Previous model Honda NX 650 Dominator

The FMX 650 is a motorcycle from Honda . The Supermoto was built from 2005 to 2007 at the Spanish Honda plant in Montesa under the model code RD 12.


The engine of the FMX 650 is a wind-cooled single-cylinder four-stroke engine of the type RFVC and was already used in this form in the Honda NX 650 Dominator . In the FMX 650, the engine equipped with four radially arranged valves with a catalytic converter and a displacement of 644 cm³ is installed. The rated output of 28 kW (38 hp) is at a speed of 5,750 rpm, and the FMX 650 reaches its maximum torque of 52 Nm at 4,500 rpm. An uncontrolled catalytic converter complies with the Euro-2 emissions standard , but this only with a loss of performance, and thus the 44 hp that the engine in the Dominator from 1988 achieved are no longer achieved. Equipped with an electric starter and a 5-speed gearbox, the FMX 650 revs up even at low to medium revs and consumes between 4 and 8 liters per 100 kilometers, depending on the driving style.


“Aside from the somewhat restrained revving, the 650 is an impressively active bike. Turn left? No problem. Slide forward, left foot out, right leg firmly to the side, aluminum handlebars close to your body - gymnastics made easy. The narrow waist and lines allow the greatest possible freedom of movement. The feeling for the front wheel is excellent thanks to the active seating position, and the Pirelli MTR 01 mesh well with the asphalt. "
