Honda CB650R Rally | First Look Review
We are not so sure how a 649cc inline-four motor is going to hook up in the dirt, and with the Honda CB650R tipping the scales at 447 lbs at the curb, we can think of a few better places to start building an adventure racer, but you have to appreciate what these crazy Portuguese have created. However, the bike looks the business.

Honda CB650R Rally. It’s done by Honda Wingmotor in Lisbon, Portugal.

The bodywork has been reworked of course, with the neo-cafe look making way for the more purposeful dirt bike styling. A solo seat, handguards, and fork guards complete the look. Of course, the iconic header pipes are on full display.

Fitted with a tribute to Paulo Gonçalves, who died during this year’s Dakar Rally, the bike is a rolling tribute to the Portuguese racer, who was also a long-time Honda rider.

Of course, the bike also commemorates Honda’s win at the 2020 Dakar Rally, where American Ricky Brabec rode the Honda CRF450 Rally to a commanding victory – the first for Honda, in over 30 years to win the prestigious race.



Honda Wingmotor kept the original 17” wheels, but they now wear TKC80 rubber. Up top are a set of handguards, along with a full nav tower and screen, complete with roadbook holder. The race-replica livery serves to commemorate Honda’s 2020 Dakar victory and the graphic on top of the tank is a tribute to Portuguese Honda racer Paulo Gonçalves, who lost his life in the very same rally.
