In 1998

The Hornet 600 appeared with the combination of 3 innovative features!

High Impact


Multi Purpose

“Sports Commuter”



“Direct from CBR”

CONCEPT: Street Fighter with a High Impact Naked Design

●Dynamic Performance : Technology & Racing DNA for FUN Riding.

●High Impact Design : Cool style for “Pride of ownership”.

●Multi Purpose : Easy to use for customer satisfaction.

Winning huge appreciation from many customers,

the Hornet 600 created a new trend called “Performance Naked”.

Slide3 l.jpg

Maintaining the original concept,

the Hornet has been continually evolving to exceed customers’ expectations.

It has been always the pioneer of “Performance Naked”.




No. 1 motorcycle in Europe

from 2001 to 2003

The Hornet has been the most successful model in Europe,

and is loved everywhere in the world.

In 2007

Competitor A

Competitor B

However, during the previous years,

competitors followed the successful Hornet concept.

Thus, Performance Naked market has evolved drastically.

New Hornet 600 “RAISING THE BAR”

Slide5 l.jpg

Honda has developed the new CBR600RR, showering it with the latest technology.

This technology has been evolved for the Hornet concept.

Latest Technology

transferred to Hornet


●Impressive Power delivery

PGM-FI, Exhaust system

●Light weight & Mass centralization

Engine, Exhaust Layout ,Tail light

Improve the power delivery & weight reduction

contribute to ease to maneuver.

Slide6 l.jpg

Engine difference from CBR600RR


Valve timing optimized


Shape optimized

Die-Cast (CBR: forging)

Fuel Injection

1 injection (CBR: 2 injections)


In-port & Combustion chamberoptimized


Inertial weight optimized


Ratio optimized

Slide7 l.jpg

< Light Weight & Mass centralization>

Making the Hornet more like “CBR600RR”,

- the engine more compact

- every component smaller

- every part locate more forward & downward

Mass Centralization contributes “extreme ease of handling”

Very easy to pass through the heavy traffic and to change the direction quickly in winding roads.

From crankshaft to the counter:


Thanks to its compactness

together with Aluminum cylinders

< Light Weight & Mass centralization>

For the best weight distribution, the engine must be very compact.Only the one from 07YM CBR600RR could meet this requirement.

Engine weight reduction: 8%

Slide9 l.jpg

In order to realize the rigidity we aim,

its weight would increase by about 2kg

due to the required thickness.

Steel frame could NOT meet our requirements.


All-New Aluminium Gravity Die-Cast Mono-Backbone Frame

< Light Weight & Mass centralization>


06YM Hornet frame

Steel Mono-Backbone frame

- Simple and light weight.

- Offers a lot of styling possibility.

- Slim shape that offers confidence inspiring.

(better footing, easier knee-grip)

- Weight reduction (-3.7% incl. Seat rail , Engine hanger bracket)

- Lateral stiffness 16% improved

Slide10 l.jpg

< Light Weight & Mass centralization>

Tapered box-section aluminum swing-arm

06YM :540.0mm

07YM :579.1mm

Improved handling

Lateral stiffness 73% improved

Torsional stiffness 51% improved
