2014 Honda CBR600RR Review

2014 Honda CBR600RR on Totalmotorcycle.com

The CBR600RR’s spec sheet reads like a racer’s wishlist, but its street credentials are equally impressive. Track or street the CBR600RR delivers…

A modern sportbike can be an uncompromising thing. Tuned for maximum performance, things like comfort, ease of use and everyday practicality tend to go out the window. Not so with the CBR600R, from the beginning these very traits were carefully included in the overall concept. There’s no arguing the CBR600RR ABS’s performance credentials have been at the front of the battle for 600 class race supremacy since its introduction; in fact, it just won the Canadian National Championship for the third year in a row. But perhaps even more impressive than its long list of race and championship wins is its reputation on the street as a completely functional everyday bike with excellent durability. Perhaps it’s this reputation for durability that lead to the CBR600’s engine being selected as the basis the Moto 2 World Championship racing machines.

CBR600RR ABS – Track or street

A masterpiece of race-bred engineering, the CBR600RR ABS has continually raised the bar in both track and road performance. Its ultra-light weight, mass centralisation and compact chassis ensure that its blistering power is balanced by easy, natural handling and faultless road manners. Its potent engine delivers immediate, exhilarating torque, while its fairing is aggressively aerodynamic, enhances stability and allows maximum enjoyment of the machines performance.Radially-mounted four-piston caliper front disc brakes give it sensational stopping power, while the ABS version features the revolutionary Honda electronically-controlled Combined ABS, which delivers all the benefits of ABS in a system designed specifically for Super Sports riders.

•599cc liquid-cooled inline four-cylinder

•Honda Electronic Steering Damper

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.

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.

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.

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.

Honda Electronic Steering Damper

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 more importantly it 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.

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.

Electronic Combined Anti-Lock Braking System (C-ABS)

All-new, electronically controlled C-ABS distributes brake force over both wheels, helping to maintain braking confidence in less-than-ideal conditions. The system electronically measures rider input on the brake lever and pedal, and applies only the front or rear brake in some cases or combines both brakes in other situations.



2014 Honda CBR600RR Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits


Superior power-to-weight ratio for outstanding acceleration and handling..
Liquid-cooled DOHC 16-valve 599 cc four-stroke inline four-cylinder engine features oversquare bore and stroke of 67 mm x 42.5 mm..
High-revving engine redlines at 15,000 rpm..
Oil jets beneath the piston provide additional friction reduction and cooling..
Iridium-tip sparkplugs improve fuel combustion and performance..
The Dual Stage Fuel Injection (DSFI) system features 40 mm throttle bodies and two injectors per cylinder — one upper and one lower — controlled by an electronic control system (ECU) that senses rpm and throttle opening. Lower injector enhances rideability while upper injector improves top-end horsepower..
Denso 12-hole injectors deliver finely atomized fuel mixture for optimum combustion efficiency and power..
The Intake Air Control Valve (IACV) minimizes torque reaction and smoothes response to small throttle changes through gradual reductions of air and fuel intake when the throttle is opened and closed..
Auto enrichment system is integrated into programmed fuel injection (PGM-FI) module, eliminating the need for a manual choke..
Non-resonance knock sensor maintains optimum spark advance while constantly monitoring combustion performance during mid- to high-speed operation..
Two-stage ram-air system provides high volume of cool air to the airbox for linear power delivery and incredible engine performance..
Cylinder head features angled valve insets to improve airflow..
Cylinder head features two springs per intake valve and one spring per exhaust valve for optimum high-rpm valve operation and durability..
Direct shim-under-bucket valve actuation ensures high-rpm performance and durability..
Lightweight forged-aluminum pistons incorporate special shot peening for added toughness..
Lightweight magnesium head cover..
Lightweight stainless steel four-into-one exhaust features an inline-exhaust valve to control exhaust pressure for maximum performance..

Right-side starter gears allow increased lean angle..
Smooth-shifting close-ratio six-speed transmission is closely matched to the engine’s powerband..
MotoGP-style centre-up exhaust system..



Fine Die-Cast (FDC) frame uses four large castings for light weight..
The Showa Big Piston fork features a larger damping volume to effectively reduce the hydraulic pressure generated as the fork legs compress and extend. The result is more precise action during the initial stroke and smoother damping action for improved handling, enhanced front-end feedback, and a more solid feel during hard braking..
Unit Pro-Link rear suspension system is patterned after RC213V MotoGP racer. In this two-piece shock system, the upper shock mount is contained within the swingarm rather than the frame. With no top frame mount for the shock, this unique system reduces negative suspension energy from being transmitted into the frame, allowing optimum frame rigidity and improved rideability out of corners..
Small and light Honda Electronic Steering Damper (HESD) enhances stability..
Braking system features twin four-piston radial-mounted front calipers, dual 310 mm front discs and a single 220 mm rear disc for optimum stopping power..
