2013 Moto Guzzi V7 Classic Review

This is the closest to the original V7 concept, not only because it shares its name with the first V7 signed by Lino Tonti, but because if faithfully cites the same riding philosophy, that of a touring bike with sophisticated finishings and exclusive technical solutions. Just like its ancestor, it is wrapped in a two-tone colour concept and equipped with precious spoked wheels with aluminium rims which, as in the case of the V7 Stone, contribute to improving the riding dynamic thanks to the lower weight compared to the V7 Classic.

2013 Moto Guzzi V7 Classic motorcycle photos 1In 1967 the first big Italian bike appeared on the motorcycle market: the Moto Guzzi V7. The bike was an immediate success and helped make Moto Guzzi’s name throughout the world, as a producer of prestigious, comfortable, elegant and reliable motorcycles. For many owners it was the expression of an important part of their lives, youthful memories of carefree times, trips with friends. Forty-five years later, this positive heritage is the inspiration behind the V7 Classic.

The Bike

The brainchild of Giulio Cesare Carcano, the V7 made its debut with a 2-clylinder 90° V-twin mounted across the frame and a cylinder capacity of 703cc, a record for the time in 1967.

Today, the Moto Guzzi heritage in combination with the current full-blown relaunch of the brand, is the inspiration behind the new V7 Classic. A bike with a strong character, which derives from the interpretation of a concept of essential beauty, hailing to the style of the original V7, but with all the modern technology that the legendary ancestor could never have.

2013 Moto Guzzi V7 Classic motorcycle photos 4Modern technical equipment, chassis and a Euro3 750cc engine, the line of the fuel tank hails to the old V7 Classic, running narrow and streamlined along the tubes of the frame to meet the seat, perfectly flat and mounted solid with the rear mudguard. The storage compartments on the sides blend into the style of the famous ancestor, with the same side view.

The charm of the V7 Classic is also expressed by the bright chrome work, such as on the exhaust pipes, the shock absorbers, the rear light, the fuel cap, the front light, the comfortable handlebars and the frame of the speedometer and rev counter.

Moto Guzzi V7 Passion

AN EVOLUTION THAT RESPECTS TRADITION.

Created in 2008, the V7 Classic won over enthusiasts with its design inspired by the famous forerunners, V7 Special and Sport from the seventies, but combined with the technology and usability of a modern Moto Guzzi. Subsequently, in 2009, the V7 Café Classic contributed to the success of the V7 Classic, followed the next year by the exclusive V7 Racer, first appearing as a show bike at EICMA 2009 and then going into mass production due to unanimous demand from the markets, exceeding 1000 units sold by a wide margin.

2013 Moto Guzzi V7 Classic motorcycle photos 3These three models completed the range which was able to rekindle youthful memories for more expert bikers, memories of trips and friendships experienced in the sixties and seventies, when the motorcycle represented a symbol of freedom and non-conformism. These values, sustained by a brand that celebrated ninety years of history, made the V7 a bike which fully expressed the passion and skill of the rider.

The new Moto Guzzi V7 begins with an examination of its identity: elegant, Italian, two cylinder, affordable and with a unique history. In order to preserve the traits of this personality and project it into the future, the only path that could be taken was that of totally innovating it within a perimeter of tradition delimited by its technical specifications and its design style. This is why we can say that the V7 is a completely new bike, more powerful, faster, thriftier, more ecological, better refined and more comfortable than the previous version, and yet still with a cardan shaft driven 90° transversal V two cylinder engine and double frame. That is, the distinctive elements of a tradition which has its roots in an idea conceived in 1967: the Moto Guzzi V7 700cc.

THE NEW, SINGLE THROTTLE V7 ENGINE.

