Everything you want in one bike
Cam chain starting mildly slapping around 11,000 miles.
The perfect bike for any situation, the Honda CBR600F4I meets the needs of inexperienced and experienced riders a like. First bike? You'll be feeling like a super-hero in no time!
Don't worry about your neighbor, who has never ridden before, but just bought a brand new 1000, when he tells you that his bike is faster than yours. VERY few people actually use everything a 1000 has to offer, and when taking off at a red light - the better rider usually wins - not the faster bike. After effortlessly gliding your 600 through the first corner, things will start to come into much better perspective.
Most importantly, however - the 600 is hands DOWN the most comfortable rocket available! Just try to sit on a GXSR for two minutes, and your wrist will be killing you! I have ridden my F4I for hours without any discomfort at all - and I'm 6'3! So who cares if your neighbor's bike is a bike-length faster than yours - you're still faster than anything with 4 wheels! And when you get home - you won't have to wrap your wrist!
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
