Honda CBF600 Overview

The Honda CBF600 has been described as dull… and we are sorry to say that we would have to agree. It is a heavy bike for a 600cc, and lacks any real “go” power. However, it does seem well designed and reliably built.  It’s a safe choice for a new biker, but perhaps experienced riders may find it a little too boring.

It is a comfortable bike to ride however. It has an upright seating position which feels good when you’re on it. The handling is stable and you will find the gearbox competent enough. The finish is also good – despite some saying the paint work isn’t great. The functions on the dash are also handy and there’s loads of room if you want a pillion.

The Honda CBF600’s engine is disappointing because it doesn’t have any real go behind it. This makes overtaking hard work, and anything over 7500rpm makes the bike wheeze in pain!

The price is also a little disappointing, too. You could get a new Kawasaki ER-6 for less. You would also need to pay about £300 extra for ABS, heated grips, luggage and a fly screen.
