A modern sportbike can be an uncompromising thing. Tuned for maximum performance, things like comfort, ease of use and everyday practicality tend to go out the window. Not so with the CBR600R, from the beginning these very traits were carefully included in the overall concept. There’s no arguing the CBR600RR’s performance credentials have been at the front of the battle for 600 class race supremacy since its introduction; in fact, it just won the Canadian National Championship for the third year in a row. But perhaps even more impressive than its long list of race and championship wins is its reputation on the street as a completely functional everyday bike with excellent durability. Perhaps it’s this reputation for durability that lead to the CBR600’s engine being selected as the basis the Moto 2 World Championship racing machines.
