Honda CBF 1000

This is another interesting bike, avail in Canada, not sure about the US.
Has anyone here had experience with one, they have been avail in Europe since 2006 i believe. Ill post a photo soon.
Looks like a nice upgrade from the Versys, certainly nicer to look at compared to the Versys 1000!

Cheers

heres a pic, nice looking bike.
Check out the overall very positive reviews. A nice handling bike, with a 160 rear tire.
Well thought out do-it-all bike, the return of the UJM.
I guess a Bandit 1250/Versys 1000/tiger 1050 would be the closest competitors.

This is a proper UJM. Sadly not available here. Is it available in Canada?

Great all round bike, very under-rated. I had a CBF 600 and test rode the CBF 1000. CBF 1000 very smooth, I found the gear changes slick and bike handles well. Seat has 3 heights so suits even the smaller rider, has ABS and with luggage fitted - great tourer.

Looks great in white.........................

Why the heck can't we get bikes like that in the US? There has got to be a market for them. Maybe more of one then the Versys.

The "proper UJM" is Honda's new CB1100F. I've lusted after this bike for more than a year but it does not appear to be headed to the US anytime soon.

We get the CB1000, which I thought was the same bike with less plastic.
