- Honda CBR600RR race-ready version unveiled
- Built by HRC for track use only
- To be available in limited numbers
Honda’s racing division HRC has taken the wraps off the race-ready 2020 CBR600RR.
The motorcycle will be made available in January 2021 in limited numbers. However, Honda hasn’t revealed the exact number of motorcycles it will offer. The HRC-spec CBR600RR is a track-only machine and is fitted with components to fit the bill. To begin with, the bike gets thicker disc brakes up front, purpose-built suspension, a new exhaust, a larger radiator, different throttle. HRC has also added the ability to adjust the fuel injection mapping on the motorcycle.
HRC has not revealed the power output of the special CBR600RR although we can expect it to surely push past the standard version’s 120bhp output. The race-ready version will also be lighter than the production model. And while the IMU electronics remain the same, the cornering ABS has been removed to make it as raw as possible.
As for styling, the HRC-spec CBR600RR looks similar to the road-going version although it gets a new black/white/grey paint scheme, a race seat as well as race tail section. The HRC CBR600RR will be offered in Japan before global markets. Nonetheless, it will not make its way to India.
