New Bikes

Could the Honda CBR600RR be making a comeback?

Since losing its place in the Honda line up, the CBR600RR has been a bike that many had hoped would make a return

THE Honda CBR600RR (or is that RR-R?) could be making a comeback, in the form of an all-new bike that could look something like the 2020 Honda Fireblade!

Ever since the CBR600RR was dropped from the European and Asian range, its 600cc engine fell foul of the incoming 2017 Euro4 emissions regulations, the Honda supersport offerings have been a little too soft for some.

The CBR650R is a very good little bike, with miles more comfort, usability and real-world appeal than the race-bred CBR600RR. But despite tumbling sales in the 600cc supersport market, a once-dominant force in motorcycle sales, some people still have a hankering for a full-fat, race replica 600 machine.

The guys and girls over at Young Machine also seem to think so, as they are teasing us with the image you see at the top of the page, purporting to show what a 2021 CBR600RR could look like.

A quick disclaimer before we go on, the picture is a rendering by the magazine, not an official Honda image. That said, Young Machine has a knack of getting these renderings spookily on key – it’s almost like somebody from with the factory is feeding them information – imagine that!

What we have then is a CBR600RR in a 2020 Fireblade style. Admittedly, the guys at YM haven’t done much to the image, other than change the colour scheme and add a slightly revised seat unit.

Can you still buy a Honda CBR600RR?

Let’s not forget, while the CBR600RR is a discontinued model in the UK and Europe, there are still new bikes being sold in this configuration in other areas. Our friends from over the pond, for example, can still pick up a brand new CBR600RR for $11,799 – more than half the cost of the CBR1000RR-R SP.
