Shorn of all unnecessary accoutrements and equipped with track-focused suspension, instruments and engine mapping, Honda is targeting club racers and track day fanatics with these new stripped-down CBRs. Both models feature variable rear ride height, slipper clutches, revised engine mapping, race exhausts and track instrumentation. But it’s what the CBR1000RR and CBR600RR come without that matters: no lights, no turn signals, no pillion pad and, of course, no license plate. Follow the jump to see the CBR600RR.
Devoid of adornment, the skeletal, matte black bodywork highlights the incredibly well resolved shapes of both bikes, but especially the CBR1000RR. This wins our vote for best-looking bike of 2008. So far, neither model is available outside Japan.
