Return of the supersport - Honda reveals new CBR600RR
Nobody was expecting another 600 supersport from Honda
The 600 supersport class has been a dying breed since electronics were unleashed on the litre bike market, making them far more accessible to newer riders who would've traditionally used a 600cc bike as a stepping stone to the rather bonkers 1000cc missiles.
