Honda Announced All-new CBR600RR Super Sports Bike in Japan
Honda Motors today announced that the all-new Honda CBR600RR Super Sports bike will go on sale Friday, September 25, 2020, through Honda Dream locations across Japan. Equipped with a high-performance, 599cc, liquid-cooled, 4-stroke DOHC inline 4-cylinder engine. This newly-developed Honda CBR600RR features the latest electronic control and aerodynamic technologies to realize enhanced overall performance.
Honda CBR600RR bike was developed as a right-sized Super Sports model. That enables riders to enjoy the high potential of a base production race model in their everyday lives. With this all-new model, the development team further pursued the “pleasure of maneuvering” by further refining the distinctive features of previous Honda CBR600RR models. So, this includes high-power yet controllable output characteristics and agile handling, while simultaneously achieving excellence in on-track performance and rider-friendliness on public roads, including winding roads at a high level.
The power unit of the all-new Honda CBR600RR achieves the maximum power output of 89kW. To achieve this higher maximum power. The bike’s engine speed at which maximum power is attained was increased by changing materials. That used for key components such as the camshaft and crankshaft. Both intake and exhaust efficiency of the bike also increased through various measures including reshaping of the inlet port, enlargement of the throttle bore diameter.
Key features of the all-new Honda CBR600RR
Power unit with high-power yet controllable output characteristics
Firstly, in order to ensure high performance in production bike racing. The engine speed at which maximum power output is attained was increased to 14,000 rpm, by changing materials used for key components such as camshafts, valve springs, and the crankshaft. Along with this increase in engine speed, both intake and exhaust efficiency were increased through various measures. The diameter of the throttle bore was enlarged and the inlet port reshaped for the intake system. However, the size and thickness of different parts of the exhaust pipes were optimized for the exhaust system, and changes were made to valve timing. These changes resulted in the achievement of a maximum power output of 89 kW.
Secondly, the efficiency in the cooling combustion chamber and area around the exhaust valve seat was increased through the reshaping of the water jacket for the cylinder head.
Adoption of electronic control technologies that support fun riding
The all-new Honda CBR600RR is equipped with an IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit)-based vehicle attitude estimation system. By combining vehicle attitude data with the ABS and Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC). The all-new Honda CBR600RR provides the “pleasure of maneuvering” in accordance with riding conditions.
The all-new Honda CBR600RR is equipped with a throttle-by-wire (TBW) system where the accelerator position sensor (APS) detects the angle of the rider’s throttle grip opening and sends a signal to the ECU. The ECU then sends a drive signal to the TBW motor to control the throttle valve. The all-new CBR600RR also features riding modes that combine different control levels of the Power Selector, HSTC, Wheelie Mitigation Control, and Selectable Engine Brake. Bike riders can select a riding feel in accordance with the riding conditions and their preferences.
Styling that realizes outstanding aerodynamic performance and functional beauty
The styling for the all-new Honda CBR600RR bike incorporates aerodynamic technologies that were fed back from racing activities where aerodynamic performance is thoroughly pursued. Finally, such styling contributed to the improvement of wind-resistant performance and the realization of agile handling by optimizing projected front and lateral areas and achieving the lowest drag coefficient in the class. Moreover, downforce generated by winglets whose position, shape, and installation angle are optimized contributes to the improvement of bike stability while entering corners or turning while accelerating.
Color that presents a racing image
The all-new Honda CBR600RR will come in Grand Prix Red, a tri-color scheme that represents Honda racing technologies.
Rider-friendly equipment and genuine accessories
The all-new Honda CBR600RR bike features the following equipment:
- Firstly, full LED lighting, achieving lightweight, compact-sized, and energy-saving lighting.
- Secondly, full-color thin-film transistor (TFT) liquid-crystal display for the meter to provide the rider with abundant vehicle information and easy-to-understand status of various electronic control systems.
- Thirdly, the emergency Stop Signal System, which response to sudden braking and promptly alerts the following vehicles by flashing hazard lamps quickly.
- Then, assist & slipper clutch, with an assist function that makes the clutch lever lighter to pull and a slipper function which mitigates rear-wheel hop caused by abrupt engine braking while downshifting.
- Finally, quick Shifter, which enables quicker upshifting and downshifting, is available and sold separately as a genuine accessory for the all-new Honda CBR600RR motorcycle.
