The 2006 Honda CBR1000RR is a mid-model redesign, taking place two years after the release of the very first CBR Thou in 2004. Do the math and you'll realize that Honda engineers must have been working on this bike while the '04 model was being released.
The objectives for the '06 development team were to lose some weight off the portly CBR, improve its turning capabilities and get a little more power out of the inline-Four powerplant. According to Toland, Honda redesigned 60% of all the components on the motorcycle. Honda says 17 lbs. have been lopped off and power is up 3%.Motorcycle fairings
