I got a chance to sit on it once,It looks tough to sit,but you can sit easily,its got titanium exhusts i think,which cool down with in 30sec's as the bike is shut off,neither they reach to blistering temperatures aswell.There is nothing to hold on too,and this bike has tremendous torque it seemed.If your not alert the bike pickup can take you by surprise.its awesome fun.

If you bend and look under the bike, you will see a fan that throws out the heat from the exhausts and cools them down.

i sumhow dont really like the mt01's rear and the silencer.even if it is not hot, it is a burden for the pillion at all times.it should have been kept a single seater wth such silencers

spotted this CBR F3 ad in Bikez with a 555 number in Nagpur. Remember someone was asking a question about SBK in Nagpur. Any idea, buddy?

95 Honda CBR 600 F3 for Sale at Bikez Free Motorcycle Classifieds

(Mods - please remove the link if it doesn't adhere to the forum policies. I'm not sure about this one).

Does anyone knows any SBK sale in NCR with Delhi number, budget is around 3L. Prefer Honda 600, or Yamaha R6.

Sam, at best you could possibly find yourself a late 90s fazer 600 with a bikini fairing. For the newer crop you are looking at a minimum 5L with decent papers to go with.
