Honda CB 600 F HORNET 2013

13 years. It took all this time for the Hornet to find, adopt, integrate its true face; or rather, a facies whose identity really matches the nickname Honda gave it. It’s undeniable, it’s stylish, it’s insectivorous, and it’s obvious. Even those who don’t know anything about bikes express their first impression when they see the CB 600 F 2011/2013: “This bike looks like a hornet!” And what does Hornet mean in English, mmmmm….. ?

However, the original idea of ​​the Hornet 2011-2013 was to reshape its face to better approximate that of the big brother CB 1000 R. It is true that the inspiration is undeniable as much as it is subtle, but the designer has left his pencil slightly derived so that the fork head adopts a more obvious design. All he needs is mandibles to eat the imprudent raw.
As long as the CB 1000 R doesn’t say anything, we’re going to steal some styling ideas from it. So be it, and the dashboard evolves in this spirit, seeing itself completely redesigned, with an endowment now entirely digital. Very controversial when it was released, the rear part becomes much more incisive, its sting ending with a rear light now with diodes..

Redesigned by Boxer Design, Wakisashi version, R version, adoption of an inverted fork in 2005, 2007 CBR 600 engine during its big evolution the same year, Honda’s favorite roadster has evolved a lot since its birth in 1998. And yet , it remains surprisingly faithful to its original technical principle: a sporty 600 engine largely enhanced thanks to a backbone type monobackbone frame with Diamond architecture. Let’s put it mildly: the elements chosen have changed quite a bit, especially in 2007. It was at this point that the frame swapped steel for aluminum. The inverted fork was already there since 2005. Faithful to the 4 cylinders of the CBR, the CB 600 F surprises everyone by this choice. Indeed, scalded by the success of the Z 750, all Japanese mid-capacity roadsters moved up to the next cubic level. In 2011, the Hornet will be the only Japanese to display 600 cm3 without complex. This engine does not demerit, on the contrary. Lively and loving to take turns, this boiler gives all the proper pep to this mid-size streetfighter. But opposite, it’s more torque in the Yamaha FZ8, Kawasaki Z 800 and Suzuki 750 GSR.

Under the dress more CB-1000-Risée, the Hornet renews its confidence in its sure and proven values. Namely a 102 horsepower engine block held by the discreet aluminum frame, two 296 mm brake discs which can be assisted by combined ABS, a 41 mm inverted fork but no radial brake calipers. A list of options allows you a certain level of customization. The main thing is more in the Hornet’s premium ease and convenience.
