"Italian magazine Motociclismo has released their first picture of the new 2003 CBR 600 RR, which will be officially presented in September in the 2002 Monaco Show (Intermot is in Monaco this year).

Even though some previous Photoshop-edited pictures already gave some pointers as to what the new bike was going to look like, it's certain that the new 600 class sportbike from Honda will resemble the RC 211 V, and I personally can't wait to see a Valentino Rossi replica.

The new CBR is claimed to put out 115 HP, and a completely redesigned frame and suspensions, in order to compete with the coming injected competition from Yamaha (the R6) and Kawasaki (ZX636) as well as to fight off the recent attack from Suzuki with the GSXR 600. Even so, if the picture above is anything to go by, it looks pretty similar to the 2002 F4i, except for the fairing.

All CBR fans' eyes are on the Intermot show..."

Now someone spills the beans... i had my heart all set on the F4 too. NOT the F4i. Well if thats not a F5 then maybe i'll stick to the F4 and wait for the F5. Im making the F4 dual seat anyway.

If thats pretty close to what its going to look like in '03 then i dont think im going to bother with the F5. Too close to a F4i for me to finance a new bike for.
