A Honda 919 from the United States.

The 2000-2006 Honda CB900F, also called the Hornet in Europe or the 919 in the United States, is a motorcycle powered by a liquid-cooled, fuel-injected 919cc in-line 4-stroke 4-cylinder DOHC engine that produces just over 100 horsepower (75kW) and weighs 427lb (194kg) dry. The bike has a six-speed transmission. Its suspension consists of a front cartridge fork (adjustable beginning in 2004) and a rear single shock. Its brakes are dual-disc in the front and single-disc in the rear. The rake is 25°, trail is 98mm, wheelbase is 1460.5mm, and seat height is 800.1mm. The engine is based on the unit from the Honda CBR900RR.

As a sport-oriented motorcycle that provides an upright riding position and lacks a fairing, it is considered a standard or "naked bike". Honda have had a CB900 model since 1981.

Related is a 599cc carburetted version called the CB600F (Hornet).
