Slots sorta in between my old 650R and my current FZ6.

4.5 gal tank, 461lbs wet, 86hp @ 11k RPM (not super high). Bet it is a nice ride.




9k USD seems a little steep when the FZ-09 is $8k, but a fairing and ABS are sorta worthwhile...

Awesome! This is just what Honda needs. Now I need to rethink my next bike. With this one in the mix it's going to be a tougher decision.

I'm taking the piss on the other thread, but this is a very good bike.

Here's an enthusiastic (NSFW) vid of a UK rider who bought one after this test ride.

To think that was the price of a CB600RR in 2003. Freaking inflation...

Nope. The bike based on the Hornet was the CBR600F (not 650).

The forks give it away. The CBR F based on the Hornet is essentially a faired Hornet, so USD forks. This 650 is a different bike.

Nice bike. Now if Honda would just drop the CBR600RR and replace it with this, they would have a real world sport bike instead of a roadracer with lights. They could still sell the RRRR as a non street legal roadracer. The Hornet is the same as the 599.

Dear lord, give it a rest.

You're in the US, land of limited options.

The 600RR (sport bike) here is accompanied by the 600F (real world sport bike), which is a faired Hornet, which hasn't been the same as the 599 since 2007.

And the CBR600RR is probably one of the best real world sport bikes out there anyway.

So...shush.

I have no clue when i can swing a trip to the UK mate, money's kinda tight.

As for you coming to Cyprus...you want the Tiger or the Daytona?

Doing ok mate...going through some stuff but such is life, eh?

And to keep this on point...you owe me brekkie. CBR600F aluminum frame, CBR650F steel frame. Different instrument cluster, different forks, different exhaust even.
