And they wonder why 600's dont sell anymore. I mean really Honda, think about what you just did. You went back in styling, you gave us a different wheel, which is probably heavier? and a BPF fork, well I say BFD I will for sure keep my better looking 2008. I will tell you what they will do too. You guys ready here it comes for their 2 year update they will enclose the fairing and say its better in the wind tunnel for transitioning from high speed corners. Wow you also gave us a LED tail light wow big seller. That all red one looks like a VFR from the 90's. I am so glad I bought the Kawasaki 636 this year. Big let down....

I was just thinking that, where are they hiding the C-ABS? Maybe there is a reason for the redesigned subframe and they are hiding the motor underneath the seat?

def looks like the r6


overall not impressed

Granted the side view has a resemblance to the old R6. We will just have wait and see what rest of this puppy is about when the testers get hold of it and start rolling out the reviews.

Yep not impressed at all....

The front looks far to tame, for me the newer R6 has the best looking front, (looks like an evil insect) If they had added a slipper clutch they would have said.

Its not a bad looking bike and there are some positives for me, i like the fact that they have kept the tail pipe where it is, i like seeing a little engine and the vents on the rear are great but i really was expecting something that was going to blow me away and it hasn't...

Are you kidding, of course not! If it isn't part of the innovations list on the website then it certainly doesn't exist for now.


Now I appreciate the BPF, LED tail light and that's about it.

Only colour I would buy is the Repsol, the others suck hardcore.

The rims (which maybe I should reserve judgment on until I see them in person) for now, suck. Much prefer the trispokes.

The nose is unique but not sporty enough, the 636 looks better IMO.

Definite no from me.

Lets see how the performance fares.

I wanted the blade and I still want that 2012 blade
short answer...No

but seriously take one look at honda's motogp bike that just won the 61st constructors championship and then look at this new cbr. Tons of similarities.

If I was looking at 2013 model 600cc bikes this is the one I would get. I cant wait for everyone to change face once this thing gets reviews/ people start seeing it in person.

I took the liberty to do a revision of the 2013 600RR. Just a quick pencil job.

I agree seeing it in person could change everything, i will now reserve judgement until the bike show in a week...

Are you guys blind? That front looks NOTHING like an r6. Not even close.
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

Well THIS is an interesting development...

Word on the street is that the Honda press team accidentally released a crappy drawing from the son of the lead 600rr engineer.

Here is the REAL 2013 CBR600rr:


I better get love for this, paint is a horrible program to use when

pretty sure the old r6 is what we were getting at hell thats exactly what sin said.

as for the bike its self its still a honda and im sure it will still perform well. i think most are just disappointed at all the hype of it being all new for 2013 and being relatively unchanged as far as the mech side of the bike goes.

well kinda what i thought i guess, just an update
"Honda’s CBR600RR has long been heralded as the best all-around 600-class sportbike the world has ever seen. A winner both on and off the track, it offers a perfect balance of high-revving power, precise handling, light weight, and a compact overall size.

And for 2013 the best just got a whole lot better. We’ve given the CBR600RR some major updates, including new 12-spoke wheels, revised ECU settings, and a fine-tuned ram-air system to increase torque. Best of all, the CBR600RR gets a new “Big Piston” fork and retuned rear shock. And it’s all wrapped up in some sharp new bodywork. There’s even a version with Honda’s revolutionary Electronic Combined Anti-Lock Braking System (C-ABS), the first ever on a production Supersport motorcycle."

not overly impressed to be honest. Glad the can stays put, we'll have to wait and see how it fairs in the market? for me buying a new six, id be serioulsy looking at the new Kawi 636

I can't believe they kept the 1990's era turn signals. Seems like that would have been an easy change.

I'm going to give that bodywork some time to grow on me before I make a statement.

So very very happy that they are keeping the undertail exhaust.

Love the integrated tail light, upgraded suspension and wheels.


If only Honda had thrown in a 675 triple... Since that's where everything is headed these days... I hope Honda does like Porsche and upgrades motors on their existing platforms halfway through model years....


That said, I am glad Mr. Strife lived up to his name.

Same turn signals, same swingarm, same engine, same headlights-only they're horizontal? Same tail from 03-06, taillight is back to where it originally was, after "briefly" being put in a stupid place. Same red/blue from the 90's.
Half of this "new" bike is 10 years old.

Of course, the 600rr has always been the standard. But that standard is getting old now.

Looks like one of the old 2005 600/Fireblades. Too many bodywork bolts on show and just looks really chunky old fashioned IMO. Not a fan.
