For 2021, the CBR650R receives a host of upgrades including:
• New Showa Separate Function Big Piston (SFF-BP) USD forks (CB/CBR);
• New rear mudguard/number plate mount (CB/CBR);
• Handlebar angle increased for easier low-speed maneuvering (CB).
In the process of its transformation, the CBR650R has become a rare breed: a sport bike that provides similar pleasure, enjoyment and adrenaline to an RR machine, yet with enough practicality to make it a viable option as day-to-day transport in addition to weekend fun.
