you’ve won more Grand Prix races than anyone
else, you learn a thing or two about building
sportbikes. And nowhere is that better illustrated
than in Honda’s renowned CBR ®s. Developed
using world-championship technology, they bring
you performance and handling on the track, yet
are refined for the street. And that’s not just our
opinion—our CBRs have the championships and
the magazine accolades to back it up. This year
we’re proud to offer two of our best CBRs ever, a
pair of machines that stand out in every way. Technology, innovation, handling, quality, and refinement have all been hallmarks of CBR performance
since our very first Hurricanes back in 1987.

lighter than last year’s machine. Then check out the new second-generation Honda Electronic
RAM AIR
Steering Damper™ (HESD™ ) and the new slipper/assist clutch. The all-new engine is lighter and more
compact than ever, with bigger cylinder bores and a shorter stroke so it makes even more power.
The faster you
go, the more air it rams in,
and the more power you get.
It’s a win-win-win situation!
Like our CBR600RR, the 1000RR uses a Fine Die Cast aluminum frame and a new, longer swingarm.
Just like our first Hurricanes, it redefines the class.
