2013 Honda CB600F Specifications and price

Posted by korban ali on Monday, August 5, 2013 0

The Honda CB600F has a long history behind it and since it was first launched in 1998 it was constantly upgraded. Today the motorcycle continues to be one of the most wanted middleweight naked models in its class offering a great mix of comfort, great handling and sporty performance.

Compared to the 2012 versions the 2013 Honda CB600F remains unchanged and the only difference is that the bike now comes with a stylish new Matt White colour paint scheme.

In terms of power the 2013 Honda CB600F is equipped with a liquid-cooled, 4-stroke, 16-valve DOHC inline-4 engine with a displacement of 599cc. The engine is combined with an advanced PGM-FI electronic fuel injection system which provides instant throttle response and precise control.

The stopping power is handled by front and rear disc brakes paired with a modern ABS system.

 The CB600F Hornet is undoubtedly one of Europe’s most influential middleweight Naked motorcycles. Originally launched in 1998, it has close ties to the race-winning CBR600RR, but has always presented its own unique package of sporty performance and light, user-friendly handling. Its versatile power, comfort and convenience make it popular among riders who want a practical motorcycle that’s both easy and enjoyable to ride, while its contemporary Naked styling ensures its popularity among fashion-conscious riders. Affordability, reliability and low running costs add to its all-round appeal.

Updates to the Hornet have always been closely based on rider feedback. In 2000, it received a larger 17" front wheel and in 2003 the fuel capacity was enlarged. It received a complete makeover in 2007, with updated styling plus technology, safety and environmental protection technologies that brought it right to the top of the mid-displacement Performance Naked class. Since then the Hornet has continued to set the standards in a growing midrange motorcycle class, staying ahead of the game with styling updates and the addition of adjustable suspension systems in 2009.

In 2011 and 2012 Honda again responded to customer feedback with impressive styling updates and new colours. The meter cover was redesigned to integrate the headlight and instrument panel in one sleek unit that enhances the smooth, aerodynamic front profile. A new instrument panel with a digital tachometer added to the bike’s usability as well as its sophisticated image. The compact rear was reshaped with a higher, thinner tail that increased its lightweight, sporty look.

For 2013 the CB600F’s contemporary streetfighter image will again be enhanced with a stylish new Matt White colour version.
