In 2021 March-end, just before the new financial year started in April, Honda livened up the middleweight segment with the launch of not just one but two motorcycles: the Honda CB650R and the Honda CBR650R. The two bikes look smashing but command a pretty hefty premium despite coming in via the Completely Knocked Down (CKD) route.

Review: Likes and Dislikes:
While the Honda CB650R scores well in terms of looks, it feels like a let-down when it comes to riding dynamics. Moreover, it’s way too expensive for what it offers, and at best feels like a large-displacement commuter bike. There are several more affordable options in the market which offer a lot more for a lot less.
