2016 Honda CBR600RR

If you’re a Moto2 fan, the 2016 Honda CBR600RR is the closest you are going to get to riding one of those racebikes. Sure, there is still a big gap, but it is fun to play Walter Mitty with the liquid-cooled, DOHC, 599cc powerplant.

Other features include a Honda Electronic Steering Damper, Combined Anti-Lock Braking System (a $1000 option), 41mm inverted Showa Big Piston Forks, fully adjustable suspension, dual-stage ram-air induction and fuel injection, and ergonomics that are reasonably comfortable on the street.
