CBF600 -Pics of things to come from Honda

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."

I've always thought it funny when they offer a diff version with just a slight plastic modification... as if you can't do that yourself.

That's not the Hornet, they have a CB600 and a Hornet 600 in Europe.

It's the CBF600. . .not the Hornet, as described. The CBF has visual similarities to the 599, the old Hornet.

At least the low canister won't make the rider smell like buttox.

I like it, but I don't know if it's better than what we had.

Different motors. The F has a stacked transmission.

Why didn't they invert the forks like the new Hornet in Europe?
