2009 Honda CBR600RR unveiled

The 2009 Honda CBR600RR, now with C-ABS. The paintjob looks hot!

Honda have released the first official pics of the 2009 CBR600RR, and like it is with the new Fireblade, the big news on the 600 is ABS. Yes, the Honda’s new 600RR will be available with electronically controlled anti-lock brakes as an option. Honda’s C-ABS not only prevents wheel lockups under very hard braking, but also modulates brake force between the front and rear wheels, and is probably a big advance in safety for sportsbike riders.

Other changes on the 2009 Honda CBR600RR include an engine that’s been fettled for better low-rpm power delivery, radial-mount monoblock brake calipers at the front, minor changes to the fairing for a reduction in wind noise and for better high-speed stability, and new paintjobs. Power output stands at 120bhp and the new 600RR weighs in at 184 kilos, so performance should be quite nice…

Honda factory accessories for the 2009 CBR600RR include a tinted bubble screen, rear seat cowl, various carbonfibre bits, and anti-theft alarm. Again, like with the 2009 Fireblade, not much seems to have changed on the new 600RR, but we still expect it to be the best 600cc supersports machine in the market in 2009…
