2012 Honda CBR600RR


Great handling and comfort, but needs more power

General Comments:

After spending 3 years with my Kawasaki Ninja 250R, I decided to switch into a bigger CC bike. At first, I was looking for another Kawasaki, but then I wanted to try a different brand. I decided to go for the Honda, because it has the most comfortable riding position for my size.

Stepping from a 250CC bike into a 600CC is quite a different experience. It takes time to get used to the power, but it doesn't take that long. This bike handles so well, and it's not that hard to use all the power around the mountain roads.

It is also a pretty good daily bike. The seats are comfortable, and in my opinion, it has the best riding position compared to the other 600CC Japanese sports bikes. It has plenty of power for my daily commute.

After testing a couple of sports bikes in the motorcycle club, I decided to sell the bike last year and bought the Yamaha R6. I realized that although the Honda is pretty fast for my standard, the competitors offer much more power. Despite that, I still think the Honda is the most comfortable bike for daily use, and it is a great handling bike.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Don't Know
