2016 Honda CBR600RR Review
2016 Honda CBR600RR on www.Totalmotorcycle.com
Built to Carve…
Motorcycling has always been about that perfect bond between rider and machine. Of course there’s the wind and the elements, but most of all it’s about the balance, about how involved your entire body is with every aspect of riding. And when you find the perfect bike, it moves with you just like it was an extension of yourself.
The Honda CBR600RR is that machine. Proven on the track, it fits like a glove, and is as responsive and instinctive as snapping your fingers. Happy to cut fast laps on a track day, it’s comfortable enough to use as a weekday commuter or a weekend canyon bike.
First of all, there’s 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. And it just plain looks right too, especially this year with a new Black/White option that looks like a tri-color Honda wing, but fades to grey.
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.
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.
In 2003, the Honda CBR600RR entered the World Super Sports arena and instantly changed the game.

The CBR600RR has the look of a focused track machine.
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.
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.
With over 700 total MotoGP victories, Honda’s winning heritage stands far above any other manufacturer, just as Honda’s motorcycles stand out on the street. Our superior engineering and technology put our GP bikes in the winners’ circle and give you the performance you need for the street.
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.
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.

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.

2016 Honda CBR600RR www.Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits
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.
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 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.
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 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.
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.
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 (C-ABS)
The available 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.
