CBR600RR 04 vs 05

Discussion in 'Bike Reviews, Questions and Suggestions' started by raven, Jul 14, 2007.

  1. Just wondering what the major differences are between the 04 and 05 CBR600RR...whether is was largely cosmetic updates etc, or if there are any real differences in the major componenets - engine/trans...etc.

    Was the 05 model a major upgrade over the 04?, or just an update.

    Thanks for any opinions/insights. :grin:
  2. That's a young man's bike John... :grin:
  3. ahahahaha...but I'm young at heart, Loz... :LOL: :p
  4. From memory, the 05 featured USD suspension, some revised engine components, revised styling (you need a magnifying glass) etc...

    Both are awesomely good bikes and you'd need to be a racer to really pick them apart.
  5. radial brakes on the 05, USD front forks, and revised engine port management, more smoother throughout rev range, and some cosmetic changes.
  6. ok...Thanks guys.. :)
  7. Isn't that just perfect??? I just bought the '03!! I love her anyway... I'll pick her up on thursday!!