The original engine design dates back to 1977, the year of the Moto Guzzi V50's fortunate début. Since then the engine has been continuously updated, sustaining displacements of 350 up to 750 cc, going from carburettor to electronic injection, but staying faithful to the genial layout introduced in the original design by engineer Lino Tonti. Globally appreciated for its legendary reliability and operational regularity, after many years, the small block needed a bit more brilliance at high revs. And so, the search for greater performance opened the door to a new design, rich with innovative solutions that project this engine among the most advanced in its category with more than 70% new parts, equal to more than 200 new or redesigned mechanical organs.

2013 Moto Guzzi V7 Classic motorcycle photos 5This design freshness can already be seen in the layout of the thermal group which is a summary of the design philosophy for the entire bike: innovation which respects tradition. And so it is that the square fin, legacy of production from the 1980s, passed the baton to a rounded shape which is reminiscent of the first generation of two cylinders from Mandello. The valves cover is also a homage to the origins of the V7; made in aluminium, it faithfully covers the profile of the fins, showing off the Moto Guzzi signature in bas-relief. Another element that is immediately recognisable is the disappearance of the two intake manifolds and relative throttle bodies: in fact, the new small block is the first single throttle body V twin Moto Guzzi engine.

The manifolds were replaced by a single Y manifold made of rubber, completely ribbed and straight (diameter of 36 and 39 mm respectively from the injector groups and the throttle body) which links to a single Magneti Marelli MIU3G 38 mm diameter throttle body. This is a modern unit which allows two oxygen sensors to be managed, thereby obtaining a mixture to the cylinders in any operating conditions which is more uniform with consequent improvement in fuel economy and harmful emissions, besides contributing to the increase in performance, which was the goal of the entire design. For this purpose a new head was designed, working on the intake ducts, now larger in diameter and better linked to reduce losses and increase turbulence, as well as repositioning the spark plug hole more centrally, thanks to the use of a more modern plug with d=10mm threading and a prominent electrode.

The squish area and the compression ratio is also increased, thanks to the use of new, higher performance pistons which increased the ratio by one point, going from 9.2 to 10.2. In addition to the pouches obtained at the top of the piston, the bottom of these are completely redesigned to make the structure more sturdy without increasing the weight. The segments are also new, with more modern sizes, material and shapes, and they contribute to improving efficiency and oil consumption.

The new cylinder finning, larger and spread farther apart to lower the average operating temperature, contributes to the general efficiency of the power plant, as well as the new filter box, redesigned to satisfy the “breathing” needs of the twin cylinder from Mandello and moved under the saddle to leave the “V” of the engine visible and to ensure easier maintenance. With this new configuration the twin cylinder from mandello is now significantly stronger in driving torque and especially in maximum power, increased by 12%, with a greater tendency toward extension and an output curve that expresses it increased number of horses even at 2,800 RPM and simultaneously, thanks to the improved efficiency, a further reduction in fuel consumption and emissions of more than 10%, reaching a range of 23Km/l on mixed cycle.

The transmission has also been revamped, still five speeds, but with a new pre-selector which has made control more precise, smooth and quiet.The final drive is confirmed, entrusted to the famed cardan, unique in its category and a Moto Guzzi icon as well as the guarantee of reliability, safety, comfort, cleanliness and completely maintenance free.

SKILFUL ALCHEMY BETWEEN TRADITION AND MODERNISM.

The design of the new V7 tells of the historic lineage of the model through a mix of forms and volumes which cite the famous ancestors, from the V7 750 Special remembered in the accents and the side panels, to the V7 Sport, which influenced the tank, the main new feature introduced in the new V7.

A change in look, now more imposing in form and capacity, the new tank brings with it a superior material perception of metal with respect to polyethylene, the material which was used to make the previous unit. This is thanks to the most advanced moulding technologies which allow construction of a metallic tank which is the same size, but lighter and with greater capacity compared to the previous polyethylene unit, reaching a record value of 22 litres which, together with the reduced consumption, ensures a range of up to 500 km. This is further proof of the design philosophy that guided the entire V7 project where innovation of the processes restored the pleasure to the rider of gripping a real, resounding metal tank in true Moto Guzzi tradition.

