    A bit of an irrelevant question as anything over 125cc is more than enough for road use, so by your measure a CBF500 would be the equal of the thou 🤔

    More realistically, am I quicker, safer and having more fun on the ‘blade than the CBF for the same level of commitment….  Yes. Does the CBF get out of shape in places and at speeds that don’t impact the ‘blade?  Yes. Sorry to disappoint 😉. The CBF is a good bike.  But you need to be honest with yourself, it is both basic motorcycling and bland.
    the cbf1000 is a great bike, i have had loads of motorcycles, last three Honda blackbird 7 years ,triumph Daytona 675 two years Kawasaki z1000 sx 2019. years ago owed the first cbf1000 nice bike owed for three years yes it was a bit of a plain jane or whatever that means ? but able to leave all the sports bikes behind with the right rider, its not always about the equipment. Ron Haslam used to use CBF1000 for there instructors keeping ahead of the so called sports bikes,  and i don't under stand by what the hell you are talking about being out of shape in places that to me means your in control or you have crashed ? :164:

    Oooh defensive 😂

    And presumptuous too.  I ain’t crashed nor have I come close.  You’ve clearly missed the point that the same rider on a CBF will be unlikely to be as quick as on something better yet bleat that a race instructor can ride faster than a punter on Haslam’s school 🤔. Who knew 🤦‍♂️

    Where is this going? You come on a CBF 1000 forum and with less than 10 posts on the boards you're calling the CBF 1000 bland! You're just a 'king troll mate.

    The point is the CBF 1000 isn't bland! For an honest review read what MCN had to say here

    Do me a favour.  I have a different opinion to you so please mature a little.  I can see why this forum is so dead 🤔

    As for MCN they say:

    “ The detuned 06 fireblade engine isn’t going to set the world on fire”

    “ the wheels and suspension remain rather basic”

    “ when you ride out of the bike past its design parameters will you get any complaints as the pegs start to scrape and the rear is a little soft.”

    I agree with them.  I’ve never said it was a bad bike, I like mine.  But I’m not blind to its limitations.

    Not what I read, care to post a link to the MCN reviews you refer to?

    The MCN highlighted bullet points for their review of the SC58 (link here) are
      Excellent handling and comfort
      Detuned Fireblade engine for plenty of power
      Not the most exciting looks

    and for the SC64 the MCN highlighted bullet points for their review of the SC64 (link here) are
      A brilliant jack of all trades bike
      Legendary Honda build quality
      Detuned 'Blade engine isn't even that bad on fuel

    🤦‍♂️

    You really don’t get it.  When MCN describe the engine as not going to set the world alight I might have thought you’d get it ( you need to read the review on the mk2).  The CBF really isn’t an an exciting machine.  100bhp was big news back in 1979.  In 1992 the CBR600F2 had 100bhp with far lower weight.  Now, 100bhp is almost beginner territory.  Add an overweight chassis, basic suspension and the overall impression is bland.  Somewhat ill handling when you add in the well known slapping issue.  The CBF is what we called a UJM many years ago.  Clearly your reference different.  Sports tourer 🤦‍♂️

    Capable UJM  for road use and for track day training in the hands of professionals that ride the smooth Donington Park day in day out.  I’ve done the Haslam school.  As a novice you have no idea where you are going. Three 15 minute sessions merely scratch the surface.  But I learnt a lot.  But hey some fool is going declare the CBF the equivalent of the CBR 🤦‍♂️

    Sorry fella to piss on your parade.  I think you need to test ride a modern bike as you clearly are out of touch.

    Apologies, I see now and I do get it. I read the first review and skim read the second expecting it to be much of the same given the "A brilliant jack of all trades bike, Legendary Honda build quality and Detuned 'Blade engine isn't even that bad on fuel" bullet points. Schoolboy error on my part as its expected that a review on a face lift model would be more critical in part than it was on the new model. However, to put your quotes from the MCN review back into context.

    "The detuned 06 fireblade engine isn’t going to set the world on fire but its incredibly flexible, smooth power delivery and has enough grunt for two up touring and will send the new speedo past the 140mph mark[/b]."

    "The ride and comfort is excellent and the new linked ABS are very effective, like riding with a safety net, ideal in the wet. Its only when you ride out of the bike past its design parameters will you get any complaints as the pegs start to scrape and the rear is a little soft."

    When read in context hardly depicts a bland motorcycle and

    "The frame is now aluminium but the wheels and suspension remain rather basic considering the new higher price tag."

    is a quip on the price tag not the the wheels and suspension.

    The SC58 meets my expectations of what a motorcycle should be, clearly you see the SC64 as a compromise. I've most recently had extended road tests on Honda's Africa Twin and NT1100, I could probably live with either but neither will do anything I want of a motorcycle that the CBF doesn't do. I'm not a material person and don't need the latest this, that and the other, while my CBF still does what it did out of the box its a keeper.

    Enjoy yours, even though it's a compromise . Happy days
