The New 2007 Honda CBR600RR

The new 2007 Honda CBR600RR is new from the ground up. Totally the all new CBR600RR launches a blistering on road and track with a new, aerodynamically designed form; a smaller, lighter and powerful new 600cc Dual Fuel Injected inline-4 a slimmer and lighter weight new Die-Cast aluminium frame. And not all, it also has an impressive of high-performance features which all together to herald the arrival of the new champion of the mid-displacement Super class.

Stamped with the imprint of its proud RC211V racing lineage, the new CBR600RR’s to Function’ concept now sets the for another historic reign of CBR domination with a stronger ratio, brisker, more handling and smoother, easier that lets every feel in no uncertain terms they too can be The Fastest on the Track and the Everywhere.

Packed with technologies handed directly from Honda’s mighty champion, the RC211V, the astounding debuted in 2003 as a mid-sized bike designed primarily to Honda’s leadership in the highly environment of World Supersport Subsequently, its class-leading combination of top characteristics carried the CBR600RR to consecutive World Supersport following the 2002 title by the CBR600F-Sport, and total domination of its in every year since its debut.

It also excelled at one of the most exciting blends of top and remarkable riding ease to make a rider with a for speed feel like a Its incredible race-winning capability and performance potential also the CBR a thrilling and confidence-inspiring mount for who simply love to ride

Time, however, gradually up with the CBR600RR, and the competition has to become especially intense in the category in the world of street In order to reassert its domination of the the CBR required more than another makeover and the addition of a few new features to a well-proven design.

the time had come to start on a clean page to incorporate all the manufacturing and racing innovations over the years since the CBR saw the light of day. The time had to lay a king to rest and prepare the for the coming of a new champion.

Development — A New Dimension in 600cc Sports Design

Setting out to a more intensely competitive yet widely enjoyable next-generation to the brilliant CBR600RR would be no feat. However, unhindered by the of trying to improve on an existing the CBR600RR’s development team given the freedom to explore the possibilities and hidden potential of new design innovations in the quest for greater advances in performance and

Thus, formulating their for an all-new middleweight Super leader around the main concepts of “Lighter Weight for Control” and “New Dimensions in Super Sports Design,” the focused on achieving an even power-to-weight ratiowith all its inherent lighter weight and reduced everywhere. Engine, frame, even the instrument panel; was overlooked in quest for a lighter and CBR.

Forged in the fires of competition, the new 2007 CBR600RR is with a long list of design and development innovations will assure its domination of and track for years to come.

to Function

As development progressed and drawings graduated to prototype other concepts came play. The idea of achieving Fun on Winding Roads” played a big in guiding the team’s efforts in extraneous weight and more centralising the new Super Sports overall mass. The concept of to Function” also played an role in the complete redesign of the new chassis extremities and bodywork to not only a visible sense of and speed, but also the most and competitive performance ever, to the concept and goal of creating a that is “Fastest on the Track; Everywhere.”

The pursuit of lighter everywhere was certainly the fundamental key to the new design, and the results reveal in the most compact inline-4 to ever power a middleweight Sports riding machine. a targeted 8 kilogramme reduction in weight, engine components lightened by a combined total of 2kg, the frame was trimmed by a 4.5kg, other chassis took away a further and even the CBR’s electronics lightened by a small but significant

No part, however small, was in the process of trimming weight for the advances in performance. The end result is weight that translates to acceleration and swifter, smoother

Although the current CBR600RR is oriented toward high-rpm performance, the new model was designed to on these features while making the machine’s full potential more easily to a wider range of riders. the team certainly sought to on-track performance and handling for riders on familiar roads, one of main goals was to also the ability of less expert to fully enjoy the thrill of the especially on unfamiliar winding being travelled for the first thereby expanding the CBR’s of riding enjoyment while increasing its full performance

Factors considered in the determination of the way to achieve this enhanced road riding enjoyment of course the engine’s feel of and acceleration, particularly through a midrange, and quick, linear to every input. Also, that provides an almost response that reacts and instantly to rider inputs, has been achieved through a shorter wheelbase, enhanced centralisation and the addition of a new HESD Electronic Steering Damper) Overall fit and finish also a big part in the CBR’s enjoyment as does the exterior design’s of aggressive style and overall which sets a new standard for in the middleweight Super Sports

With its impressively designed new form, new smaller and more engine, new lighter weight Die-Cast aluminium frame and a of other dynamic features its new HESD, the 2007 CBR600RR the stage for another generation of domination on the road and on the track, and the electrifying thrill of riding the pulse quicken. Stamped the genetic imprint of its RC211V lineage, the new CBR600RR is positioned to let rider feel in no uncertain that they too can be The Fastest on the and the Fastest Everywhere.

