Totally new from the ground up, Honda’s dynamic CBR600RR launches a blistering assault on road and track with a breathtaking new, aerodynamically designed race-ready form; a smaller, lighter and more powerful new 600cc Dual Sequential Fuel Injected inline-4 engine; a slimmer and lighter weight new Fine Die-Cast aluminum frame; and an impressive list of high-performance features which all come together to herald the arrival of the electrifying new champion of the mid-displacement Super Sports class.
