Passed my mod 2 last week and want to upgrade from Yamaha YBR125 as I have a daily 50 mile round commute, mostly on dual carriageway. Bike will only be used for this only so I want a rock-solid, low maintenance, all weather workhorse. The Honda CBF500 seems universally praised, is suitable and in budget. However it's been superceded by the CBF600.. There's more of these about but it doesn't seem so well thought of, so what's the deal?
£2,5k for a 2008 600 with 5,500 on the clock,
£3k for a 2007 500 with 9k miles.
the 500 seems to have held it's value suggesting it's a better buy.