The rest of the new V7 design confirms that alchemy of tradition and modernism introduced in 2008 with the first V7 Classic, where, through the generous chrome trim, enthusiasts will be able to appreciate the cigar shape of the silencers, the dials on the instrument panel, clearly inspired by the Veglia-Borletti from the 1970s, the flat and long saddle, with the proud "Moto Guzzi" inscription emblazoned on the rear part as well as the new valves covers.

The Moto Guzzi V7, iconic and prestigiously manufactured, is now available in three versions, two touring and one sport, respectively the V7 Stone, V7 Special and the V7 Racer. Just like in 1971 when the sport version completed a range made up of the dominating V7 and V7 Special.

THE CERTAINTY OF THE DOUBLE CRADLE, THE NEW, LIGHTENED WHEELS.

The double cradle frame, with bolted and removable lower elements, is a key element of the V7 project and it has not undergone any changes compared with the previous version. This is a unit of legendary solidity and sturdiness thanks in part to the headstock angle of 27°50', an angle which ensures stability and directional precision.

The fork, using 40 mm stanchions, adopts new calibration to reduce friction and is equipped with dust boots in the Racer version, with 130 mm travel. Rear shock absorbers with new calibration to the advantage of comfort for the V7 Stone and the V7 Special with adjustable spring preload and offering 118 mm of travel, while the Racer, as usual, stands out with a pair of refined Bitubo WMT gas shock absorbers equipped with an external tank. The brake system consists of a 320 mm floating front disc and a 260 mm rear disc.

The entire range is now equipped with one of two different types of new wheels: in lightweight alloy with five split spokes for the V7, spoked with new polished aluminium rim for Special and anodised black with red hubs to match the frame for the V7 Racer. A reduction in weight for all three compared to the previous version which means an advantage in terms of gyroscopic inertia which translates on the road into greater agility and superlative feel.

THE ORIGINS OF THE LEGENDARY V7.

The year was 1961 and the success of the mass produced car was radically reorganizing the motorcycle market. Moto Guzzi, empowered with enviable design capacity reacted to the unfavourable circumstances by exploring new markets, from delivery three-wheelers to agricultural machinery and special vehicles - even cars. For the latter, the genius designer Giulio Cesare Carcano designed a two cylinder 90° V air cooled engine destined for a sport version of the Fiat 500, capable of touching 140 km/h. People at Lingotto liked the new engine, but the annual quantity that Vittorio Valletta requested exceeded the production capacity of the Mandello del Lario plant, so the agreement never came to fruition.

Engineer Carcano, however, did not lose heart and he increased the size of the two cylinder engine to 754cc to use it on the "3X3", a popular, variable track three wheel drive vehicle destined for the Alpine troops. At the same time a ministerial tender was launched to provide motorcycles for the Highway Police; the winner would be whoever could travel 100,000 km with the lowest maintenance cost. It was the right occasion to place engineer Carcano's two cylinder on a bike, the Moto Guzzi V7. It was an innovative project that combined the reliability of automotive standards with a level of comfort and mechanical affordability unknown to the competition that arose the curiosity even of foreign police forces, Los Angeles being among the first. The commissioning of the new V7 began in 1964. The bike had a 703.3 cc engine which developed 40 HP and it weighed 230 kg. In 1966 mass production began, destined for the police department and foreign markets, while the next year the V7 was distributed in Italy at the competitive price of 725,000 lire, much more convenient than the German and English competition.

EVOLUTION ACCORDING TO LINO TONTI.

