Honda’s revival of CBR6000rr is getting much momentum. Effectively it is going to be a 2021 model. We could see a few cues stacked from its elder sibling, CBR1000rr-r.
Honda has now released a teaser of CBR600rr.
While in our last article we did mention about its patent and CARB documents.
Here we talk about what it will get. The new CBR600rr is not for the European market and as of now is made explicitly for the Asian market.
The front looks similar to its elder sibling CBR1000rr-r. Plus looking at the video, we could also see the winglets to reduce the downforce.
The engine and frame remain similar when compared to the current model. We don’t expect any change here.
At least we are not aware if Honda plans to make any changes in the engine.
CBR600rr may also get a sizeable black muffler and expected to reach 115 hp.
The standard electronic equipment will have riding modes, throttle by wire, traction control, full led headlights and dash, IMU-based race ABS, assist & slipper clutch, grip heater and quick shifter.
On 9th August 2020 during the Japan road racing championship at the Sugo circuit, Honda plans to reveal more information. It could well lead Honda to unveil the CBR600rr in November 2020.
The 2021 CBR600rr will go head-on against R6 and ZX-6R.
Again it will be interesting to see if Honda also plans to bring the ‘SP’ version similar to its elder sibling-like CBR1000rr-r.
As the CBR1000rr-r SP comes with high-grade components like the electronic suspensions made by ÖHLINS, as well as front suspension callipers made by BREMBO.
Lastly, we said Honda might well dubb the machine by name CBR600rr. You may never know the extra ‘r’ can comes in front of ‘r’ similar like CBR1000rr-r.
However, we don’t see that is going to happen.
