The 650 is pretty solid, much better than anything in it's price range. I don't think it's fair to put it against an R13 or CSVR, those are more expensive and marketed as professional instruments. At this point I view the 650 as top tier intermediate, or I suppose maybe "entry level professional." The only other options/competition in that range is the buffet E12, Backun alpha/beta, and the bliss Clarinet (and in my opinion the Yamaha is arguably superior overall).

I agree with gwie that it would be an excellent option for students serious about clarinet but might not want to major it in. Or for teachers/doublers as a clarinet built to good standards that won't break the bank.
