2016 Honda CBR600RR

In the middle-weight 600cc motorcycle segment, the 2016 Honda CBR600RR is a force to be reckoned with. Ever since Honda introduced the CBR 600RR in 2003 it has consecutively won 7 SuperSport Championship titles and still holds the record to this day. Now that says a lot about what a machine this motorcycle is; not only in terms of speed but also in areas like handling, agility, reliability and more. The CBR 600RR have been tooth and nail with arch rival Yamaha YZF R6 since its launch and the competition has only gotten tougher between the two as both companies roll out revised models almost every year. Let’s find out if the 2016 iteration of the CBR can stay ahead of its competition and claim the title of the world’s best 600cc supersports motorcycle.

The 2016 Honda CBR600RR will carry forward its sports DNA and come with an overall aggressive stance and look. On the front of the bike is the two beautiful H7 LED headlamps that are 20% more powerful and energy efficient. The aggressive lines on the cowl and fairings continues towards the 4.8 gallon fuel tank that has been specially designed to increase mass centralization and allow the rider to hug the tank when cruising at high speeds. The suspension of the bike is handled by a 41mm inverted Piston Fork on the front and on the rear by the all new Unit Pro-Link suspension system that will isolate the chassis from unwanted vibrations from road bumps translated through the tires. Seating position is extremely sporty with a seat height of 820mm but the bike feels at home even on high speeds thanks to its frame and the long wheelbase of 1369mm. The bike is available in shades of Red, White, Blue, and Black.
