Honda CBR600F3 1995-1998
598cc, 16v, dohc inline four Last ‘steelie’ CBR-F and arguably the definitive supersports all-rounder. 36mm carbs and raised compression boosted power to 100bhp.
Value now: £1200-£2500
Yamaha FZR600R 1994-1998
599cc, 16v, dohc inline four Updated FZR600 got new, 99bhp engine (but no EXUP), rwu forks, new steel Deltabox frame and generic YZF ‘styling. A bit ‘budget’ in some areas.
Value now: £1300-£2600
Suzuki RF600R 1993-1997
599cc, 16v, dohc inline four Smooth-revving four gave 100bhp in a decent if slightly bulky chassis, funky styling and a good price. Never quite enough to beat the Honda on road or track and it wasn’t as durable, either, but still a decent buy.
Value now: £900-£1800
