Honda has revealed a lot of products at EICMA and the CBR1000RR-R Fireblade and Fireblade SP got the most attention.
At the 2019 EICMA, Japanese two-wheeler manufacturer Honda has revealed the new CBR1000RR-R Fireblade and CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP. As seen in the images, the design looks super gorgeous and these motorcycles exude a sense of sportiness unlike anything else.
The motorcycle is inspired by the RC213V MotoGP machine and its street legal RC213V-S sibling. Powering the 2020 Honda CBR1000RR-R Fireblade is an inline-4 engine which unleashes 214.5 HP at 14,500 RPM and 113 Nm at 12,500 RPM. The motorcycle weighs 201 kgs.
Apart from the regular variant, Honda will also offer an SP variant with the CBR1000RRR-R Fireblade. It gets a second generation semi-active Ohlins Electronic Control with 43 mm NPX forks and Ohlins TTX36 Smart-EC rear shock, Brembo Stylema four-piston radial-mounted calipers at the front and a Brembo monoshock caliper at the rear, same one as that on the RC213V-S.
Both variants of the motorcycle get a Bosch six-axis IMU replacing the fixe-axis unit of the older model. Both variants also come with a lightweight Akrapovic titanium end-can. Honda is offering two colour options for the motorcycle – HRC-inspired Grand Prix Red and Matte Pearl Black.
