2020 CBR1000RR-R Fireblade and SP
We are really looking forward to seeing the 2020 Blade, which represents a new chapter in Fireblade’s history. This new supersport’s bike is heavily inspired by the RC213V MotoGP machine and its street legal RC213V-S counterpart. In both variants, a cutting edge aerodynamic package works in tandem with a new Bosch six-axis IMU. In line with Honda’s mass centralisation philosophy, both the CRB1000RR-R Fireblade and CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP are equipped with a lightweight titanium Akrapovic exhaust end can. Both will be available in two colour schemes: an HRC-inspired Grand Prix Red and a Matte Pearl Black.
- Powered by the most powerful inline four cylinder engine that Honda has ever made
- Shares the same bore and stroke as the RC213V-S
- Delivers maximum power of 160kW @ 14500rpm and peak torque of 113Nm at 12500rpm
- Weights in at only 201kg
The CBR1000RR-R will also be available in an SP variant. The CBR1000RR-R SP will come complete with:
- Second generation semi-active Öhlins Electronic Control
- featuring 43mm NPX forks and Öhlins TTX36 Smart-EC rear shock
- New Brembo Stylema four-piston radial-mounted front calipers
- Rear Brembo monoblock caliper as used on the RC213V-S
