2006 Honda CB600F Hornet

Honda CB600F Hornet

Meet the bike that started motorcycling's 'streetfighter' phenomenon. Now know it by its name: Hornet. With trick looks and sharp performance provided by its recently added inverted front fork, Honda's original Wild Thing, the CB600F Hornet, is back for another year of road-burning riding excitement. Power, as always, comes from a strongrevving DOHC inline-4 engine that delivers an almighty blast of midrange power to pull you out of corners and up to speed in a hurry. Like its namesake, nothing about the Hornet is slow or sluggish.

Looks are also sharp and sexy, with a distinctive dual-bulb multi-reflector headlight, a wide, comfortably contoured seat and a high-riding 4-into-2-into-1 exhaust system that delivers a spirited buzz whenever you pull its throttle. With one of the most impressive power-to-weight ratios in its class, not to mention its light and responsive handling and racer-look wheels and tyres, the ever-popular Hornet lets the whole world know it's loaded for high-spirited thrills and the ultimate in riding fun. Is it any wonder that the Hornet rules the streets as one of Europe's best loved mid-sized smile machines?
