Here's what our expert Chris Dabbs had to say:   THE ONE TO BUYHONDA HORNET 600£1499-£8995It might have been around for 15 years, but what made the Hornet 600 such a great...

620 multistrada

...with only 35mpg from a 620cc !!!!

Jeeze no thanks!

I'd have thought the BMW F650GS would have been a much better option with up to 80 mpg! ... and better reliability to boot

And the Yamaha Fazer 600 in its numerous guises, naked, half faired and fully faired, or ABS versions. Not forgetting the Kawasaki ER 6, you must be able to get one of those cheap enough by now!

Forget those choices for a start!

I would buy a late SV650s. Sort the forks for a few bob and look forward to fun and economy and you could still have £1100 left over to spend on a 2nd bike, a quad bike, a rubbish car, a holiday, a flat screen TV, a laptop, beer, gardening equipment, or (this is a bit like the generation game conveyor belt)  a selection of indoor plants to brighten your conservatory.

You get the idea.......

I've had

An old SV, a bandit and a new SV and ridden a cbf600 as a hire for a few months and the SV's were the best, hands down. I preferred the old naked one.... that sounds so bad.
