You can't get much better sports bike on the road
Scraped it a bit when off-roading in a field in France.
This bike is easy to ride.
Fast, lightweight, therefore fun to ride. You can snap it through bends with ease.
The seat is uncomfortable after 100 miles, you can get aftermarket seats from USA (i.e. Corbin) which helps.
Looks good and futuristic 6 years on.
This bike was good for riding all over France, that's where the 'sports tourer' element comes in.. It is a bike that has a great riding position. It's just a top bike - ride one and see.
Gear changes seem to be more frequent on this 600 than my old VFR 750, which had more torque in all rev ranges, so you will have to change up and down more on the CBRf4i - then you get a bigger bike and it's heavier and less nimble - so it ain't that big a deal.. Get one, you will love it. Most 600's are similar unless you are Valentino Rossi or his mum or someone like that.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
