    Europe gets a lot of cool bikes that we don't get here. Our societal mindset on bikes is skewed in the wrong direction.

    Put on my Ermax hugger and HRC tank pad and HRC fuel cap cover. Also removed the safety stickers from the tank and the "combined abs" stickers from front mudguard. Gave it a coat of wax and went for a spin!

    I love my Yamaha FZ8 but if Honda offered the CB600FA in the USA I would have bought it instead.

    Nice looking bike...sort of looks like the little brother to the CB1000r.
    You will like the ABS...enjoy!

    thanks guys.

    it is meant to look that way. they always had a 600 and 900 hornet in the range, then when they updated to the newer models the bigger one had its name changed to cb1000r but they still look the same.

    it is actually the exact same bike as the cbr600f. as far as i can see literally the only difference is the removal of the fairing and different bars.

    a set of arrow race headers are on their way to me! i am very excited! pity its the middle of winter and its ice city outside so im not actually riding it much lol, anyway cant wait to fit these to lose that gross cat and save a load of weight, also the sound will be unreal.
