2017 Honda CBR600RR on www.Totalmotorcycle.com
Track proven. Canyon approved…
The lineage behind the CBR600RR boasts ongoing track-tested, championship-winning advancements in form and function that have kept this machine at the forefront of the 600cc Supersport class. The 2017 CBR600RR delivers strong engine, front suspension featuring Honda’s 41mm Big Piston Fork for exceptional handling and supple action, plus MotoGP-inspired bodywork that’s a product of race-tested aerodynamic design. It all adds up to a sport bike that leads the way, whether it’s at the track or just a fun afternoon ride on twisty back roads.
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.
Bred to win.
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.
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.
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.
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.
No matter if it’s on the track or the street, the 2017 CBR600RR is a winner. Without a doubt, the definitive 600cc Supersport.
A Winner on the Track and Street.
We’re not going to tell you that your new CBR600RR can go up against MotoGP World Champion Marc Marquez’s Honda RC213V, but we will tell you that there’s plenty of technology proven on the track built into every Honda sportbike engine and chassis. And the CBR600RR is no exception.
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.

2017 Honda CBR600RR www.Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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. 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.

2017 Honda CBR600RR Get Minor Changes For Lightweight
Back in 2003 when Honda presented its lightweight and powerful CBR600RR, this model brings something completely new to the segment of road bikes – it is extremely efficient, make it usable not only for a public road, but also in race track. Don’t make a grin – it has just a bit more 100 HP, but this bike is not about power – it is about weight. CBR600RR has perfect weight to power ratio, which helps superior handling.Red color White color
You’d have to say that over the decades, Honda have dominated the motorcycle racing scene, taking wins and championships in pretty much every series they compete in, even when run as a privateer team – there is no getting away from the fact that Honda know how to design and screw together a race bike. The CBR600RR is the culmination of that knowledge and experience, all wrapped up in beautiful red and black bodywork.
The 2017 Honda CBR600RR is available and in your local Honda dealership right now; book a test ride and learn what we mean when we say ‘sharp handling’. OK, so the CBR600RR is a little more expensive than some of the competition, but you’re buying race quality parts, not just an image. Full retail price for the CBR600RR is $11,799, which is actually a few hundred dollars cheaper than the R6, the Yamaha equivalent.Rear view Side view
2017 Honda CBR600RR New Colors
Not much has changed between the 2016 and 2017 model, but it was top of the pile to start with, so as the old saying goes; ‘if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it’.
The new color scheme (just one solitary color in the U.S.) is Black & Red for 2017. The design of the bike takes inspiration from the RC213V MotoGP racer, and when you see them side by side, you definitely see the family resemblance; Honda claim that it is race tested and aerodynamically designed.Looks sporty
As part of the race inspiration, there is a HESD system fitted; Honda Electronic Steering Damper, much more accurate than the steering dampers of old, which only had one setting. This new damper works in conjunction with the smart electronics on the bike, the system monitors such things as throttle position, gear and even lean angle to select the best setting at any given time, and it works.
2017 CBR600RR Advanced Injection
Powering this little 600 is a 599cc inline four, which pushes out 113 BHP, certainly enough to get you out of (or in to!) trouble. It uses the technically advanced PGM-DSFI fuel injection system to give an even spread of power throughout the rev range. What are your thoughts on the 2017 Honda CBR600RR?

Почему новых Honda CBR600RR больше не будет
И снова печалька в мире мотоновостей. На этот раз для фанатов одного из самых культовых байков Honda CBR600RR — компания Honda Motor Co. завершила цикл разработки и развития данного мотоцикла. и выведет из производственной линейки. Почему же? — опять сыграл доблестный экологический стандарт выхлопов Euro4. а также из-за сокращения рынка.
Как подтвердили представители сразу двух крупнейших европейских представительств Honda во Франции и Италии, головной офис наблюдал за стабильным спадом спроса на рынке гражданских 600-кубовых спортивных мотоциклов в последние несколько лет. А с введением нового экологического регламента Euro4, обязательного для соблюдения всеми производителями в ЕС, CBR600RR полностью потеряет конкурентоспособность в 2017 году. Чтобы произвести модернизацию мотоцикла, заводу придется пойти на слишком серьезную реструктуризацию производства и инвестировать большие средства в обновление технической базы компании. По этой причине было принято решение свернуть разработку модели и реализовать на рынке складские остатки. Место на рынке должны занять Honda CBR500R и CBR650F, как было до появления CBR600RR.
