New Delhi, February 21, 2019 : Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India (HMSI) on Wednesday started official bookings for its upcoming sportsbike middle-weight model CBR650R, which will be priced below Rs 8 lakh (ex-showroom).
The model, which was revealed at the 2018 EICMA show in Milan, will replace CBR650F under Honda's sports middle-weight lineup, the company said in a statement. The new CBR650R is powered by a 650cc inline four-cylinder engine and is equipped with safety features such as dual channel ABS (anti-lock braking system). In addition, its chassis is 6kg lighter than the predecessor for faster side-to-side steering agility, the company added.
HMSI senior Vice President - Sales and Marketing Yadvinder Singh Guleria said, "After the 2019 global fun model lineup unveiled in EICMA, Honda has now opened bookings for its new middle-weight sports machine CBR650R in India too."
The CBR650R is available at Honda Wing World dealerships across 22 locations in 16 states of India and can be booked with a down payment of Rs 15,000, HMSI added.
