Other honda weirdness...
From the US Site:
WE get the Hornet 600 (badged as the "599"). Last year's model. Europe gets a new model. And last years model was inferior to last year's Fazer 600.
This year, we get the NEW FZ6, which looks like a significant leap forward over the old one. Oh, and the FZ6 will cost ~$6.3k (SV-S range), while Honda wants $7k for the Hornet? Dream on, Honda.
The 599 is DOA. You heard it here first.
Europe also gets a new version of the CB5 (CBF500) and a new 250 (CBF250). We don't, but as americans don't buy small bikes and don't have gradiated liscencing,thats not a suprise. But its interesting that Honda is really putting out the ABS in europe: the hornet 600, CBF500, CBF250, and Valadero all have available ABS.
