2011 Honda CBR600F UK Pricing Announced

Joining its smaller siblings in Honda’s new-for-2011 British line-up starting next month is the revived CBR600F mode,l an old favorite that yet comes with modern-day usability and the addition of ABS. Pricing for the UK market has been set at £7,055 (including first registration fee and road tax totalling £105).

Also, interested buyers will have the choice of three different color schemes for 2011, Pearl Cool White/Hyper Red, Pearl Cool White/Moody Blue Metallic and Pearl Nightstar Black/Matt Cynos Grey Metallic.

“Production of the CBR600F ceased in 2006 as Honda’s focus turned to the CBR600RR, but recent research has shown a desire for the return of the F model, which carries the performance capabilities of a sports bike but combined with greater versatility, practicality and comfort for all-round riding,” a company statement reads.

The latest version, which has had its world public debut at the 2010 EICMA show in Milan last November, features a modern, sleek design with the latest Combined Anti-Lock Braking System (C-ABS) technology.

The motorcycle’s engine is borrowed from the Hornet, meaning it boasts a powerplant that is derived from that of the CBR600RR, delivering 100 hp at 12,000 rpm and a peak torque of 47 lb/ft at 10,500 rpm.

“Our engineers could have just re-engineered the CBR600RR. But why compromise a single-minded machine? Instead the new CBR600F took a compact alloy 599cc engine and Mono-Backbone aluminium frame as its starting point. This high performance core package was then painstakingly developed to meet the new brief – create a high performance road sportsbike with the accessibility that has always defined the CBR600F,”
Honda says.
