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.
