As far i know, theres nothing known as CBR1600RR. I'm kindof sure about this.

The following Hondas are 1.6L, but they are from the CBX series, and are prototypes.

well, D-U-H....!!!! this one is kind of a joke, as it's the first 600rr (BRAND NEW) that i've seen with such cheap tinkering; you expect to see them on zmas and modded pulsars, but why on an ORIGINAL cbr, for crying out loud...???!!

well, i guess i shoulda added a smiley after my last sentence, to imply the joke...well, at least iceman got it right...

I think he had a complex with all the liter bikes so added the 1 to outdo them.

I feel after spending some lakhs on the bike he should have been educated enough to know that RR stands for Race Replica's and their aren't any 1600cc bike races. Correct me if I am wrong please.

@moralfibre- well, it isn't the 'RR' thing; it's the "1600" thing- the question is- WHY did he do it...? i mean, c'mon- a guy spending almost 7 lacs on a bike (if imported legally), shouldn't do this sorta stuff....oh, and yes, the boy who drove the bike off seemed to be about 17-18 years old...perhaps he has lotsa moolah, and just wanted a "dhoom" bike...

Why? Simple, Poser! Poser! Poser!

Do you even doubt that he's bought this CBR out of passion for bikes? I seriously doubt it. I've come across many...many SBK riders who just buy 'em to show off. A small instance where this R6 rider did'nt even know the bhp his R6 pumped out, and when asked about the top end, guess wat? he said proudly, 120kmph!!!
