Superbikes are special machines, offering levels of power, handling, and refinement no other streetbikes can match. The Honda CBR1000RR SP is even more of a standout.
The CBR1000RR SP has been completely redesigned and given some serious performance upgrades. This limited-edition machine is fully street legal, but it’s really at home on a track day. Compact, slim, and light, it’s also the first CBR we’ve offered with throttle-by-wire technology, and that makes a whole realm of engine performance choices available.
Before you even start it up, you’ll notice how light and narrow the new CBR1000RR SP is. It’s more aerodynamic, too. The engine is all new, with a 13:1 compression ratio, new pistons and new cams. A titanium cam cover, ignition cover and sump make it super light. The SP’s titanium muffler shaves pounds. Power is up from last year’s CBR1000RR SP as well—by a lot.
More weight savings come from a lighter frame and seat subframe, and a thin-wall titanium fuel tank. Suspension on the SP is a track-ready Ohlins system front and rear.
But the best news yet may be the SP’s Honda Selectable Torque Control. With three pre-programmed modes and two more that are fully customizable, you can fine-tune your bike’s power delivery with the push of a button.
So zip up your leathers. Buckle up your helmet. And get ready to experience one of the best Honda Superbikes ever.
This bike is a MUST-SEE. Very well maintained with lots of extras, including: Yoshimura exhaust, ASV levers, and tinted double-bubble windscreen.
