2011 Honda CBR600F to cost just £7055!

In one of the most refreshing and exciting bits of new bike pricing news for ages, Honda UK has just revealed that its imminent CBR600F will cost a seemingly very reasonable £7055. That makes the new sports all-rounder over £1500 less than Honda’s own CBR600RR supersports. The CBR250R, meanwhile, is set to cost £3688 (£500 less than its closest rival, Kawasaki’s Ninja...

A First Big"n" Maybe

Its not dirt cheap but its not unreachable for many people which will make it a great first big bike for many. It looks better than you average stock 600 entry bikes and yes its a hornet in a skirt but is the hornet a terrible bike! Its more than powerful enough for you average road rider, granted I wont be chopping my GSXR in for one but if I was after my first decent big bike I would take a serious look at it. Lets not forget the state of the market so any bike which helps get more bikers on the road is a good thing in my book.

Doh!

I was looking forward to the introduction of this bike but it has turned out to be a big wet let down.

It needs a mainstand, grabrail ( useful not only for pillions but for strapping luggage to ) and a hugger as standard. This bike has zero space under the seat for storage and the engine has practically zero torque.

The predecessor was a better bike in every respect. Shame on you Honda you have truly lost the plot!!

Oh Dear

I thought this bike would be for the ordinary rider.  That price is not very reasonable considering the market.  A grand over I think.  Sorry, but as  usual the journalists are out of touch.  Does not seem too user friendly either.  Nice looking though. Personally I will stick with low milage second hand low tech bikes that are far better suited to every day use and are affordable and easy to maintain.

Torque

64Nm = 47Ft/Lbs

75kw = 100bhp

 

That's HARDLY zero torque now, is it?? A 2009 GSXR 600 only produces approx 45Ft/Lbs torque

So it's more expensive than the old one was in 2007, even adjusted for inflation, despite having a lower specification.

Looks very nice in black

.. but I wouldn't go for the white/blue white/red colours myself, yuck.

There's not much wrong with the Hornet derived engine, but that exhaust is not my cup of tea.

I would think the aftermarket boys would do good business selling replacement better looking pipes unless they muck the styling up by going down the naff looking serpentine route.

Suspension should suit most riders I guess, but may need a bit of sorting for the more sporty owners.

The fairing has lost the air scoops of the old 600F and looks the better for it, to my eye that is.
