Thanks to the guys at Moto-Station.

Originally written in French I have converted the pages to English using Google and saved them as a PDF attachment...

Oh crap!!I REALLY want one!! :cry :banghead


Did you notice this? -
French version: 106 hp power. (78 kW), torque NC
That's LESS then the Hornet 900 we have.(110 - 80)







(Anyone else think it was like reading one of Rad's posts on Bikehackers??) :)

Thanks for the info man, been searching all over for as much as I can get. Bit late now as I already ordered one back in December..........
Any idea when they are arriving? I had a delivery date of the 1st of March (HA!) but now I'm being told June or even July. They can't even tell me the cost yet!

I'm pretty sure that's the limit, yeah, so never buy a French import, cos you'll be spending cash to get it up on power once you've got it home

Yeah I did notice that about the french model.... and we think we have it bad in the UK.... shame the french have all those fantastically built roads but their enjoyment is restricted :(

In the UK we get the FREE model... which made me laugh because that's the first time I have heard of something in the UK being FREE :lol

:lol :lol :lol at the Rad posting comments :clap

Note the quoted seat height... that is high.... very high... do you think someone at Honda has done that as a sick joke to get at JJON :lol ;)

We've known it was 828mm for a long time now in fairness (I refer you to the brochure). My instructor is a little short and his ZX9R has been lowered already. He can't get on a bike this tall so will not be having one. Not really a problem for me at 5ft11 :thumbup

It's amazing that it's so high though yet the bike looks so small, don't you think?

One of the reviews mentioned that the seat was high but the thin tank seemed to give longer legs.


I'm sold!!!!!! :love

It does indeed (give you longer legs). I am 1.72 and I could put one foot down flat. Never felt like I was on a tall bike. :thumbup

Yeah, that's going to be a relief to a whole host of riders. I know a few who want one but were put off by the high seat height. Personally I'm only a shade under 6ft so I've little to worry about (can almost get both feet flat to the ground on the Hornet) but how many people won't bother to try one on for size just because of the official figures?
