The 2002 Honda CB 900 F or the 919 as it's typically referred to, is one of the most enjoyable bikes you can ride on a budget. This is a bike that offers real world perfomance, a great seating position and a very fun bike no matter where you point it towards on the road. From the daily commute to the weekend trips in the twisites the Honda 919 brings it all to the table. The naked bike category has taken off everywhere, and now just about everyone has a bike to offer. But as you can see this bike is a pillar of excellence in the house of "naked" sport bikes. To compete with Yamaha's FZ1 and Kawasaki's ZRX1200R, Ducati's Monster, MV's Brutale, and everyone else's naked, Honda brought out the 919. Big Red's nimble, naked bike comes with a fuel-injected engine and a design concept crammed with high-tech goodies. Honda applied other modifications that make the engine even better for a wider range of use in a Standard bike. With the changes rendered by new intake ports, different cams, a lower compression ratio, fuel injection, a shorter final ratio, and the catalytic converter, the bike runs as nimbly as a hornet on steroids. Just open the throttle a little over idling speed and the 919 responds with smooth but good torque. From midrange revs on, the rear tire bites harder into the asphalt and pulls the bike and rider up to five-digit numbers on the tach before the rev cutter jumps in and does its job. All of this happens with an ease that guarantees trouble-free operation even for beginners. Other pleasing aspects include the light-shift gearbox and the wonderful sonorities the two high pipes produce. Fans of Standard bikes like the way these bikes show off their technology by missing any fairing bodywork. The 919 is a very good representation of this because it engages the right frame concept. Like the Hornet 600 in Europe, this big brother uses a strong backbone frame. The steel unit doesn't involve any down tubes to hide the view to the engine and Honda's technicians also covered ugly wiring harnesses and placed the water hoses for the cooling system out of sight. The 43-mm fork in the front, and an aluminum swingarm with a single shock in the rear, generate a comfortable ride. Good suspension damping stabilizes the bike exactly the way you need it for faster speeds. When the first curves appear, you can't believe you're riding a motorcycle with more than 900cc displacement. The wet-weight of 218 kg (484 lb.), the short wheelbase of 1,460 mm (57.5 in.), a 65-degree rake, and the trail of 99 mm allow the bike to turn as easily as a 600. And with the wide handlebars, the 919 handles even better than lighter Supersports. This handling advantage is derived from the leverage the bars provide and a relaxed seating position with nice, narrow fuel-tank indentations for your upper legs. Just a great bike all around, and from the moment you thumb the starter, you will be smiling. Like all our bikes this will be fully serviced, inspected and detailed at the time you take delivery.