New Styling

From its compact, sharply nose to its sleekly curved the new CBR600RR exudes the look of a champion in the making. Every in its startling new form is the direct of a new ‘True to Function’ design that guided its development in stripping away everything not applicable to pure function and improvements in performance.

From to tail cowl, every of bodywork and related hardware was and redesigned with the goal of unprecedented advances in mass and air management, not to mention improvements in the power-to-weight ratio, for maximised performance on the street and on the track. The is a total combination of chassis and design that has been lightened in look, positioning of and actual weight in the creation of an lightweight and compact new Super leader.

Dramatic New Airfoil

The new CBR600RR’s stunning bodywork a new precedent in Super Sports with a large gap of separation between the front upper and the fairing’s side cowls. design innovation is based on air design borrowed from the and fins used on both planes and Formula One racers to efficiently direct air around and its more compact form giving visual expression to the functionality of its wind tunnel-tested

Improved Mass Centralisation

efforts made in the quest for mass centralisation and lighter at the CBR’s extremities led to significant in size and weight of nearly all the main components, from its new cowl to its lighter and more centre-up exhaust silencer and seat cowl.

For a start, the shape of the front cowl is now more compact, its nose and surrounding form 30mm rearward and closer to the head for reduced inertial on turning and cornering response. The new cowl has also been more compact, and now more surrounds the exhaust headers down under the engine to airflow for more effective while visually emphasising the improved aerodynamics. This form also extends to the which is now 40mm narrower in and 33mm longer in height for compact proportions while its excellent cooling capacity.

The seat cowl was also reduced in size and slimmed in for a more compact form and mass at the bike’s extremities, combines with the shorter, compact exhaust silencer to a major contribution to swifter, responsive handling. In fact, the cowl is now so small in size it seems to be merely resting the silencer for a lighter and more integrated look.

New Ram Air Induction

Another important part of the new aerodynamic design is its effect on the power production, as can be seen in the of the front cowl, which is now by an impressively large air intake built right into its precisely where the pressure of air the front cowl’s nose at is at its strongest. Modelled on the system for the World Superbike-winning VTR1000 this new port feeds through the new frame’s open head casting to the CBR’s airbox. This new ram air system a direct, unimpeded flow of volumes of cool, dense air to the tracts at high speeds, for a surge of torque-filled performance tears up the twisties and dominates the

Positioned between this port and the steering head is a and very strong FRP intake extension that has been structurally strong enough to the entire front cowl and its components, including its lightweight Beam headlights.

Improved Ease and Manoeuvrability

Although the new riding position remains unchanged, the rider’s hip position on the was moved rearward approximately for enhanced mass centralisation to the positioning of the new engine, and the area the seat joins the rear of has been made significantly and smoother, with less edges in the legs’ contact for easier manoeuvrability, especially in racing conditions. The handlebars also been raised compared to the previous model, riding ease for a wider of handling capability and long-term The handlebar-to-seat distance remains the same as before.

Lighting The

Further highlighting the CBR600RR’s new form are the same distinctive of low-profile Line Beam which project a modern in keeping with its racing Less than half the of the headlights seen on most bikes, these lightweight, units feature compact, multi-reflector designs projecting clear lenses to provide a night-time view of the road

Compact, grey-tinted indicator cover amber bulbs for a more modern look, the CBR’s LED taillight, which was into the underside of the tail on its versions, now protrudes out from the exhaust’s upward slanting pipe for a cleaner and more integrated image.

In the four years its introduction, the CBR600RR’s high-powered inline-4 engine has proven to be a force to be reckoned with on the street and on the circuit. Delivering a responsive range of power and its compact configuration also realise optimal mass for a significant contribution to the RR’s handling.

However, for the CBR600RR’s generation, even greater to reduce size and weight needed to achieve its new development of even sharper and more handling, as well as significant in its power-to-weight ratio. So, an entirely new was designed and developed, incorporating of Honda’s most advanced high-performance engine technology to a more efficient and powerful featuring the smallest size and weight in its class.

The Smallest and Engine in the 600cc Class

the new RR’s stated goals of and faster performance necessitated not a reworking or redesign of an established configuration, but an entirely new rethink first drawings to final The end result is, in a word, remarkable. Not are the new engine’s front-to-rear and top-to-bottom by far the smallest in its own 600cc class, its length is also smaller and compact than any inline-4 in the 250cc class as well.

new engine’s smaller dimensions achieved through a total and, among other repositioning of the engine’s main within the crankcase in a tight configuration that narrows the distance by over 30mm. with detailed changes in its design, these closer make possible a drastic in crankcase size and, by weight. The crankcase castings weigh over 900g than its predecessor, representing the part of the engine’s exceptional 2kg in weight compared to the current

Other modifications to reduce weight include a new magnesium cover (330g lighter), new connecting rods, new single valve springs matched to and lighter lifters, a smaller new ACG magnet and many more changes that all add up to the realisation of the new astoundingly smaller configuration and weight.

