2011 Honda CBR

For 2011, the Honda CBR600RR remains the same as 2010, but with new red/black and black paint schemes.

The machine is also available with Honda’s Combined ABS, but only in Black. This C-ABS  is a true “brake-by-wire” design, which means that they are electronically controlled. Unlike conventional ABS, where the feel at the lever is soft due to hydraulic pressure, the C-ABS offers a more responsive brake-lever feel.

The CBR 600 has won more AMA championships than any other manufacturer, and for 2011 Honda releases a machine that offers a great balance of power and handling.
