The CB650F, at a claimed 454 pounds wet, is almost 60 pounds heavier than Yamaha’s FZ-07 yet almost identical to Kawasaki’s Ninja 650. It’s a little bit cheaper and one cylinder richer than Yamaha’s FZ-09 but down on power in comparison. At $8,249 for the CB650F, it’s a few hundred dollars more expensive than the FZ-07 and Ninja 650, and adding the extra bodywork for the CBR650F model will bump that up to $8,749—a little on the steep side. Personally, I’d be quicker to choose the twin-cylinder FZ-07 over the CB650F, if it came down to cost per dollar for a midsize commuter—the FZ gets better mileage, weighs less, has better brakes, and can be just as fun when ridden hard. The Honda, on the other hand, does have more power and is a little more comfortable for longer-distance riding.
