The Honda CBR600RR is a 599 cc (36.6 cu in) motorcycle that has been produced by Honda since 2003 as part of the CBR series. The CBR600RR was advertised as Honda’s top-of-the-line middleweight sport bike, replacing the 2002 Supersport World Champion 2001–2006 CBR600F4i, which was subsequently repositioned as the milder, more street-oriented sport bike behind the technically superior and uncompromising race-replica CBR600RR. It continued to win the Supersport World Championship until 2003, then again in 2008, and again in 2010.
The CBR600F4i, Honda’s previous 600-class sport bike, was regarded as a blend of practicality and performance, as capable as other Supersport-racing 600s but a more docile and pleasant street bike in comparison to the rival Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R, Suzuki GSX-R600, and Yamaha YZF-R6. When it was first debuted in 1999, the CBR600F “beat off racier opponents on the track while still managing to be a more practical streetbike,” as Motorcyclist put it, “one golf club that functions like a complete bag.”
Honda changed to a more aggressive, less compromising strategy with the successor 2003 CBR600RR. “We created the RR in a completely different style than any previous model, amid the churning brawl that was the middleweight class at the time,” Honda’s CBR-RR Project Leader Hiroyuki Ito commented. Honda has traditionally built a roadbike and then adapted it for racing. With the RR, though, we first created a prototype racer and then handed it over to the production department.” It is standard practice among sport bike manufacturers such as Buell, Ducati, Honda, Kawasaki, Suzuki, Triumph, and Yamaha. to rotate an outdated model down to the next tier of a product line as it is eclipsed by a model with the newest technology.
The 2003 CBR600RR was built on the Honda RC211V MotoGP bike’s innovations and had a similar design. It was the first Honda to feature Unit Pro-Link rear suspension, a variation on a single rear shock absorber with the top mount attached to the rear swingarm subframe to assist isolate unwanted forces sent to the steering head. It was also the first vehicle to feature Honda’s Dual Stage Fuel Injection (PGM-DSFI), which was derived straight from the RC211V. The adoption of Honda’s revolutionary ‘Hollow Fine Die Cast’ frame technology, in which sand casting molds were given a ceramic inside coating, allowed the five-piece aluminum frame’s thickness to be reduced from 3.5 mm to 2.5 mm.
The 2003 model was technically carried over to 2004, with the addition of an oxygen sensor.
