It was another fantastic year in Milan, with big news happening across the Lings group among all our brands. First up, we bring you the release on the all new 5 new Honda models! Let’s take a quick look through what you can expect to see in our showrooms for 2019:


CB650R


With a variety of competition this year for retro classic bikes, Honda now brings its unique ‘Neo Sports Café’ look to the middleweight arena. The in-line four-cylinder engine is proudly displayed on the bike, leaving the signature round headlight and famously prominent fuel tank underline the ‘Neo Sports Café’ family feel.

CBR650R

Introducing to the sports middleweight class is the all new, long awaited CBR650R!

Drawing closely on the CBR1000RR Fireblade, remains is its sharp, aggressive body work and famous extended side fairings. Lighter than it’s predecessor (CBR650F) with a sportier riding position thanks to handlebars repositioned and footpegs altered for an enhanced experience. Super-short rear section and narrow dual LED headlights are featured on this machine too.

Its in-line four-cylinder engine revs 1,000rpm higher, producing 5% more top end power with peak output of 70kW arriving at 12,000rpm. 35kW conversions will be available for both the CB650R and CBR650R. All we could have wished for!


CB500X/CB500F


A2 licence-friendly CB500F, CBR500R and CB500X are all ready for 2019!
