Honda has officially unveiled the new 2021 CBR600RR, weeks after the Japanese company teased the super sportsbike.
The all-new CBR600RR will go on sale on Friday, September 25 in Asia and Australian markets, as Honda haven’t tweaked the engine enough to get the motorcycle through strict emissions regulations to be sold in Europe and America.
Equipped with a 599cc, liquid-cooled, four-stroke DOHC inline four-cylinder engine, the maximum power output has increased to 14,000rpm – achieved by changing materials for the camshafts, valve strings and the crankshaft to keep the weight down.
The exhaust has also been modified to increase the maximum output to around 119hp.
We first got a glimpse of Honda’s 2021 CBR600RR earlier this month when Honda released a teaser trailer ahead of its launch date.
The CBR600RR electronics now come with an IMU and ride-by-wire system, allowing for more sophisticated ABS actuation, along with the introduction of new throttle modes, traction control, wheelie control and engine braking adjustments.
