Honda Super Sports Motorcycle Range
Since its original 1992 introduction, Honda’s iconic Fireblade has evolved into an incredible 1000cc sports motorcycle. It’s also been the base of a competitive race machine, on short circuits around the world and the roads of the Isle of Man TT.
Time and competition – marches on and for 2020, Honda is drawing a line under where the CBR1000RR Fireblade has been and looks forward to where it’s going.
The brand-new CBR1000RR-R SP Fireblade – has been created, with heavy involvement from Honda Racing Corporation, to carry the legend forward.
Leaning heavily on the engine and chassis technology of the RC213V-S ‘street-legal MotoGP machine’. with aerodynamics drawn from the RC213V MotoGP bike, the new Fireblade have been designed from the ground up – in terms of engine, handling and aerodynamics – for outright track performance.
The Fireblade’s evolution – since its introduction in 1992 – has been guided by the design philosophy of Total Control, and it has always set the benchmark for how a litre-class super sports machine should deliver its prodigious power.
2017 saw a major advance for the CBR1000RR Fireblade and whole a new chapter in its story. It was made much lighter and employed a higher-revving, more powerful engine, while also benefiting from a Showa 43mm ‘Big Piston’ inverted telescopic fork matched to the Balance Free Rear Cushion.
Featuring a Bosch 5-axis Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) working through the ECU in conjunction with a new Throttle By Wire (TBW) system, with 9-level Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) and ABS. The Riding Mode Select System offered an interface to adjust the machine’s power, engine braking and HSTC levels.
In the process of its transformation, the CBR650R has become a rare breed: a sport bike that provides similar pleasure, enjoyment and adrenaline to an RR machine, yet with enough practicality to make it a viable option as day-to-day transport in addition to weekend fun.
