Powered by a 600cc liquid-cooled, four-cylinder engine, the 2013 Honda CBR600RR has the potential to work up enough speed to dominate a racetrack or roadway. The motor generates even more power thanks to a redesigned ram-air intake system that gives you a little more oomph on the track, along with a better throttle response when you reach higher rpms.
The body of the bike was inspired by MotoGP machines, so you'll definitely feel as if you should be on the racetrack. Aerodynamic bodywork reduces drag while increasing efficiency, which allows you to get better mileage and handling thanks to improved wind deflection.
The 2013 Honda CBR600RR comes equipped with a few upgraded features
that make for a significantly improved riding experience. You can
enjoy a smoother ride with the help of a new 41mm big piston fork
front suspension, which is more responsive to the machine and keeps
the internal pressure down. New 12-spoke wheels, LED tail lights
and an electric steering damper are included to help the rider stay
safe on the pavement.
A 4.8-gallon engine with a 0.9-gallon fuel reserve provides an adequate amount of gas to keep the machine on the road, and even with a full tank it only weights about 410 pounds. As a bonus, the tank is quite centrally located, giving you easy access to the heart of the bike while also centering the weight.
