Honda just gets silly with the number of "R's". One of these days they are going to offer a model simply called RRRRRRRR.PatMatrick said:On the CBR 600RR it means Race Ready

I'm just shocked you couldnt figure that out yourself. R=race.Hippie said:That's it? That sux.. thought it would be something creative.
TeXas_RsX said:The meaning for the "R" first originated back in the 1500's when pirates ruled the seas.
They would call their ships accordingly with the R afterwards such as, FairladyR, and HellshipR, basically a short form for their phrase "Arrrrrrrr!"
Later in the 20th century America brought this back, but used if for automobiles, hence the "R" on the ending of a lot of car and motorcycle models
Which is why Harley's suck. New models are the same bike with another letter thrown in representing some bit that really changes nothing.KevinTheCake said:Harley model designations are a sequence of letters and numbers, combined in limited ways. The sequences can be long, as in the 2006 model designation FLHTCUSE.
The first letter is one of the following:
F (Big Twin), M (Military), X (Sportster), or V (VRSC)
Letters are appended singly or in pairs, as follows:
B (Belt Drive), C (Classic or Custom), D (Dyna Glide), DG (Disk Glide), E (Electric start), F (Fat Boy (1990-present) or Foot-shift (1972 and prior)), H (High compression), L (Hydra Glide forks), LR (Low Rider), P (Police), R (Race or Rubber-mount), S (Sport or Springer), SB (Single belt final drive), ST (Softail), T (Touring), WG (Wide Glide), I (Fuel injection), SE (Screamin’ Eagle), U (Ultra)
Custom Vehicle Operations models can also have a number (2,3,4) added.
I dont know if its good for more horses, but I know for a fact that you can expect another 5mph on your top end.Binary Jay said:I heard if you put enough "Type-R" stickers on your car it will gain a few horses.
