2016 Honda CBR600RR
Zero's latest electric dual sport motorcycle makes its case for space in the garage.
Honda redesigns its Gold Wing from the ground up for 2018
Motorcycling has always been about that perfect bond between rider and machine. Of course theres the wind and the elements, but most of all its 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 CBR 600RR 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, its comfortable enough to use as a weekday commuter or a weekend canyon bike.
First of all, theres its size: compact, light, a tribute to Hondas understanding of mass centralization, the four-cylinder engine revs like nothing youve ever ridden, unless youve ridden a MotoGP racer. The chassis (an aluminum twin-spar design) is the basis of the CBR 600RRs laser-sharp handling. Brakes? You can choose between its conventional triple-disc setup or opt for a special version with Hondas 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.Features May Include:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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 Hondas championship-winning MotoGP bikes, its a perfect example of the CBRs superior engineering.
- Radial Mounted Front-Brake Calipers
The CBR 600RR 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Centrally Located Fuel Tank
The CBR 600RRs 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 bikes 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.
