2008 Honda CBR600RR HANNspree


Now in its fifth year of production, the CBR600RR has firmly established itself as both a winner on the streets and a dominating force on the racetracks of the world.
A mid-displacement Super Sports favourite renowned for its peerless combination of aggressive performance and comfortable riding ease, the CBR600RR and its
immediate predecessor, the CBR600F Sport, have together garnered an astounding six consecutive World Supersport championships in the capable of hands of privateer team Ten Kate Racing and its extraordinary riders.

Over the years, the Ten Kate Racing team has enjoyed phenomenal success attained through hard work and steadfast determination, culminating this year in new rider Kenan Sofuoglu’s record-setting capture of the 2007 World Supersport crown at Brands Hatch circuit with three more races left in the season. This impressive victory has been especially significant as it was accomplished aboard the totally new thirdgeneration CBR600RR, proving its dominating performance potential right out of the box.

Over the last six years and four generations of Honda CBR600 supremacy, the following Ten Kate riders have ridden to victory in the World Supersport
championship for complete domination of the series:

• 2002 — Fabien Foret (CBR600F Sport)
• 2003 — Chris Vermeulen (CBR600RR)
• 2004 — Karl Muggeridge (CBR600RR)
• 2005 — Sébastien Charpentier (CBR600RR)
• 2006 — Sébastian Charpentier (CBR600RR)
• 2007 — Kenan Sofuoglu (CBR600RR)

Simultaneously, in this year’s exciting World Superbike championship, the same HANNspree Ten Kate Honda team is currently leading the series with the remarkable James Toseland powering his CBR1000RR Fireblade through wet and dry to take a commanding lead heading into the final stretch to the end of the season. Achieving a remarkable rate of success in hard-fought battles against formidable racing competition, rider, team and Honda CBR are setting the stage for even greater victories to come.
