From canyon carving to touring, the CBR is tough to beat
There have been no service issues with any CBR I have owned (this is my fourth).
The cam chain is noisy, but only when cold; sounds great after a warm up.
This is an outstanding all around motorcycle. When you rate handling, braking, etc consider this is a 600lb sport bike that is almost 20 years old. It doesn't do anything exceptional, but from short trips around the block to cross country rides, this bike handles it all.
It could use more wind protection, but compared to other sport bikes, it has plenty. I have seen some replacement windscreens that look like they would correct the problem, but I have never used one.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
