Honda CBR600F

Advantages: Reliable and nimble

Disadvantages: tank is too small about 150 miles from full tank

I passed my DAS in July 2007 and researched bikes based on looks performance rideability and cost. I finally came to the conclusion that the CBR 600F was the only bike for a new rider who wants to safely ride with street cred.

I had never rode a bike before my 7 half day lessons which equates to about 28 hours of riding and at leaset 6 of those hours was on a 125cc moped with no gears. The point being I am (was) a novice when I was looking for a bike after passing my test and I was advised not to get a sports bike by most non riders, however i read magazines and reviews which all said the CBR 600F was a good learner bike so I went with my gut instinct and brought a 2005 silver model.

I did all the HPI checks, drove over 275 miles from london to Newcastle to pick it up and was too scared to test ride it when I got there, nerves got the better of me, but still purchased it with good faith from the seller that it was a good ride.

I was loaded into th van and i kept stopping to open the back because the datatool alarm kept going off and I hadnt asked how to disable it. i read the manual to put it in service mode and 3 and a half hours later finally got it home.

The next day I couldnt wait to try it out my excitement and nervs were mixed but i knew i had to concentrate on the road.

I turned the ignition on and watched in ore as the digital speedo went from 0 – 165 mph at the same time as the rev counter flicked to maximum and back. I pressed the ignition start switch and flicked the accellorator and just listened in ore as the counter went up to 5k revs and back in a split second.

The engine warms and the display indicated that the engine was at 35 degrees, it steadily rose as the engine got warmer.

I was ready to ride and the moment of truth had arrived.

I was not disapointed the engine noise through the exsaust was awsome the clutch and accellorator worked together to transmit the power to the finely balanced gearbox.

The bike rides like a dream. I was too scared to give it too much revvs however the sense of power was there wasent even trying and I was catapullted from 0 – 50 in about 4 seconds.

I have read that the official 0 -60 is 3.1 seconds.

I have been riding for 4 months now and can say that the bike is the best thing I have ever brought. It looks stunning, its power is breathtaking and monouverability nimble.

My advise to any exprienced or new rider is, get one they rock!

Summary: Great bike no nonsense riding
