2011 Honda CBR600RR
The Perfect Blend of Performance, Handling, and Desire.
No other 600cc machine has won more magazine comparisons and AMA championships than Honda’s CBR600RR. Striking the ideal balance of power and handling, the new CBR600RR blends a light and compact chassis with impeccable power delivery for a combination that’s hard to beat. Also available with the Honda’s unique Combined ABS for the pinnacle of sportbike braking performance, the 2011 CBR600RR continues to set the standard for the middleweight class.
Is Honda’s CBR600RR the perfect sportbike? Plenty of riders think so. And it’s easy to see why. First off, it offers a near magical combination of light weight, free-revving power, compliant suspension and all in a package that’s sized just right.
Next, the CBR600RR has been honed to perfection on the track, where it dominates the World Supersport championship scene. And then there’s the CBR’s awe-inspiring degree of Honda technology: tuned twin-spar frame, Programmed fuel injection, the Honda Electronic Steering Damper (HESD) and Honda’s available Combined ABS that all add up to put the CBR600RR way ahead of anything in the 600 class.
But at the end of the day, one thing stands out above all the rest: The CBR600RR is just a blast to ride. And isn’t that why you’re looking at sportbikes in the first place?
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.

The CBR600RR’s Combined ABS is the first of its kind on a Supersport machine. The experts are unanimous: brakes like these are a huge step forward. They love them, and you’re going to love them even more. Find out how this revolutionary feature works.
Honda Electronic Steering Damper
Compact, unobtrusive and there when you need it, the Honda Electronic Steering Damper (HESD) helps maintain smoothly predictable high-speed handling and low-speed maneuverability. It’s a huge breakthrough in predictable, responsive handling.
A Leader on the track and off
The CBR600RR flat out OWNS the World Supersport Championship. Follow Honda’s string of victories and catch up on Team Honda’s racing highlights, including classes like MotoGP and Moto2 as well.
Combined Anti-Lock Braking (C-ABS) – All-new, electronically controlled Combined ABS distributes brake force over both wheels, helping to maintain braking confidence in less than ideal conditions. Electronic measurement of rider input on each brake lever permits application of only the front or rear brake in some cases, while the system combines both brakes in others.
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 centrally located fuel tank increases mass centralization for a more compact frame design.
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.
Line-beam Headlights – Line-beam headlight features two-piece reflector design utilizing 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.
Ram Air – Wind resistance is a sportbike’s enemy. The CBR600RR takes that high-pressure air and channels it through the ram air ducts mounted under the fairing’s chin to help boost engine performance.
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’s radial-mounted monoblock front-brake calipers are stiffer, for better brake feel and performance. Each caliper uses four chromium-plated aluminum pistons that squeeze lightweight 310mm floating discs for exceptional stopping power.