Giulio Cesare Carcano's creation was perfected by an expert designer who joined Moto Guzzi in 1967: Lino Toni. Hailing from Forlì, with a great deal of experience in competitions with Mondial, Bianchi and Gilera, the engineer was called on by the general manager Romolo Stefani to expand the range of the maxi-bike from Mandello del Lario. The V7 appeared at the right time, bikes were coming domineeringly back into fashion almost as a reaction to the conformism of the car and the market is particularly open to innovations. The first thing Tonti did was to increase the engine size to 757 and the power to 45 HP to launch the V7 Special in 1969, faster, more refined and elegant compared to the V7. Then he created, initially for the American market, the V7 Ambassador and the California, the latter destined to be one of the great Moto Guzzi success stories. The next chapter coincides with Lino Tonti's masterpiece: the V7 Sport. The designer from Forlì had clear ideas and he set the three parameters of the sport bike from Mandello: 200 km/h, 200 kg, 5 gears. To reach the objective he made some changes to the engine, taking the displacement to 748.3 cc and the power to more than 52 HP, redesigning the crankshaft and camshafts, in addition to placing the alternator in the front in order to keep the vertical bulk down.

The engine was lodged in a tight, double cradle frame, painted red for the first 200 units made in CrMo and assembled directly in the experience department on via E.V. Parodi, No. 57. The bike made its début in 1971 and in June of the same year it participated in the "500 kilometres of Monza" race taking third place with Raimondo Riva. And this was the beginning of a series of flattering results obtained in endurance races such as the 24 Hour Le Mans and Liège races which would contribute, together with very popular riders such as Vittorio Brambilla, to making it the most famous Italian sport bike of the 1970s.

2013 Moto Guzzi V7 Classic - Features and Benefits

A TRIBUTE TO A LEGEND

In 1967, the motorcycle market reeled in shock at the appearance of the first Italian maxi motorcycle: Created by the legendary Giulio Cesare Carcano, the Moto Guzzi V7 marked the debut of the transverse V90 twin-cylinder 703 cc engine that set a record at that time. The V7 was enthusiastically acclaimed by the press and public. This success helped the worldwide promotion of Moto Guzzi’s image as manufacturers of an exclusive, elegant, comfortable and above all, highly reliable motorcycle. For many people, owning a V7 was one of the most important things in their lives. It left them with unforgettable memories that reminded them of their younger days, of friends and of journeys made together and made that time perhaps one of the highest points in Moto Guzzi’s history. After a further forty years of success and as part of Moto Guzzi’s worldwide relaunch project, the flame of creativity shines brightly once more in the new V7 Classic. The V7 has character to spare and is a superb interpretation of the fundamental beauty of the original V7 but this time incorporating all the latest technology that was unavailable to its predecessor.

The new machine is fully up-to-date with its equipment levels, frame engineering and 750cc Euro 3 engine. The V7 Classic brings earlier days to mind with the line of the tank that nestles comfortably on the tubular frame and runs back to meet the saddle. This in turn is perfectly flat and blends in gracefully with the rear mudguard. The side panels house the same stowage compartments that so stylishly set off the side view of the original machine.

Times gone by can also be seen in the gleaming chrome finish on the exhaust system, the shock absorbers, rear light cluster, front headlight and the comfortable handlebars that house the chromed rev counter and speedometer. Just as on its predecessor, the wheels too are spoked and shod with high profile sports tires while the instrument panel with its retro-style graphics houses two modern displays that provide information on operating and diagnostic parameters. Although the V7 Classic is somewhat smaller than other Moto Guzzis, it is ideally suited for carrying pillion passengers with a comfortable saddle, convenient handholds and well positioned footpegs. The V7 Classic is easy to ride, instinctive and creates a feeling of confidence right from the first time you climb aboard. The manageable size and excellent riding position are perfect for both town use and longer mixed journeys. The
sheer pleasure of riding the machine will be enhanced even further by owners having to answer countless questions from curious onlookers about the white machine they are riding as it looks just like its famed predecessor. The 2012 V7 Classic is available in Guzzi Black and Ibis Red and is currently in stock at your local Moto Guzzi dealer in the United States and Canada. The V7 Classic has an MSRP of $8,990 (USD) in the United States and $9,490 (CAD) in Canada.