Согласно лазейке в новом регламенте ЕС, Honda CBR600RR в омологации Euro3 будет продаваться в Европе, но в очень ограниченном количестве, то есть не более 10% от суммарного количества проданных мотоциклов той же модели за последние 2 года. Таким образом, модель останется доступной узкому кругу потребителей, в частности, в мотоспорте, как минимум, до конца 2018 года.
Honda CBR600RR — культовая модель среднекубатурного спотбайка, появившаяся на свет в гражданском формате (CBR600F, 85 л.с.) в 1987 году и постепенно выросла до 110 л.с. Непосредственно CBR600RR вышел в свет в 2003 году в версии 118 л.с. Неизменно, этот мотоцикл строился вокруг 4-цилиндрового 4-тактного рядного двигателя объемом 599 куб.см. В 2013 году Honda произвела последнюю модернизацию байка, обновив электронику, добавив в набор трекшн-контроль и Cornering ABS и установив вилку Showa BPF, а также изменив внешний вид облицовок. С того момента мотоцикл никак не менялся.
В то же время, Honda CBR600RR является одним из самых успешных спортбайков класса 600 куб.см. в чемпионате мира World Supersport. С 2002 года он участвует в серии и помог пилотам взять 7 чемпионских титулов, включая победу в WSS Майка Ван дер Марка в 2014 году вместе с официальной командой Ten Kate Honda Racing.
Голландская Ten Kate Racing первой из всех добилась существенного прогресса в разработке технологий для CBR600RR в мире. Участвуя в World Supersport и World Superbike, команда выполняла роль неофициального R&D департамента Honda Racing на протяжении 16 лет. Сегодня TKR является официальной заводской командой HRC и хранит все наработки, доступные клиентам.
Эта кропотливая работа привела команду и Honda CBR600RR к доминированию в WSS с 2002 по 2010 годы, пока Kawasaki и Yamaha не взялись более серьезно за поддержку своих пилотов и команд в чемпионате мира.
Первый мировой титул Honda принес в 2002 году Фабиан Форе, пилотировавший именно CBR600F. В следующем сезоне чемпионом мира стал Крис Вермюлен, уже на CBR600RR, затем Карл Маггеридж. Себастья Шарпентье два года подряд, в 2005 и 2006 становился чемпионом Ten Kate Honda, затем в команду пришел юный турок Кенан Софуглу, который выиграл титул в 2007, отдав корону своему напарнику Эндрю Питту в 2008, а затем вернув в 2010. Ван дер Марк стал чемпионом в 2014. В 2016 лидером чемпионата снова является Софуглу, однако турок уже несколько лет выступает за Kawasaki, а пилоты Honda оспаривают 2-ю позицию.
Нельзя не отметить участие Honda CBR600RR и в чемпионате мира по Мото Гран-При… MotoGP? Нет, конечно же, но речь идет о Moto2.
Когда серия только-только появилась на свет в 2010 году, генеральный промоутер MotoGP Dorna Sports подписал эксклюзивное соглашение с Honda Motor Co. на поставку в чемпионат двигателей CBR600RR. Правило единого поставщика моторов было прописано именно под Honda, так что сам чемпионат должен кардинально измениться в 2018 году, когда Honda полностью прекратит выпуск модели. Dorna Sports придется либо снять ограничение на участие других производителей моторов, либо закрыть категорию Moto2. Речь об этой революции идет с 2014 года, когда появились первые сигналы о возможном закрытии программы CBR600RR в Японии. Желание участвовать в Moto2 не только в качестве наблюдателей изъявили KTM, Yamaha, Kawasaki, MV Agusta и другие производители мотоциклов. KTM пришлось даже разработать собственное шасси для двигателя Honda CBR600RR, чтобы вступить в Moto2 в 2017 году с перспективой выставить 100% Factory bike, как только правило единого мотора будет отменено и Honda потеряет монополию.
Honda CBR600RR is no more
Honda will kill off the CBR600RR at the end of this year the current bike isn’t able to meet imminent Euro4 noise and emissions standards, which come into force on January 1, 2017. After that date a limited number of bikes can be sold in the UK and Europe under ‘derogation’ rules. After that, a model which has been a staple of the British biking diet for the past 30 years will be killed off.
There’s still no official word from Honda about the future of the CBR600RR but MCN’s Japanese sources have confirmed there’s not going to be a European replacement for the ultra-focussed CBR600RR, while the existing model could continue to be sold in markets unaffected by Euro4 legislation.
