Honda CBR650F and CB650F get special colours

Boon Siew Honda launches special colours for Honda CBR650F and CB650F middleweights.

Malaysian Honda bikes assemblers and distributors Boon Siew Honda Sdn Bhd introduced a special colour series for the Honda CBR650F and CB650F middleweight twins this week.

One of the famed red wing marque’s most popular models globally, the sport-bodied CBR650F and naked CB650F are now available locally in two premium colour schemes – Matte Black with Red Chassis and Matte Black with White Chassis.

According to Boon Siew Honda, the move to introduce these special and premium colourways for the popular middleweight were aimed specifically to entice fans of both models even further.

Both the Honda CBR650F and CB650F share the same 649cc in-line-four-cylinder powerplants, six-speed transmission and identical chassis frames. Here’s the technical readout of both models provided by Boon Siew Honda:

With this announcement, it seems we may need to wait just a little bit longer for the face-lifted 2017 Honda CBR650F and CB650F models that debuted during EICMA 2016 featuring full-LED headlights and lightly revised ergonomics.