Stronger Performance

Of for an engine designed to be competitive on the circuit as well as on the street, the primary goal in the development of the new engine was gaining a stronger, widely useable range of and performance. Many of the new technologies and made were developed and on the CBR1000RR Fireblade and adapted to the new including modified intake and ports and changes to the intakes stack lengths and taper, and to the ECU governing the control of its two-stage fuel injection system. The lighter weight new stainless exhaust system also new in-line exhaust valve to exhaust pressure for maximised

Resulting performance is not only throughout the engine’s wide but also smoother and more for more easily accessible and enjoyable top performance. The new engine features a noticeably stronger of torque between 7,000 and that not only experts, but all can better take advantage of for exciting winding road Likewise, for those times a greater range of acceleration is such as on the racetrack, the engine’s peak has also been 500rpm compared to the current

Improved PGM-DSFI Dual Fuel Injection System

supplied with large of cool, dense air by its new nose-mounted ram air duct, the new CBR600RR uses the same two-stage PGM-DSFI injection system as before to optimal fuel atomisation and charging at all engine speeds. One set of installed at the entrance to the intake provides an ideal air/fuel for quick starts and strong, low-to-midrange acceleration. At higher speeds, when both the and ram air intake are opened wide, the second set of injectors installed in the of the aircleaner kick in to deliver a timed jet of fuel that the high-volume air intake to create a mixture that improves cylinder filling efficiency for acceleration.

For 2007, the system’s aircleaner has increased in volume by 0.7 litres and its feed lines have simplified with new lighter plastic tubing and connectors the current model’s brazed fuel lines. Also, a new (intake air control valve) excessive torque reaction and response to smaller changes in input by realising more reductions of air and fuel intake the throttle is closed and then

New Pistons and Connecting Rods

The lightweight forged aluminium are treated with a molybdenum process that impregnates the of the piston skirts with low-friction molybdenum such as on the pistons installed in the CBR1000RR Featuring a thinner lower oil for further reduced friction, the are also cooled from by new high-pressure oil jets built the crankcase, which provide a of oil to the undersides of the pistons that wicks away heat

Also featured on the Fireblade, new nutless connecting rods use threaded bolts screwed into tapped holes in the to hold their endcaps in This makes an important to the engine’s greatly reduced weight, and combines with the minimised friction to realise instantly responsive power and acceleration.

New Knock Sensor

The new engine has also been with a knock sensor maintains optimum spark during mid-to-high speed while constantly monitoring performance for any signs of detonation. the knocking of detonation be detected, the automatically retards the spark just enough to eliminate the Specially programmed to distinguish the of detonation from other noises, this system can correct for the use of low-octane fuel, retarding timing until any of detonation or knock disappear, and gradually advancing the timing to a point just short of the zone to maintain optimal characteristics at all engine speeds.

New Transmission

The CBR’s new transmission takes full advantage of the performance characteristics for stronger while complementing the engine’s torque reaction to greatly the amount of gear lash during transitions between and deceleration. This new transmission features new reverse-taper shift that contribute more gear shifts in racing and help realise much and more instantly responsive experience than that on virtually any other machine in the new class.


Infused race-bred technology, the CBR600RR’s Fine Die-Cast aluminium represents a major advance in design by making possible the effective centralisation of the motorcycle’s components for light handling and response to every rider Its advanced manufacturing technique realise an organically formed that offers an optimal of light weight and rigidity, allows the machine to settle securely into turns and lines with assured whatever the riding conditions or its level of expertise.

In order to advance the new CBR’s development of achieving more easily winding road and circuit performance, its frame was entirely around its remarkably compact new Also, the CBR’s extraordinary in front and rear mass a major role in its improved centralisation, resulting in a significant in the machine’s yaw moment and cornering

Newly Designed FDC (Fine Frame

With the goal of weight and centralising mass, the of component parts and welds to make the frame was significantly From the eleven sections in the construction of the current RR’s now only four larger are used to make the new CBR600RR’s

These are its large new steering casting with its new apex-located ram air the two intermediate side engine rails, and a single large rear pivot mount that wraps under the of the engine to surround the swingarm and create an exceptionally rigid While all sections were with approximately the same wall thicknesses as the sections in the construction of the current model, the new is fully 700g lighter the unit it replaces, as well as stronger, slimmer and more

