As per our sources, Honda CBR 650R will soon join the list of new Honda Superbike in Nepal. So, it is officially confirmed that Honda CBR 650R is expected to launch in Nepal. As for the exact launch date, it hasn’t yet been revealed.
Honda CBR 650R marks it as a new entry to the popular CBR series. So far, we’ve seen CBR 250R, CBR 650F, and CBR 600RR. Unfortunately, CBR 650R will replace the CBR 600RR. What will this mean?

Thoughts on the Honda CBR 650R?
Alright, there are still a lot of things yet to be confirmed. As of right now, things like the launch date, pricing, and features are anybody’s guess. So, to speak, the powertrain numbers have been taken directly from the internet. Again, there might be some changes when it finally arrives in Nepal. But again, one can’t be too sure.
“What’s the Honda CBR 650R price in Nepal?”
Let’s address this elephant in the room first. I tried to get accurate pricing from the Honda Showroom. Well, the Honda people weren’t sure about it either. There is going to be certain rules and regulations to be followed. So, the price of the Honda CBR 650R will follow on the price of the Honda CB 400SF. Hence, it will be expensive… very expensive.
