Honda CBF600 (2004 - 2007)
A bigger brother of the Honda CBF500, the CBF600 has all the features and comforts that you would want from an all-rounder.
Available in two versions:
- the CBF600S which is half-faired; and
- the CBF600N which is the naked version.
The CBF600 is a supremely competent, stable and reliable motorcycle, making the Honda CBF600 an excellent choice for anyone on an A2 motorcycle license.
When it comes to ride quality, the CBF600 has a comfortable upright position. When riding slower, you can feel some of the 197kg of weight, but at faster speeds the CBF600 is very stable and offers good handling.
Although some say that the Honda CBF600 lacks instant feedback and “go”, the power range is quite broad and easily moves the bike along the road.
On the other side, it’s a Honda, meaning that you can easily trust that the CBF600 will last you a hundred thousand miles! There’s no doubt in saying that the CBF600 offers top-notch reliability, looks great and is great starting point for any A2 rider.
Here’s a walk around of a 2005 Honda CBF600N (the naked version):
You will need a restrictor to ride the Honda CBF600 on an A2 license. See the Honda CBF600 specifications table for restriction info, and the restrictor kits section to see what restrictors are available for the Honda CBF600.
