Once in a great while there comes a high performance machine so perfectly balanced and intuitive to operate that it becomes one with its operator, achieving seamless integration. The CBR1000RR SP is that machine. Starting with arguably one of the most balanced sporting platforms available, the CBR1000RR, engineers added top shelf componentry known for excellent feel, feedback and control. Decades from now, historians may look back and proclaim that the CBR1000RR SP was one of the last pure sporting machines ever built.
CHASSIS/SUSPENSION

Standard

  • The SP’s die-cast aluminum twin-spar frame is based on that of the standard CBR1000RR with modifications to match the Öhlins suspension. Tuning the frame to increase rider feedback with the suspension’s different performance parameters proved critical during development and the rigidity balance around the rear suspension mount has been revised to give more flex – and therefore feel – for traction.
  • The Öhlins inverted front fork has an outer diameter tube of 55 mm (1 mm more than the standard CBR1000RR's Showa unit) and the revised top and bottom yoke use a steel, rather than aluminum, steering stem. The top yoke features high precision CNC machining and features a greater surface area in contact with the forks, improving rigidity.
  • Specialists from Öhlins worked with Honda’s engineers and test riders during all stages of development. Fully adjustable, the 43 mm inverted fork and rear shock were developed specifically for the CBR1000RR-SP, to offer superbly balanced all-round performance and greater potential for cutting lap times on a closed circuit.
  • As on the CBR1000RR the aluminum gull-wing swingarm operates through MotoGP-derived Unit Pro-Link rear suspension. Rake is set at 23° 18’ with trail of 97.5 mm and wheelbase of 1,410 mm. curb weight is 200 kg (441 lb) with front/rear weight distribution of 52.6%/47.4%
  • The second-generation Honda Electronic Steering Damper (HESD) monitors speed and tailors damping force accordingly. It enhances stability at high speed by minimizing sudden steering angle changes, while also leaving the steering unrestricted – and light – at low speed.
  • Subtle changes raise the centre of gravity and improve fast side-to-side transition: seat height is higher by 4.2 mm, with 4.3 mm extra ground clearance. This results in a superior bank angle of 47°12’ compared to 46°20’ for the standard machine.
  • Brembo mono block four-piston calipers were chosen because of their compatibility and performance potential with the Öhlins fork. The caliper body is standard but Brembo manufactured special pistons for use in the CBR1000RR SP, with pad material designed to give consistent and linear feel when braking hard from high speed.
  • Centrally mounted 17.7-litre fuel tank is positioned low in the frame, increasing mass centralization and allowing for a more compact design.
  • The CBR1000RR-SP’s riding position is more aggressive than the standard RR's, for improved racetrack control, leverage and acceleration. The footpegs are set 10 mm further back and the handlebars are wider: 1° lower and 5° more forward. The rear subframe – with no need to support a pillion – is lighter and the revised seat material firmer while the windscreen is designed for improved high-speed aerodynamics.
  • 12-spoke cast aluminum wheels perfectly complement the new suspension setup. Super-sticky, track-ready – and fully road legal Pirelli Supercorsa SP tires are fitted front and rear.
Engine/Drivetrain

Standard

  • The MotoGP-derived slipper clutch ensures full power transmission together with ultra-smooth gear shifting and light feel at the lever. In the critical hard braking, down-shifting corner-entry phase it decreases the torque passed from engine to the rear wheel, reducing the chance of traction loss increasing stability.
  • PGM-DSFI delivers precise fuelling and easily controlled power delivery, especially at low speeds and low rpm, where response is particularly refined, predictable and progressive. At throttle openings of up to 25% the PGM-DSFI delivers relatively fine and consistent changes in power and torque output – perfect for extracting maximum drive at full lean. As throttle openings become larger, the changes in output are progressively greater and the overall result is an engine that responds with great accuracy to rider throttle input, giving superb feel from the rear tire and highly usable, linear acceleration.
  • The CBR1000RR-SP engine's cylinder head features polished inlet and exhaust ports with ‘gas-flowed’ combustion chambers to improve efficiency. Gas-flowing (flow-testing through an air-flow bench) effectively improves both the quality and quantity of airflow at high rpm when air resistance becomes much greater; increased combustion efficiency and outright power result. The valve seats have been matched to the cylinder head and the intake funnels are ‘slash cut’, a design used in WSB.
  • The SP differs from the regular CBR1000RR in the selection of ‘middle value’ pistons and con-rods as the engine is manufactured. Essentially a factory blueprint, each batch of pistons and rods are weighed and those that closely match the middle tolerance – and each other – are used. This injects an even greater level of balance into the engine, especially at the high rpm generated on track.
  • The CBR1000RR-SP shares the same smaller diameter exhaust pipe as the CBR1000RR for increased torque.

Additional Features

Standard

  • Line-beam headlight features two-piece reflector design utilizing two H7 bulbs for optimum light distribution and unique compact design.
