The Honda CBR600F originally ran for 20 years, from the innovative and sporty CBR600F1, to being the more sensible option to the CBR600RR. A proven but not particularly exciting model when it ended production in 2006.
Even more ignominiously, when Honda reintroduced the CBR600F in 2011, they pretty much stuck a fairing on the much younger CB600F Hornet. But on the plus side, the Hornet was already a fantastic motorcycle, so the addition of a fairing makes it a great entry-level sports bike. An estimated top speed of 156mph, seat height of 800mm and weight of 194kg mean it's fast and relatively easy to handle, but also capable of pushing on when required.
One of the best features is that the riding position settles somewhere between a full sports crouch and the upright approach of most naked bikes. Great if you want to manage regular or long trips without ending up with a hunchback. It was replaced in 2014 with the Honda CBR650F.
The 5-spoke cast Aluminium 17" wheels take a 120/70 tyre at the front and 180/55 at the rear.
Available colours: red/white/black, blue/white/black, black

Check out this review from RoadcraftNottingham:
Honda introduced the CBR600F in 1987, which many now refer to as the Jelly Mould. It used a re-worked VFR750 frame and replaced the VF500. Power was provided by a 598cc inline four cylinder engine, producing maximum power of 85bhp at 9,500rpm.
1989 saw an engine re-design, resulting in a higher top speed of 145mph and a tweaks to the fairing and shock.
The F2 arrived in 1991 with a larger bore 599cc engine producing 100bhp at 12,000rpm. The wheels went from 3 spoke to 6 spoke while the frame was stiffened and forks strengthened.
The F3 arrived in 1995 with larger 296mm front discs, tuned frame and new ram-air intake. 1997 saw a small change to increase power to 105bhp and top speed to 150mph.
The F4 arrived in 1999 with a sizeable weight reduction of 15kg, mostly due to a new Aluminium frame and lighter engine. Less weight increased the top speed to 160mph and noticeably improved the economy. The new engine realised 110bhp at 12,500rpm.
The F4i appeared in 2001 with fuel injection, fox-eye headlights and lighter 3 spoke wheels.
Production ceased between 2007 and 2010 before the latest generation appeared in 2011, largely based on the CB600F Hornet with a fairing. It sold reasonably well before being replaced by the brand new CBR650F in 2014.
