After an 11-year platform freeze, Honda Motor Europe shows off its new 2024 CBR600RR from the EICMA Motorcycle Show. Big Red’s supersport is part of Honda’s CBR sportbike series, which is known for its racy design, performance capabilities, and track-focused agility. Aesthetically, the CBR600RR appears similar in shape and outward appearance to the CBR1000RR superbike which we tested during the 2021 Honda CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP First Ride Review and 2021 Honda CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP MC Commute Review articles and videos.

Editor’s note: We tested the outgoing version during the 2020 Honda CBR600RR ABS MC Commute Review article and video.

The 2024 CBR600RR appears leaner and meaner and follows the design language of Honda’s CBR1000RR superbike.

The CBR600RR is powered by a high-revving 599cc liquid-cooled inline four-cylinder engine. This engine is known for its responsive throttle and strong midrange power. The updated version is good for 119 ponies and 46 lb.-ft. torque at the crank accounting to Honda Motor Europe.

The CBR600RR continues to use its signature undertail exhaust, which was a popular design trait in the late 2000s.

It rolls on a new lightweight twin-spar aluminum frame designed to provide stability and responsive handling. Suspension components include a 41mm Showa Big Piston inverted fork and Pro-Link Showa shock.

Official technical specifications and pricing haven’t been released but we’re glad to hear Honda’s producing a new CBR600RR.

But the big news is in the modern electronics package highlighted by a six-axis IMU (similar chip to what’s in modern smartphones giving the vehicle positional awareness [in relation to the road] in roll, yaw, and pitch axis). This powers the adjustable riding modes, lean-angle-sensitive cornering ABS, and nine-level traction control (Honda calls it Honda Selectable Torque Control).

Honda’s 600 sportbike returns to the European market after a six-year hiatus. No word on official technical specifications and price, nor whether it will make its way to North America for 2024.

Beach Boy: A surf-ready Yamaha WR155R scrambler from Thailand

Yamaha WR155R scrambler by Dream Fast Co.
A surfboard rack on a motorcycle might seem like a gimmick to some, but if you live in Bali and love surfing, it’s a downright necessity. The Indonesian island is peppered with surf spots—and a small bike with a rack is the best way to get to them. It doesn’t hurt if that motorcycle looks as good as this Yamaha WR155R scrambler.

The bike was built by Dream Fast Co. for Tiw, the founder of the Laem Yah Rayong Surf Club. Both parties are based in Thailand, but the influence came directly from Bali’s motorcycle and surf culture. Tiw has Balinese friends who use vintage enduro bikes to find hard-to-reach surf spots, and wanted to capture that vibe in his Yamaha WR155R.

Dream Fast Co.’s mandate was to take the modern and reliable WR155R and inject it with a big dose of classic Yamaha dirt bike style. It sounds simple enough on paper, but in reality, it meant wading through piles of plastic to shed the WR155R’s contemporary aesthetic.

Once the Yamaha was denuded of its plastics, the Dream Fast Co. crew set about reworking its lines. The subframe was hacked off, and a new one was fabricated, this time with a kicked-up loop at the back. A new seat sits up top; it’s designed for one, but there is a smidge of space out back if you and your passenger want to get extremely cozy.

This SUV was finished in a new Bronco Area 51 Blue with the original Bronco Wimbledon White hardtop, roll cage, dash, grille and accessories, and rides on color-matched Ford steel wheels wrapped in Toyo Mud Country tires. The cabin includes high-back bucket seats with a console, a rear seat that folds up, shoulder seat belts and a Vintage Air system for heating and cooling.
