I have always loved single cyclinder bikes. What I like about the CBR is the torque and the fact you can squeeze every once of power without ever feeling you are going beyond your limits. Mine has a two brothers exhaust and while I think it's a little loud, I think it really brings out the engine personality. The bike is light and maneuverable. It can do highways without being scary and can make its way through traffic very rapidly. There is a 50 mile loop route I ride every weekend. Lots of turns and elevation changes. The CBR is a blast on it! I've owned several versions of the BMW F650 and I think the CBR is more fun. The CBR is also a "simple" bike by today's standards. I just wish the original tires were better. They could use more grip especially in the rain.
