2009 Honda CBR600RR leaked with ABS and crazy colors
The 2009 Honda CBR600RR has leaked onto the internet. Details are still scarce, but we do know that it comes with Honda Combined ABS and some pretty bizarre color schemes. We'll bring you details as they emerge.


Update: The official UK press release, with technical details, follows the jump.
Update 2: ABS, which is optional, adds 10kg to the non-ABS 184kg kerb weight.

Now in its fourth generation, the 2009 machine builds on the heritage of blistering pace and supreme control set in 2003 by the first CBR600RR. When the all-new CBR600RR was launched in 2007, Honda once again was at the forefront of the 600cc Supersport class – the most intensely fought in motorcycling – with a machine which was the most advanced in the category.



For 2009, the goal for Honda’s development team has once again been to enhance a machine capable of fast, intense track riding while also delivering a controllable, easy-going road-riding experience. Adding to this experience is the inclusion of Honda’s Combined ABS on the CBR600RR C-ABS version. The highlights of the technical enhancements to the 2009 CBR600RR include:

• Changes to piston, cylinder head and exhaust which lead to improved torque from 8,000-12,000rpm for increased engine flexibility and driveability
• Fairing improvements to enhance stability and reduce wind noise
• Electronically controlled Combined ABS for better braking performance along with increased safety and all-round rider confidence (optional)
• 184kg kerb weight to keep the machine the lightest in its class

To enhance the new performance and mild aesthetic update, a new colour range has been introduced to make the most of these changes, to include a limited-edition Pearl Sunbeam White design with electric blue fairing and front and rear cowling graphics, a Pearl Sunbeam White design with white/red/blue Tricolour, as well as Graphite Black with Bright Lime Green Metallic and Graphite Black with Italian Red.

Their color schemes are so riceriffic they are targeted towards a younger crowd. I think it looks cool, but damn its very busy. The abs is designed to have optimum braking in the bike front and rear. Next traction control and then you wont need rider skill anymore. haha

Those are official photos released by Honda and are legit for the Fireblade 1000cc. We'll see if those color schemes make it to America, which they probably will.
