2004 Honda CBR600RR
MSRP $8,599

Honda CBR600RR, though it must be said it’s the Honda that has the prettier smile. Unlike the company’s previous “F” versions, the RR eschews streetbike practicality in favor of a full track-attack mode. Honda says its new CBR was developed first as a racebike, then adapted it for street use, a heretofore unheard of process.
