General Comments:

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
