MSRP $11,199

Is Honda’s CBR600RR the perfect sportbike? Plenty of riders think so. And it’s easy to see why. First off, it offers a near magical combination of light weight, free-revving power, compliant suspension and all in a package that’s sized just right. Next, the CBR600RR has been honed to perfection on the track, where it dominates the World Supersport championship scene. And then there’s the CBR’s awe-inspiring degree of Honda technology: tuned twin-spar frame, Programmed fuel injection, the Honda Electronic Steering Damper (HESD) and Honda’s available Combined ABS that all add up to put the CBR600RR way ahead of anything in the 600 class.
