg, high bar thing always pushes you into the tank so I could use lower pegs. I don't corner that tight on the street anyway. I never even dragged my Honda Nighthawk 750 pegs, even slamming it over into a parking lot at the last minute. Then once you DO get really fast, you want the bars down anyway. Adjustible bars anyone?

I really like the wheels and rotors for an OEM setup. They would look nice on a 919.....
