2017 Honda CBR600RR

/
Track Proven. Canyon Approved.

Some bikes are so expertly designed, they become an extension of the rider.

The Honda CBR600RR is that machine. It’s the perfect bike to use as a weekday commuter, a weekend canyon bike and of course, cutting laps on the track.

There are a lot of reasons it’s so good at so much. Starting with 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.

No matter if it’s on the track or the street, the 2017 CBR600RR is a winner. Without a doubt, the definitive 600cc Supersport.

Emissions

  • Meets current EPA standards. California version meets current CARB standards and may differ slightly due to emissions equipment.

Innovations

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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 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 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.
  • 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.