Go back just a few years and the thought of there being no CBR600RR in the Honda line-up would have been unthinkable; now it appears that the massive drop in sales, that changing shape of the market and the increasing lack of importance in the supersport racing category have all conspired to kill off the model.
The supersport 600 class is further hampered by the development costs of engineering. A new bike for the 600cc class is almost the same cost as that for a 1000cc bike. The levels of engineering complexity are the same, the packaging issues are equally challenging, consumer demands for the latest electronics are the same but there’s no appetite for paying more and therefore the profit margins for manufacturers is tiny.
MCN’s Japanese source told us: “It’s not been an easy decision to make for some at Honda because the CBR600 is a bike that has had a great deal of importance to the company over the years but the fact is this model isn’t selling in the numbers needed to make it viable for another model to be developed.
“The work needed to get this bike through Euro4 is expensive and there is a lot of detail work to be done to make the bike legal. In order to keep the character of the CBR600RR intact and keep it legal requires a lot more work than it first appears. This work adds weight, complexity and cost. The weight would then need to be removed from somewhere else and then the bike gets more expensive still.”
The way Honda finances new bike development may have played a part in the demise of the CBR600RR too. Unlike some companies that operate a global bike development policy, Honda asks each region to pay a share of each bike to be engineered and built. In this way Honda Europe and other regions that need Euro4 compliant bikes to sell may have looked at the numbers being sold and just refused to pay up as they knew full well they would never get the investment back. For the opposite reason, the large potential market in the USA may well have refused to pay for all of the work needed for Euro4 because it’s not relevant to the US market at all. Why pay for work to make a bike legal when you don’t have to?
Honda aren’t giving up on sportsbikes; there’s a new CBR1000RR Fireblade coming for 2017 but the 600cc category has suffered a massive drop in sales since the heyday of that class in the late 1990s early 2000s. The current big-selling CBR650F will continue to offer a mid-capacity choice for those wanting a fun, sporty road bike – much like the original CBR600F was when it was first launched in 1987, and before it became the track missile aimed at racing success in 2003.
The supersport 600 category has been responsible for its own demise in some ways. Racing demanded the road bike to be more extreme, but fewer and fewer road riders wanted a bike that was so track focused, and because the sales are low there’s no incentive for the manufacturers to spend money developing new ones – which gives buyers no incentive to upgrade. And so the cycle continues.
Back in the late 1990s the CBR600F sold more than 4500 units in the UK each year. Last year, only 150 CBR600RRs were brought into the UK, and many of those went straight to the Honda Ron Haslam Race School rather than into dealers.
It’s the end of an era.
What does the future hold for the other supersport 600s?
Yamaha UK’s Jeff Turner said: “The current Yamaha YZF-R6 is not Euro4 compliant because it would need ABS and different emissions control to pass those new regulations. We can continue to sell the current bike for a little while longer but Euro4 isn’t going away.
“As part of Yamaha’s DNA is the goal to have a full line-up of supersport models from 125cc through to 1000cc. There could be a technical solution to Euro4 that doesn’t necessarily cause too many problems for us. This is not a super high priority because of the volumes involved right now.”
Suzuki GB’s General Manager Paul de Lusignan told MCN: “The current GSX-R600 will continue to form part of our model line-up into 2017, as we are using the period of derogation available to manufacturers to continue to sell models that don’t yet meet the Euro 4 requirements.
“The GSX-R600 is still very popular, selling strongly last year. In fact, last year the 600 market actually grew for us, with sales up by nearly 13% from 2014. GSX-R is a range of machines that is incredibly important to Suzuki and is a huge part of our history. The new GSX-R1000 is in development for 2017, but the GSX-R600 and GSX-R750 are just as important.”
Kawasaki European PR Manager, Martin Lambert: “The Supersport 600 class is especially interesting for Kawasaki as we can rightly claim to have been fundamental in its development with the GPz600R in the 1980s.
“Moving forward we are already considering a multitude of factors, those being incoming and ongoing legislation, the direction of the market and demand from consumers plus how machines fit as part of a total brand offering. One thing is for sure, Kawasaki believes in the virtues of mid-capacity sports motorcycles.”
Triumph Daytona 675
Triumph were the last manufacturer to release an all-new bike with the latest Daytona 675 but the company admitted that bike only went ahead because so much time and money had already been spent on it before the global financial meltdown of 2009. Had that bike been a bit less developed Triumph official admitted it would have been mothballed and never seen the light of day. MCN understands the next Daytona (still at least a year away) will ditch the 675cc inline three-cylinder motor and go up in capacity to a 765cc motor to make it an even better road bike.
