CBR1000RR-R Fireblade (SP)

Made for Racing

This is why we race. Why we’ve always raced, and it is feedback from HRC and our riders that’s produced the new CBR1000RR-R Fireblade. It’s got more mid-range power from intake and cylinder head upgrades, with revised gearbox ratios for incredible drive out of corners. We’ve maintained peak power, with improved response from Two Motor Throttle By Wire control that makes every rpm count and puts pinpoint throttle precision in your right hand. Weight savings and a finely rebalanced chassis rigidity boost handling and grip feel. Updated fairing winglets maintain downforce with less steering effort at speed and, whether you’re running through bends on a winding road or hitting apexes lap after lap, the new riding position opens up total freedom of control. Made to race? No, born to race.


Every ride starts with the full colour 5-inch TFT screen where you set up the Fireblade the way you want it. For precision setup you can now enter your weight to get the perfect spring preload setting, front and rear. And choose from the 3 default riding modes or go fully custom between 5-level Power modes, 9-level HSTC plus 3-level Engine Brake and Wheelie Control. A 3-level Honda Electronic Steering Damper (HESD) maintains high speed stability and new, 3-level ABS Braking now includes Race mode, which turns off ABS for the rear caliper, allowing hard use of the rear brake if required. Another new display feature to protect the engine from cold is the redline point, which slides up from 8,000rpm only when the operating temperature is reached.

Model Features

1000cc DOHC Inline Four-Cylinder Engine

We’ve kept the short-stroke, semi-cam design’s stunning 160kW / 215hp peak power @14,000rpm, but now it develops stronger, with more much precise mid-range punch the moment the throttle is trapped on.

Third generation Öhlins Smart Electronic Control (S-EC3.0) offers refined choice of settings, with new preload guide screen

The CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP is the first production bike in the world to feature the third generation Öhlins 43mm S-EC3.0 (SV) NPX USD forks. Using an internal spool valve structure, they improve ride quality and turning stability.

New Winglet Aerodynamics

HRC have designed new winglets which maintains downforce and front-end grip – but with 10% less yaw moment, delivering high-speed handling agility.
