BOOTHY'S BLUFF

Fast Bikes - - CORE TEST -

I’ve done tons of miles on this bike and for a cheap run-around I don’t think you can fault it. With (by to­day’s stan­dards) a lack­lus­tre 90 some­thing brake you have got to work a bit harder to keep up with the R1 bri­gade but with a bit of com­mit­ment it is en­tirely ca­pa­ble and it will leave your mates reach­ing for their ex­cuse book as to why they couldn’t drop you.

Looks-wise, well the CBR leaves a lot to be de­sired. It’s got to be one of the ugli­est CBR 600s ever made, on a par with the old jelly-mould model; but hey, it’s not a fash­ion show… is it?
