There's a 4-bike comparo in the latest Motorcyclist that has the CB against nakeds from Yamaha, Suzuki, and Kawasaki. Although the bikes are not ranked, I would say they have our CB tied with the FZ09, behind the Suzuki and ahead of the Kawi. They called it the "Gentleman's Choice" and gave it high marks for chassis and fit/finish. Not bad for a bike that hasn't seen an update in almost a decade.

Some of what I say may go against your own thoughts and may seem harsh, targeted and malicious.
This is not my intention – I am simply using my experience, including other peoples, as a way of debating and giving advice - of which there is no guarantee that it's correct
