2005 Honda CB600F Hornet

Honda CB600F Hornet

Honda's original Wild Thing, the CB600F Hornet, is back for another year of road-ripping riding excitement. With sharp looks and sexy styling highlighted by a distinctive multi-reflector headlight and its comfortably contoured seat, the everpopular Hornet lets the whole world know its loaded for high-spirited thrills and the ultimate in riding fun. Offering one of the most impressive power-to-weight ratios in its class, the Hornet's hard-revving DOHC inline-4 engine delivers an almighty blast of midrange torque that pulls you out of corners and up to speed in a hurry. And with its light and responsive handling and racer-look wheels and tyres, is it any wonder that the Hornet has become one of Europe's best loved mid-sized smile machines?
