Comfort
Not being the biggest of riders I feel I have ample room to manovouver around the seat, however this gives also plenty of room for a pillion to slide into the space. I don’t seem to have issues with longer journeys, pillion seat could be better designed but no complaints.
Ride Quality
As designed as a track focused bike the bike is well balanced and ready to hit the track as well as being comfortable for the road. The throttle if anything is a little sensitive power delivery can not a little uneaven. Feels confident under cornering.

I didn’t but the bike from New and it’s fone a fair few miles from what I can tell apart from normal perishable parts it’s all still standard with good figment or fairing panels.
Engine Rating
For a 600 it’s plenty powerful at tipping over 102bhp at the shell @ 13,500 rpm and a dry weight of 169kg having 64nm of toque. It’s ample for town riding, motorway cruising or having a blast around the track.
Brake Rating
I’ve never worried about stopping, never had any fade under heaven braking. Feel that it could do with braided lines but that’s just an opinion.
Running Cost
With any bike the cost to run is based on how you ride. On a run I feel this bike is more than adequate at miles crunching with breaking the bank, however when in play mode you can see th gauge drop as you ride, but can you put a price in excitement
Overall
Pros CommentsBike is a little heavy with some obvious design bits overlooked (like the point on having “storage” under pillion seat, which is not enough room to fit a wallet or phone.
Cons CommentsThe bikes seems pretty well put together and he general layout had been thought about to help servicing easier. They improved the location of the rear brake receiver in later models so I won’t gripe about that.

Comfort
The only niggle I have with this bike is the pain I'm in with my knees after an hour's riding.
Ride Quality
Nippy and nimble. Smooth acceleration, easy cornering.
Build Quality & Reliability
Never had a single problem with it. It's made me want to stick with Honda regarding buying other motorbikes.
Engine Rating
More than ample for UK roads without feeling out of control.
Brake Rating
It hasn't got abs but has great brakes and Metzler tyres are grippy in dry and wet conditions.
Running Cost
Very affordable insurance with 2 years no claims. Satisfactory MPG considering the performance.
Overall
Pros CommentsHandling, build quality, looks.
Cons CommentsNothing
