2017 Honda CBR600RR ABS

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: 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • ELECTRONIC COMBINED ANTI-LOCK BRAKING (C-ABS): The 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.
