Collarbone is tip-top, titanium Thanks for remembering.

Found the spec sheet in Google Search. No slipper. Pretty lame, considering all the competitors have one. I ain't scared of wheel chatter, but it seems that would have been a simple modification.

I am curious if it will be possible to retrofit the ECU, Shock and forks, and wheels.

I suggest we write a very angry letter to Mr. V-tech Honda!!! I'll start!!

Dear Mr. V Honda

Thank you for inventing Honda. But the new 600 makes me feel angry. It dosent look like you put much effort into the design. My friends at the .net are also feeling angry and a little horny. What makes us feel like this is the idea of being rediculed by the yamaha peeps. Please fix this meow!! You have 24 hrs Mr. Honda. BTW how's the wife and kids? Are karate movies still in over on your side of the world??

Love, 600rr.net :)

Looks like their budgets got shifted into 500s and 250s mostly due to the fact that China and India are the big time buyers of those smaller bikes. With the population of those two countries together ten times larger than United States, they are following the money trail and larger motorcycles are no longer the priority.

On the side note. Wheels are nice, but the rest reminds me of 05-06 models. I think my 09 is defiantly hotter looking. I am also happy to see no changes to the way rear pegs are being attached as I am working on a mod for 09-12 models that supposed to replace that. I am glad to see no changes there.

for the most part i like it. a bit disappointed the motor hasn't changed much. to me, the sexiest rr has been the '07 white/silver. i have the '07 blue/silver and i think that's a damn sexy bike as well.

i would love to get a new bike but with the few changes since 2007, there really isn't a justification to let my '07 go.

for most of us, performance isn't a factor since we most likely do not have the skillset to ride a bike to its full potential. so, other than aesthetics, we don't have much to gripe and moan about.

my one issue is, the only solid color paint scheme is red ... i hate red.

This reminds me of the incident when Apple released iPhone 4S instead of iPhone 5 that everyone had anticipated. Now that the iPhone 5 is out, the 4S looks better in certain ways. When given a choice of 4 vs 4S with very little difference, people still buy the 4S. Give this bike a chance to sink in. I'm sure people will rather have the latest and greatest instead of a 5 years old bike. I'm just waiting for a revised version of this bike in couple years and then decide. :D

You like it or not that's a different story. I'm not even sure if I like it yet but I applaud them for making it unique. It looks NOTHING like any other bike now.

If anything it looked more like an R6 in the previous year cause of the seperated headlights with a sharper nose.

This goes to show that whatever they do with styling doesn't matter for so many people since they can't even see the design or perceive it right
I think the bigger question is, are you literate?

This is what we have been waiting 5 long years for?! I agree with the previous posts regarding the bodywork, looks like 05-06 body on a 07-12 frame. Headlights are unimaginative to say the least and the only, "upgrades" appear to be the 1K's wheels and forks. It will be nice to not have to spend $200 for a tail light though for anyone buying this model. IMO: Too Little, Too Late Honda!

I just also realized this is the first 600RR without a position light. Not that big of a deal though.

I know this will probably get me flamed or banned from 600rr.net But I did so doing this at my own risk... (Like saying things such as sauce or fap, or talking bad about Gixxers)



I believe we can all agree on one thing, Honda has seriously fallen short of what we had expected. I think the CBR500 and CB500X are gonna be stellar bikes though. But I have to remind myself, this market for 600's is a much smaller, but it does no good to hasten the demise by putting chopped up bikes such as the 2013 cbr600rr on the market.

We were expecting something big, I was hoping for a revolutionary power plant, such as a 675 triple or a v-4, but instead got the same bike with 05-06 side fairings, a nose that someone took a sawzall too, and a set of big piston forks they had laying out in the back of the shed...

I think that Honda should do the honorable thing and pull out of the 600 market if they so desire to disgust us with this "thing". What is next, Gangland Logos courtesy of everybody's favorite Ghetto Cruiser on two wheels, the Suzuki "Gixxer"?

I did my best to work this thing over to make it look somewhat appealing, but I am at a loss of words... :(

I know this will probably get me flamed or banned from 600rr.net But I did so doing this at my own risk... (Like saying things such as sauce or fap, or talking bad about Gixxers)



Honda, Suzuki, and Kawasaki, better be worried about what they are gonna do when Yamaha releases the new 2014 R-675 triple and possibly 1100 R1 Triple. They will lose their minds as no set of cam alters "to improve mid range torque" will be able to thwart that three cylinder from explosively coming out of the corner like a bat out of hell and howling its way to the finish line.
