The Electronic Combined Anti Lock Braking System (C-ABS) that distributes the stopping ability to the front and rear the brake, based on the system’s calculations when the lever or pedal is applied. The 2019 CBR600RR, available in November of 2018 is priced at $11,799 and the ABS version has an MSRP of $12,799.
