Honda Super Sports Motorcycle Range
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.
999cc liquid-cooled 4-stroke 16-valve DOHC inline-4, PGM-DSFI electronic fuel injection, Computer-controlled digital transistorised with electronic advance.
It’s also equipped with semi-active Ohlins 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.
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.
A SPORTS-ORIENTED PACKAGE
With effective but minimal fairing, the sports-oriented CBR650F is designed to conquer corners with ease while also being the ideal partner on busy urban streets.
Built on the same platform as its naked counterpart the CB650F, the CBR650Fs slim feel and high-set handlebars give excellent control and confidence while its sharp lines and racing livery are reminiscent of Hondas CBR legacy. The CBR650F is available in Australia in Sword Silver Metallic and Pearl Metalloid White.
For reliable stopping power in all conditions the twin 320mm wavy front and a single 240mm rear discs are complemented by standard fit ABS.
A POLISHED PACKAGE
Honda’s CBR600RR represented a big step forward for the 600cc Supersport class when it was launched in 2003. Constant development over the last decade has seen the CBR600RR evolve into one of the most polished packages ever produced in the Supersports arena.
Taking inspiration from Honda’s ultimate RC213V race machine, the CBR600RR offers a perfect balance of high-revving power, precise handling, light weight, and a compact overall size.
IDEAL LAMS PACKAGE

SET TO DOMINATE
Building on the platform of the CBR250R, for the CBR300R the fuel efficient, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine has been given an increased stoke to boost the capacity to 286cc. Acceleration has been greatly improved thanks to this larger capacity and the six-speed gearbox’s final drive ratio that has been lengthened for more efficient highway speed cruising. The PGM fuel injection has been remapped with a focus on crisp throttle response across the rev range and a new CBR500R-inspired muffler design with larger internal volume adds big-bore style and a pleasing exhaust note.