The Heart of the Matter Reduced Size

As noted above, the new engine features exceptionally dimensions which permit effective positioning within the for optimised mass centralisation and handling. Its smaller fore-to-aft also made it possible to the CBR’s wheelbase by a remarkable (from 1,395 to 1,375mm) simultaneously gaining an extra 5mm in length (to 573mm) and extending the head by 13mm, as measured the crankshaft. The chassis’ shorter combines with the extended head, which increases on the vehicle’s rotating axes, to sharper, more responsive for more aggressive control on roads and circuit corners, yet remain confidently reassuring for of not fully expert skill

To complement the effective 15mm repositioning of the engine’s centre of the rider’s seating position was shifted back 15mm to even lighter, more manoeuvrability and handling control. The overall centre of gravity was raised by 3mm over the current to achieve more neutral to rider inputs, easier flickability and smoother handling.

Suspension Components

With extraordinary efforts made in the redesign of the CBR600RR’s engine, and geometry, its suspension systems are able to do their jobs effectively, so it was felt that no were needed in their Handling is overseen by the same 41mm inverted HMAS front fork, which smoothly responsive performance with excellent rigidity and low weight for the precise and confident that world-class racing

Integrated into the CBR’s but lightweight swingarm is essentially the Unit Pro-Link rear system pioneered on the race-winning MotoGP racer. Its highly design completely isolates the from the shocks and stresses by conventional rear suspension especially under aggressive and racing conditions.

This also eliminates the need for frame reinforcement to counter stresses, thus allowing the to be designed lighter than more conventional designs, freeing up space to permit the mid-chassis positioning of the fuel thus making another contribution to mass centralisation and riding control. Its integrated rear damper features a remote gas reservoir and full and damping adjustment, providing progressive control and assured for top performance on both road and

Wheels and Brakes

Another that plays an important in achieving the lighter weight and centralised mass required of a high-performance road and track are the CBR’s triple-spoke cast wheels, which feature hubs for an ultra-lightweight design also minimises unsprung Like its predecessor, the front is stopped by a high-performance pair of brake callipers like featured on both the CBR1000RR and the MotoGP racer.

Held by three horizontal bolts for stronger grip and more distribution of brake pressure the entire surface area of the and gripping large-diameter floating these brakes provide efficient braking control excellent feel at the lever. At the a compact and highly responsive calliper stops a 220mm between sintered metal for a supremely confident balance of performance on par with the world’s narrowly focused and highly racers.


New Generation Electronic Steering Damper

The new CBR600RR receives another innovation from the CBR1000RR in the form of its new Honda Electronic Damper (HESD), which maintain smoothly predictable handling while having little effect on control at speeds. In a further innovation the CBR1000RR Fireblade’s system, the new, more compact unit is secreted away the steering head, where it is to the frame and connected to the lower by an articulating arm that moves the damping vane within its oil

As before, handlebar movement actuates the vane built the unit’s oil chamber to move oil one side of the chamber to other a tight circuit of oil lines by an electronic solenoid. As vehicle and acceleration increase, these oil are gradually constricted by the solenoid to an effective damper against movement of the front fork and such as might occur encountering a large bump in a corner. As vehicle speed the lines gradually open, the damping effect to virtually levels.

This new generation of the Honda Steering Damper offers an level of technological sophistication and operation that effectively Honda’s commitment to pursuing in riding ease and comfort in competitive Super Sports like the new CBR600RR.

New, Compact Instrument Panel

The new also sports a totally new and compact instrument panel with its tachometer featuring more easily distinguished odd and smaller even numbers for recognition and differentiation. As before, a LCD panel provides a high-visibility of vehicle speed, odometer, metre fuel gauge and Brilliant ISO-marked LED indicator are positioned around the perimeter of the

The instrument panel also alive when the ignition key is on with an eye-catching startup that flashes the indicators and the tachometer needle.

Honda Security System (HISS)

To keep the new CBR600RR out of the hands of and joyriders, Honda’s effective anti-theft system features a electronic interlock that the engine from being with anything other the motorcycle’s two original keys. disabling the engine at the very of its ignition system, the system be bypassed by either hot-wiring the or exchanging the ignition switch thus effectively deterring and greatly reducing the chance of theft.

Optional Equipment

The new also features an extensive of optional parts and equipment has been specially designed by Access Corporation to enhance all of its road and track performance. include:

• A 70% black-tinted which impressively accentuates the sharp look of aggressive performance. Height is same as standard model. WVTA-approved.

A motion-and vibration-sensitive Averto system that emits a wail if tampering is detected.
