Honda’s New CBR600RR Middleweight Is The Right Weight
If ever there was a perfect balance between man and machine, it has to be this. Just a thought, and it changes direction. Another thought, and it launches you into the next turn. Think again and it slows, and just about finds the next apex itself.
Honda’s incredible CBR600RR is the machine of champions, of course. But it’s much more than that. It’s a stellar streetbike, maybe the best ever built. Because it’s just as happy to take you to class, to your job or on a weekend ride as it is to carve a corner at Laguna Seca or Road Atlanta. That balance between performance and handling continues all throughout this machine: engine, chassis, suspension, brakes. And speaking of brakes, you can opt for a special version with Honda’s revolutionary Combined Anti-Lock Braking System (C-ABS), the first ever on a production Supersport motorcycle.

The compact HESD helps maintain predictable high-speed handling and low-speed maneuverability. Way more sophisticated than a simple fixed-rate damper, it’s one of the keys to the CBR600RR’s extraordinary handling.
The CBR600RR’s Combined Anti-Lock Braking System (C-ABS) is the first of its kind on a Supersport machine. Even the most critical motorcycle testers rave about how well they work. Find out what the experts have to say about this revolutionary feature.
The CBR600RR has been honed to perfection on racetracks all over the world and has impeccable racing credentials—in fact, its engine was chosen to be the basis of the Moto2 class in Grand Prix racing.