New dual-purpose, multi-role motorcycle: sharp on the street, fun on the dirt

2013 Honda CRF250L Motorcycle Photos 2The essence of what makes a true dual-purpose motorcycle has long been in Honda's DNA. In the late 1970s the XL250S was launched, a bike providing genuine on-road usability with excellent off-road performance. The entire XL range that followed became legendary, and proved that bolting an economical and easy-to-use single-cylinder four-stroke engine into a competent chassis, created a bike that was useful, versatile and, as riders the world over found, fun.

Exhaustive discussions within Honda R&D took place about the creation of a brand new dual-purpose machine. The company's long history - in off-road competition and dual-purpose machinery - was a useful touchstone when development of the bike first began, and inspired the team that worked on it from the outset.

Looking to the needs of customers came first. While some riders insist upon competition-level off-road performance, many others value ease of use, practicality and convenience. For weekday, urban use they wanted a tough, practical bike with cutting-edge off-road style. But, come the weekend, it needed to provide a ticket to ride, wherever they wanted to go, on or off-road.

Honda's new dual-purpose platform was always viewed by its development engineers with global perspective, as a bike for the whole world. It not only needed a powerful and frugal engine, its chassis also had to have a broad and capable range. The bike was to be affordable, offering high quality and outstanding value for money, with low overall running costs a priority.

Perhaps most important, and a driving force for the engineers working exhaustively to deliver such a multi-faceted motorcycle, was to produce something that could connect many people to Honda, and help them realise their dreams in a way that only a motorcycle can.

The CRF250L is that motorcycle.

Model Overview

The CRF250L is a dual-purpose motorcycle. Its dimensions, ergonomics, low weight, long-travel 43mm Showa USD forks and Pro-link rear suspension make it equally at home on city streets or country trails. The single-cylinder engine provides useful power and torque across a wide rev range, with excellent fuel economy. The crisp styling takes cues from the legendary CRF competition range, and, as expected from Honda, both build quality and engineering standard is high.

The key phrase used throughout CRF250L development was: "…to make 'On' (daily life) more convenient and 'Off' (weekends) more enjoyable!"

2013 Honda CRF250L Key Features

Engine
The CRF250L’s lightweight and compact liquid-cooled single-cylinder 249cc DOHC engine produces smooth and consistent torque at low rpm, aiding rear wheel traction and rider feel. Equally, the short stroke (76x55mm) engine’s high rpm performance is excellent; throughout its rev range and provides well-balanced and very usable power delivery.

To create a tractable engine across such a broad rev range, much research and development effort went into the intake and exhaust system. The ideal internal dimensions were found for the throttle body and exhaust pipe, both in terms of diameter and length. A new design of viscous air filter and large 5.7L air box has been employed to maximize airflow.

The CRF250L engine team came up with a new and extremely compact roller/rocker arm design for the low-friction valve train. This in turn allowed the use of a smaller cylinder head. An iridium spark plug, along with precise metering of fuel from the PGM-FI injection system, further enhances combustion efficiency and improves environmental credentials.

Reducing internal frictional losses, the CRF250L engine uses an offset cylinder while the piston itself incorporates a special surface material, plus a molybdenum coating. The oil pump features an internal relief structure that prevents aeration of relieved oil.

A first for Honda in a single-cylinder off-road engine is the crank journal. It employs a half-split, press-fit metal bearing while the crank bearing uses a cast-iron bush. The net result of this new design reduces weight and makes for a smoother engine; it strengthens the rigidity of the case housing and minimizes the internal diameter change due to thermal expansion. A primary balance shaft further reduces vibration. The new six-speed gearbox and clutch were designed in conjunction and strengthened to cope with the extra stress riding off-road can produce.

The cooling system uses a 10.7 kW heat-release radiator, sited on the left of the bike, protected with a polypropylene grill baffled to improve airflow. A thin guide-ring cooling fan is used to maintain even temperatures at low speeds, either in congested traffic or tricky off-road situations.

To deal with Euro III emissions regulations an O2 Lambda sensor works in conjunction with a secondary air injection system. The catalyzer is sited inside the tapered exhaust muffler.

