Honda CBR 600 F 2011


This is the return of one of the most emblematic sports cars in the history of the 600s. Because we are gradually forgetting it, but before being a pure pistarde, the CBR 600 was F before being RR . The market wanted radical machines, which precipitated the end of the F series. Appeared in 1987, the flagship of a category, praised many times, it ends in 2006 in complete confidentiality. 23,000 copies sold in France will not have been enough to assure him offspring…. Until 2011 when the CBR 600 F made its big rebirth.

Besides, how many times has it been said that a modern tracker is no longer suitable for the road. Demanding, uncomfortable, sharp, expensive, exclusive, these models only thought of the track and the stopwatch, not your back. The CBR 600 F was something else. Sporty that you could use every day, capable of road and sport, like the Yamaha 600 Thundercat. But the public wants the dream, the exceptional. So we give him some.
Could this weather be bending over backwards? This would explain the reappearance of the CBR 600 F. Which takes the same ideas as before. And that is really good. These values ​​are reflected in the form of the clothing, sporty but not too much. The Honda Rome design office took care of this silhouette, based on the multi-layered design. But I can’t find the CBR soul, this Honda-style symbol of sport. I have the impression that she is wearing a dress she wasn’t predestined for. Wouldn’t this CBR be one ?

Honda CBR 600 F 2011Its real name could have been CBR 600 Hornet…. Whispers in the audience. Calm down ! And take a closer look, remove the fairing. Indeed, underneath, it’s a Hornet, with its aluminum Monobackbone frame (sea .., no more double beam perimeter) and its mellow engine. Its mechanics still have a nice pedigree. The 4 cylinder actually goes back to its origins, because it is a 2007 CBR 600 RR mill just suitable for roadster use. And 100 horsepower is more than enough to indulge yourself in a 600 sports car – there is even a way to scare yourself off when you sag. Above all, it gives you the right foot to discover the sport. My favorite magazine when I was young implied that the CBR 600 was almost a sport-school motorcycle.
Its specific cartography, much less exclusive than it is necessary for a tracker, should give it more roundness and responsiveness. Hey, those who are fed up with living between 13,000 and 15,000 rpm are starting to listen.

Taking the basis of the Hornet roadster, the CBR 600 F opus 2011 will therefore offer road behavior very close to it. Its backbone frame and less radical geometry will take you away from the chrono spirit for a more road-going style at high speed. The inverted 41mm fork will seem perfectly harmless to you, while the brake calipers will seem like they are from another era (not so old though). Calipers with 2 pistons, and fixed axially. What ? No radial? Are you sure your CBR is a sportswoman? Hey oh, guys !!! Remember that just 10 years ago not a single bike on the market had radial calipers; not even an R7 at 27,000 euros.
And worse today, you can have sport-like ABS on your machine. This is also the case here, where C-ABS is an option – in this configuration the calipers are no longer gold but painted black. 3 pistons instead of 2 are installed in the front jaws.

Honda CBR 600 F 2011 Like a good everyday sportswoman, the new CBR 600 F has raised half-handlebars to relieve pressure on the handles. The passenger seat is more welcoming and it is even possible to fit a U under the saddle. It is equipped with a new fully digital dashboard, a coded HISS immobilizer and softer suspensions than the CBR 600 RR (which is quite logical….). By the way, who is that said history is just an eternal restart ?
