Bike Review: 2012 Honda CB600F HornetAugust 10, 2012 by: Rituraj Mishra
2012 Honda CB600F hornet was coming for sometime now and we were not sure what to expect, but now that it’s launched we can dig in and get the facts out. Featuring a 599 cc liquid-cooled, inline four-cylinder engine which is a unique addition to the bike along with Computer-controlled digital transistorized ignition this bike produces 63.50 Nm of torque.
It’s not covered a lot and that proves to be a beautifying factor and with a 6-speed gearbox it is always raring to go. Double disc with optional ABS takes guard at front while the rear has a single disc and they are pretty tight at stopping you, whatever speed you may be carrying off.
With just 198kg, wet weight it should be a light bike that has some heavy fun.