Chassis
With the versatility demanded of the CRF250L from the outset, a brand new frame evolved to house the new engine. Constructed from steel, the twin oval-section main spars and semi-double cradle provide the strength needed for off-road riding. The slim, round-section steel bolt-on sub-frame supports two adults plus a 5kg load. Guards are situated above the rider’s foot pegs to protect the frame from boot scuffs.

A wheelbase of 1,445mm is matched to a 27.6°’ rake with 113mm trail, giving excellent stability and agility.

The 43mm Showa inverted fork is incredibly rigid, with performance perfectly honed throughout its 250mm stroke for use over a wide range of terrain and speeds. Pro-Link rear suspension features a 240mm axle stroke; the Showa shock absorber is a single tube design with 40mm diameter cylinder. The tapered aluminium swingarm incorporates a monoblock casting; a method that allows for production of intricate shapes. It provides the correct rigidity balance while ensuring strength, and reducing un-sprung mass. Extruded aluminium is used for the chain adjustment collar.

The front brake uses a single 256mm disc gripped by a two-piston caliper, the rear, a 220mm disc with single-piston caliper. Braking has been tuned to offer excellent feel with a high level of controllability. The lightweight discs feature a wave design – taken directly from the CRF250R/CRF450R – with exceptional self-cleaning abilities in adverse conditions.

Lightweight aluminium rims further reduce un-sprung mass. The directly attached spoke pattern layout is taken from the CRF250R/CRF450R and benefits from extreme rigidity. Block pattern enduro-style tyres (front: 3.00-21 51P, rear: 120/80-18 62P) provide traction in a wide range of riding situations. The 21 inch front wheel and 18 inch rear increase stability on rough terrain and allow the fitment of more off-road specific tyres if required.

Equipment/Styling
The CRF250L’s digital instrument cluster contains a fuel meter, with built-in clock and twin trip functions. The headlight visor provides visual CRF-inspired styling, protects the instruments and houses an H4 60W/55 bulb.

Overall styling of the CRF250L owes much to the elements of the competition CRF-R range, incorporating principles of mass centralization and triangular proportion. Ergonomic considerations were also a key factor, as the bike is required to perform, handle well, and be comfortable in a wide variety of conditions. The braced handlebar provides an upright and relaxed riding position, with plenty of leverage for bike control, and a 45° turning angle either side give a tight turning circle which is useful for dealing with urban traffic or tight trails.

The slim fuel tank holds 7.7L, and combined with the comfortable, flat seat offers maximum control and choice of riding position. A compact, lockable toolbox is sited at the base of the rear fender.

2013 Honda CBR1000RR C-ABS Review

The Essential Superbike...

It’s hard to improve on a machine that’s already as good as Honda’s incredible CBR1000RR C-ABS. You can build a faster bike or one with more power, but probably nothing that combines power, handling, riding quality, and overall build quality to the degree this versatile open-class sportbike does.

And that’s a huge issue. Riders everywhere are rediscovering the fact that they want a motorcycle that sets high standards, but sets them in a balanced way. CBR riders have known that for decades. And they know another secret: a better balanced bike can actually be faster than one with just a lot of power.

This year we’re again offering the CBR1000RR C-ABS in two versions, one with Combined Anti-Lock Braking System (C-ABS), the first ever on a production Superbike.

Finding the sweet spot in Superbike design means attaining that perfect balance between power and handling-a balance point that allows the bike to function as an integrated, complete package for superior feel and performance. And that's exactly what the Honda CBR1000RR C-ABS brings to the table. Credit the race-proven 999cc engine that smoothly pumps out huge midrange power and torque for class-leading real-world muscle. And the lightweight aluminum frame is equipped with a modern-design Big Piston Fork and Honda's Unit Pro-Link® rear suspension system that features a patented Balance-Free Rear Shock-all to sharpen the CBR1000RR C-ABS's renowned ultra-responsive middleweight-style handling. The aggressive bodywork isn't there just for good looks; it's also been designed and tested to provide the correct aerodynamic flow that aids high-speed handling. In short, the CBR1000RR C-ABS simply defines the pure essence of all that a liter-class sportbike should be.

