Well, it seems that Honda are the only manufacturer that make a bike in the style/design I am looking for when I upgrade from the GPX250 I am looking for a 600 with good performance, a semi sporty/yet fairly releaxed riding position and something that isn't a bloated "tourer" style (ZZR600 for instance) The CBR600F4i seems to fit the bill for me perfectly! I have had a history of back problems, I had an operation on my left wrist a few years back and it is not going to be 100% again - so I can't have something that puts too much weight on the wrists etc. I had thought of maybe a ZX6 and putting some clip-ons on....anyone done this? So does anyone have any thoughts on the CBR? I should add, the bike will be primarily used as a commuter, with the odd weekend blast.
