The CBF600 is less transfomer-like than the current Hornet 600, more of a "standard" look than naked. The new CBF, well, looks like the the old Hornet. There is also a half-faired version called the CBF600S. So far there's no talk of a liter version of the CBF or the Hornet. I guess we'll see what Honda has up their sleeves.
Here's the accompanying text:
"Alongside Honda's new CBR1000 at the Paris Motorcycle Show, the Japanese company had its new CBF600 and CBF600S - looking suspiciously similar to the models launched in 2004.
However, under the skin the unfaired CBF600 and half-faired CBF600S are actually all-new. Featuring the engine from the Hornet - similar to the CBR600 unit but tuned for good low end grunt and mid-range responsiveness - the new CBFs also feature a Hornet-inspired mono backbone cast aluminium chassis, tweaked to create a more relaxed riding position.
Compared to the Hornet, both CBFs get a larger, 20 litre fuel tank; shorter gear ratios; a narrower seat and an ABS system. The half-faired 'S' version also gets a new, lighter front fairing.
The new bikes are expected to reach dealerships early next year."
