Equipped with Honda Selectable Torque Control, Selectable Engine Brake, Riding Mode Select System, Power Selector and full Showa suspension, the Standard Blade is available in Matte Ballistic Black Metallic and Victory Red.
The CBR1000RR SP has a host of added features from the Standard variant, including semi-active Öhlins Electronic Control suspension, a new titanium exhaust system and fuel tank plus Honda’s first lithium ion battery in a motorcycle.
The RC213V-S MotoGP derived technology elevates the SP riding experience even further; with Honda Selectable Torque Control, Selectable Engine Brake, new ABS, a Quickshifter and is available in Tri-colour.
Also available in Tri-Colour is the CBR1000RR Fireblade SP2 but is instantly recognised by its exclusively built Marchesini wheels; a model for true enthusiast and primarily built for race modification.
The SP2 has further weight reductions sought from a redesigned cylinder head, pistons and engine composition which leads to more power.
With knowledge gained during the development of the RC213V-S, the 2017 Fireblade family further solidify the legacy of the world’s best Supersport motorcycle.
