Default is the 2011 and above CBR600F that rare??

I'm finding it difficult and increasingly frustrating to find information about these bikes..
You'd think they only sold 100 worldwide and about 95 of the owners don't wish to discuss anything about the bike.
It seems everything I'm looking for can't be found, but instead I find a wealth of information for the older versions of this bike.

Do any of you have a source of information for these bikes? just little "how to" or anything of the sort? if so, please share.

Thanks

Same here mate. When I was looking for details of changing down pipes and removing the cat, was nothing. It's the same for parts. I hardly find anything!

yeah, I hear you... very frustrating. if I was mechanically minded, I'd have a youtube channel just showing everything needed. that would definitely help.

To the best of my knowledge, the new 600f was only released in Europe. Without it being in the North American market, the number of units on the road will be a small fraction of what it could be.

I'd just like to see what mods are available or have been done on them. There aren't many parts available. Even trying to get hold of replacement parts is a pain.

Yea I was just looking at this picture and I was gonna say I dont think we have that here. After it was phased out in 2006. The next iteration is the 14 650F. *Looks* Yea made in italy for the Euro market. for 2 years. Looks cool though. Very small number of made I would imagine. You know what that means though. Be the first!

makes total sense now that you explain it that way.

I'd gladly be the first if I was mechanically minded and not in fear of breaking it down then not being able to put it back and having the bike stranded. I guess I better grow a pair and tackle it head on.

I have had my 2011 blue and white F for a year. In all that time I have only seen 2 on the road. Despite its sunning good looks, especially once the silencer has been junked, it simply didn't catch on. There were no rave reviews, only comparisons with the older models. My 2004 F was lighter , faster, had fully adjustable suspension and had loads of available extras. But I prefer the 2011 , its got plenty of power for the road, nice midrange and better mpg. Its a shame, but we are riding something a bit more exclusive these days.
