Overview

Honda CBR600RR 13YM

Honda’s new CBR600RR has moved the Super Sports game on. It features a race-ready Showa Big Piston Fork, which combined with new, lightweight 12-spoke wheels (similar to those on the CBR1000RR) and a revised rear shock, gives more sensitive control to further improve stability and poise on road and track. Twin radially-mounted four-piston calipers grip 310mm disc giving incredible stopping power with fingertip precision and the Electronic Combined Anti-lock Braking System (eC-ABS) delivers an extra layer of safety with zero loss of performance or control.

The compact 599cc, liquid-cooled four-cylinder engine not only drives incredibly hard to its 13,500rpm redline but is also flexible, punching out strong mid-range torque. The Programmed Dual Sequential Fuel Injection System (PGM-DSFI) has been remapped to deliver even sharper throttle response and feel, while the Intake Air Control Valve (IACV) attached to the throttle now works over the whole rev-range for much greater sensitivity and control at high rpm.

And if it looks fast, it’s because it is fast. You can see the Honda RC213V MotoGP race bike’s DNA all over the CBR600RR; the aggressive, aerodynamic fairing, twin line-beam headlights, minimalist tail unit and centre-up exhaust, echo the design of the factory race machine. Speed, distilled.
