Summary:

This is all the bike I'll ever need

Faults:

I loaned it to a friend and he proceeded to evade the authorities, lost control ensuing a crash.

Voltage regulator went bad at 25,000 miles.

The usual breakage that occurs when idiots try to out run the law.

General Comments:

In my humble opinion this is all the bike one needs for street riding.

Honda Motors started as a motorcycle production company, as they say the rest is history.

I've outcornered and outridden riders on higher displacement motorcycles.

The CBR600 is a do it all machine, track days, highways, corners, pillon, etc.

Highly recommended for all levels of experience.

Whether you're a newbie or an older rider like myself.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
