I really like those RIMS!!!!! Wonder if they will fit on my 09 without much hassle!! Wonder if that Showa big Piston Fork is a lot better than the standard forks on the 09RR and if that would constitute a possible refit as well...

It reminded me more of the older R6s. Honestly, I'm not really digging the looks. I think it's funny though that they brought back the vents and in tail taillight though. I thought for sure the center up exhaust would be gone and we would have seen a 1000RR tail and low sung exhaust. Now Honda is all alone in that aspect.

I do not like the nose at all, I will def be keeping my 08. I can not believe they didnt do a major overhaul. The Kawi 636 is going to destroy them in sales this year.

pros & cons

like the wheels & forks

hate the front end with that big hole in the middle, that's exactly what put me off the the 07+ models

conclusion, I won't be buying one, looks like its the blade for me

Pretty much the same as what they did with the 03-04 and 05-06 bikes...

Wonder what 'revised ecu settings' actually means? Could be 'Sorry but the greenies have gotten to us again so you get less power in order for us to meet new emissions laws'
With Kawi kicking Honda's tail in the HP rating department I certainly hope not. Kawi in all their sport bikes have been outclassing Hondas in that regard. Honda needs to save face and make a competitive bike or risk losing to the 636 when the shoot-out come up.

Agreed. Good call on the resemblance to the older R6's. Seems so... outdated.

The red color is... too red. And for someone like me, who is a fiend for red, that's saying something. Too plain.

No plan for one of these to replace my 09.

I agree. The red is too plain. Only thing I really like is the new wheels and suspension. And the fact that theirs a 600 repsol now. That nose just kills me though. Bleh.

I think it's because this is the first model 600RR without any added black plastic trim on it other than the exhaust cover. I never would have thought I missed the tank panels but I agree with you totally. Solid color is plain as can be.

Glad they didn't kill the undertail exhaust though.


I guess I'm also going to be in the very small minority that don't mind the 3 spoke wheels and isn't too crazy about the new ones.

I wish they would have put a picture up of the gauge cluster. Curious on how that looks too.

My guess would be the same style. The new cluster on the 1K was one of the big upgrades that they were showing off. No mention of it here but we'll just have to wait and see.

Don't see anything mentioned in the literature so it's probably the same.

Also, is it just me or the silver frame on the Repsol version look like a matte color. Not a raw aluminum look like the swingarm. Hell, the 2012 Red/White frame looks more polished than that one. Maybe it's just the picture but it just seems odd to me.

I am not sure on the styling myself and would have to see it in the flesh to decide but even worse, the C-ABS model is only available in that ghastly all red colour scheme which I am sure I don't like and since my 09 has C-ABS and I am sold on its merits I doubt my 09 will be replaced by this bike.

From the side shot it looked like it also. Another let done honestly if it is. I really liked what they did with the 1000RRs cluster. Gear position on a 600RR along with a lap timer would have been nice.

Considering the x's cover a larger surface area than the ticks... it's a no for me.

Personally there is not enough for me to get rid of my 08 but I dont know what you guys are fussin about. I think the bike looks great. I like how they show the engine again instead of covering it up like on the 09s. The tail vents are sweet and those wheels are amazing. Crossing fingers older models can use them. I can understand the front end responses but still it looks better than everything else on the market... esp the 636 which is one hideous looking bike imo. I hope this new cbr takes the reins back in the shoot outs. Either way the cbr500 is awesome news...cant wait for my sister to move up from the cbr250.

I have to admit that showing the engine again is nice (unlike my 09) which also probably means that Honda went to some lengths to reduce the size of the C-ABS modules which also probably means lower weight (the old system added around 20 pounds to the weight of the bike if I remember well enough) which is all well and good but I can't help thinking that the engine showing and the tail vents are detailed and while they add to the whole package they can't make up for things like the all red colour scheme on the ABS model, at least not for me anyway!