2013 Honda CBR1000RR C-ABS Key Features

New for 2013

- C-ABS model available in Black.
- 999cc liquid-cooled inline four-cylinder

2013 Honda CBR1000RR C-ABS Features and Benefits

Honda Electronic Steering Damper

LCD Instruments
The CBR1000RR C-ABS’s full-screen LCD instrumentation includes a lap timer, trip and fuel-consumption computer, five-level customizable shift indicator, gear-position indicator and peak-rpm memory function.

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

BPF Front Suspension
The CBR1000RR C-ABS’s front suspension uses a Big Piston Fork (BPF). The 43mm Showa fork is smoother and more responsive, and gives you excellent front-end feedback.

Layered Fairing
There’s no mistaking the 2013 CBR1000RR C-ABS, thanks to its Layered Fairing bodywork. Lean, mean, more aggressive from front to back, it’s a real attention getter, even when it’s standing still.

Electronic Combined Anti-Lock Braking (C-ABS)
Electronically controlled Combined ABS distributes brake force over both wheels, helping to maintain braking confidence in less than ideal conditions. The system electronically measures rider input on the brake lever and pedal and applies only the front or rear brake in some cases, or combines both brakes in other situations.

Dual-Stage Fuel Injection
Two sets of injectors per cylinder for both low- and high-rpm performance. Instantaneous high-rpm response, along with great low-rpm metering and clean running.

Assisted Slipper Clutch
Superbikes can deliver a great deal of backtorque through the driveline, upsetting handling. Not the CBR1000RR C-ABS. Its Honda-designed Assisted Slipper Clutch is the same type used on our MotoGP bikes. The design does away with the need for heavy clutch springs ensuring full power transmission with smooth shifting and a light clutch pull at the lever.

Twin-Spar Aluminum Chassis
Four-piece aluminum frame design balances strength, rigidity, and lightness. Wrapped tightly around the engine, the structure helps centralize the CBR1000RR C-ABS's mass for more responsive handling--some of the best anywhere on two wheels.

Unit Pro-Link® Rear Suspension
The CBR1000RR C-ABS features premium suspension front and rear. In the back, the Unit Pro Link design uses a Balance Free Rear shock that uses a double-tube design for smoother and more accurate response.

Gull-Wing Swingarm
The CBR1000RR C-ABS’s braced aluminum "gull wing" swingarm is deliberately long. That helps deliver improved traction and gives the rider excellent chassis feedback.

2013 Honda CBR600RRA C-ABS Features and Benefits

Line-beam headlights

The new headlight lens shape for 2013 is functional in directing air into the Ram Air System. Line-beam headlight features two-piece reflector design utilizing two H7 bulbs for optimum light distribution and unique compact design. The result: the headlight helps you see better, and also helps maintain visibility in traffic.

Dual-Stage Ram Air

For 2013 the Ram Air funnel has been redesigned to improve torque over 7,000 rpm. Nose mounted, two-stage ram air system provides a high volume of cool air to the airbox, for linear power delivery and superb engine performance.

BPF Front Suspension

The CBR600RRA C-ABS's all-new front suspension uses a Big Piston Fork (BPF). The new 41mm Showa fork is smoother and more responsive, and gives you excellent front-end feedback.

Radial Mounted Front-Brake Calipers

The CBR600RRA C-ABS uses radial-mounted monoblock front-brake calipers. This construction makes the caliper stiffer, and that means you get better brake feel more linear, powerful stopping. Each caliper also uses four chromium-plated aluminum pistons for smooth, stiction-free operation.

New 12-Spoke Wheels

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

Dual-Stage Fuel Injection

For 2013 the Dual-Stage Fuel injection system was revised to achieve more low to mid range power. 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.

Centrally Located Fuel Tank

The CBR600RRA C-ABS’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.

Unit Pro-Link Suspension

For 2013, the Unit Pro-Link design incorporates new rear shock settings for better suspension performance.

