Thumbs up HOT!! CBR600 to be named F5 HOT!!

Details Of The Honda CBR600F5



Copyright 2002, Roadracing World Publishing, Inc.

By David Swarts

The 2003 Honda CBR600F5 will be new from the ground up, lighter, faster, more aggressive and bear more than a resemblance to Valentino Rossiís RC211V MotoGP bike, say inside sources.

I bet it sucks for the owners of the 2002 models. Next thing you know they are coming out with the F6, F7, ETC...ETC.

So, it'll probably have a few more horsepower and weigh 11lb less. But if a given rider can go through a given turn at 63.7mph on an F4i, he'll go 63.7mph on an F5. If he's a skilled drag racer, his ET will drop by a tenth or two; if he's not a skilled drag racer, it won't make a bit of difference. The added power should increase top speed by a couple mph max, so unless Honda has worked some aero magic, too, it will be basically unchanged.

Much ado about very little, IMHO.

Yeah, but the newbies and those who take motojournalists (who love to deal in superlatives and hyperbole) scribblin's to heart will go NUTS!
And ain't that really what it's all about?

All I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by.

Dont ever cut and paste a article from another web site. The proper way would be to add a link. John Ulrich will have a cow if he finds out you did that.

Thanks for the so kind and tactful tip. I recently had a talk with John Ulrich via email and he had this to say.

"We must rigorously enforce our copyrights to maintain control of them, and in no case should any of our copyrighted material be cut and pasted onto another site. Use links only.

Besides, we need the traffic to sell ads to pay for the site maintenance."

So yes there should be a link and now there is.

We should all do our part to educate and inform.

My appologies to ROADRACING WORLD PUBLISHING, Inc.

Isn't that what people said years ago with the original Hurricane, F2, F3, etc? I see no difference now.
