1996 Honda CBR900RR

Launched in 1992 the Honda CBR900RR set a precedent for light weight in the superbike class. Powered by an 893cc in-line four cylinder engine, the new 900RR weighed-in at just 453 pounds, a mere 4 pounds heavier than the CBR600F2 - with a full tank of gas.

1996 brought the first major changes to the CBR900RR. In order to achieve a more optimized balance of rigidity, Honda significantly altered the 1996 CBR's chassis and suspension. The frame and swingarm were fabricated from larger, thinner-walled extrusions for reduced torsional rigidity. The fork and shock internals were re-designed, and the swingarm pivot raised by 5 mm (0.2 in). Revised ergonomics brought the bars 10 mm (0.4 in) higher and swept back five degrees more than earlier models, along with a slimmer gas tank. Engine updates included a bump in displacement to 919 cc (56.1 cu in) via a 1 mm (0.039 in) bore increase, slightly higher compression, a curved radiator, larger muffler, extra clutch plates, smaller alternator, and the addition of a throttle position sensor. The 1996 model carried over to 1997 unchanged except for the updates to color/graphics offerings.

1996 Honda CBR900RR

The original Honda CBR600F concept, known as the Honda Hurricane through 1987 and 1988, was the platform of today's entire Honda CBR line. The CBR900RR was on the market from 1992 through 1999, it was replaced by the 929RR for 2000 and 2001 and finally the 954RR in 2002 and 2003. The 900RR series was replaced by the all new 1000RR in 2004. The line has certainly improved over the years but one thing remains the same - Honda has consistently produced high performance, well-bred and affordable sportbikes.
