2022 Honda CBR650R price makes it costlier than the more powerful Z900 by over Rs 85,000; and all it has got is new graphics…!
At one end, it is good to see Honda go all guns blazing in the mid-size motorcycle segment. However, at the other, it is absolutely baffling to see them price some of their motorcycles at ridiculous levels.
We are yet to come out of the thought process behind the atrocious pricing of the CB500X and Honda has dropped another bomb. The Japanese giant has officially announced the launch of the 2022 CBR650R in India.
The CBR650R was already available as a CKD (Completely Knocked Down) and all that the new model has got is new graphics – not even colors. Yes, the motorcycle continues to be offered in the Mat Gunpowder Black Metallic color apart from Grand Prix Red. The Black color now comes with new orange highlights and the red color gets some sporty strips here and there.
But wait until you know the new price. Here it is…
2022 Honda CBR650R Price
|2022 CBR 650R||Rs 9,35,427|
The full faired mid-sizer was introduced last year at an already expensive 8.88 Lac. And this new revision has made the model costlier by a little less than Rs 48,000! This much only for some bright colored strips thrown onto the body!
After this new price hike, the new 650R is very close to getting costlier than the more powerful Kawasaki Z900 by a Lakh!
Everything else remains untouched, including the 649cc, inline-four cylinder engine that churns 87 PS of peak power at 12,000 rpm and 57.5 Nm of max torque at 8500 rpm, and the feature set.
Bookings have opened from today and the motorcycle continues to be available at BigWing Topline dealers in Gurugram, Chennai, Hyderabad, Indore, Bengaluru and Mumbai.
