With anticipation high for this one-off Honda development, the CBR1000RR SP boasts Öhlins front and rear suspension, Brembo mono block front brake callipers and a single seat unit. With an aggressive track stance, Honda’s road-legal CBR1000RR SP offers more balanced handling than ever before.
The 999.8cc inline, four-cylinder engine shares the same updated cylinder head as the standard 2014 CBR1000RR Fireblade, along with improved inlet/exhaust gas flow and combustion efficiency, and an extra peak power boost.
The CBR1000RR SP’s die-cast aluminium twin-spar frame is based on that of the standard machine, with modifications to match the Öhlins suspension. As on the CBR1000RR the aluminium gull-wing swingarm operates through MotoGP-derived Unit Pro-Link rear suspension. Fully adjustable, the 43mm inverted fork and rear shock were developed specifically for the CBR1000RR SP to offer superbly balanced all-round performance.
Brembo mono block four-piston callipers were chosen because of their compatibility and performance potential with the Öhlins fork. The calliper body is standard but Brembo manufactured special pistons for use in the new machine, with pad material designed to give consistent and linear feel when braking hard from high speed.
Cutting a striking form on the track or road, Honda’s CBR1000RR SP with its sleek single seat unit, features unique Tricolour livery that is complemented by Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP gold tyres.
The strictly limited CBR1000RR SP model will only be available once, be quick to secure yours today.
