The 2009 engine of CBR600RR had been slightly changed with new exhaust, cylinder head and pistons to gain mid-range oomph and a smoother power delivery. Now the engine can get more torque between 6000-10,000 rpm without compromising the top-end power. A new-style bellypan now covers the whole engine and it is capable of generating incredible performance.
Design And Comfort
The CBR600RR takes after the Honda RC211V MotoGP bike with the similar physical appearance. Both the bikes are inspired and derived from the Honda's MotoGP technology. It comes with almost everything that gives the rider a peak of confidence to zoom around the racetrack. It owns radial brakes, fully adjustable suspension and an electronically-controlled speed sensitive steering damper. But it misses a slipper clutch. Other striking features on this coveted machine are Dual Stage Fuel Injection System, MotoGP style center-up exhaust system, centrally located fuel tank, Multi-Action System inverted front fork. The line beam headlights also feature three-piece multi-reflector design. Honda CBR600RR stands as one of the world's most successful bikes with the latest upgrade in 2009 Edition.
Ride And Handling
The new Honda CBR600RR employs an injection of midrange to make it more powerful. Now it has got a sharper performance as the wheelbase has been shortened and this enhances the steering power. The Honda CBR600RR's MotoGP styling is sleek and proves better handling capability. The suspension is fully adjustable both in the front and rear. The suspension action and control is phenomenal and the brakes are of top notch. This is a machine that boosts the confidence and we can feel the ride of Ducati 1098R. The new CBR works as the conventional machine but in the emergency it can stop instantly keeping the wheels from locking. It also distributes the braking between front and rear callipers to give maximum stability in all conditions.
