Default Re: NICKY HAYDEN TO GPS

I suspect the only reason Nicky got the slot was to prevent him from jumping ship to Yamaha.

I guess 2cd place doesn't buy you much in the big time.

This would seem like the most logical move. It would make more sense than putting R&D money into what is going to be their second tier 600.

I've done 13500+miles on CBR600 in the past three years with doing no more than oil changes and lubing the chain. I don't think there is anything to worry about.

The wing's still there; it's the big black slash that's missing. Tasty.

Default Discrepancy?

The UK site said "However, while current systems provide excellent performance for most on-road riding applications and engine speeds, the new CBR600RR was, from its inception, intended to deliver strong power all the way up to a blazing 15,000rpm power peak."

The introduction of the USA offering says "redline", not power peak, and also that the RR features "more over-rev capability".

I wish Honda would state hp and torque @ rpm figures.
