CBR1000RR Fireblade

CBR1000RR Fireblade

The 1992 debut of Honda’s world-changing CBR900RR Fireblade completely rewrote the design book of supersport motorcycles, introducing a remarkably compact and lightweight configuration.

 

With relatively tiny proportions and an unprecedented power-to-weight ratio, the Fireblade embodied the origin of the modern supersport motorcycle.

 

In 2012, the iconic machine celebrated its 20th anniversary with a the new model, which maintains the original’s ethos of ‘total control’, a philosophy that has been continually refined and evolved during those 20 years.

 

Two years on, and yet another chapter has been written in the remarkable Fireblade story with the introduction of the SP – the sharpest and most refined version since that original launch 22 years ago.

 

The street version of 2014 Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade SP is focused on track action – a great starting point for the Pata Honda World Superbike team. It features Ohlins front and rear suspension, Brembo mono block front brake calipers, a single seat unit and a special Tricolour paint.

 

It shares the standard CBR1000RR's uprated cylinder head and power boost, plus factory-matched engine internals, with frame revisions and new top and bottom yokes to suit. Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP tyres are the finishing touch.

 

The 999.8cc inline four-cylinder engine gets the same updated cylinder head as the standard 2014 CBR1000RR Fireblade, with improved inlet/exhaust gas flow and combustion efficiency, and the extra 2kW peak power boost.

 

However it features factory-matched pistons and con-rods, to ensure optimum internal balance. As a track-focused machine there's no provision for a pillion and a sleek single seat unit saves weight. Further marking the SP version out from standard is its own unique Tricolour paint – white and two-tone blue, with a central red stripe and trademark Honda gold wheels.
