First thing is that it is a small bike, by that I mean it fits smaller riders like myself great. It's typical honda, everything works the way it should. Comfortable, with plenty of real world power and handling. I traded in a triumph speed triple to get the 599. It's a great fit for me. I think it's the best of the mid-sized naked bikes, but thats just my opinion.
See my wifes at the following link http://www.customamd.com/honda599
we swapped out the handle bar with an aluminum renthal bar from a CRF-450 alot wider and straiter.
that stock bar had a weird narrow bend made my wrists feel uncomfortable.
