Advantages: Performance Comfort Build Quality
Disadvantages: A little old fashioned nowadays
I ride approximately 30,000 miles per year on motorcycles and I rate the CBR as the best combination of comfort and performance. I have covered 11,000 miles in the last 6 months on a CBR600 FV - 1997 vintage. Capable of 150 mph yet returning 40+ mpg when ridden quickly on long journeys,
the bike has everything in its favour.
Honda build quality is excellent and the performance, handling and finish have not deteriorated over time (and mileage) as other manufacturers' products have done in the past.
The riding position is more upright than out and out sportsbikes and a journey of 150 miles can be completed in relative comfort. The fairing is large enough to make riding quickly possible without developing forearm's like Arnie's!
Original spare parts and bodywork is very expensive (and difficult to source in some colour combinations), so try not to drop it anywhere!
