The CB600F Hornet is undoubtedly one of Europe’s most influential middleweight Naked motorcycles. Originally launched in 1998, it has close ties to the race-winning CBR600RR, but has always presented its own unique package of sporty performance and light, user-friendly handling. Its versatile power, comfort and convenience make it popular among riders who want a practical motorcycle that’s both easy and enjoyable to ride, while its contemporary Naked styling ensures its popularity among fashion-conscious riders. Affordability, reliability and low running costs add to its all-round appeal.
Updates to the Hornet have always been closely based on rider feedback. In 2000, it received a larger 17" front wheel and in 2003 the fuel capacity was enlarged. It received a complete makeover in 2007, with updated styling plus technology, safety and environmental protection technologies that brought it right to the top of the mid-displacement Performance Naked class. Since then the Hornet has continued to set the standards in a growing midrange motorcycle class, staying ahead of the game with styling updates and the addition of adjustable suspension systems in 2009.
For 2011, Honda has again remained true to its clearly defined aim of not just meeting but exceeding customer expectations for the Hornet, and has responded to feedback with impressive styling updates. The meter cover has also been redesigned to integrate the headlight and instrument panel in one sleek unit that enhances the smooth, aerodynamic front profile. A new instrument panel with a digital tachometer adds to the bike’s usability as well as its sophisticated image.
The compact rear has also been reshaped with a higher, thinner tail that increases its lightweight, sporty look. The 2011 CB600F Hornet will be available in new colours that reinforce its contemporary streetfighter image.
