Shortlist: Honda CBR600RR. Suzuki GSX-R600. Yamaha YZF-R6

Winner: Honda CBR600RR

Everybody who has had the pleasure of riding the Honda has come away raving about its pin-sharp handling and class-topping performance. But it’s not the only award it has won – it also gone the whole hog and claimed the MCN Machine of the Year award as well as the World and British Supersport championships in its first year.

" The RR is truly a fantastic bike. On a race track its handling means it can run with a FireBlade – that’s no mean feat, " said MCN Editor Marc Potter.

Mark Davies, Honda UK’s General Manager, Motorcycle Division, said: " It’s great to receive this on behalf of our design team and proves that MotoGP technology does benefit our customers. Winning two awards shows the CBR600RR is an all round package. "
