Lot 344: 1990 Honda CBR600FL

Collectors' Motorcycles, Bonhams (16 October 2005)

Although Kawasaki can be said to have ‘invented’ the 600 class with its GPZ600-R, it was Honda that quickly established dominance of this increasingly 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. An official UK import, this early example featuring the now classic (pre-1991 revamp) ‘jelly mould’ styling, is finished in the distinctive Benetton colour scheme. Presented in good working order throughout, this increasingly collectible modern classic is offered with Swansea V5. No reserve.
