Honda’s All New 2018 CB650F to Be Unveiled In August
Honda is rolling out its all new, full-of-capability sport bike in August. It comes with various features such as DOHC inline-four, front discs integrated with Nissin calipers and others. Its relaxed rake angle and wheelbase doesn’t make it too aggressive. The shock installed at the rear comes with adjustable mechanism through spring-preload. The wheel is wrapped with Dunlop Sportsmax D222.
Lee Edmunds, American Honda’s Manager of Motorcycle Marketing Communications said, “We are delighted to present a tough and rigid-looking as well as high performance CB650F to the customers in America”.
He also stated that the four-cylinder engine is a powerful performer and the vehicle proficiently highlights the inclusive listing of naked sport bikes that is installed precisely in between CB500F and CB1000R.
Dealers claim that the bike is expected to hit the showrooms by August. The upcoming 2018 Honda CB650F will be available in ABS version as well as in standard version.
