SERIOUS ENGINEERING. SERIOUS CONTENDER.
Bred from MotoGP engineering, the Honda CBR600RR is designed to tear up the track and make scenic canyons truly breathtaking. It's light, compact, nimble and ideally-balanced. At it's heart is a four-cylinder engine, mounted in an aluminum twin-spar chassis that delivers laser-precise handling. And for stopping power, you have the choice of a conventional triple-disc setup or a specialized version of Honda’s revolutionary Combined Anti-Lock Braking System (C-ABS), an industry first on a production Supersport motorcycle. Track, canyon or street, our CBR600RR is ready to rule.
CENTRALLY LOCATED FUEL TANK
The CBR600RR’s 4.8-gallon fuel tank is positioned in the center of the chassis and low in the frame. This allows for a more compact design, but even more important helps centralize the bike’s mass. Increased mass centralization means the CBR is more responsive to rider input, especially when leaning the bike into a turn or standing it up at the exit.
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.
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.
