2009 CBR 600RR Yoshimura RS-5 Slip-On...
Waiting for Buttonwillow Raceway’s 1.9-mile West Loop to dry under a thick layer of Central Valley fog, it’s easy to mistake this 2005-spec CBR600RR for the ’04 model parked alongside it. Walking around the new bike with a fresh cup of coffee, differences are subtle. The ’05 bike’s new plastic skin is a little sleeker, tailored to cheat the wind and reinforce its resemblance to the CBR1000RR as well as Hondas RC211V MotoGP weapon. Up front, the inverted 41mm fork, radial-mount four-pot Tokico calipers and 310mm rotors are de rigueur for any hardcore ’05 600-classer.

The CBR600RR has been developed and inspired by the Honda RC211V MotoGP bike. The same physical aspect of the CBR600RR and RC211V is intentional. Under the eyes are MotoGP technologies that were made available for the first time on a motorbike production such as the Pro-Link rear suspension and dual-phase fuel injection (PGM-DSFI). Both were taken directly from Honda MotoGP bike.
