Good handling, solid build quality and practical
Not the sexiest and tank range is a poor 120 miles

The CBR600F is the forgotten sister, slightly dumpier, slower and not quite as sexy as its sibling, the CBR600RR, but still a good, solid and very reliable.

The CBR600F is the old style CBR before Honda really decided to take on the supersport market. It has a relaxed riding position, less revvy engine and decent pillion seat and is a great day-to-day bike that really does it all. You can take the CBR on track one day then leave to go touring on it the next.

Not the most sexy, but excellent all the same.
