2000 Honda CBR600FY
Superb rapid surefooted all rounder
Absolutely well impressed with my Honda. Power delivery is smooth and progressive. Very quick at higher revs.
Handling feels sure footed and confidence inspiring. I tried taking corners I previously took on the ZZR600, and the Honda was superior in every way. It followed the road perfectly and allowed me to enter faster!
Everything on the Honda just feels right (upper market), from the fantastic finish (black) to the ergonomics to the neat and tidy cockpit. Top speed is up with the other newer 600s, although I don't ride that fast preferring to cruise around, and in that department the relaxed seating angle and comfy seat suit me perfectly.
The bike, weighing in at 170kgs, is light and nimble on the move, allowing for rapid line changing. My only gripe would be the wind blast, as the double bubble screen is too small. Never mind, I don't plan on sustaining high speeds for long if at all. Love my Honda!!!
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
