Honda Launches 2024 Models


The CBR600RR is back:

Honda says the bike is “destined for road and track action,” and certainly the latter can be accounted for with such a detailed electronics suite.

“Every aspect of intake, combustion and exhaust has been through development since the CBR600RR was last on sale in Europe,” the four-cylinder DOHC’s 119bhp (89kW) is rather comparable to the 118bhp of seven years ago. That said, the bike has a 44mm throttle body to try to smooth the delivery out, and a reworked butterfly valve port to reduce intake pressure drop.”

The maps and settings are managed via a full-colour TFT display which utilises the ‘Street’, ‘Circuit’ and ‘Mechanic’ modes, while the Honda Ignition Security System (HISS) is also used, meaning there is now a way to start the bike without the key. Elsewhere, the lighting is LED, and the bodywork design was guided by lessons learned from the Honda CBR1000RR-R Fireblade

Will it come to SA? 

Honda unveiled their upgraded CBR1000RR-R Fireblade.

The new bike features several upgrades including to the gearbox, aerodynamics, power delivery and “a rebalanced chassis” as the Japanese manufacturer goes in search of more performance. It is pretty flippen gorgeous!

Powered by a detuned version of the 2017 Fireblade  motor has also been unveiled. The Hornet’s power will be “more than 147.5bhp.” says Honda.

The 2017 Blade produced a peak power of 189bhp,

Suspension is fully adjustable 41mm Showa SFF-BP upside down forks and a Showa rear shock. Brakes are radial four piston front calipers that grab 310mm floating discs. It’s all new, so no news as to whether it will come to SA. Unlikely though.
