Euro colors will be: Repsol and HRC according to the Italian website and the bike show. Didn't see the red one, but I suppose it's possible it'll come out here, too.

Now interested to see if the US version (HRC scheme) will come with those CF add-ons. Also, wondering if the HISS is now standard for US. Would be good to be able to order those parts (CF) from a US distributor, rather than from the UK.


EDIT: Nevermind, just compared pics from earlier in the thread. So, the UK HRC version gets the CF bits, and the US gets nothing

I'd say this is the one improvement in addition to the wheels and BPF, though I'm not sure how much I'd notice that. The lines aren't great, the exhaust plastic covers look bad and the lines don't flow all that well, especially with that plastic bit between the tank and the side fairings. The cover on the left side for the ABS version is ridiculous. It's fine, but I don't really think that's good enough considering the competition unless reviews prove Honda's tweeks to the suspension have made it a lot better.

However, the new Kawi ZX-6R is awesome! It felt really compact so I'm not sure it'll be the best for bigger guys, but it felt good for my 5'3" frame. I think that bike is going to slaughter all the other Japanese bikes with the new style and upgrades/extras it's got. The only thing I don't like about it is the integrated front lights on the frame - not sure why they didn't put them in the mirrors. It has a really nice finish. If I were buying a new bike this year in the mid-size sport category, it would be the ZX-6R without hesitation based on specs and looks, but of course I'd wait for reviews just in case.

The Triumph Daytona 675 and 675R are a LOT better in person than in the pics I've seen. As usual, it's very narrow. I think it's lower because I can touch the ground a lot easier now than before on it so I'm not sure if it has new ergos or what. I felt really stretched out on it last year when I sat on the 2012 model. The bike looks a little long with the stretched out nose, but the new fairings look decent in person. I think I prefer the previous version, but the new one's pretty good and the exhaust isn't as bad as it looked in some pics.

Here's 1 pic from today...

Nice Repsol girl ;) thx for posting up these pics, i agree about the 636 and i havent even seen them yet. lookn forward to seeing the 675R as well. Good year for bike shows for sure. The new CBR is nice w the added upgrades i think we just wish they did a bit more (gauge cluster) sigs in mirrors etc. We will see how testing and reviews go later this year; it will have some big time comp w the new Kawi though

sorta disappointed.
The side and rear look more like 05-06

front looks random.
no major upgrades

why would I buy this bike when I can buy a GSXR-600 that's got so many more bells and whistles ?

honestly, I like the way my 05 looks over that.

Its just you.

I'm joking, the red is pretty slick. my 05 was all blue until I put a black tail on it, so the block colour doesn't bother me. I still maintain its the front I can't get on with, (sorry TheX I've tried to let it grow on me), I never liked the front on the 07+ models either which is why I never upgraded. I know some say it doesn't matter how it looks if it performs well but if I'm going to put out a small fortune I want to love the thing I'm looking at.

I guess I was expecting something closer to the blade, which was a bit dumb TBH considering the 600 & 1K haven't looked similar since 2006.

The red sure looks better than the HRC and Repsol because the lines flow decently. I think it still needs a black swingarm and passenger pegs (or none) and then it'll be very nice. However, the other 2 don't look very good imo.

I guess Tripage will have no shortage of work PCing swingarms if this bike sells in decent numbers.

This just gets me even more excited for SBK next year. It's going to be a showdown between Ducati's Panigali and Honda with their RC213. Johnny Rae might finally be a hole shot for a title next year. Can't wait!

Not a fan. It looks to me like a few others have said. Honda took bits and pieces from 03-12, added a new front end and bammmm. The new 2013 Honda CBR 600rr. I do not see many upgrading from their current bikes to this new model. There is not enough change IMO.

I went on the honda website and it looks like there are 6 new bikes. Im glad honda has the cbr500r now because kawa came out with the ninja 300 and the cbr250r is hard to compete with that. But this new cbr600 isnt going to be competitive enough when it comes to the design. This design might fly if it was for a non RR. But because its the 600rr it needs to be an aggressive design, the new one is too tone down.

I did hear that some time ago that what he has for a street bike was the CB1kR. No big deal. Nice bike. I'm sure he doesn't ride on the street for the same thrills most of us paying yobs do. This year during his retirement tour he was asked about coming back many times. Said he'd love to ride some of the tracks on track days and enjoy it more. Said something about probably riding a CBR1000 and that is was enough for him. People might be surprised how many professional road racers do not ride sport bikes or in many cases do not even ride on the street. Jorge Lorenzo just got his street license last year. If you've been getting your ya-ya's out on the best tracks in the world on the best bikes in the world the street I'm sure is a frustrating let down.

To keep this on topic I'm still underwhelmed by the new CBR600RR's looks. Growing on me? Nope.

Disappointed to say the least. The 07-12 CBRs look much better. I do like the wheels and factory integrated tail light though. Looks like I will be keeping my bike rather than picking up the 2013.

The side of the 2013 CBR 600rr looks like sh*t. It looks more dated than even the 04's .. WTH is up w/ those horrid fairing lines and bolts? If i wanted a race fairing kit, I would have bought one. (kill it w/ fire)

Pretty sure Honda knew that when they decided on this course of action.

Current 600 owners may not get the new bike but they didn't spend a ton of money designing a whole new bike anyway. They likely saw that it worked alright for them with the 1000RR, so they did it here too.

You're right, but looking on the lateral side, it's not so!
I prefer the first picture only for the beautiful girl !!!!
The front is not good and the rear is taken totally from the 03-06 model!
I'm going to see it this weekend. A wise friend of mine told my that I cannot judge a motorcycle without seeing it live!
