That’s all that matters when you’re charging hard on a circuit. And what the devastatingly fast Fireblade SP and SP2 are built for, with Öhlins Electronic Control (S-EC), plus advanced electronics: managing both the awesome four-cylinder engine and lightweight chassis.
With the CBR1000RR Fireblade as a base to go to the next level of total control, we’ve added semi-active Öhlins Electronic Control (S-EC) suspension to these two track-focussed weapons, plus Öhlins Objective Based Tuning interface (OBTi). They also pack compact 16L titanium fuel tanks, Brembo four-piston monobloc radial-mount brake calipers and quickshifters. If track days are your obsession, then the SP is the perfect tool. And if racing is in your blood, the SP2 is ready.
There are three 'blades; it’s an impressive trio.
|CBR1000RR Fireblade SP||Equipped with semi-active Öhlins Step motor-type Electronic Control suspension, plus Honda Selectable Torque Control (with built-in Wheelie Control and Rear Lift Control), Selectable Engine Brake, New ABS, Quickshifter (with Downshift Assist), Riding Mode Select System and Power Selector. RC213V-S MotoGP derived technology elevates the riding experience even further.|
|CBR1000RR Fireblade SP2||A road legal homologation special, it uses the Fireblade SP as a base, ready for race use with Marchesini wheels. The engine has a revised cylinder head: valves, combustion chambers and pistons–Racing kits are available.|
|CBR1000RR Fireblade||Equipped with Selectable Torque Control (with built-in Wheelie and Rear Lift Control), Selectable Engine Brake, New ABS brakes, an optional Quickshifter (with Downshift Assist), Riding Mode Select System, Power Selector and fully adjustable Showa suspension.|
Quickly flick through the advanced features of these extraordinary motorcycles.
Looking for the perfect track setup? Problem solved. S-EC provides three Active modes and three Manual modes to constantly manage damping of the 43mm NIX30 fork and TTX36 shock. And it’s a system that intuitively deals with the varied conditions road riding serves up.
On a race track, lean angles are greater and throttle openings are much wider. HSTC offers nine levels of intervention to manage rear real traction and has been enhanced to deliver smooth, uniform and precise control, as it works through the corner exit.
A 5-axis Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) measures the Fireblade SP’s dynamics and supplies data to the Öhlins Electronic Control ECU and the RMSS. This means that you can control all aspects of engine power and torque output, as well as rear wheel traction and handling.
On a race track it’s useful to manage rear wheel traction with the throttle but without losing speed through the front wheel rising too high. Wheelie Control is separate from HSTC to allow a high level of Wheelie Control with minimum HSTC. The wheel also lands smoothly.
The TBW’s Acceleration Position Sensor (APS) was developed on the RC213V-S. To speed up engine RPM decrease on corner entry the TBW motor works faster, for smoother deceleration and increased feel. Corner exit torque is also increased.
Giving ultimate control of the four-piston Brembo radial-mount monobloc calipers, the ABS delivers effective braking in a straight line and into a corner. For high-speed circuit use, its intervention level has been reduced and outright performance improved.
Every split second of time counts to put a fast lap together. The quickshifter delivers rapid, clutch-less gear shifts going up through the gearbox – and down, with an auto-blipper function. The Assist/Slipper Clutch also controls the rear wheel under hard braking.
As a machine built with a racer’s edge, the Fireblade SP goes from upright to full lean in a split second. The HESD automatically adjusts to manage front-end stability according to speed and lean angle.
To stand out in pitlane, the CBR1000RR Fireblade SP and SP2 come in unique paintwork: the famous Grand Prix Red HRC Tricolour. And marking it out as something even more special, it now features stronger White and Blue accent lines.
A road-legal homologation special, based on the SP the SP2 is born to race. The cylinder head and pistons are different, ready for further high-performance tuning and gold Marchesini wheels save unsprung weight—and look stunning.
The nearest thing to a pure factory race bike you can get. And if you want a real competitive edge race kits are available.
