OK so it isn't a CBR650F, but the new 2019 CBR650R!
Just picked it up yesterday, along with a 2019 CB300R.
Currently stock, with now 34km on the clock...500km to run it in, should have that sorted on the weekend...unfortunately it has been hammering with rain this week, so I still ride it to work, but I don't need a long mountain ride in the wet just yet.
There are no real plans for it at this time, just a commuter for the work weeks.
I have the Project954 for my weekend fun when it is complete. So that is where all of my money will be going for the near future.
I am thinking though that I will be putting a new set of pipes, a PCV to match, and maybe just some nice lightweight parts to compliment the looks. I was going to buy a new Akra set for it along with the bike, but I am not a fan of the styling they have gone with unfortunately.
I will also be derestricting the bike when I am on my unrestricted licence in November. The AU version only comes in the 35kW LAMS-Approved version.
Apparently it is an hour at Honda to get it back to 70kW.
