About the 2003 Honda CBR600RR

The Honda CBR600RR is a 599 cc (36.6 cu in) sport bike made by Honda since 2003, part of the CBR series. The CBR600RR was marketed as Honda’s top-of-the-line middleweight sport bike. The 2003 CBR600RR was the first Honda to use Unit Pro-Link rear suspension.

The Honda CBR600RR received a major revision in 2005 with new bodywork, fully adjustable inverted front forks, disc brakes with radial-mounted four-piston calipers, and a new aluminum frame, swingarm and rear shock. The midrange power was also increased.

The completely new engine in 2007-2008 year model was smaller and lighter than its predecessor, the designers having used careful positioning of all internal components to achieve reductions in the motor’s length, width, and height, as well as reducing weight by 2 kg (4.4 lb).

Changes in 2009-2012 includes update to the engine such as changes to its pistons, cylinder head and exhaust. The CBR600RR’s engine also received a new high resistance valve lifter and a popup valve system inherited from the CBR1000RR.

From 2013-2017 CBR600RR includes new 12-spoke wheels, revised ECU settings, and a fine-tuned ram-air system to increase torque. It also gets a new Showa “Big Piston Fork” and retuned rear shock in a new bodywork. And on 21 August 2020, the 2021 CBR600RR was released.
