On paper the cbr650f sounds fantastic for its performance, price and fuel economy. One gripe I do have with the bike is the styling and that the single headlight does not fit with the demographic its aimed at. As the bike was designed by young engineers its intended audience would then be concluded to be young riders and as a young rider I would of personally loved to see a bike that was beefier than a CBR500 but 1 step down from its 600 race replica but still maintaining the aggressive styling of the bike.

His concerns were quite reasonable and yet no action took place to make the situation safe. Also he should not of had to move the pallets to the back of the truck as forklifts can gain access to the side of a curtain truck without any difficulty.
