Honda CBF600S ABS

The Honda CBF600S ABS is now available to Canadian riders who want a bike that's loaded with everything they need for years of riding fun. Proven on the tight city streets, twisty mountain passes and wide-open autobahns of Europe, the CBF600S ABS boasts a fuel-injected engine that has been specially tuned for extra low-end torque and smooth, user-friendly power delivery. It's cradled in a beautifully sculpted aluminum frame that contributes to the CBF600S ABS's sure handling and light weight. The seat height is comfortably low, and it's adjustable so you can be sure it'll fit you perfectly. And with standard Combined Braking System with ABS (Anti-lock Braking System), you can ride with added confidence.

The semi-Naked CBF600S is renowned for its ability to deliver comfort, performance and ease of handling in all kinds of situations. Crowned by a beautifully integrated, frame-mounted cowl that offers wind protection at higher speeds, it has its own distinctive and aerodynamic elegance.

With a compact fuel-injected engine based on the one powering the race-winning CBR600RR, it is capable of powerful acceleration. Its powerband is wide and easily accessible, offering a smooth ride with plenty of thrills when required.

The engine is housed in a lightweight, rigid die-cast aluminium frame that contributes to sharp and responsive handling. The seat is adjustable with a smooth, narrow shape that provides superior comfort and an easy reach to the ground for any rider.

The suspension systems are also adjustable offering a comfortably tailored all-round riding package.

Braking is smooth and powerful, and the Combined ABS offers the extra reassurance of Honda’s Combined Antilock Braking System.

The 20L fuel tank provides touring range and the motorcycle’s strong seat rail accommodates the easy mounting of optional luggage. Its practical instrument panel features HISS and FI indicators, a fuel
gauge and an ABS indicator.

Fun to ride, eager to tackle any task and offering a comfortable ride, the CBF600S is a reliable partner on any road, in any weather.


Lightweight and compact fuel-injected 599cc inline-four engine is tuned for the most comfortable balance of performance and ease of use.

Combined Braking System with ABS provides both the operating ease of linked brakes and the control of an advanced Anti-lock Braking System.

Advanced die-cast aluminium frame keeps weight to a minimum while maintaining optimal stability for confident and sporty handling.

Compliant 41mm telescopic front fork and Monoshock rear damper deliver smooth, confident handling.

Sleek half fairing features air-directing ports that deflect air around you for better comfort while also enabling lighter, easier handling.
