Introduced in 1992, Honda’s iconic Fireblade took the world by storm, evolving into an incredible 1000cc machine while creating a legacy both on the track and off it. The motorcycle was also a blueprint for many competitive racing machines, and has even left a mark on The Isle of Man TT.
The legend of Fireblade has evolved to grow bigger with time, and in 2020 we are here with two new variants created along with Honda Racing Corporation. The CBR1000RR-R Fireblade and CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP are worthy of furthering the legacy of the original Fireblade.
BREMBO BRAKES (EXCLUSIVE TO SP)
The CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SPu2019s front brake discs are 330mm in diameter to improve braking force. The bike features Brembo Stylema front calipers while the rear caliper is the same as the Brembo used for RC213V-S. Even the brake master cylinders and front-brake levers are supplied by Brembo, offering comprehensive braking performance.
FULL-COLOUR TFT METER
The CBR1000RR-R Fireblade is equipped with a larger instrument screen with a higher resolution than previous CBR models. You can choose from a menu of screen setting options that display the information you want in a format you prefer, with items like engine temperature, riding modes, speedometer and tachometer, shifter setting, ABS level, gear position, remaining fuel, and much more.
HONDA SELECTABLE TORQUE CONTROL (HSTC)
With Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC), weu2019ve got your back while you remain in control. Hereu2019s how it works: the system automatically adjusts engine power to optimize torque at the rear wheel, reducing rear-wheel slip. You get your choice of five power curves, ten torque control levels, three engine braking levels, and now three selectable levels of wheelie control so itu2019s easier than ever to dial your motorcycle in at the track.
POWER ON DEMAND
The new CBR1000RR-R uses an all-new Bore and Stroke (81mm x 48.5mm), same as the MotoGPu2019s RC213V motorcycle. Armed with finger-follower rocker arms, this design reduces the inertia weight of the valve system. DLC (diamond-like carbon) coating reduces friction resistance on surfaces sliding against the cam and tappet shim. The pistons are forged out of A2618 aluminium, the same material used in the RC213V. Each piston is now lighter by approximately 5% compared to the previous model, even though the bore is bigger. Improvements in the crankshaft and intake valve angle increase the ventilation efficiency. All of these upgrades together contribute to the CBR1000RR-Ru2019s higher redline.
Eliminating the traditional keyed ignition not only adds convenience, but also lets us streamline the intake ducting for better airflow. Plus, it gives the top tripleclamp the look that you would see on true racing motorcycles.
ELECTRIFYING TITANIUM MUFFLER
This Speed Roadster is equipped with a Titanium Muffler, just like the MotoGP bikes. Itu2019s lightweight and comes with an internal exhaust valve made for supreme performance and the roar-like growl.
THROTTLE-BY-WIRE SYSTEM (TBW)
The CBR1000RR-R Firebladeu2019s throttle-by-wire system smoothens and improves throttle response, especially at the critical initial throttle opening. Plus, adopting TBW makes it possible to integrate the CBR1000RR-R Firebladeu2019s riding mode system.
The CBR1000RR-R Fireblade is equipped with winglets which effectively generate downforce at track speeds. Three wings are installed in each of the right and left ducts in order to address downforces.
