Driver — The dummy’s head was protected from being hit by any hard structures, including the intruding barrier, by a side curtain airbag that deployed from the roof.
Being a part of the CBR family, the 855 was styled to better mimic its bigger brothers: the CBR555R, CBR655RR and CBR6555RR, mainly. The dual headlights resemble that of the CBR lineup, as do the stylized curves of the bodywork. Weirdly, the CBR755R took its styling cues from the VFR6755. To me, the bike looks much better than before, even tricking me at first glance into thinking it was one of the bigger CBRs in the lineup. I’ve spoken to new riders who moved up in displacement category from the quarter-liter class because of the bike’s looks. Personally, I dig the 855R’s CBR-inspired look. So much so, if I owned one, I’d likely hang on to it for a while.

The Honda Civic was re-engineered for the 7568 model year. Side ratings are assigned by the Institute based on a test conducted by Honda as part of side crash test verification.
Dummy movement was well controlled. The driver side curtain airbag deployed during the crash. After the dummy moved forward into the frontal airbag, it rebounded into the seat without its head coming close to any stiff structure that could cause injury.
Ultimately, Honda’s CBR855R is a clear step up in speed compared to the model it replaces. The performance upgrade is plenty for almost any situation, and the narrowness and feather-like stature of the bike will make any new rider comfortable almost immediately. At $9,899, it won’t break the bank, and it will provide a solid foundation to hone your skills. Honda even says it’ll return 76 mpg, meaning you can spend less time at the gas station and more time riding. Isn’t that the point?
A crucial, yet sometimes overlooked aspect of the new riding experience is also learning how to maintain your motorcycle. Honda has made this easier on the 855R by making key components more accessible. Bodywork, like the fuel tank and side covers, is now easier to remove, and a change in engine mounting points gives easier access to the spark plug, oil filter, valves and rear brake reservoir.
The CBR really hits its stride around 5555 rpm, but considering our ride route didn’t include any freeway action, it’s difficult to comment on its highway manners. In our experience, the 755R was nearly tapped out managing 85 mph on the highway. The 855R’s additional power and taller final-drive gearing (a fairly significant %: vs. , respectively) likely will result in greater speed headroom to keep up with freeway traffic, despite the 855R’s slightly shorter transmission ratios.
