You know i was thinking the same thing about the cbr600, if you squint your eyes the front of the bikes side profile looks like a second gen R6.

I'm not really a big fan of the 2013 600RR. With the fairings and silver frame really looks like they went back about 10 years....

Between the 636 and the RR definitely I would go for the 636.

I was just talking about this with my coworkers haha, i agree, It just looks like a late 90s CBR f4 with a separate headlight. I can't put my finger on it but the style is just dated.

Re: No one is talking about the new Hondas???

Okay, now that I've seen the front of the bike the verdict is in. That bike sucks! The silver swing-arm and other parts suck too. At least they followed suit from the 1KRR on the wheels.

Re: No one is talking about the new Hondas???

This seems to be the only contender in the style department against our beloved R6 and it hasn't changed much since 2006. I'm loving my bike even more right now.

Rims are nice, rest of the bike is very meh. The front looks like the front of a car from the 80s.
