Honda patents CBR650R, CB1000 Hornet in India

Honda has also filed design patents for the CB500 Hornet and CBR500R.

Honda has filed design patents for three middleweight bikes and a litre-class model in India. These include the CB500 Hornet, CBR500R, CBR650R and CB1000 Hornet.

The CB500 Hornet is a naked roadster, while the CBR500R is a fully-faired sports bike. Both models share the same 471cc parallel-twin engine that powers the NX500 touring bike, which is already on sale.

The Honda CBR650R is also a fully-faired middleweight sports bike. It has been updated for the 2024 model year. It uses Honda’s E-clutch technology, which is also available on the Africa Twin.

The litre-class bike in question is the CB1000 Hornet. It is the biggest naked superbike in the brand’s line-up. It is powered by the same engine as the CBR1000RR Fireblade.
