MotoUSA the revised CBR in all of its elements. First, we up Mulholland Drive in the eastern Monica Mountains of Southern for the street test. After we headed down to Chuckwalla Raceway for the track portion to give the mid-size CBR some

Some may think the time is for an all-new CBR, but the updates to the RR are so significant they bring the close enough to new, in the cosmetics department.

Using strategies from the Honda race program and its RC212V, the 600 a set of completely redesigned bodywork not only upgrade the bike’s but also reduces drag by over the previous year’s Development and testing with the new led to aerodynamic advancements that are now used on Honda’s current MotoGP bike.

The bodywork’s efficiency allows for nimbler and much improved wind offering more comfort to the To match the bodywork, Honda the same 12-spoke wheel as the bikes older sibling, the The red, white, and blue as well as the solid red models, is with a set of black wheels the Repsol colorway embraces a orange set.

A redesigned, centrally-located ram-air rests between a pair of headlamps. The improved ram-air and updated ECU and PGM-DSFI settings mid-range power delivery and throttle response in the high-RPM We noticed the electronic updates as as we hit the street.

Throttle response is improved over the previous Although the ECU settings are enhanced to aid in the high RPM range, we didn’t it too much on the street but it was a whole story as soon as we hit the track. The is most appreciated on corner A twist of the throttle and the bike moving.

Slowly open it up more and you’re spinning the tire out of the corner like Pedrosa. an incredible feeling and one is extremely impressive for an off-the-showroom street bike.

Although the diameter as last year’s the new BPF replaces the previous HMAS on the 2012 model. The Big Piston accommodates a larger damper which allows damping to function at a lower internal

This enables the fork to be responsive, and provide better to the rider. Additionally the BPF uses components, reducing weight. The shock remains the same but gets revised damper to match up with the new fork.

On the we couldn’t give the bike too hell, as we didn’t want to end up in a or …. The few moments we really the front end we could tell the new is a definite upgrade. At the track the stands out even more, with set up and tuning done by other than John

We were able to find the on the old fork by pushing the front in some of the corners. The new fork us to push the front end harder a better feel of where the was before tucking the front. spinning a number of laps I the Big Piston Fork on the 2013 the best one I’ve tested to

It didn’t exhibit the vague we’ve encountered on other Big Forks, such as the units on the Kawasaki ZX-6R and ZX-10R. or the CBR1000RR. The increased feeling the fork leads to more confidence mid-corner.

In the midst of all the we gave the ABS version CBR600RR a around Chuckwalla. At a hefty 18 heavier, the noticeable weight a huge factor on the track, lap times by about a half of a Although we tried hard to late into corners and up the front tire to engage the we could only get the rear to

The ABS will have its greatest in wet or cold conditions.

We find the to be a good one, although the isn’t equipped with a clutch like the Yamaha R6 and GSX-R600. Our personal preference think one is necessary on the Honda. The to come into a corner and just enough compression to the CBR into a rear wheel is like no other feeling. less experienced riders may problems when shifting dramatically, sending the rear into a skid.
