It's my understanding that the larger displacement Honda's currently being produced in India, such as the CBR650F*, are just for the Indian market, and not for export outside the country. I recently read an article by an Indian motoblogger talking about the CRF1000L Africa Twin, which is also being built in India for their 'home' market. The article also implied that the completed parts & components for the CRF1000L were going to be shipped from Japan to India for assembly there.
* Honda India is said to produce only 2 CBR650F's per day, which is hardly a number that would provide enough bikes for export to other markets.
