The Honda CBR600RR C-ABS is the first supersport bike to be fitted with anti-lock brakes. In this weeks’ MCN, on sale now, we’ll show you how it compares to its rivals on the track. We’ll warn you now, the winner isn’t as surprising as the loser.

Here we’re showing you five official Honda accessories to fit to it, to sharpen up Honda’s perennial favourite.

Numberboard graphics (£30)
You’d be hard-pressed to make a more immediately noticeable difference to your bike’s appearance for less money than this. Some will love the sticker kit, some won’t. We do.

Carbon hugger (£150)
Genuine carbon-fibre topped off with a subtle Honda Racing logo. It’s almost a shame to use something this cute to keep road muck off your bike.

Solo seat conversion (£150)
Ditch the pillion and see your lap times tumble. Fitting a seat cowl is the perfect way to avoid giving anyone a lift. Oh, and they look cool, too.

Carbon heatshield (£100)
Your world will not fall apart if you don’t fit this to your CBR, but the worldwide carbon-fibre manufacturing industry will. So there’s your reason to chuck a ton at this official accessory.

Wheel trim (£35)
Save hours with a pinstriping brush – buy these easy-to-apply Honda stickers to your wheels. Honda say these three-part stickers are a perfect fit to the CBR’s 17-inch wheels.
