    Even so, it had a three-year run as the best street superbike available. Honda wrapped the CBR in more aerodynamic bodywork, gave it new spoke wheels, worked up fresh suspension, installed a flashy digital dash and, last but not least, reworked the ECU settings.

    Honda is historically very calculated with its changes and although we were disappointed to not see an all-new CBR we have to admit this bike is good. The bottom to mid-range is punchy yet easier to handle as the throttle response is smoother in tight corners and when initiating small throttle inputs. More aggressive riders might like to have a little more power down low, but for most riders, the tradeoff for the smoothness is acceptable.

    Honda has always made streetbikes first and this is where they continue to shine. While the power was middle of the charts, the fuel economy was not.

In fact, it rated second in both the rider interface and comfort categories. The only complaint came from my less than flexible, motocross-damaged legs and knees that took issue with the short distance from the very flat seat to the tallish footpegs.

    One area where the Honda could have done better in the ranking was the instrumentation area. The new LCD screen is easy to read and conveys more information than before with a gear position indicator. The five level shift light is a nice touch and easy to see when looking down the road.
