Not so long ago we where told that the Honda CB650F would only be introduced in selective markets which excluded the USA. The made-in-Thailand Honda CB650F main market was the European Union where it's sold as budget Streetfighter.
We just received the confirmation that Honda will increase the production of the Honda CB650F and the CB650F will be introduced in much more countries, including the USA.
With this the Honda CB650F will become another global model that is manufactured by Honda Thailand. It also is an indication that the very popular Streetfighter style is getting more global popularity. Some motorcycle market annalists believe that the current shift in marking is a direct result of the success Yamaha has with the MT-09/FZ-09 outside the European market.
