1998 Honda CBR600F3 For Sale by Auction
Although Kawasaki can be said to have 'invented' the 600 class with its GPZ600-R, it was Honda that quickly established dominance of this once important market sector with the CBR600F. Introduced for 1987, the CBR set new standards for the class, and the UK's first batch sold out within weeks of arrival. "Offering a previously mythical package, the CBR quite simply left all previous efforts at similar-sized tackle gasping in it whisper-smooth wake," enthused Bike magazine. In 1991 the CBR received a new frame and an updated engine before undergoing a more thorough revision in 1998, re-emerging with an aluminium frame (replacing the previous steel design) and restyled bodywork. As seen here, the 3rd generation CBR600 was produced from 1995 to 1998, featuring a modified engine, ram-air intake, and cartridge forks. "150mph on a good day, race-winning handling, unburstable, useful, repairable, tourable, thrashable, insurable..." you could tell Bike magazine liked the refreshed CBR. A rare US import, UK registered since 1997, this CBR600F3 is finished in its original yellow/purple colour scheme and is described by the vendor as in good running condition. MoT'd to June 2021, the machine is offered with a V5C Registration certificate. A wonderful opportunity to acquire one of these modern motorcycling icons.
