The new CBR600R comes with a redesigned exhaust and muffler–four exhaust downpipes sweep together around the front of the engine to to deliver a spine-tingling roar as revs climb. The bike stands on 17-inch, five-spoked, Y-shaped aluminium wheels.

Also, the bike comes with a Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC), for manually adjusting rear-wheel traction.


The bike is equipped with an LCD digital instrument cluster that features a digital speedometer, digital bar-graph tachometer, dual trip meters, digital fuel-level gauge and fuel-consumption gauge, digital clock, water-temp gauge, and gear-position and shift-up indicator.

The bike’s other notable features are its Emergency Stop Signal (ESS) and Honda Ignition Security System (HISS).
