Road Legal, Track Focused Sports Bike
In Japanese to give something 'edge' is to add polish. And for the dedicated track day goer that's exactly what the CBR1000RR Fireblade SP has been given: 'Total Control' with an extra edge. The chassis wears circuit-ready front and rear …hlins suspension plus Brembo four-piston mono block callipers, 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 an extra 2kW peak power boost. However the SP 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.
The CBR1000RR SP's 999.8cc, 16-valve inline four-cylinder engine has the same cylinder head updates as the standard machine. The MotoGP-derived slipper clutch ensures full power transmission together with ultra-smooth gear shifting and light feel at the lever
Combined with the chassis variations 'Total Control' is elevated to a whole new level and the CBR1000RR SP has the potential to turn in significantly lower lap times than the standard machine.
