    Take the road less traveled

    Features may include:

    Engine & Drivetrain
    • Low-end torque & top-end performance

    The DOHC liquid-cooled parallel-twin engine uses a square bore & stroke of 67 mm (the same bore size as used on the CBR600RRA) x 66.8 mm for an optimum combination of strong low-end torque and horsepower and excellent top-end performance.

    • Compact engine, minimal vibration

    Engine vibration is kept to a minimum by using crank pins phased at 180 degrees and a balancer shaft behind the cylinders, which also contributes to the engines compact size.

    • Crisp throttle response

    PGM-FI electronic fuel injection keeps the engine running efficiently in all conditions and ensures crisp throttle response.

    • Runs smoothly at high output levels

    Careful flow analysis of the cooling system resulted in a water pump thats small and lightweight, yet still more than capable of keeping the engine running its best at high output levels.

    • Maximized air-intake

    In order to maximize air-intake and exhaust efficiency, the profile from the air cleaner through the intake ports to the exhaust pipe was made as straight as possible.

    • Excellent efficiency

    The four valves in each of the DOHC cylinder heads have narrow stems, thereby reducing weight and friction and increasing efficiency.

    • Reduced friction

    A light and compact roller-rocker-arm assembly and shim-type valve adjustment allows a lower valve-spring load for reduced friction and a compact cylinder head.

    • Improved durability

    The pins in the silent cam chain have been treated with vanadium, which both reduces friction and improves durability. The lightweight pistons use the same advanced manufacturing process as those found in the CBR600RRA. To ensure precise cylinder shape, the engine uses the same centrifugal-cast thin-wall sleeves as found in the CBR600RRA.

    • Less friction, improved performance

    The oil pumps internal relief structure uses the same design as found in the CBR1000RR, which reduces friction, improves aeration performance and simplifies the shape of the oil pan.

    • Smooth shifting

    The design of the shifting mechanism in the six-speed gearbox results in smooth, precise shifting.

    Chassis & Suspension
    • Responsive with desired feedback

    The lightweight diamond-shaped steel frame was designed to allow a certain degree of yield, which enables it to better respond to changes in the road surface and to transmit just the right amount of feedback to the rider.

    • Comfortable & sporty ride

    The Pro-Link® rear suspension with preload-adjustable shock and the conventional 41 mm telescopic fork are calibrated for a comfortable but sporty ride.

    • Good rider balance at stops

    The rear section of the frame was designed to facilitate a seat height of 810 mm, which allows most riders to easily plant their feet on the ground when stopped.

    • Adjustable fork

    The front fork offers spring-preload adjustment so you can tailor the ride just the way you want it.

    • Lightweight wheels

    Lightweight cast aluminum wheels with Y-shaped spokes not only look trick, they also contribute to the bikes excellent manoeuvrability.

    • Reduced unsprung weight

    Wave brake rotors with superlative heat-dissipating qualities are lighter than conventional discs of the same diameter, which help to further reduce the bikes unsprung weight.

    • ABS braking control

    A dual-piston brake caliper up front and a single-piston caliper at the back provide strong but easily controlled stopping power. Plus, ABS gives you extra peace of mind on reduced-traction road surfaces.
