Honda CBF600 review

The Honda CBF600 is undoubtedly a supremely competent motorcycle! Bulky and heavy for a 600cc motorcycle, the Honda CBF600 lacks any real "go”, despite being well designed and built. It’s a good, safe choice for a new biker but, for those with more experience, it’s unlikely to satiate your need for a rush. Once you’ve mastered the basics, the Honda CBF600 is unlikely to inspire you with passion. The motorcycle is comfortable enough with it’s upright, "in the bike” seating position. At lower speeds you can really feel the weight of the Honda CBF600 whilst on the move. The handling is stable but unexciting, but that’s good news for novice bikers. The suspension is a bit wallowy, though. The fairing on the Honda CBF600 works well, making motorway riding quite tolerable, and the gearbox is sound.

The Honda CBF600's engine is taken out of the Honda CB600F Hornet, so you’d expect more from this "retuned” (read detuned) engine. Whilst the power band is broad and it can shift well enough, there’s a distinct absence of any real go. Overtakes are hard work, leaping off from the lights doesn’t really happen and even at higher speeds, the Honda CBF600 is wheezing around over 7500rpm.
