Honda CBR 650F or Kawasaki Z800

Looking to upgrade from my Kawasaki Ninja 650.
Currently, I ride a 2013 Kawasaki Ninja 650 in Mumbai. I am now looking at upgrading my ride. Could you please let me know if Honda’s CBR 650F makes sense to buy here? If not, I would like to know whether the Z800 fits my requirements better?

AAA You’ve chosen well. The Kawasaki Z800 is the best bike in the class you’re looking to buy into, and will meet all your biking requirements. Honda has sadly priced the CBR 650F exorbitantly in India, so high in fact that the Z800, a larger capacity and better-equipped motorcycle costs about the same. Only someone with little information about rivals available in the market would opt for the CBR 650F at this asking price.
