The Intake Air Control Valve (IACV) minimizes torque reaction and smoothes response to small throttle changes through gradual reductions of air and fuel intake when the throttle is opened and closed.
Liquid-cooled DOHC 16-valve 599 cc inline-four engine features oversquare bore and stroke dimensions of 67 mm x 42.5 mm, which contributes to its high-revving, quick-accelerating nature. The lightweight forged-aluminum pistons incorporate special shot peening for added toughness, and oil jets beneath the pistons provide additional friction reduction and cooling.
High-revving engine redlines at 15,000 rpm. The cylinder head features angled valve insets to improve airflow. Two springs per intake valve and one spring per exhaust valve, plus direct shim-under-bucket valve actuation, help to ensure optimum high-rpm valve operation and durability. A double-pivot cam-chain tensioner provides additional durability.
Iridium-tip sparkplugs improve fuel combustion and performance, and a non-resonance knock sensor maintains optimum spark advance while constantly monitoring combustion performance during mid- to high-speed operation.
The Dual Stage Fuel Injection (DSFI) system features 40 mm throttle bodies and two injectors per cylinder — one upper and one lower — controlled by an electronic control system (ECU) that senses rpm and throttle opening. The lower injectors enhance rideability while the upper injectors improve top-end horsepower. A two-stage ram-air system provides a high volume of cool air to the airbox for linear power delivery and incredible engine performance.
Auto-enrichment system is integrated into the programmed fuel-injection (PGM-FI) module, eliminating the need for a manual choke. Denso 12-hole injectors deliver finely atomized fuel mixture for optimum combustion efficiency and power.
Lightweight stainless steel four-into-one exhaust system features an inline-exhaust valve to control exhaust pressure for maximum performance. The routing of the exhaust system beneath the tail section helps to improve lean angle.
The smooth-shifting close-ratio six-speed transmission is closely matched to the engine's powerband.
Fine Die-Cast (FDC) aluminum frame uses four large castings for optimum rigidity and light weight.
The Showa Big Piston fork features a large damping-oil volume to effectively reduce the hydraulic pressure generated as the fork legs compress and extend. The result is more precise action during the initial stroke and smoother damping action for improved handling, enhanced front-end feedback, and a more solid feel during hard braking.
Unit Pro-Link rear suspension system is patterned after Honda’s RC213V MotoGP racer. In this two-piece shock system, the upper shock mount is contained within the swingarm rather than the frame. With no top frame mount for the shock, this unique system reduces negative suspension energy from being transmitted into the frame, improving rear-end traction and enhancing cornering performance.
Small and light Honda Electronic Steering Damper (HESD) enhances stability by automatically adjusting damping pressure to suit the bike’s speed.
Braking system features twin four-piston radial-mounted front calipers, dual 310 mm front discs and a single 220 mm rear disc for optimum stopping power. Vertical-piston master-cylinder system produces superior leverage ratio at the front brake lever for higher braking efficiency with excellent feel and controllability. This layout permits the use of a longer brake lever, which means more braking force with less effort from the rider.
Optional Electronically Controlled Combined ABS – the first ABS system designed specifically for the unique demands of a sportbike – brings world-class stopping power and control to your fingertips.
MotoGP-inspired bodywork includes slim turn-signal indicators, twin headlights, and fairing vents designed to keep both you and the engine cool.
The CBR600RR’s acclaimed ergonomics provide excellent everyday comfort while also allowing you to tuck in tight for sporty riding or racing.
Line-beam headlights feature a three-piece reflector design utilizing two H7 bulbs for optimum light distribution and a unique compact design.
Instrumentation is very compact and features an LCD panel with tachometer, odometer, twin tripmeters speedometer, fuel gauge and clock.
Stylish 12-spoke aluminum-alloy wheels feature race-spec 3.5 x 17-inch front and 5.5 x 17-inch rear dimensions.
Convenient features include a compact rear cowl storage compartment for U-type locking devices (lock not included) under the passenger seat, optional seat cowl, integrated ignition-switch/fork lock for added security, and convenient push-to-cancel turn-signal switch. Pivoting aerodynamic mirrors, maintenance-free battery and a one-year, unlimited mileage, freely transferable warranty top off the list.
