    Probably one of the cleanest looking bikes to come out in a while. I love the exhaust under the seat.

    I haven't driven one, but I want to. Last time I was there, they had two of them at ProCycle, one black, one red.

    If I was to go out and buy a 600 today. It'd be one of those. No Contest.

    Ive ridden both the CBR 600 F4i and the 600RR and honestly, Id put money on it that the RR is NO faster than the F4i, its more track oriented but thats about it.

    New R1 is awesome, not partial to R6's cause every kid with a new 5A and a bank loan has them. The new Kawi ZX-10 is nice too.
    Half the lights on the R6 and R1 are fake, only one actually works per side, not functional, just there for looks when the bike is shut off.

    New 2004 CBR 1000RR

    CBR1000RR

    Although yesterday's article provided a link to the Honda Europe web site with details of the 2004 CBR1000RR, we received our press kit from American Honda today with photos of the U.S. model, and additional details.
    Since Honda is introducing several new models, we will provide a detailed introduction of the CBR1000RR in a later article. Nevertheless, the highlights include the Honda Electronic Steering Damper (HESD) discussed yesterday, as well as the cassette six-speed transmission, and, of course, the new 998cc in-line, four-cylinder engine.
    Another interesting aspect of this bike is the Dual Stage Fuel Injection system -- featuring two injectors per cylinder. Only one injector is working at lower rpm levels, with the second injector kicking in to enhance top-end power.
    Of course, the CBR1000RR is virtually new from the ground up, and all of its major chassis components are new, including the aluminum frame, radial-mounted front brake calipers (gripping 310mm discs), the Unit Pro-Link rear suspension system (inspired by the RC211V MotoGP machine, and first seen in production on last year's CBR600RR).

    Other features to note in the CBR1000RR include the new swingarm which is the "longest in class" according to Honda, and undoubtedly results from the very short (front-to-rear) and compact engine. The new ram air system feeds the powerful engine, which is cooled by a radiator dramatically larger than found on the CBR954RR (40% larger volume -- clearly aimed at racing).
    The steering damper may be the most interesting technology on the CBR1000RR. It allows modulation of steering damping based on road speed. Essentially, a relief valve is gradually closed as speeds increase making the flow of oil within the damper unit more difficult, and thus gradually increasing resistance. The result is light steering effort at low speeds and increased effort at higher speeds. Although the U.S. press material does not mention this, press material in Europe indicates this steering damper is also sensitive to rate of acceleration. Any experienced street rider knows that hard acceleration can be a significant factor causing steering instability, independent from the speed you are traveling. Since the oil relief valve is controlled by a powerful ECU, it would seem Honda could apply more sophisticated criteria than simple road speed to the operation of this damping system. We will clarify this later and report back to you.
    Honda is the only manufacturer to introduce a new open-class sport bike for 2004 without providing a claimed dry weight figure. Is it possible Honda took a "wait and see" approach here? Kawasaki has claimed its new ZX-10R weighs 365 pounds -- an incredible figure for an open-class machine. Honda could easily substitute a magnesium or titanium part, or parts, before announcing an official dry weight, as necessary, in order to be the lightest in the class.
    Honda has not announced the price or availability date for the CBR1000RR.

    R-who???

    The front end of the bike looks like it has down syndrom.

    I like the new ZX-10 and new R1, the R1 is going to raise the bar (again) in the superbike world. 180hp, its geting kinda scary, nobody can use that.
