2024 Honda CB650R and CBR650R Key Updates

Introduction of the E-Clutch

The new Honda E-Clutch that debuted last month is a notable enhancement incorporated into the CB650R and CBR650R models. 

This automatic clutch disengages the transmission when the bike stops and allows quick-shifter-style clutchless shifting.

It’s an electronically controlled system, differentiating it from a centrifugal clutch, which is mechanically operated based on engine speed. 

It’s also distinct from a dual-clutch transmission (DCT) as it involves manual shifting with a single clutch in the E-Clutch system.

Honda promotes the E-Clutch for the convenience of stopping and starting without using the clutch lever and for smoother and faster shifting than a traditional manual clutch. 

The E-Clutch partially disengages the clutch during clutchless shifts, which Honda describes as “ultra-fast”.

The system is adjustable and can be turned off for a fully manual experience. A new five-inch TFT screen replaces the older LCD dash on both bikes, assisting with adjusting the E-Clutch. 

This screen can also pair with a smartphone via the Honda RoadSync app and Bluetooth.

Design and Styling

The 2024 CB650R features updated Neo Sports Café styling. This includes a more aggressive slanted LED headlight, new radiator shrouds, a more angular tail section plastic, and a new tail light.

The CBR650R has also changed, with reworked dual LED headlights and a completely new front full fairing. The tail section has been revised to complement these updates.

Colour and Visual Updates

The CB650R will be available exclusively in the new Matt Gunpowder Black Metallic colour, embracing a “total black” look similar to the Black Edition of its sibling, the CB1000R.

The design is enhanced with black-painted components like the cam cover, engine cases, and fork stanchions.

The CBR650R, the other hand, will be offered in Grand Prix Red and Matt Gunpowder Black Metallic colours. Both colours feature new black engine cases, cam covers, and updated graphics.
