Serdang, 11th April 2019 – The All-New CBR650R and All New CB650R made their debut in Malaysia by Boon Siew Honda Sdn. Bhd. at the Malaysia Autoshow 2019. Fans of the Honda are welcome to catch the new models up close and personal at Honda Motorcycle booth from 11th April 2019 to 14th April 2019 at MAEPS, Serdang.
At the launch ceremony, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Boon Siew Honda Sdn. Bhd, Mr Keiichi Yasuda said, “In 2018, Boon Siew Honda had successfully launched a total of 7 units of high performance big bikes in Malaysia and we are happy to have received an overwhelming response from the market. And, we shall also look into the middleweight segment demand from the market as well. Therefore, today we launch the All New CBR650R & All New CB650R.”
All New Honda CBR650R
The All New CBR650R was inspired by the CBR1000RR Fireblade with its sharp, aggressive lines and extended side fairings, plus super-short rear section and narrow dual LED headlights. The All New CBR650R is 6kg lighter than the CBR650F (which it replaces) with a sportier riding position thanks to handlebars repositioned 30mm forward, and footpegs moved both rearward and higher.
Its classically-Honda in-line four-cylinder engine revs 1,000rpm higher, producing 5% more top end power with peak output of 70kW arriving at 12,000rpm ensuring that – along with the sculpted looks and honed chassis – the new machine’s new ‘R’ designation is well deserved.
The All New CBR650R comes with advanced specifications: adjustable 41mm SHOWA Separate Fork Function (SFF), Upside-down forks, radial-mount four-piston front brake calipers, Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) and assist/slipper clutch.
In addition, the CBR650R is equipped with other practical features such as full LED lighting and new LCD instruments display, which now includes a Gear Position and Shift Up Indicator, as well as emergency stop signal for safety purpose.

Having introduced the CB1000R and CB250R of naked models for 2018, Boon Siew Honda now brings its unique ‘Neo Sports Café’ look to the middleweight arena. The styling ‘language’ is modern and minimalist, and infused with inspirations from café racer and a super-compact “trapezoid’ form to eye-catching effect. The in-line four-cylinder engine is fully on display, and the signature round headlight and sculpted fuel tank underline the ‘Neo Sports Café’ family feel.
The All New CB650R comes with the same specification with All New CBR650R. For the 649cc engine, a revised intake and exhaust, plus new cam timing and compression ratios bring a 5% peak power boost and smoother, stronger torque delivery through the mid-range.
The All New CB650R also comes with advanced specifications: adjustable 41mm SHOWA Separate Fork Function (SFF), Upside-down forks, radial-mount four-piston front brake calipers, Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) and assist/slipper clutch. The result is a desirable naked middleweight with a unique combination of looks, performance and top-line specifications.
