The most interesting thing about this bike is that is as good as every sports bike but the good thing is that it doesn’t costs that much it is below 10 grand. It is powered by a stroke that is as powerful to make it a motorcycle for people who want purposeful motorcycle for the road. It is four cylinder bike that is assembled and also built in Thailand. Also some of the parts as the clutch and the ignition remained the same. But various parts are not the same like the engine cases and the cylinder head. The cylinder bore is a little bit longer. It uses 87 octane fuel and it is pumped through a 4-2-1 exhaust but the design is inspired by four cylinder. The chassis has an active part that is the engine and it is located hanging 30 degrees forward. It is more stable because the steering is a bit more relaxed. The suspension is adjusted and limited and has better preload on the shock body. The brakes are also up to date and the calipers are from Nissin. It has some similarities with other sports bikes like the fact that each brake can be applied independently and of course there won’t be linking effect. ABS are optional. Although is similar with the rest of the CBR family it is also a lot different. So you get a bike that is unique. Like we expect from the Japanese the bike is built to perfection. The tail is one component that gives a really clean look, not only that the lights are above the halogen headlamp so we get a flat profile. The response from the throttle is accurate and the engine works really smoothly and you can’t feel any vibration. Be aware that sometimes it can have a little bit of pressure on the front brake but yet nothing is that perfect everything must have some flaws. However is not that difficult to drive it. This is one peppy size of a sports bike and people who love this kind of bikes will not be disappointed. After all it is Honda but it is up to you to decide weather you like it or not.
