The Original Streetfighter Is Back on the Streets
Lean, mean and scanning the scene for new conquests, the startling new 2007
CB600F Hornet stands the mid-displacement Performance Naked class on its head with
riveting new looks, blistering new performance and an always thrilling blast of
enjoyment. From nose to tail, every line and every component is totally new and totally
geared to delivering an electrifying jolt of riding excitement. For those who'll settle for
nothing less than the coolest, most aggressive set of wheels they can throw a leg over,
the new Hornet delivers up the goods with lighter construction, a hotter power-toweight
ratio, quicker, more responsive handling and a defiant look of pure ferocity. So
let it be known: The original streetfighter is back on the streets.
A close blood cousin of the dynamic new 2007 CBR600RR, the new CB600F
delivers a more broadly accessible, 'Multi-Purpose' balance of performance and riding
ease. Its RR-based engine produces a distinctive blend of high-revving power and
midrange punch in keeping with the Hornet's mean streetfighter sensibilities. Further,
carefully calculated reductions in weight and efforts made to centralise mass-as
dynamically illustrated by its new low-mount exhaust system-pay off in both sharper,
more responsive handling and a maximised power-to-weight ratio. All this and more
makes the new 2007 CB600F Hornet the hottest performing and quickest handling
middleweight Performance Naked on the streets of Europe.
The new Hornet's list of hard-hitting new features reads like a high-octane menu
for total road domination.