Electronic Combined Anti-Lock Braking (C-ABS)

Electronically controlled Combined ABS distributes brake force over both wheels, helping to maintain braking confidence in less than ideal conditions. The system electronically measures rider input on the brake lever and pedal and applies only the front or rear brake in some cases, or combines both brakes in other situations.

Redesigned Tail Section with LED Tail Light

For 2013, a new LED tail light sits above the exhaust for a more compact and functional design.

2013 Honda CBR600RR Review

Better Than Ever...

For 2013 the best just got a whole lot better. We’ve given the CBR600RR some major updates, including new 12-spoke wheels, revised ECU settings, and a fine-tuned ram-air system to increase torque. Best of all, the CBR600RR gets a new “Big Piston” fork and retuned rear shock. And it’s all wrapped up in some sharp new bodywork. There’s even a version with Honda’s revolutionary Electronic Combined Anti-Lock Braking System (C-ABS), the first ever on a production Supersport motorcycle.

New Suspension
The 2013 CBR600RR features new suspension front. Up front, the new 41mm “Big Piston” Showa fork is smoother and more responsive; in the back, the Unit Pro Link design provides a smoother response and better performance.

Hot Wheels
New for 2013, we've added 12-spoke aluminum cast wheels, which look great with the CBR60RR’s redesigned bodywork.

Tomorrow's Brakes, Today

2013 Honda CBR600RR Key Features

- 599cc liquid-cooled inline four-cylinder
- Honda Electronic Steering Damper

New for 2013

2013 Honda CBR600RR Motorcycle Photos- Redesigned, centrally located ram-air intake system and improved ECU and PGM-DSFI setting deliver more power in the midrange and enhanced throttle response in the high-rpm range.

- New 41mm Showa Big Piston Fork (BPF) features a larger damper piston that generates damping forces at lower internal pressures to allow for smoother, more responsive fork action. Adjustable for spring preload plus compression and rebound damping adjustability.

- Unit Pro-Link® rear suspension features a revised shock with new damper settings for improved overall performance.

- Using knowledge gained from the Honda RC212V MotoGP race program, aerodynamic improvements were made to this newest CBR600RR, which shows a 6.5 percent decrease in drag over the previous model. The development and testing used with this all-new CBR600RR bodywork, in turn, led to aerodynamic advancements that have been incorporated into the current RC213V MotoGP racing machine.

- This newly found aerodynamic efficiency lends itself to more agile handling and improved wind deflection for enhanced rider comfort.

- Repsol Edition racing colors available for the first time ever on the CBR600RR (standard model only).

- Standard model available in Red, Repsol Edition or White/Blue/Red.

2013 Honda CBR600RR Features and Benefits

Line-beam headlights

The new headlight lens shape for 2013 is functional in directing air into the Ram Air System. Line-beam headlight features two-piece reflector design utilizing two H7 bulbs for optimum light distribution and unique compact design. The result: the headlight helps you see better, and also helps maintain visibility in traffic.

Dual-Stage Ram Air

For 2013 the Ram Air funnel has been redesigned to improve torque over 7,000 rpm. Nose mounted, two-stage ram air system provides a high volume of cool air to the airbox, for linear power delivery and superb engine performance.

BPF Front Suspension

The CBR600RR's all-new front suspension uses a Big Piston Fork (BPF). The new 41mm Showa fork is smoother and more responsive, and gives you excellent front-end feedback.

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 more linear, powerful stopping. Each caliper also uses four chromium-plated aluminum pistons for smooth, stiction-free operation.

New 12-Spoke Wheels

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

Dual-Stage Fuel Injection

For 2013 the Dual-Stage Fuel injection system was revised to achieve more low to mid range power. 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.

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.

Unit Pro-Link Suspension

For 2013, the Unit Pro-Link design incorporates new rear shock settings for better suspension performance.

Redesigned Tail Section with LED Tail Light

For 2013, a new LED tail light sits above the exhaust for a more compact and functional design.
