Honda CBR1000RR-R Fireblade and Fireblade SP: Updates
The updated Fireblade region gets some significant design updates over the outgoing range with the styling being prominently sharper on the update.

The update gets a sleek LED headlamps, and they are separated by a central ram-air duct. It facilitates an unobstructed flow of air to the intake port.
The great performance offered by the CBR1000RR-R sisters is a result of best in class drag coefficients that is achieved with the help of design features like minimal frontal area, extended lower fairings and aggressively angled side fairings- plus a variety of apertures, slits, and air channeling.
The updated CBR1000RR-R bikes get a 999.9 cc engine, four-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine which puts up powerful performance figures of 214 PS at14,500 RPM and peak torque output of 113 Nm at 12,500 RPM.
The updated Fireblade will be 5 kilograms heavier than the outgoing model, and it will now weight 201 kilograms. But with a powerful engine option and sound designing, it should not be a concern.
The Honda CBR1000RR-R gets an aluminum chassis which offers a greater flex eventually translating into improved rider feel. The bike also gets a new swingarm as well as a wheelbase of 1,455 mm.
As far as the suspension is concerned, the CBR1000RR-R Fireblade gets a Showa BPF fork at the front and a Showa BFRC-Light monoshock at the rear, while the expensive Fireblade SP gets Ohlins electronic suspension at the front and rear.
Though both the Fireblade variants get dual 330mm discs. The Fireblade gets Nissin calipers, the SP uses Brembos’ Stylema brake calipers.
Justifying the ultra-expensive price tag, the bikes offer a host of electronic rider aids assisted by the new Bosch six-axis IMU. Apart from this, they will get Dual-channel ABS, nine levels of traction controls, and all these configurations can be assessed through a 5.0-inch color TFT.
