Honda's new CBR600RR now sports Repsol livery

Honda CBR600RR now sports MotoGP-inspired livery.

Honda Motorcycles sent us the following information on its limited edition CBR600RR:


Taking inspiration from Honda’s ultimate RC213V race machine, the CBR600RR offers a perfect balance of high-revving power, precise handling, light weight, and a compact overall size.

The Repsol brand could not be more ingrained into Honda’s racing history and the distinct red, orange and white livery complements the sleek, flowing fairing of the CBR600RR.

The CBR600RR Repsol will boast a competitive MLP of just $14,690 (not including registration or dealer pre-delivery fees).

Powered by an extremely compact 599cc, liquid cooled, DOHC, four-cylinder engine, the CBR600RR offers superb handling at all speeds. Its nose-mounted, two-stage ram air system provides a high volume of cool air to the air box for linear power delivery and superb engine performance.

A compact Honda’s Electronic Steering Damper (HESD) helps maintain predictable high-speed handling as well as low-speed manoeuvrability.

Using a Showa Big Piston inverted fork the CBR600RR’s front suspension is smooth and responsive giving excellent front-end feedback. The Unit Pro-Link rear suspension design isolates the chassis from bumps, resulting in more precise handling and better traction.

Developed on Honda’s championship-winning MotoGP bikes, it’s a perfect example of the CBR’s superior engineering.

The CBR600RR’s frame is constructed from twin tubes of diecast aluminium while both lightweight cast aluminium wheels feature the same 12-spoke design used on the CBR1000RR. Powerful stopping power is guaranteed thanks to the CBR600RR’s well-proven brake set-up which uses radial-mounted monoblock front-brake callipers which, making the calliper stiffer means a better brake feel.

Honda’s renowned CBR600RR strikes a perfect balance between performance and handling wrapped up in an ideal middleweight package. Stock is strictly limited to just 30 in Australia.
