2017 CBR1000RR SP
The CBR1000RR SP goes to the next stage of Total Control. Power to weight ratio is improved by 14% – reaching the best level ever for the Fireblade thanks to a 15kg weight reduction and 8kW power boost.
It’s also equipped with semi-active Öhlins Electronic Control suspension, plus Honda Selectable Torque Control, Selectable Engine Brake, new ABS, Quickshifter, Downshift Assist, Riding Mode Select System and Power Selector. RC213V-S MotoGP derived technology elevates the riding experience even further.
2018 CBR1000RR ABS
Three factors are key to the essence of the new CBR1000RR Fireblade: less weight, more power, and electronics to help the rider wherever and however they’re riding. The new electronic control system provides constant, selectable and fine-tunable rider support. It works the Honda Selectable Torque Control system (HSTC) that precisely manages rear wheel traction via the FI-ECU and Throttle By Wire (TBW). The new ABS braking (also managed by the IMU) offers Rear Lift Control (RLC) and the ability for hard, safe trail braking into corners.
Ninety percent of the main components have been changed in a relentless search for incremental weight reduction in every area. The engine revs harder and higher, with a much higher compression ratio and revised cam timing, and uses the TBW (a first for an inline four-cylinder Honda) and Accelerator Position Sensor (APS) also developed for use on the RC213V-S. Thanks to the use of magnesium and careful assessment and lightening of individual parts the engine also carries 2kg less. The new titanium exhaust muffler saves weight and aids mass centralisation. Overall the Fireblade is a full 15kg lighter than the outgoing model, with a wet weight of 196kg.
2019 CBR1000RR SP2
The real differences between the CBR1000RR SP and CBR1000RR SP2 – and what gives the Fireblade SP2 the ultimate racing potential – is what lies inside the engine and in turn the modification options which give full play to an evolved race ready performance.
The CBR1000RR SP2 has exclusive gold Marchesini aluminium forged wheels to reduce front/rear wheel inertia by 18/9%. Marchesini and Honda achieved a high level of durability and reliability using a racing design, proven in the most extreme international motorcycle competitions.
Combining the design and production process of Marchesini with the know-how of Honda allowed dramatic improvement of the strength and weight balance of the wheels, in comparison with the general cast units.
