2007 Honda CBR600RR
Eats Harley Davidson bikes for breakfast
Nothing! It's a Honda.
Had very high mileage when I got it. The first day I owned the bike, a guy on a Harley thought he was being funny by revving his ridiculously loud Harley next to my Honda at the lights. I gave it one rev to about 12,000 RPM and the guy looked a little worried as his pushrod powered Harley probably topped out at 8-9000 RPM (1950s engine technology).
On half throttle I left the Harley standing, and let's just say he wasn't so amused after I toyed with him the whole way home.
This bike is insane over 7000 RPM; it just flies. The transmission shifts so smooth and it's only a 600cc, yet I've never had to open it up all the way to beat any other bike off the lights.
I've never come up next to a 1000cc Honda, Suzuki or Yamaha etc. But I did smoke a 1600cc Harley once where the guy wasn't too impressed when I told him my bike was a 600!!!
The Honda is very light; not much heavier than my previous bike (CM200t).
Even over 90,000km and redlining the heck out of the bike daily, it still purrs like a champ.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
