Internet sources indicate a new Honda CBR600RR  with CBR1000RR-R-inspired styling is due later this year. A model which has been absent from its line since 2017.

New baby Fireblade coming soon



After months of rumors, it was finally confirmed by Honda themselves thru their Japanese website.

The 2021 bike will be a heavily updated model focusing on styling and its electronics suite to make it up to date with the other 600cc supersports.

It is also believed that this may be the final iteration for the CBR600RR. The great expense to make a 600cc four-cylinder engine that can meet ever-stricter emissions restrictions and the shrinking of 600cc race replica 600cc as the market has shifted to full blown 1,000 cc superbikes or to the newer, cheaper, nimbler and more exciting 400cc-250cc bikes.

The 2021 bike will benefit from the aero developments of the new CBR1000RR-R superbike. This include downforce-generating aerodynamics and smaller headlights on either side of the central ram-air intake.

It will also receive a big upgrade to its electronics. A new inertial measurement unit (IMU) will be standard and includes including lean-sensitive traction control and cornering ABS.

The 2021 bike is expected to make the same power of around 115 hp, but this already considers the power sapping effects of new higher emission standards.

Rumors indicated that it will be globally launced on August 21.

Are we going to see the baby Fireblade here in the Philippines also?

And will our very own Troy Alberto race it in the Asian Supersport 6000 next year?
