But even the mighty Gixxer was no match for this season's Most Likely To Succeed, the Honda CBR600RR. The tester's logs were a revelation. Never before have so many different riders, from so many different backgrounds, all arrived at the same word-PERFECT-to describe the CBR600RR's attributes. Street or track, that word appeared over and over again to describe the comfortable ergos, muscular powerplant, composed chassis, excellent suspension and brakes, light controls and more. Few bikes we've tested have possessed such a perfect balance of outright competence and all-around accessibility as Honda's latest-and finest-CBR600RR, moving it squarely to the head of this class.
