The CBR presents an user-friendly instrument cluster, with an easy-to-read tach and digital speedometer. Our only request would be for a gear-position indicator.

It truly is impressive how Honda has been able to build a stable bike with such radical geometry.

The Honda's aggressive rake and trail numbers (23.7 degrees, 96mm, respectively) closely mimic those of the GSX-R600, but nothing in the class can touch the CBR's ultra-stubby 53.8-inch wheelbase.

It doesn't hurt the Honda's case that this is, in our eyes, the coolest looking CBR ever. The tightly tailored bodywork looks both sleek and minimalistic at the same time, and we love how the designers have let us see some daylight peek through when looking at a profile of the bike.

It's a breakout year for the CBR. It’s not only the lightest in class, but it also possesses the most muscular powerband.

The new CBR weighs in at just 381 lbs with an empty tank, making it the lightest middleweight ever, and even less than the anorexic Triumph Daytona 675's 390 lbs.

Part of what makes the CBR appealing is its ergonomics and riding position, which received top marks from our testers.
