Honda CB650R Neo Sports Café in the Japanese roadster family is located just in the middle between the liter flagship and the compact device for beginners. We found out whether the designers had to compromise when creating this motorcycle.
The Honda CB1000R Neo Sports Café made its debut in Russia a year ago, and the motorcycle, which appeared in our magazine almost earlier than at dealers, was warmly received. Therefore, it is not surprising that now Honda is launching on the Russian market two of its “brothers” in the neoclassical family: the compact CB300R and the medium-sized CB650R. The latter as the most interesting representative of the class is now on our test.

Buying my first sports bike some five years ago, I could not imagine that I would play in the World Superbike World Championships. Moreover, I will become a pilot of the first Russian professional team.
At first I watched the races in the MotoGP and WSBK classes on TV, I really liked the beautiful bright motorcycles, and the stands clogged with public, and adrenaline.

The history of the use of motorcycles by police has more than a hundred years. The first police motorcycle was purchased for the needs of the New York Police Department back in 1907, and two-wheeled vehicles began to be used in California since 1911 as the official motorcycle patrol.
