The 2023 Honda CBR600RR: Middleweight Weapon

How do you know which bikes from the big red Japanese builder are the fastest? Simple, just look for the most number of R’s or RR’s, or in this case 600RR’s.

Easy to spot with the Honda Grand Prix Red colorway, it is hard to see any changes to this incredible supersport for the 2023 lineup, as compared to the 2022 model.

From the 15,000 rpm redline to the under-seat exhaust, everything about the CBR600RR has been carefully engineered for maximum performance. The Honda Electronic Steering Damper is incredibly sophisticated, as is the fully adjustable, Moto GP inspired Showa suspension.

Once again Honda denies the Canadian market access to the CBR600RR, and to also keep buyers baffled, they continue to have ABS braking as an option rather than a standard feature.

The 2023 Honda CBR600RR starts at $ 13,099 USD / $ N/A CAD.

On this page: we’ve curated specs, features, news, photos/videos, etc. so you can read up on the new 2023 Honda CBR600RR in one place.

2023 Honda CBR600RR Features

BRAKING

RADIAL MOUNTED FRONT-BRAKE CALIPERS
The CBR600RR uses radial-mounted monoblock front-brake calipers. This construction makes the caliper stiffer, and that means you get better brake feel for more linear, powerful stopping. Each caliper also uses four chromium-plated aluminum pistons for smooth, friction-free operation.

ENGINEERING

CENTRALLY LOCATED FUEL TANK
The CBR600RR’s 4.8-gallon fuel tank is positioned in the center of the chassis and low in the frame. This allows for a more compact design, but even more important helps centralize the bike’s mass. Increased mass centralization means the CBR is more responsive to rider input, especially when leaning the bike into a turn or standing it up at the exit.

LINE-BEAM HEADLIGHTS
Line-beam headlights feature a two-piece reflector design that utilizes two H7 bulbs for optimum light distribution and unique compact design. The result: the headlight helps you see better and also helps make you visible to traffic.

HANDLING

Honda ELECTRONIC STEERING DAMPER
Most steering dampers only sense handlebar-deflection speed. The Honda Electronic Steering Damper (HESD) is way more sophisticated. It also detects vehicle speed, and adjusts damping proportionally. That helps maintain low-speed maneuverability while providing excellent, predictable high-speed handling.

Honda MULTI-ACTION SYSTEM INVERTED FORK
The HMAS cartridge fork features an exclusive internal piston construction. The innovative design employs smaller-diameter pistons to keep oil velocity high for improved damping characteristics and an expanded range of adjustability. The result: you get more precise suspension performance, especially over smaller surface irregularities.

UNIT PRO-LINK® SUSPENSION
By eliminating the frame-mounted top shock mount, Unit Pro-Link® isolates the chassis from bumps, resulting in more precise handling and better traction. Developed on our championship-winning MotoGP bikes, it’s a perfect example of the CBR’s superior engineering.

12-SPOKE WHEELS
With their consistent rigidity and balance, these sharp-looking 12-spoke cast aluminum wheels work with the fork and enhance suspension feedback to deliver real handling improvements.

PERFORMANCE

DUAL-STAGE FUEL INJECTION
Two sets of injectors per cylinder ensure both low- and high-rpm performance. You get near-instantaneous high-rpm response, along with great low-rpm metering and clean running.

DUAL-STAGE RAM AIR
A nose-mounted, two-stage ram air system provides a high volume of cool air to the air box for linear power delivery and superb engine performance.
