Inheriting the advanced technology and styling cultivated in Honda's racing machine "RC211V" that was active in MotoGP (FIM Road Racing World Championship) from 2002 to 2006, high performance water cooling, 4 stroke, DOHC, in series 4 The super sports bike "2007 Honda CBR600RR" with a cylinder 600cc engine mounted on a lightweight aluminum frame will be fully remodeled and released on Thursday, May 24th 2007.

This time, aiming to improve power performance and maneuverability of the motorcycle, in addition to realizing a significant body weight reduction of about 8 kg in dry weight compared to the conventional model, we will adopt a sleek cowl design pursuing aerodynamics and functionality. As a result, the driving performance has been greatly improved. Furthermore, in addition to the electronically controlled fuel injection system (PGM-DSFI) that realizes combustion at the ideal air-fuel ratio by supplying precise fuel with two injectors per cylinder, it also adopts a twin catalyzer and other environmental loads. Considering the reduction, it is a model that has both high exercise performance while complying with the 2007 domestic emission regulations.

The engine has achieved further compactness such as shortening the front-rear length by 30.5 mm by reviewing the spacing between the crankshaft and countershaft, and has achieved a weight reduction of approximately 2 kg. In addition, the output characteristics of the engine have been reviewed to improve ease of handling in the mid-range.

The frame has achieved a weight reduction of approximately 700g by reducing the weight of welded parts and reducing the wall thickness by reducing the number of components from 11 to 4 while ensuring sufficient rigidity of the parts. .. In addition, the mass is centralized by reducing the weight of heavy parts that are far from the weight of the vehicle, improving ease of handling.

The styling adopts a cowl design that takes air management into consideration, such as stable air intake into the air cleaner box and a shape that is effective for heat dissipation of the engine. In addition, it has an advanced styling with an aggressive image that takes into consideration the centralization of mass.

"CBR600RR" was released in Japan in 2003. As a middle-class supersport model, it has been well received, especially in Europe.

2007 Honda CBR600RR (EBL-PC40) Price

Planned sales volume (domestic/annual) : 1,500 units
Manufacturer's suggested retail price : 1,076,250 yen (main unit price excluding consumption tax 1,025,000 yen)

2007 Honda CBR600RR (EBL-PC40) Features


The new engine of Honda CBR600RR (EBL-PC40), which is about 2 kg lighter and more compact, is effective in engine power by sending a large amount of air from the air duct in the center of the front of the front upper cowl to the air cleaner box through the flow path beside the steering head. Adopts a direct air induction system that creates a unique effect. Together with the adoption of PGM-DSFI, it effectively produces output and clears the 2007 domestic emission regulation values ​​due to the synergistic effect with the air injection system and twin catalyzer system of the exhaust gas reburning mechanism.

In addition, by adopting a new shape intake/exhaust port, the output characteristics in the middle rotation range have been reviewed, and a new program has been adopted for the IACV (intake air control valve) of the throttle body, depending on the engine rotation speed. By finely controlling the opening, the amount of intake air when the throttle is low is optimized, and the combustion efficiency is greatly improved in the high rotation and low load range. This produces stable combustion during deceleration and when shifting from deceleration to acceleration, enabling more delicate engine control.

Chassis (frame, suspension)

The chassis has achieved a significant weight reduction of approximately 4.5 kg together with peripheral body parts, such as the adoption of a hollow aluminum die-cast frame that has achieved weight reduction. In addition, along with the compactness of the engine, the wheelbase has been shortened by 15 mm, and the dimensions have been reviewed and the mass has been further centralized. Honda's original advanced mechanism, the shock unit of the rear suspension is mounted only on the upper part of the swing arm and the lower link, and it has a structure that is not directly linked to the upper part of the frame. Together with this, the turning performance is improved.

In addition, the outer tube has an inverted front fork with a black alumite finish that is resistant to rust and scratches, improving the attractiveness of the product in every detail.

Body color: Italian Red.

By adopting a front upper, middle and under cowl divided into three parts, in addition to weight reduction, improvement of aerodynamic characteristics and consideration for mass concentration contributes to light handling with excellent responsiveness, functionality. It is a styling design that pursues.

The front upper cowl is placed 30mm behind the conventional model and mounted closer to the steering head to reduce the effect of the moment of inertia during cornering on handling. The middle cowl has a T-shape with a significantly reduced area, giving consideration to the efficient heat dissipation effect of the engine. In addition, the under cowl has a more compact shape, which effectively supplies cooling air to the engine while reducing air resistance.

Other features

  • The electronically controlled steering damper "HESD (HESD)" that controls the damping characteristics of the steering according to the driving conditions, such as effectively reducing disturbance and vibration from the road surface when driving at high speeds and maintaining a light handling feeling when driving at low speeds. Honda Electronic Steering Damper) ”is newly adopted.
  • A new lightweight titanium material has been adopted inside the silencer (silencer), which has a more compact shape in line with the slimming of the rear seat cowl.
  • H・I・S・S, Honda's original anti-theft mechanism using electronic interlock, which does not start the engine unless the ID chip built in the main key and the ID inside the engine control ECU match. (Honda Ignition Security System) is adopted.
  • Coloring is set to a total of 4 colors, Italian Red, Pearl Sunbeam White, Glint Wave Blue Metallic, and Graphite Black, allowing you to select according to your preference.
