Available January 2005

An 04 just for comparison















The 2005 CBR600RR incorporates a host of next-generation upgrades that elevate this full-on sport mount to all-new heights.

Features & Benefits
New for 2005


Radial-mounted front brake calipers.
41mm inverted front fork.
New intake port shape and redesigned exhaust for lighter weight and increased mid-range power.
New piston surface treatment for reduced friction.
Fuel injection flow increased to match intake and exhaust system changes.
Frame and sub-frame redesigned for lighter weight while maintaining superior handling characteristics.
New bodywork more closely resembles RC211V and reduces weight.
Redesigned top triple-clamp allows for lighter weight.
New swingarm assembly redesigned for lighter weight.
New two-piece shock design for improved performance and lighter weight.
Available in Red/Black, Black/Tribal, Metallic Silver/Black and Black.

Unique features

Unit Pro-Link(r) rear suspension and swingarm design inspired by RC211V.
Dual Stage Fuel Injection (DSFI) system features two injectors per cylinder.
High-revving engine redlines at 15,000 rpm.
RC211V-style center-up exhaust system.
Centrally located fuel tank increases mass centralization and allows more compact frame design.
Line Beam Headlight features three-piece reflector design.

Engine/Drivetrain

Liquid-cooled DOHC 16-valve 599cc four-stroke inline four-cylinder engine features oversquare bore and stroke of 67mm x 42.5mm.
High-revving engine has 15,000-rpm redline (CBR(r)600F4i redlines at 14,200), wider powerband and more over-rev than CBR600F4i.
Compact engine length (236mm) positions the rider forward for more precise handling.
Iridium-tip spark plugs improve fuel combustion and performance.
Dual Stage Fuel Injection system features two injectors per cylinder--one upper and one lower--controlled by an ECU that senses rpm and throttle opening. Lower injector enhances rideability while upper injector improves top-end horsepower. At lower rpm only the lower injector is working. Above 5500 rpm both injectors are activated. The system uses 40mm throttle bodies.
Denso injectors with 12 holes per injector deliver a finely atomized fuel mixture for optimum combustion efficiency and power.
Auto enriching system is integrated into PGM-FI module, eliminating the need for a manual choke.
Two-stage ram-air system provides a high volume of cool air to the airbox for linear power delivery and incredible engine performance.
Cylinder head features angled valve inset to improve airflow.
Cylinder head features two springs per intake valve and two springs per exhaust valve for optimum high-rpm valve operation and durability.
Direct shim-under-bucket valve actuation ensures high-rpm performance and durability and offers 16,000-mile maintenance intervals.
Light pistons, piston pins and nutless connecting rods contribute to higher-revving engine.
Pistons receive new moly surface treatment for reduced friction.
Double-pivot cam-chain tensioner for cam chain durability.
Right-side starter gears for increased lean angle.
Lightweight aluminum oil cooler.
Smooth-shifting close-ratio six-speed transmission is closely matched to the engine's powerband.

Chassis/Suspension

Die cast aluminum frame utilizes new manufacturing methods to provide optimum rigidity while reducing weight. Frame is tuned for precise handling characteristics.
New 41mm inverted Honda Multi-Action System(tm) (HMAS(tm)) cartridge front fork features spring preload, rebound and compression damping adjustability for precise action.
Unit Pro-Link rear suspension system is patterned after RC211V GP racer. In this system, the upper shock mount is contained within the swingarm rather than the frame. With no top frame-mount for the shock, this unique system reduces negative suspension energy from being transmitted into the frame, allowing optimum frame rigidity and improved rideability out of corners.
Braking system features twin four-piston radial mounted front calipers, dual 310mm front discs and a single 220mm rear disc for optimum stopping power.
Redesigned center-up exhaust system features four-into-two-into-one design for increased performance, aerodynamics, and lighter weight.
Handlebars located below top triple-clamp for precise handling.

Additional Features
Industry-leading ergonomic design features maximum rider comfort for minimum fatigue in all riding conditions.
Centrally mounted 4.8-gallon fuel tank is positioned low in the frame, increasing mass centralization and allowing a more compact design. This design positions the rider 70mm forward for optimum handling.
Plastic tank shell cover protects tank and airbox.
Line Beam Headlight features three-piece reflector design (first in the world) utilizing two H7 bulbs for optimum light distribution, and unique compact design.
Instrumentation is very compact and features tachometer, speedometer and fuel gauge.
Attractive hollow-spoke aluminum alloy wheels feature race spec 3.5 x 17-inch front and 5.5 x 17-inch rear dimensions.
One-piece fan assembly for maximum cooling efficiency.
Maintenance-free battery.
Optional seat cowl.
Compact rear cowl storage compartment for U-type locking devices (lock not included) under the passenger seat.
Pivoting aerodynamic mirrors.
Integrated ignition switch/fork lock for added security.
Convenient push-to-cancel turn signal switch.
Transferable one-year, unlimited mileage limited warranty; extended coverage available with a Honda Protection Plan.
Ownership includes one-year complimentary membership in the Honda Rider's Club of America(tm) (HRCA(r)). Benefits include: discounts, travel benefits, roadside assistance, one year complimentary subscription to Honda Red Rider(tm) magazine, access to HRCA Clubhouse Web site (www.hrca.honda.com), access online to Honda Common Service Manual.

In the MCN picture all they did was photoshop the 1000rr forks and wheel, add the "vents" on the rear cowl, change the color of the bottom to look like the 1000RR, and make the headlights squintier!! Seriously we'll just have to wait until mid-Sept when the dealershow goes on. Unless there's a Euro show before than.

Not so much desperate but just frustrated on how many people continue to post on this. You know when people dont even bother to do a simple search etc. If people want to know what the latest is they can now come to this one location for the info and anything that is new and worth something it can be posted here. We need to try and keep this clean and not add allot of crud.
