Senior Road Tester Michael Neeves has just ridden the new Honda CBF600 at its world launch in Spain, this is what he’s had to say:
“This new rider friendly bike has been completely revamped with new styling, an aluminium frame and a retuned engine out of the current Honda CBR600RR.
“It’s a very good bike and does everything it sets out to do and would make the perfect commuter or first time big bike but it is uninspiring to look at and to ride.
“You’d be far better off with a bike like the Kawasaki ER-6 or Suzuki SV650, which are both cheaper too.”
