Jakarta - PT Astra Honda Motor (AHM) introduce 2017 year model of CB650F which get morepowerful and more features at Indonesia International Motor Show (IIMS) 2017. Through new 650cc DOHC engine, LED light, and enriched with new striping and color, Honda CB650F raises the rider’s adrenalin level further.
Honda CB650F makes more peak power become 68,4kW. This model comes with new color design and striping. It gives Honda CB650F even look tougher, with new features of headlight and taillight LED and latest Showa Dual Bending (SDBV) fork it packs a punch that’s hard to ignore.
Marketing Director AHM Thomas Wijaya says the company aim to give higher value and pride on the latest Honda CB650F. This is shown in overall bike in term of performance, feature, and design that meet naked big bike customers’ expectation.
“Naked big bike of Honda CB650F is important product in the big bike market. We want to keep continuously presence new product changes which always give pride to the rider. We believe these significant changes are more acceptable by big bike lovers, “says Thomas.
Designed by a young team of engineers harnesses the high quality lightweight form injected an exciting new jolt of energy and naked streetfighter style. The development evolution raises the adrenalin level further by present more powerful product.
Peak power of 68,4kW arrives at 11,000rpm with peak torque of 63,2Nm at 8,000rpm. The increase which kicks in from 5,000rpm is due to new intake and exhaust flow management: shorter air intake funnels feed four 32mm throttle bores from a down-flow airbox (which itself draws through larger intake ducts) and in turn the right side-swept 4-1 exhaust now employs a dual-pass internal structure (rather than triple-pass) in the muffler, reducing back pressure. It also features a larger final outlet.
With shorter gear ratios from second through to fifth, the new CB650F gets away faster than the previous design and from a 60km/h second. Slightly increased peak torque of 63,2 Nm arrives at 8,000rpm, while the engine’s tractability allows it to pull smoothly from idle at 1,500rpm in sixth gear.
CB650cc engine uses a compact internal architecture, stacked six-speed gearbox and starter/clutch layout with the cylinders canted forward 30°. The DOHC 16-valve cylinder head employs direct cam actuation; bore and stroke is set at 67mm x 46mm with compression ratio of 11.4:1.
Asymmetric piston skirts minimize bore contact and reduce friction. Ferrous spines on the outer surface of the cylinder sleeves reduce oil consumption (and friction) with improved heat transfer. A silent SV cam chain reduces frictional losses by using a Vanadium coating on its pins. Fuel consumption of 21, 7 km/l (WMTC mode)
The steel diamond frame uses twin 64mm x 30mm elliptical spars. Its rigidity balance has been specifically tuned – it’s much stiffer around the headstock and more ‘flexible’ in the spar sections – to deliver the desired handling characteristics and level of rider feedback. Rake is set at 25.5° with trail of 101mm and wheelbase of 1,450mm.
Front fork Showa Dual Bending Valve (SDBV) 41mm telescopic fork improves ride comfort and handling, delivering proportional rebound damping with firmer compression damping as the 120mm stroke is used up. The swingarm pivot plate is forged then welded together, while the gravity diecast aluminium swingarm features a curvaceous shape that arcs over the muffler on the right.
Adjustable for 7-stage spring preload the single-tube monoshock operates directly on the swingarm.
Cast aluminium six-spoke wheels wear 120/70-17 and 180/55-17 front and rear radial tyres feature L shaped easier maintenance.
The two-piston front calipers is formed 320mm wavy disc with a single-piston rear 240mm disc provide plenty of stopping power, with 2-channel ABS is fitted as standard.
It looks more compact with the suitable fuel tank dimension shroud covers and sharp nose fairing shrink-wrapped upswept tail unit. Smaller side cowls highlight the angular fuel tank and show off the engine while the stubby seat unit and cut-back front mudguard adds to the Mass Forward stance. Both the clear-lensed taillight and headlight are LED with sharper angled and a harder edge.
The riding position has been slightly forward, placing the rider closer to the front wheel. Flatter tubular handlebars give leverage and pillions get an ample seat and strap for security. The narrow middle profile helps ground reach, and seat high is 810mm.
The dash comprises twin large digital screens. On the left are the rev-counter and speedometer; on the right are a fuel gauge, clock, odometer and the warning lights. Both sides are lit by a white back light.
Dominated with a blacked-out frame, swingarm and wheels and bronzed engine covers. A compact ‘wave’ design ignition key offers improved security and reduced chance of breakage for this bike.

addition of new power, features, and new stripe design, the price remains the same. Honda CB650F on OTR (On The Road) DKI Jakarta price IDR 235.000.000.-
