2010 Honda CBR600RR First Look

Friday, September 4, 2009
For 2010 Big Red once again sticks with what it already has, only giving the CBR600RR the traditional BNG (Bold New Graphics). It gets two “exciting” new looks: Pearl Orange/Black and Leyla, while the C-ABS-equipped model remains only available in the traditional Honda Red/Black. And even though this rounds out the changes, it’s hard to argue they need to do much to the versatile little CBR. That said we had expected for a bit more. Maybe 2011…

BOLD NEW GRAPHICS! Well, you build it well enough the year before, maybe you don't need to build another...

No other 600cc machine has won more magazine comparisons and AMA championships than Honda’s CBR600. Striking the ideal balance of power and handling, the new CBR600RR blends a light and compact chassis with impeccable power delivery for a combination that’s hard to beat. Also available with the Honda’s unique Combined ABS for the pinnacle of sportbike braking performance, the 2010 CBR600RR continues to set the standard for the middleweight class.

New for 2010

i own a 2009 cbr and with out a doubt is a great bike . and its performance is excilent it can hang with 2009 zx 10 r up to 120 mph. if you think this bike is slow you are sadly mistaken . and this bikes handling is the best by far and the most comfterbale . im not knocking the other bikes in its class they are all great bikes . im a master mechanic for over 20 yrs ,and if you are looking for a durable and dependable 600series honda is with out a doubt the best

KID BLADE -cooL BUT lazy  July 29, 2010 02:09 AM
Im a Huge CBR600RR Fan its My dream 599cc,but ithink due 2 its Huge Success Honda Have Become lazyWhy?less color Choice,Same look,Just new Covers From 09.Honda is paying 2 much attention 2 the Fireblade,Look AT its New Color choices, Amazing but wit its lil sis the 600RR They let me down.But per4mance wise im happy(c-ABS),I just think on the Appearance they have not worked Hard enough,And why does the 600 have no nick name?

Quentin -more colors!  April 25, 2010 12:11 PM
Deadly bike! Runs fast,smooth and gives you confidance. More colors like maybe red and black?
Wayne -Leyla  March 17, 2010 08:41 PM
The black and white portrait look interesting and different. The orange and black look cool too. And the zx6r is okay if you are willing to accept the fact that you are sitting on a kawasaki.
Bill -Honda the best  February 26, 2010 11:15 PM
I have a 09 and love it ....alot of attention , other bikes stil come around me and don't even know what is it... ha ha , Jonda hasbeen always the BEST !!!!!!!
Manny -Simple and great design  February 22, 2010 10:18 PM
It's aimed at the right crowd. Those who look down upon this bike have different intentions and different lifestyles then the intended 600rr buyer has. If you don't like this bike then go say something great about your bike, not something negative towards this great accomplishment. Good job Honda. I would just suggest a makeover for this changing market.
Daniel -Works  October 23, 2009 06:23 PM
The graphics are good except for the inlayed extras (cards 777 etc..) The body could use little updating but overall as much as I don't want to say it, it's the best one out there. I'm just going to assume these aren't the only colors that are coming out.
gully mi seh -great job  October 18, 2009 11:22 AM
i think the females gonna love this color scheme its all about them right there what does the guys get
Kyle U. -:)  October 9, 2009 10:37 AM
i think this honda needs a big engine makeover. it sucks. and the outside has an old design.
Robert -Sorry John, thats her hair,not tribal flames^^^  September 9, 2009 03:09 PM
I think Honda did a good with the new graphics. The whole design flows great from front to rear. Why change a 99% perfect bike. Maybe a few more color schemes, and make ABS available on all color options. Other than that, good job Honda.
sp3d2 -????  September 5, 2009 05:31 AM
u guys think that with just a new design, than it's going to beat zx6r 2009? i dont think so.
John -Andy warhol edition?  September 4, 2009 04:17 PM
What is this a pathetic attempt to connect with gen Y? It looks like a hot mess I could barley tell there was a girl there and what the hell does do those half assed tribal flame things have anything to do with the rest of the scheme on the bike its like they took a frat house and a 60's art gallery and slammed them together. I guess I just don't get what they were going for with this design, Honda getting lazy.
