New 2021 Honda CBR600RR to be Announced Aug. 21

by | Aug 7, 2020 | Honda, motoGP News

Honda confirmed a remodeled CBR600RR is on the way. Full details about the 2021 Honda CBR600RR will be released on Aug. 21, but the manufacturer released a preview of the supersport’s new look along with a teaser video.

From the single released photo, we can see a much sharper headlight design. It’s hard to see clearly from the angle of the photo but the fairing has a single winglet on each side, right below the HRC logo. The side panels are new, looking like a blend between the previous CBR600RR and the CBR1000RR-R. Eschewing the current trends, the new CBR600RR will continue to have an undertail exhaust instead of a low-slung unit.

According to Honda, the updated CBR600RR will continue to use a 599cc liquid-cooled DOHC Inline-Four, but it will have received some changes to meet current emissions requirements. Though the current-generation CBR600RR continues to be sold in North America, it has been discontinued in most of the world including Europe and even Japan because it didn’t meet Euro 4 standards. It’s worth noting the teaser image and video were released by Honda Japan; Japan’s emissions rules are in line with Europe, so it’s a safe bet the new CBR600RR will meet Euro 5 standards.

Honda also confirmed the new CBR600RR will be equipped with the latest electronics. We assume this includes using an ECU with a six-axis inertial measurement unit with traction control, wheelie control and cornering ABS, though we’ll wait for official confirmation from Honda. The video confirms the CBR600RR will have a color TFT display.

We’ll have to wait until Aug. 21 for further information on the 2021 Honda CBR600RR. Check back here on Motorcycle.com for the latest.
