Honda CBF1000 (2006 2009)

I occasionally wonder if I be more critical of new bikes at press launches. The thing is, there are very few perfect there are also very few duffers. It’s generally a matter of pointing out a few areas for can usually tell how a new bike ride by looking at the spec (which is exactly what I did on the to Athens, where the launch and frankly, I didn’t have hopes for the Honda CBF1000 its prudent approach (on paper at to motorcycling.

Borrowing an engine a famous sportsbike and shoving it in a all-rounder is no guarantee of success. it basic components with a sensible look and you could be in for a kicking from disappointed All this aside, theories from press packs can be turned on their head.

As with the smaller 600 version, has incorporated its ‘Just Fit’ to the manufacture of the 1000, which meekly between the Hornet 900 and the two CB1300s. In short, this adjustability for the handlebars, seat and making the CBF more appealing for the legged among us. And no, I don’t it’s a girls’ bike, making adjustments in the other should enhance its appeal to riders too.

Honda has given the CBF a non-threatening look so it can it as a ‘beginner’s’ 1000, or simply to ‘nice’ people you’re to meet on Hondas who don’t for racy paintwork and socially graphics. There will be a of four other colours for not tempted by the Highland green scheme seen here.

then, we’ve figured out it’s a vehicle for inexperienced upstanding vicars who want to go and arrive discreetly at their session of the Surbiton Swingers. So why the has Honda seen fit to shoe-horn a motor into the poor bugger, particularly as it competes the Suzuki Bandit rather the more street fighting

Well, the Blade engine is a refined individual, and Honda has it to provide lots of passenger low and mid-range torque with of the screaming top-end rush might frighten off decent The chassis is derived from its brother, so the result is a very 1000 in the body of a 600, offers another confidence aspect for riders tentatively the world of grown-up biking.

having to teeter through the rush hour on the most surfaces imaginable, the motor its presence felt immediately. Its are impeccable and it will surge away in all situations, without reference to the PGM fuel injection No embarrassing lurching or stuttering as Greeks are negotiated in first (the five-speed transmission is incidentally, than is usual Honda).

Once into the mountains and through sweet but slippery it becomes apparent this is not just a peach in town; no it is, in a complete and utter gem. has apportioned power and all-important in precisely the right quantities and at the revs, making the bike effortless to ride, even It will pull cleanly 1500 rpm in all gears and is already in the fat of the by 4000rpm.

Proper progress is made by 6000rpm, which is the gearchange point unless you to max out at 8,000-9,000rpm.

Honda deserves enough for making the smooth, CBF motor the ace that it is, and therefore the that the CBF is, but it’s also to generate the elusive fun factor. It odd that such an unassuming thing should be so enjoyable and The suspension package, allied to a turning chassis with a rear Michelin allowed positioning and the kind of progress could infuriate a 600cc rep on a section of twisty road.

This low-revving quick resulted in impressive fuel too. After 90 miles the gauge was showing only a of a tank had been used, another tester who had travelled the distance at high revs had an tank. An optimistic reading but none the less.

It’s a very comfortable bike for the rider, but one that should just about anyone. 10mm of forward adjustment for the and three height positions 15mm for the seat, which is adjustable by 10mm for forward The screen can be fixed in two positions, the highest being 40mm the standard setting, giving a appropriate touring configuration.

The ample braking performance is care of by twin floating discs with two-piston and a single-piston rear caliper. I happily live without the CBS brake system and the optional ABS to the test bike, though concede it’ll probably be a for the CBF target market. The ABS was constantly to action on the slippery Athens and performed well.

There also be a decent range of available including full luggage, hand guards, grips, alarm, snazzy and carbon fibre bits and So the option to pimp the CBF for more or long distance comfort appeal to those not satisfied the basic bike.

At £5999 (or £6299 with buyers will have to complain about because the is a fine, well-developed bike. So the styling leaves me flaccid, this starchy overcoat the heart of a cheeky pervert.
