As I said earlier in the thread, I push a MK2 and a CBF600SA around, and I find very little difference between the two of them.  :028:

I found your original post most helpful Phild - You saved me from going off and buying a CBF 600 (I would have tried it out first,  I think).

The 600 is a great bike. My wife tried my MK2 but decided to remain on a 600. When touring she as no trouble staying with me, but I carry the heavy stuff as you can tell the difference when her bike is loaded.  :028:

For me the difference was exactly as Phil says. If your carrying pillions or luggage the extra 400 cc and 20-30 bhp makes all the difference. Riding solo the CBF 600 can be a mean machine if you keep the engine around 8,000 RPM.
