Yuck, they just made the pre gen cbr600r not looking boring anymore. That takes skill. Please don't let Yamaha and Suzuki pull this stunt too.

I guess I have to see it in person, but I'm not linking the 600RR fairings...

But going back to more traditional fairings means it has less pieces, less tabs to break, etc.

Go soothingly on the greasy mud, for therein lies the skid demon.

like the look of the 600.

Dunno what the hell they were thinking with the goldwing or the 1000 (whether its new this year or not, it looks tarded)

BORING!! HEAVY! is how I see the CBR500. Its like a Suzuki Bandit to me for the year 2013.
The CBR600RR looks dull too. Got to admit Kawasaki and Suzuki are the ones to get for exciting looks and. I rather get the Ninja 300 over the CBR500 cause that thing is 428 pds full of fuel and oil.

I have to admit the CBR250R is still the best bike Honda has come up with in 3 years. Everything is plain jane.

The CBR500 is interesting, the 600RR is hideous, and when did Honda start making Harleys?

The new 600 looks like ass, but i like the 500. I also like that new Goldwing cruiser looking thing. That's a Japanese cruiser/tourer. Completely original, not just and HD knock off like every other Japanese cruiser.

If this is Japan's biggest bike maker's response to 3+ years of European sportbike domination, the Euro bike makers have nothing to fear.

they're still making the normal 'wing, that's just the 'sport' version or something.

Seriously. The Germans and Italians are probably having a hard time breathing due to laughing too hard.

I just love how Honda continues to blatantly lie about "Mass Centralization" and continues to use it as PR material on their bikes like the 600rr with a 18 lbs exhaust (plus all the addition weight for piping to route it there...) at the highest point and the furthest distance from the central mass of the bike.

Have they actually seen a bike that actually have a mass centralization design?
