Honda have announced details of the 2012 CBR600RR, which is now available with what the company calls a ‘fresh Victory Red/Ross White’ paintjob. ‘Supremely compact and potent, the 2012 Honda CBR600RR delivers blistering power balanced by easy, natural handling and faultless road manners. This is made possible by ultra-light weight, mass centralisation and a compact chassis. The engine delivers immediate, exhilarating torque, while its fairing is aggressively aerodynamic, enhances stability and allows maximum enjoyment of the machine’s performance,’ says a press release from Honda.

‘Smooth, strong braking power is provided by radially-mounted four-piston caliper front disc brakes. The ABS version features Honda’s electronically-controlled ‘Combined ABS.’ Due to its short wheelbase, a sportsbike can be prone to pitching under hard braking, which reduces rear traction. The Honda system, designed specifically for Super Sports riders, minimises this tendency, ensuring superb stability and control under severe deceleration,’ says the press note from Honda.

Indeed, while it isn’t radically new or exciting, we do suppose the 2012 CBR600RR will continue to be one of the fastest, best handling 600s around.
