2008 600RR Silver
By Matthew DeCurtis(Owner), Sep. 16, 2008
First off this is probably the most beautiful bike on the market. But when I first got on it and felt the smoothness and the mid-range power, a smile from ear to ear came upon my face. I am coming from a Yamaha R6 and to be honest, the R6 does not even compare. The Handling is top notch, riding post... Read Full Review

'08 CBR 600RR8
By Jon(Owner), Sep. 17, 2008

By Nico Romero(Owner), Sep. 16, 2008
I have rode all of the major brands for the majority of my life. Hands down Honda has made the best all around bike this year. Sure, you could find higher top end on the R6 and ZX6, but try to have them be as forgiving as the 600rr! The midrange grunt of the 600rr out shines every other competitor i... Read Full Review

great bike
By john kwon(Owner), Sep. 18, 2008
what can i say everything about this bike is awesome. From the second you sit on it it just feels right. Every ride on this bike is great whether you're cruising the town, rolling the superslab, or having fun on some twisty roads. Highly recommended if you are looking for an all-around 600cc sportbi...
