Honda has just announced a new CBR600RR for 2010. The 2010 motorcycle appears to be an evolution of the 2009 and clearly with bold new graphics. The bike includes some braking performance improvements as well. This is part of American Honda Motor Company's Powersports Division announced today and is the third new release of 2010 motorcycle models. This on-road motorcycle release follows the earlier announcements of Honda's 2010 Fury, scooters, dirt bikes and ATVs.
"We are very excited about announcing these four street bikes for 2010," said Powersports Press Manager Bill Savino. "Within this mix we have a new cruiser, a new lightweight touring bike and two CBR sport bikes. The cruiser offers a whole new look for Honda, our new touring bike delivers lightweight, nimble handling, a stylish fairing plus saddlebags for the long haul or daily commute. The CBRs continue to set the standards of performance for the full-on sporting genre. This sets the stage for a great year in 2010 and there will be additional street model announcements later this fall."
Over the years, no other 600cc machine has won more magazine comparisons and AMA championships than Honda's CBR600RR. Traditionally this motorcycle has offered a likable balance of power and handling. The new CBR600RR claims to blend a light and compact chassis with impeccable power delivery for a combination that is set to live-up to past expectations. The motorcycle will also be available with Honda's unique Combined ABS for the pinnacle of middleweight sportbike braking performance.
The 2010 CBR600RR will be available is pearl orange/black and "leyla"; the new special custom graphic. The C-ABS model will be available in red/black only. Dealer availability and MSRP is yet to be determined.
