Alongside its new CBR600RR, Honda’s revealed a limited edition HRC version of the middleweight sportbike – and it’s ready to race.
Although we were disappointed to hear that Honda’s new CBR600RR won’t be coming to Europe for 2021, there’s still hope. The factory’s just revealed a special edition of the fire breathing middleweight. We don’t know for sure that it’ll make it over here – but it does mean the doors not shut. Yet.
Developed by the HRC race department, the track-ready CBR600RR gets a new ECU, a larger radiator, a new exhaust, larger brake discs and a different suspension setup – and sheds a bit of weight by losing the mirrors, lights and numberplate.
The limited edition machine is ready made for Superstock/Supersport competition, but if you want to take one racing, you better talk to your dealer. They’ll have to request one from Honda – and that’s only if they’re allowed to sell HRC kit in the first place. You’ve got a bit of time though, as they won’t be available until the start of 2021. No news on pricing just yet, but chances it’ll be a good chunk on top of the ten (and a bit) grand of the standard machine.
