Honda CBR750RR In The Works? 

Honda recent introduction of the CB750 Hornet seems to be doing well particularly among motorcycle journalist who managed to get a taste of the bike. 

  • Honda CB750 Hornet is the latest bike to features Honda’s newest parallel-twin mill. 
  • The Hornet could spawn a fully-faired CBR750RR. 

The Hornet is the second machine to be equipped with Honda’s latest parallel-twin 750cc mill after the XL750 Transalp. With that in mind, could the new platform make a good sportbike? Well, according to credible European and Japanese publication, that seems to be the case. 

Moreover, looking at Honda’s tendency to introduce a fully-faired machine alongside a naked bike, the idea doesn’t seem far-fetched. 

Also, with the market currently shifting towards middleweight sportsbike like the Aprilia RS660 and Yamaha YZF-R7, it is likely that Honda plans to take on the same route. 

After all, the 750 mill is impressive as it is capable of cranking 91hp and 70Nm.

At the same time, Honda could easily make use of the Hornet’s lightweight frame as well as the adjustable inverted Showa forks for the fully-faired version. 

Design wise, we expect that the 750RR to follow the same design language as the CBR500R and CBR650R.
