Honda Fireblade SP 2020 Model

THE RACE-TRACK IS YOUR PLAYGROUND


It’s where you live – and truly come alive. Performance is everything and you’ll take any advantage to hunt out speed.
We have built the new CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP for you. It starts out in the same Pit Lane as the CBR1000RR-R – which means MotoGP technology for the engine, chassis and aerodynamics. But we’ve added second generation Öhlins Smart Electronic Control (S-EC) suspension and an upgraded user interface to go with it. And a new Brembo braking package including Stylema front brake calipers, brake lever and rear caliper. The CBR1000RR-R SP is not built with a road-rider’s needs in mind; the race-track is where it belongs. And while it is fully road legal, with lights, indicators, full-colour TFT display and Honda Smart Key, the CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP is our ultimate statement of pure super sports aggression. Enjoy it.

You’ve carried speed onto the straight. Braked a metre later. Hit the perfect apex, your body far over kerb paint with knee slider skating lightly. The front tyre bites, on edge. Instinctively you wind on the throttle hard feeling the rear tyre slide. Just enough. The machine is working for you. Meet our new track missile – the CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP. It is based on the CBR1000RR-R Fireblade. Which means an inline four-cylinder engine is packed with our MotoGP technology, just like the aluminium frame, swingarm and aerodynamics. But then, for the RR-R SP, we step it up. We’ve added second generation Öhlins Smart Electronic Control (S-EC) suspension and interface. And a new Brembo braking package. Plus a quickshifter. This is our ultimate Fireblade.

Take a closer look at the unique features that make the CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP born to race.

Second-generation semi-active Öhlins Electronic Control (S-EC) The Öhlins NPX fork uses a pressurised damping system to minimise cavitation, resulting in more stable damping control and improved bump absorption at high speeds. Feel for front tyre grip is also enhanced. The rear shock is also by Öhlins; the upper mount attaches at the back of the engine to enhance high-speed handling.

Launch control for fast starts

The CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP is equipped with Launch Control for race starts. It limits engine rpm at 6,000, 7,000, 8,000 and 9,000rpm set-points, even with a wide-open throttle, letting you focus on clutch release (and lights) alone. A quickshifter is also fitted as standard, with performance optimised for racetrack performance and reliability.

Brembo Stylema front brake calipers

Incredible braking power is provided by the latest Brembo Stylema monobloc four-piston radial-mount front brake calipers – with Brembo brake lever and master cylinder to match. The calipers maintain rigidity but are 7% lighter, with less internal fluid volume for more immediate reaction.
