Honda CBR Motorcycle's

Honda CBR models are a series of motorcycles that have a sports-oriented feel. Some of these motorcycles are marketed as "Race Replicas". Race Replicas are those motorcycles that mimic the look and feel of race motorcycles with a lesser degree of performance. The motorcycles on the CBR series have inline engines with the exception of the CBR 125 and CBR 150 that have single cylinders. A less sports-oriented group of motorcycles that have inline engines make up Honda's CB Series. Below is a list of a few models found on Honda's CBR series:

Honda CBR 125 - this model is for an entry level sportsman and is a 125cc, 4 stroke motorbike. It debuted on the market in 2004 and since then, it has not been modified till 2007. Since its release, it has been an extremely popular motorcycle for Honda and by 2005 it has become UK's best selling motorcycle. In 2007, the CBR 125 received radical changes that made it look like the CBR1000RR Fireblade. The color scheme was also modified in 2007.

Honda CBR 250 - this bike belongs to a series that was produced between 1986 and 1996. They are lightweight 4 cylinders, 4 stroke, and 6 gear bike. This model was also capable of revving up to 18,500 rpm.

Honda CBR 600 F - this bike was originally known as the "Hurricane". It debuted in 1987 and was produced until the 1990s. This was the first of Honda's inline, 4 cylinder and fully faired sport bike.

Honda CBR 600 RR - this is a 599 cc Honda Super sport motorcycle that debuted in 2003. It is the race replica of Honda's CBRFx series. This Honda CBR was revolutionary in the fact that it was one of the very first street sport bikes that utilized MotoGP technology. The "RR" designation stands "Race Replica" because of the fact that there is great emphasis on the racing characteristics of the bike. In 2005 the Honda CBR 600 RR received major revisions to its body, while in 2007 it was totally redesigned - with the new look revealed on September 06, 2006.
