2010 Honda CBR600RRA
The amazing Honda CBR600RRA combines radical performance with everyday practicality in a way that you have to experience to believe. With most 600s, you get either a great track bike that’s high-strung and uncomfortable on the street, or a great streetbike that lacks the right stuff for track days or race wins. With the CBR600RRA, we found a way to achieve superior track and street performance in one amazing bike. To top it off, this versatile motorcycle comes standard with Honda’s innovative ¬Electronically Controlled Combined ABS — the first Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) designed specifically for the unique demands of sportbikes.
Features and Benefits
Class-leading 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.
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.
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.
Double-pivot tensioner for cam-chain durability.
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.
41 mm inverted HMAS cartridge front fork features spring preload, rebound and compression damping adjustability for precise action.
Unit Pro-Link rear suspension system is patterned after RC211V 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.
The CBR600RRA comes with the world’s first Electronically Controlled Combined ABS for sportbikes. This innovative system combines the benefits of anti-lock brakes and linked front and rear brakes to improve both braking control and safety — all without interfering with cornering ability or other aspects of sport performance. The system measures rider input on both the front brake lever and rear brake pedal (plus data from other sensors), then using sophisticated electronics and two separate power units, generates up to the maximum braking force on both wheels while also preventing wheel lockup. An innovative stroke simulator helps to maintain the same sort of feel at the brake lever and pedal as you’re used to. Combine this with the small size and weight of the components, and you have one amazing system. Full braking performance immediately available, giving you that extra peace of mind.
Braking system features twin four-piston radial-mounted monoblock front calipers, dual 310 mm front discs and a single 220 mm rear disc for optimum stopping power.
Vertical-piston master-cylinder system produces superior leverage ratio at the front brake lever for higher braking efficiency with excellent feel and controllability. This layout permits the use of a longer brake lever, which means more braking force with less effort from the rider.Additional Features
Slim turn-signal indicators and fairing design.
Industry-leading ergonomic design features maximum rider comfort for minimum fatigue in various riding conditions.
Centrally mounted fuel tank is positioned low in the frame, increasing mass centralization and allowing a more compact design.
Plastic tank shell cover protects tank and airbox.
Line-beam headlights feature three-piece reflector design utilizing two H7 bulbs for optimum light distribution and a unique compact design.
Instrumentation is very compact and features LCD panel with tachometer, odometer, twin tripmeters speedometer, fuel gauge and clock.
Attractive hollow-spoke aluminum-alloy wheels feature race-spec 3.5 x 17-inch front and 5.5 x 17-inch rear dimensions.
One-piece fan assembly for maximum cooling efficiency.
Optional seat cowl.
Compact rear cowl storage compartment for U-type locking devices (lock not included) under the passenger seat.
Pivoting, aerodynamic mirrors.
Integrated ignition-switch/fork lock for added security.
Convenient push-to-cancel turn-signal switch.
1 year, unlimited mileage, freely transferable warranty.
