update on the 2011 cbr 600f situation

according to a forum poster, who heard it from honda australia, it
won't be coming here. it's manufactured in europe and the high AUD$
means it won't be profitable for honda to sell it in australia. :(
but... there is top quality content farm content stating otherwise so
let's just see what happens, okay? #optimism #contentfarmssuck

You'd think that bringing in even a few bikes would be easy - no crash test compliance, no left-hand-drive to right-hand-drive rubbish, etc.

How much would it cost to bring in one yourself?

I think it's mainly just the exchange rate. To sell them their price would need to be lower than the more race specced RR bikes that are made in Japan (something like that, not sure really). To bring one in? Don't know. More effort than I could be bothered with probably.
