Most Powerful Bikes
When it comes to 600s with legend status, its hard to argue for anything to be number one other than the original CBR600F. Before this bike, there was no 600 class. The CBR600F was an ambitious attempt to create a single bike that was all things to all people, and it worked remarkably well, effectively doing the same allrounder trick as the VFR750, just in a lower class and at a much lower price. In all its steelframed glory, with basic suspension, 85bhp engine and jellymould styling, it proved to be just as happy touring as on the track. The styling was updated for the 90s but the same steelframed thinking carried on long after its rivals switched to aluminium. Despite being lowtech, the CBR just kept winning on the track (taking European supersports titles in 91, 92, 93 and 94) and in showrooms, where it was a bestseller year after year. Surely any remaining 1987spec CBR600s in mint condition (are there any?) are soon to rocket in value.
