The Honda CBR600RR – Everything You Need to Know

The wait is over with the official announcement of the new Honda CBR600RR which has sent motorcycling enthusiasts into overdrive ahead of its unveiling on August 21. Below are a few things about what we can expect and everything you need to know about the new Honda CBR600RR.

Style

First off there is the bodywork which takes elements of design from the e 1000cc superbike – Honda CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP. The headlights appear to be slimmer as well as sleek aerodynamic winglets. Adding to its cool persona is the bike’s colour scheme which is not too dissimilar to the Fireblade and includes the HRC logo.

Electronics

One of the biggest features is that the bike comes with a full TFT display which replaces the existing analogue dash. This new TFT display also includes multiple racing modes as well as power modes and Honda selectable torque control – if that isn’t enough there is wheelie and braking control.

Mechanics

Mechanically the bike follows in the footsteps of previous generations of CBR600RR with the suspension brakes and frame swing arm following a similar trend – the heel plates and pegs look the same as well. The biggest change with the bike is with the fuel tank which might have a lot to do with getting it through to a Euro5 compliant engine. Just like the CBR1000RR-R there is a tank cover that will help to reduce the emissions.

Performance

Of course, looks are great and riding this you will certainly turn heads at the traffic lights, but how is it likely to perform. Well, as expected Honda haven’t given a lot away about the power but with a Euro 5-compliant liquid-cooled 599cc engine the likelihood is that it might generate as much as 118hp of maximum power at 13,500rpm. That will be enough to take on some of the best motorcycle routes in the UK.

Price

Despite not a lot changing with the design the new Honda CBR600RR is not going to come cheap. Early indications suggest that if a European model is produced then it could retail for around £14,000. More to come when the motorbike is released August 21.

Honda are looking to assert themselves with a powerful middleweight motorcycle that will inject some sparkle into a market that has struggled over the years. The new Honda CBR600RR could make other manufacturers take notice or what can be achieved.
