Honda CBF1000 - 2011 Onwards
 
Long shot, ive never seen one here.



looking at cbf 1000 in uk , anyone in Dublin got one i can have a gawk at for a few mins any evening ?


( its a bike to [I]stop gap[/I] me for a few months til i decide what i want to get long term in this category )

they werent really too popular due to price and a measily 100 bhp, but it will do me for the moment.

Had the 2009 GT version and it was a super bike if its only a stop gap there is plenty of the older models at excellent prices/condition/mileage available across the water.

There is a CBF1000 bookface group that you could ask if there is one in Dublin. BTW I've never seen the new model either in Ireland :thumbsup2::thumbsup2:

'Measly', 'Stop-Gap', 'Heap of Shite'

Way to butter up owners into giving you a shot :bag::lbhbh:

So then, was it the owners rather than the bikes being derided? :bag:

Beautiful bike. I don't get why they discontinued all the CBFs. They're a very unique combination of things I need/like. Maybe I'm too different from the masses :)

id agree, i had a smaller 2010 FI version from new a few yrs ago, great bike, just needed suspension upgrade. i dont think honda seen the market, but the cbf1000's were assembled in italy afaik ( and the cbf600's in spain) , the mind boggles.

I ran a poll in the CBF600S club on FB and it turned out all the bikes were assembled in Italy.

I ran a Poll too ~ very regimented, unstable in the saddle and too high maintenance, moving back to bikes - the CBF1000 is a seriously underrated motorcycle, great midrange for dashing around while commuting and filtering / overtaking with enough power that you wont be left sitting on a backroad blast, a louder pipe (sounds like a sewing machine) and spacers in the front forks to compress the springs & reduce dive on the brakes is all they really need, there's good ground clearance and for a touring sized bike can carry a lot of corner speed and are surprising good fun on twisty roads, I've a Leo Vince Zaurst there somewhere if you want it.

Think I have an OEM luggage rack for the topbox and panniers too, always meant to get another CBF but unlikely to now.
