One of the most attractive concepts we’ve seen lately is the Honda CBR600RR Repsol Carbon published at deviantart by TheUncle. Middleweight supersport models rarely benefit of such treatments so it’s good to see that someone thought at the slightly discriminated 600cc CBR. Also, there are two other bikes labeled as ‘Honda CBR600RR Concept Street Version’ and ‘Honda CBR600RR Concept Street Blu’, but those two look like a Kawasaki and a Suzuki also prepped up for the track.
Michael Schumacher was testing team’s Holzhauer Honda CBR1000RR at the Cartagena circuit in Spain when he crashed, lost conscience and had to be immediately transported to the Virgen de la Risaca hospital.
Apparently, Schumacher suffered a serious hit to the head and multiple neck contusions, but after carefully examining him, Dr. Francisco Martinez decided that Schumacher’s state doesn’t require internment, only a neck support collar.
So we’ll be seeing more of Schumacher in April when the IDM German Superbikes Championship begins.
For those who have all against motorcycle trailers (or not enough money to buy one), this picture shows the ideal solution to a biker’s riding needs during the holydays. The funny part is that the small car is a 1990s Honda CRX powered by a 1.6 litre VTEC four-cylinder engine. This develops 125 horsepower and carries the 150 horsepower Honda CBR929RR Fireblade from the starting of the new millennium.
That’s an ingenious strapping system he has there! I salute this kind of people!
Is there anything left to be said about the 2009 Honda CBR600RR? I agree with you. Nothing, except the fact that they made it look almost too refined in the promotional video destined for the European market. Or is it only the specific color schemes? Most likely and we love it.
WesllCorp have come up with a four wheel kit for motorcycles in an attempt to improve performance and implicit lap times without cutting in the pleasure that only two wheels can offer. They call it Wesll Suspension and it can be mounted both on street and off-road motorcycles. And not just any motorcycles. We’re talking about models such as the Honda CBR600RR (our favorite), Suzuki GSX-R1000 and Kawasaki ZX-10R, just to mention a few.
Featuring a maximum of 28 inches of travel, the unusual kit will transform any motorcycle into a quad. The four tires offer better grip which results into the ability to brake later before a corner and accelerate faster out of it.
Here’s a short demonstration video of the system mounted on a CBR600RR motorcycle.
Honda finds yet another way to amaze with the help of the CBR600RR. In fact, they launch a whole new model called the CBR600RR ABS which represents the result of some bright minds in Honda’s technical department.
Honda really managed to stand out in 2008 with the all-new CBR1000RR and now the bike sees a double way into the future as two versions are available for 2009: the simple Honda CBR1000RR, featuring new colors (including a Repsol Edition) and the Honda CBR1000RR ABS.
Together with the CBR600RR promo, Honda also launches the video with the same purposes for the 2009 CBR1000RR model. Also revised for 2009, the Fireblade features the Combined ABS system as the only technical novelty. Riders can choose from the HRC special edition, Repsol Race replica, Plated Black and Pearl Blue colors, but this video is dedicated to the HRC special edition which celebrates Honda’s 50 years of racing. Now that’s something!
Honda presents the official video for the 2009 CBR600RR model. The new machine features the Combined ABS system, adding an extra 10kg to the overall weight while, technically, it carries on with no other technical upgrades. Also, during the video, you’ll be seeing the shiny new color schemes as the bike is being ridden on public roads and raced on the track…or better said raced in both environments.
The scene, cut from the 1987’s 21 Jump Street series shows newbie Johnny Depp getting a motorcycle riding lesson from a track racer. One down, five up? That is not the approach towards riding! Nice attempt though.
