Dimiti, I'm sorry.... You were right. I just noticed Honda have reworked the cbr600. Mostly cosmetic, a bit more oomph in the low-mid range, big bore front forks. ... Basically it's the old bike with better looks. I like cbrs and the cbr600 has a firm place in my short list of what to get at any time..... Well it did. What he hell is with linking the back brake to the front?? I can't think of ANY good reason for it. It's obviously not popular with cbr buyers, cause they've reduced the amount the front brakes come on for this year, but what the hell sort of scooter riding wanktards do Honda have working for them these days? I might be a bit of an exception here cause I often trail some rear through corners, particularly slow ones or rainy roundabouts, to smooth power delivery and keep the chain tight... The LAST thing I want is some nerdy "I know what u want better than you do" rider "aid" applying front brake and increasing my likelihood of a front end wash out... If I want front brake I've got a lever for it... fcuk off.
