2017 Honda CBR600RR Review

2017 Honda CBR600RR on www.Totalmotorcycle.com

Track proven. Canyon approved...

The lineage behind the CBR600RR boasts ongoing track-tested, championship-winning advancements in form and function that have kept this machine at the forefront of the 600cc Supersport class. The 2017 CBR600RR delivers strong engine, front suspension featuring Honda's 41mm Big Piston Fork for exceptional handling and supple action, plus MotoGP-inspired bodywork that's a product of race-tested aerodynamic design. It all adds up to a sport bike that leads the way, whether it's at the track or just a fun afternoon ride on twisty back roads.

Some bikes are so expertly designed, they become an extension of the rider.

The Honda CBR600RR is that machine. It’s the perfect bike to use as a weekday commuter, a weekend canyon bike and of course, cutting laps on the track.

There are a lot of reasons it’s so good at so much. Starting with its size. Compact, light, a tribute to Honda’s understanding of mass centralization, the four-cylinder engine revs like nothing you’ve ever ridden, unless you’ve ridden a MotoGP racer. The chassis (an aluminum twin-spar design) is the basis of the CBR600RR’s laser-sharp handling. Brakes? You can choose between its conventional triple-disc setup or opt for a special version with Honda’s revolutionary Combined Anti-Lock Braking System (C-ABS), the first ever on a production Supersport motorcycle.

Bred to win.

Honda’s new CBR600RR has moved the Super Sport game on. Its razor-sharp handling, pinpoint accuracy and incredible power delivery are certain to make a difference to your ride.

Live for this moment

You can see the Honda RC213V MotoGP racer’s DNA all over the new CBR600RR...

The aggressive fairing, twin line-beam headlights, minimalist tail unit and centre-up exhaust. But what makes the CBR600RR truly special is how it performs. When the twist of the throttle is timed to perfection and the engine screams in harmony with your soul. When all of the sounds of the world are nothing but a whisper on the wind around you. When machine and rider are one. Live for this moment.

Raw power tamed in an instant

And if it looks fast, it’s because it is fast!

The 599cc, liquid-cooled four-cylinder engine not only drives incredibly hard to its redline, but is also flexible, punching out strong mid-range torque. Its remapped Programmed Dual Sequential Fuel Injection system (PGM-DSFI) delivers even sharper throttle response and feel, while the IACV (Intake Air Control Valve) now works at all rpm, for much greater sensitivity and control. It’s as if your right hand is directly hard-wired into this engine.

Racing DNA

In 2003, the Honda CBR600RR entered the World Super Sports arena and instantly changed the game.

It has been the Super Sports weapon of choice for 10 years, taking 7 World Championship titles and 9 Manufacturer’s World titles. We take our learnings from the track and apply them to our production bikes, and the 2013 CBR600RR is no exception.

Racing lines

Beautifully clean, the CBR600RR’s aerodynamic package is derived from Honda’s MotoGP race machines, with clear references to the current RC213V. Its lines echo the design of the factory race machine. It not only reduces drag but also improves stability and provides excellent wind protection. Speed, distilled.

No matter if it’s on the track or the street, the 2017 CBR600RR is a winner. Without a doubt, the definitive 600cc Supersport.


A Winner on the Track and Street.

We’re not going to tell you that your new CBR600RR can go up against MotoGP World Champion Marc Marquez’s Honda RC213V, but we will tell you that there’s plenty of technology proven on the track built into every Honda sportbike engine and chassis. And the CBR600RR is no exception.


Honda Electronic Steering Damper (HESD)

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.

Options & Pricing

Honda’s 600-class sportbikes are one of the best choices a rider has ever had. They’ve always offered a near-magical combination of handling, power, compact size and overall performance. And the CBR600RR is clearly the best 600 we’ve ever offered, especially since you can get one with our revolutionary Combined ABS. There’s no room for second-best in this class, and the CBR600RR is a standout performer both on and off the track.

Engine/Drivetrain
•Centrally located ram-air intake system delivers midrange power and good throttle response in the high-rpm range.

Chassis/Suspension
•The 41mm Showa Big Piston Fork (BPF) features a large damper piston that generates damping forces at low internal pressures to allow for smooth, responsive fork action. Adjustable for spring preload plus compression and rebound damping.
•Unit Pro-Link® rear suspension.
•Using knowledge gained from the Honda RC212V MotoGP race program, the aerodynamic design allows minimal drag. The development and testing used with this CBR600RR bodywork, in turn, led to aerodynamic advancements that were incorporated into the RC213V.
•This aerodynamic efficiency lends itself to agile handling and good wind deflection for enhanced rider comfort.

 

 

 

2017 Honda CBR600RR www.Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits


Unit Pro-Link® Suspension

By eliminating the frame-mounted top shock mount; Unit Pro-Link isolates the chassis from bumps, resulting in more precise handling and better traction. Developed on Honda’s championship-winning MotoGP bikes, it’s a perfect example of the CBR’s superior engineering.


Centrally Located Fuel Tank

The CBR600RR’s 4.8-gallon fuel tank is positioned in the center of the chassis and low in the frame. This allows for a more compact design, but even more important helps centralize the bike’s mass. Increased mass centralization means the CBR is more responsive to rider input, especially when leaning the bike into a turn or standing it up at the exit.


Honda Electronic Steering Damper

Most steering dampers only sense handlebar-deflection speed. The Honda Electronic Steering Damper (HESD) is way more sophisticated. It also detects vehicle speed, and adjusts damping proportionally. That helps maintain low-speed maneuverability while providing excellent, predictable high-speed handling.


Dual-Stage Fuel Injection

Two sets of injectors per cylinder ensure both low- and high-rpm performance. You get near-instantaneous high-rpm response, along with great low-rpm metering and clean running.


Dual-Stage Ram Air

A nose-mounted, two-stage ram air system provides a high volume of cool air to the air box for linear power delivery and superb engine performance.


Line-beam headlights

Line-beam headlights feature a two-piece reflector design that utilizes two H7 bulbs for optimum light distribution and unique compact design. The result: the headlight helps you see better and also helps make you visible to traffic.


Honda Multi-Action System (HMAS) Inverted Fork

The HMAS cartridge fork features an exclusive internal piston construction. The innovative design employs smaller-diameter pistons to keep oil velocity high for improved damping characteristics and an expanded range of adjustability. The result: you get more precise suspension performance, especially over smaller surface irregularities.


Radial Mounted Front-Brake Calipers

The CBR600RR uses radial-mounted monoblock front-brake calipers. This construction makes the caliper stiffer, and that means you get better brake feel for more linear, powerful stopping. Each caliper also uses four chromium-plated aluminum pistons for smooth, friction-free operation.
12-Spoke Wheels

With their consistent rigidity and balance, these sharp-looking 12-spoke cast aluminum wheels work with the fork and enhance suspension feedback to deliver real handling improvements.
