Penang, 15th April 2021 – Boon Siew Honda has set the racing circuits alive with the Malaysian debut of Honda’s Super Sports model – The All New Honda CBR600RR. Developed as a right-sized Super Sports model, the CBR600RR enables riders to enjoy high potential of a base production race model in their everyday lives.
CBR600RR has acted as a driving force behind the success of many champions who won production-based motorcycle racing competitions including the FIM Supersport World Championship, Asia Road Racing Championship and the All Japan Road Race Championship.
Some highlights of the All New Honda CBR600RR are:
· 599cc liquid-cooled 4-cylinder engine with high-power yet controllable output
· Styling that realizes outstanding aerodynamic performance and functional beauty
· Electronic control technologies and equipment for fun riding and comfort:
o Riding Modes for customized performance (Power Mode, torque control, wheelie control, and engine brake control)
o Full-colour TFT display meter to provide the rider with abundant information
o Emergency Stop Signal system, which responds to sudden braking and promptly alerts following vehicles by flashing hazard lamps quickly
o Honda Electronic Steering Damper (HESD) and Assist/Slipper Clutch for a smooth and comfortable ride
The CBR600RR is infused with the CBR series core values of "Total Control", which combines superior performance with aggressive, sleek design. Carrying the “Awaken The Race” concept, The CBR600RR is equipped with the latest electronic controls and aerodynamic technology to realize an overall superior performance and the “pleasure of manoeuvring”.
Powering the CBR600RR is a 599cc, liquid-cooled 4-stroke DOHC inline 4-cylinder engine which is designed to pursue overwhelming power, torque, high response and ease of handling. It generates a peak power of 89kW @ 14,000rpm and peak torque of 63Nm @11,500rpm.
The CBR600RR is equipped with an Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) sensor to detect the angle position of the motorcycle. This component works in conjunction with the Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) and the Engine Control Unit (ECU), keeping the rear tires from slipping when accelerating and/or cornering.
There are three riding modes that provide comfort and a high riding sensation – Fast Riding, Fun Riding and Comfortable Riding. The CBR600RR also provides an option for the rider to create their own two riding modes, according to their riding character by adjusting power (5 levels), HSTC (9 levels + off), wheelie control (3 levels + off) and engine brake (3 levels).
The CBR600RR is also equipped with the Honda Electronic Steering Damper (HESD) with three adjustment modes (hard, medium, soft). This component works together with the IMU and speed sensors to increase stability when riding at high speeds and cornering.
As for braking, it comes with a 2-ch ABS system; with 4 piston callipers 310mm double disc brakes in the front and single piston calliper 220mm single disc brake in the rear. Stability is further supported with 41mm fully adjustable upside-down Showa front suspension and Showa Pro-Link rear suspension.
The Super Sports concept of the CBR600RR is strongly highlighted through its design, which incorporates aerodynamic technologies which were fed back from racing activities. While the Dual LED headlights give it an aggressive impression; its sleek frontal area, embedded winglets and a compact rear exhaust amplifies its aerodynamic design.
The CBR600RR is equipped with a wealth of other rider-friendly features. The Assist/Slipper Clutch allow for smooth upshifting/downshifting of gears when riding and low-reaction clutch spring reducing the physical operating force of the clutch lever, so you can enjoy a smoother performance. It is also equipped with a full-colour thin film transistor (TFT) liquid-crystal display meter with easier visibility thanks to the brightness of the screen automatically adjusting to surrounding conditions.
Lastly, the bike also has Emergency Stop Signal (ESS) feature, which automatically activate hazard lights when the brakes are operated to alert surroundings and avoid possible accidents.
