BORN TO RACE
Be in no doubt. The CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP is built for the track. This is where it belongs. It starts in the same pit lane as the standard Fireblade, but full Öhlins Smart Electronic Control (S-EC) suspension, Brembo master cylinder, brake lever, front and rear calipers and standard-fit quick shifter set it apart. Armed with class-leading 160kW peak power, the semi-cam gear engine has been upgraded with low- to mid-range acceleration boost and refined HSTC traction management. And while it is fully road legal, with lights, indicators and Smart Key, the Fireblade SP defines the ultimate racing motorcycle. One ready to overload adrenaline through every turn.
The perfect lap. That’s the impossible goal. And there are two involved in this pursuit; you and your bike. You’ve done the practice, clipped every apex and linked up corners. You’re at home on this track. So is your Fireblade SP. The engine’s delivering the performance you need, where you need it, while the chassis and electronics are generating huge grip. The speed and the handling confidence the aerodynamics deliver is incredible. You and your bike, as one. It’s where you both belong.
More low- and Mid-Range For Harder Corner Exit Acceleration
Producing 160kW at a stunning 14,500rpm the inline four-cylinder, semi-cam gear train engine shares the same bore and stroke, and friction-reducing technology as the RC213V race bike – with titanium con-rods, as well as forged aluminium pistons. New updates include a 43-tooth rear sprocket and optimisation of airbox funnels, inlet ports and 4-2-1 exhaust. So alongside the huge, high-rpm peak power, you now have a whole lot more low- and mid-range acceleration to drive even harder out of corners. An updated quick shifter delivers smoother, faster gear changes for even quicker lap times.
Helping You Go Faster Is What the Fireblade SP Does
You can manage every detail of your Fireblade SP’s engine performance. Three default riding modes offer base settings to work from, and via the 5-inch TFT screen, you can customise engine power, engine braking and wheelie control. To help you punch out of turns harder, we’ve used feedback from our HRC racers to update the 9-level Honda Selectable Torque Control. It’s smoother, more responsive to throttle input and makes good use of the engine’s extra low- and mid-range acceleration. To match, we’ve reduced the Throttle By Wire (TBW) return spring load to give even more linearity as you wind on the gas.
OBTi Management For the Perfect Setup
Using separated compression, rebound circuits and stepper motors to adjust damping, the Semi-active Öhlins S-EC 43mm NPX USD forks have been developed for racing use to offer precise front tyre feedback and grip. The result? Huge confidence to go for a faster lap time. The race-quality front end is matched by an Öhlins TT36 S-EC rear shock. To provide maximum control – and because conditions change very quickly on track – you can work from default Öhlins Objective Tuning Base interface (OBTi) setting with 3, instantly selectable pre-set modes to completely change your set-up allowing for reduced fuel load, tyre wear, or track conditions.
With Two-Mode ABS Control
Rigid, Brembo Stylema monobloc four-piston radial-mount brake calipers use less internal fluid volume for more immediate reaction. Operated by Brembo brake lever and master cylinder, they ensure massive, braking power. The rear Brembo brake caliper is the same design used by the RC213V. Two ABS modes give you choice of performance: SPORTS is biased toward road riding, while TRACK ups braking force for much higher track speeds. Brake force is also managed relative to lean angle while Rear Lift Control maintains forward-pitch stability – so you can concentrate on getting in, and out, of a corner faster.
