Honda International Bikes: CBR600RR

Honda CBR600RR

Type: Middleweight Sports Bike

Price: Starting from $9,799 that is around 4.5 Lacs to 5 Lacs in Indian Rupees

It is a dream bike for any bike lovers. I personally am dying to have this beauty. Yes it is expensive for Indian bikers considering if you want to buy it and import in India you have to pay almost 100% import duty on it. That means the cost of the bike will be doubled. But that does not mean you can’t buy it, you can see some Honda CBR on Mumbai’s Roads. It might be expensive but if you are true Bike crazy then this bike truly worth the price tag. And as they say if you have the money flaunt it. There is no other way of doing it better than owning this beauty with power.

Honda 600-class sport bikes have the perfect balance of size, performance, horsepower and handling. The bike is a record holder too, it is a back-to-back Formula Xtreme champion, some international magazines also the named as best middleweight supersport motorcycle.

It has features like a light, strong aluminum frame, Dual-Stage Fuel Injection, Pro-Link rear suspension, HESD electronic steering damper, and comes in various trendy colors.

Some Features of the Bike according to Honda’s official website are as follows,

CBR600RR is proof of how good a sportbike can be.

The CBR600RR has five AMA FX titles in a row and six straight World Supersport championships in addition to Best Middleweight Supersport crowns from the industry experts.

It's also the lightest middleweight out there by a pretty fair margin. Weight, performance, horsepower, handling—this MotoGP-bred machine is packed with the features that set Hondas apart.

And now for 2009, the CBR600RR is set to gap the competition even further with the introduction of Combined Anti-Lock Braking, the first ABS system for the Supersport class. Top that with five stunning new color schemes, and watch the competition fold.
