The CBR650F has a 41mm Dual Bending Valve type fork that provides excellent control. Incorporating a free valve structure that progressively increases the amount of damping according to the road conditions – there is no limit to how much the compression damping can be reinforced. This simple, innovative technology – a world first – delivers superior performance levels that are equivalent to cartridge type suspension units, but in a lighter package.
Underneath the seat is housed a single-tube, monoshock suspension unit with 7-stage spring preload adjustment. It works directly on the neatly curved, gravity die-cast – for stability and strength – aluminium swingarm.
The CBR500R packs our reliable inline-twin 500cc engine – but combines aggressive body styling and enhanced tuning to deliver an extra rush of racing performance. And what's more, it's available with just an A2 licence.
