I've actually wondered myself, then I stopped caring. I usually say 9-19, but I wouldn't call it's little sibling the 5-99. Sounds like a discount bike. 5-9-9 just sounds better. I've never heard what the official pronunciation is.

PS. I pronounce it nine one nine. My Canadian bike says CB900F on the side though. Laaaaaaaaame

I have found that most people who ask, don't know what it is or what you call it.
I always kinda of liked the Green Hornet, then they smiled.

Yeah, no Sh$#! Sherlock! That's why I'm here!

I've been eyeballing the 919 and Bandit 1250 naked for a LONG time, but
somehow ended up on a FZ6 naked. Let's say I traded torque for ABS.

Yeah, it's the 900F in EU here too.
I do believe it has the Hornet stickers too.

Your mod thread is inspiring/intimidating.

Awesome job.

It is Nine-One-Nine. It says so in the sales brochure.

I just rolled over 80,000 km on my 919 and I have no idea when the previous owner checked the valves last. When should I consider having this done?
