PERFORMANCE. HANDLING. BALANCE. PERFECTED.
Honda’s CBR600RR is about one thing: Performance. And we’re not just talking just speed. We’re talking about that elusive balance between power, handling, and braking. Taking the lead from our MotoGP racing heritage, this bike is a true reflection of Honda’s technical prowess. It’s light, compact, nimble and ideally-balanced, with a four-cylinder engine that revs like nothing you’ve ever ridden. And an aluminum twin-spar designed chassis that delivers laser-sharp handling. So whether you ride it on the street, carve up your favorite canyon road or tackle track days -- get ready to discover just how good a 600 supersport can be.
RADIAL MOUNTED FRONT-BRAKE CALIPERS
The CBR600RR uses radial-mounted monoblock front-brake calipers. This construction makes the caliper stiffer, and that means you get better brake feel for more linear, powerful stopping. Each caliper also uses four chromium-plated aluminum pistons for smooth, friction-free operation.
With their consistent rigidity and balance, these sharp-looking 12-spoke cast aluminum wheels work with the fork and enhance suspension feedback to deliver real handling improvements.
ELECTRONIC COMBINED ANTI-LOCK BRAKING (C-ABS)
The available electronically controlled C-ABS distributes brake force over both wheels, helping to maintain braking confidence in less-than-ideal conditions. The system electronically measures rider input on the brake lever and pedal, and applies only the front or rear brake in some cases or combines both brakes in other situations.
Line-beam headlights feature a two-piece reflector design that utilizes two H7 bulbs for optimum light distribution and unique compact design. The result: the headlight helps you see better and also helps make you visible to traffic.
CENTRALLY LOCATED FUEL TANK
Superbikes can deliver a great deal of back-torque through the driveline, upsetting handling—not the CBR1000RR models. Its Honda-designed assisted slipper clutch is the same type used on our MotoGP bikes. The design does away with the need for heavy clutch springs, ensuring full power transmission with smooth shifting and a light clutch pull at the lever.
Honda ELECTRONIC STEERING DAMPER (HESD)
Most steering dampers only sense handlebar-deflection speed. The Honda Electronic Steering Damper (HESD) is way more sophisticated. It also detects vehicle speed, and adjusts damping proportionally. That helps maintain low-speed maneuverability while providing excellent, predictable high-speed handling.
Honda MULTI-ACTION SYSTEM (HMAS) INVERTED FORK
The HMAS cartridge fork features an exclusive internal piston construction. The innovative design employs smaller-diameter pistons to keep oil velocity high for improved damping characteristics and an expanded range of adjustability. The result: you get more precise suspension performance, especially over smaller surface irregularities.
UNIT PRO-LINK® SUSPENSION
By eliminating the frame-mounted top shock mount, Unit Pro-Link® isolates the chassis from bumps, resulting in more precise handling and better traction. Developed on Honda’s championship-winning MotoGP bikes, it’s a perfect example of the CBR’s superior engineering.
DUAL-STAGE FUEL INJECTION
Two sets of injectors per cylinder ensure both low- and high-rpm performance. You get near-instantaneous high-rpm response, along with great low-rpm metering and clean running.
DUAL-STAGE RAM AIR
A nose-mounted, two-stage ram air system provides a high volume of cool air to the air box for linear power delivery and superb engine performance.
