    2021 Honda CBR600RR 'final edition' officially announced in promo video

    A few days back HT Auto reported that a final edition of the CBR600RR is rumored to be around the corner and now Honda has officially announced the resurrected model in a new promo video.

    As expected, the final edition of the CBR600RR features a number of nice little touches which pay a final tribute to the Honda's iconic middleweight supersports machine as it retires forever.

    Some key details, such as the powertrain, frame and running gear have been carried over from the previous model. These detail have remained unchanged considering that it is a final one-off model and not something which will remain on the production line for years to come. As suggested in the past, the iconic underseat single exhaust has also been carried over which is a signature of the original CBR600RR bike.



    It will most likely continue with the 599 cc, inline four-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine which will be slightly reworked.

    Expect a power output of somewhere around 120 to 125 PS from the reworked powertrain. The new model will also be updated with a host of rider aids. A new electronics package will be a carried over from the litre-class 'Fireblade'. Expect all-modern bits such as six-axis IMU with lean sensitive traction control, cornering ABS, anti-wheelie, among others to bless the bike. Along with the new electronic wizardry, it will also benefit from the usual features such as ride-by-wire, power modes, a quickshifter and autoblipper.

    As far as India launch goes, it is quite next to impossible that the 2021 CBR600RR will arrive in the country considering the 'exorbitant' costing it will attract.

    The driver had flipped an 18-wheeler the previous week; was caught with a crack pipe on his person a few months earlier; and was charged with drunk driving in May:

    https://www.bostonherald.com/2019/06...xas-weeks-ago/

    The Massachusetts trucker charged with killing seven bikers last week in New Hampshire had flipped an 18-wheeler two weeks earlier in Texas, according to police.

    The same Texas department also reported finding a crack pipe in Volodymyr Zhukovskyy’s pocket a few months earlier when he was “talking to himself and acting strange” at Denny’s.

    But when Zhukovskyy returned home after the 18-wheeler crash, Westfield Transport — a trucking company one expert said has a “pretty bad” track record with drivers — still let him behind the wheel.

    The drunk driving charge should have immediately led to a loss of his commercial driving license, but he fell through cracks in the system.

    So many shocking lapses. This guy should not have been allowed to keep driving under any circumstances.

    The crash has also lead to the resignation of the head of the RMV:

    https://www.bostonglobe.com/2019/06/...8GJ/story.html

    The head of the state’s Registry of Motor Vehicles, Erin Deveney, resigned Tuesday following revelations that the West Springfield truck driver accused of killing seven motorcycle riders in New Hampshire last week had been charged with drunk driving in Connecticut in May, part of a long history of infractions.

    State officials said Volodymyr Zhukovskyy, who is charged with negligent homicide in the fiery crash, should have lost his commercial license after the Connecticut incident, but the registry failed to act, allowing the 23-year-old to remain on the road.

    A terrible incident, but the cause is not yet clear. Was he inebriated or was it some sort of diverted attention or sleep depreviation or something?
    Anyways, may the deceased R.I.P. God bless their souls.
    Or on drugs. The number of people on drugs causing 'accidents' has increased by a lot is the US

    Pickup truck driver arrested following New Hampshire highway collision that left 7 motorcyclists dea

    The driver said to be behind the wheel of a pickup truck that collided with seven bikers in New Hampshire on Friday – killing all of them – has been arrested at his home Monday in*Massachusetts.
    Volodoymyr Zhukovskyy, 23, is now facing*seven counts of negligent homicide*after being taken into custody this morning in West Springfield, the New Hampshire Attorney General’s Office*announced. He is expected to make his first court appearance this afternoon.
    The crash unfolded at around 6:30 p.m. Friday on U.S. 2, a two-lane highway that passes through the small town just north of Mount Washington. Witnesses described a "devastating" scene as bystanders tried to help the injured amid shattered motorcycles.
